Perfect for the whole family: Discover Mexico and a chocolate workshop for the kids, plus tequila tasting for the parents!
My husband and I enjoyed this excursion tremendously. The only downfall to this trip was the walk to the facility. Also, the numbers on the receipt were incorrect. However, once we got there, a nice man named Memo took good care of us. We enjoyed making chocolate, the chocolate mole and other goodies were delicious. We enjoyed learning about tequila and the margarita was delicious. Lunch was great and the facility provides a ride back to the cruise port. Nice was to spend a day and we highly recommend it!
Wonderful experience. We really enjoyed this tour. We started with a complimentary margarita and then moved on to an indoor art exhibit. Next, we made our own chocolate and had a small tasting. We continued our tour with the outdoor bar area and a walk through the miniatures park. Our guide, Carlos Bou was very informative and friendly. At the end of the park, we observed a rain dance by the Pamplanta flyers. We then participated in a tequila tasting and a had yummy taco bar lunch. I would definitely recommend this tour.
There were 7 of us. This tour was fantastic!!!! Never realized there was that much to learn about tequila. Making the chocolate was fun. Found out chocolate and tequila go together very well!!! the taco bar food was incredible. Salivating just remembering. Martin was an incredible tour guide. We 7 ladies enjoyed it so much that the guys are going on this cruise in May and they will be taking this excursion. Told them to ask for Martin. Have to take a taxi to get there, but they provide the transportation back to the ship.
It was a lot of fun. We got to learn about historic Mexican art, architecture, and traditions. We loved getting to make our own bars of chocolates and trying all the different chocolates samples that they had for us. We enjoyed the scale replicas and the pole ceremony that we got to watch. The tequila tasting was incredibly enjoyable and informative. All in all this was a great non-beach way to spend a day in Cozumel
We had so much fun!!
Tour was very informative overall.
We came in on a cruise with NCL and decided to book though here instead of paying more for less via the cruise line offered excursions.
The downside is with transportation. Our ship docked at the port in downtown Cozumel and we thought we could walk to Discover Mexico but after 20 minutes we jumped in a cab which was only a 10 fee for about 2 miles.
Carlos was our guide. He was outstanding. This tour was a great balance of history and culture combined with the fun of tequila tasting and great Mexican food and margaritas. I highly recommend it.
The tour is conducted at the Discover Mexico facility which is very near the Playa Maya port walking distance. It is located further from the port located downtown where our cruise ship was docked. The cab ride following the tour was included but the cab ride from downtown to the facility was 10 US dollars.
This was one of the best high lights of our trip to Cozumel. Thanks to Memo for making this the most memorable experiences we have experienced. The chocolate was awesome. Learning about tequila was just fascinating. If you get a chance to do this on your trip to Cozumel, please do. you will not be disappointed.
I did this tour with 2 of my girlfriends, and we had a wonderful time. Memo was an awesome and knowledgable guide. I would highly recommend this tour.
