Best tour anywhere to learn how to really enjoy you tequila. Ask for Ruy!
We booked this tour on our own instead through cruise ship. For 5 more than the ship price the chocolate workshop was included. It was also 8 for the cab. The chocolate workshop was well worth that. A great place to get an overview of Mexico, history, art, geography, culture. Another couple did not arrive on time for our tour so we had an individual tour with our excellent guide, John. When the buses came with all the people from the ship and they had large groups it made me appreciate the individualized attention we received. Tasting was informative and lunch was authentic. Tour wouldn't be for everyone but highly recommend for first time adult visitors to Mexico.
A wonderful way to learn about the Mexican culture and traditions. Our guide, Natascha was a delight! Such fun and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed learning about chocolate and making the bars. Unfortunately, we left them behind in our stateroom of the boat so we never got to taste the final product.
The tequila workshop was a class act all the way! Natascha provided us with such insight and appreciation for tequila and its origin. We learned so much and had a great time!
We found our way to the Discover Mexico Park via Taxi 11 from where our ship docked. Although we were early, we were greeted by our guide Rocio and shown a place to wait. Once our party was assembled, we received a small margarita sample and then Rocio took over and did a fantastic job. We learned much about the history of Mexico and in particular Cozumel. There is a neat little museum at the beginning of the tour. We took a leisurely walk through and area of miniature pyramids and Rocio explained many of them and how they were used in earlier times. We went to an area where we learned about chocolate, had a frozen chocolate drink and then made our own chocolate bars. Rocio lead us through the tequila tasting and shared interesting history and manufacturing facts. We had a margarita and them some tacos for lunch. Although we were there longer than expected, it was a fantastic day!! Transportation back to the dock was provided.
After reading all the great reviews for this tour, I took the chance and booked it for my daughter and myself. I have to agree with all the reviews. This was a fun and very informative tour. The facts and information about Chocolate, Mexico and of course Tequila was great. The Taco lunch was awesome. Our guide, Rocio, was very friendly. I highly recommend this tour.
What a fabulous experience - from making your own chocolate to watching the flying Mayan dancers!!! Of course the best part was the Tequila tasting.....loved this and our guide Mike was superb!!!
If you're in Cozumel looking for a taste of Mexican culture, a nice break from the cruise ship atmosphere, this is the place! I loved the art exhibit, the chocolate-making, and tequila tasting. The gardens with 120:1 replicas of Mexico City and the Mayan/Aztec ruins were an unexpected pleasure. Food was authentic and guides were delightful.
We had a great host, Martin, and enjoyed the chocolate tasting as well as the tequila tasting. Both were lots of fun.
This tour was definitely worth it! Ruy was an amazing guide. Thoroughly enjoyed everything from the tour of the museum to the chocolate bar making to the Jose Cuervo tequila tasting to the authentic Mexican lunch to the amazing flyers. The day was a real treat!
Martin our tour guide was totally amazing. Both my husband and I loved this tour. Tequilla tasting was our favorite part, but all was great!
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
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.
Great tour with a small group of people, 6. Our guide did a excellent job of explaining everything as we proceeded through the tour. It was a fun and learning experience.
We absolutely loved this tour. I'm really glad that we booked a guided tour for Discover Mexico, instead of just paying for admission. We had a personal tour guide for our family who expedited everything. Making the chocolate was a lot of fun, and the complimentary margarita might be the best margarita I've ever had. Everything was very informative and interesting.
This tour was a lot of fun!!! Our tour guide, Martin, was very nice and accomodating the whole time. I highly recommend this tour!!!! Ask for Martin!!!
Great tour with the lunch and margaritas! Making chocolate and tasting tequila was fun. Add folk art and dance and it was a great day.
