Excursion on Cozumel: Snorkeling from the shore – nature beaches - Tequila Tasting

This private Cozumel tour takes us on a beautiful scenic route to the south of the island. On the way, small sandy beaches alternate with rocky shoreline that invite you to snorkel. We stop at two different stunning spots for snorkeling. Our guide introduces the snorkeling equipment and the area, and then we enter the water. This tour is ideal for snorkeling beginners. There are Caribbean fish and beautiful coral formations to see. At each stop, we spend about 30 - 40 minutes in the water. We continue the island tour along the almost untouched east coast of Cozumel. Here, we have many viewpoints for taking some breath-taking pictures. After about 20 kilometers (12 miles) of immaculate coastline, the coastal road leads inland and we can stop at a Tequila Museum. Try the national drink of Mexico and learn more about its production. After this amazing experience, we head back to the city San Miguel de Cozumel.
