Excursion on Cozumel: Punta Sur Eco park – Lighthouse – Lagoons – Beach Break - Downtown – Tequila Tasting

This private Cozumel Island Tour takes us along a beautiful scenic road to the south of Cozumel. EW visit the Punta Sur Eco Park and drive on a dirt road into the park.

Private Cozumel Island Tour: Punta Sur Eco Park – Entry fee included

The Punta Sur National Park is one of the most beautiful attractions on Cozumel. First, we stop at a beautiful lagoon. The guide will try to spot crocodiles in the mangrove swamps. From an observation tower you have an excellent view over the lagoon. Look out for various birds and other creatures as your guide explains more about Cozumel wildlife. Sometimes we are lucky and see flamingoes.

A small Mayan ruin from the 14th century introduces you to the Mayan history of the Island. Climb 132 steps to the top of a lighthouse - and you enjoy one of the most beautiful views over the southern part of Cozumel. Discover the small museum next to the lighthouse. It has some surprises from the time of the ancient Maya and from the time of the pirates and smugglers on Cozumel.

Now it is time to relax on one of the most beautiful beaches of Cozumel. Enjoy your beach break and relax in the sun, have a Mexican meal or swim to the offshore reef to snorkel there (weather permitting). Your private guide will be happy to take you there.

Cozumel Island Tour: Downtown

The nice city center of San Miguel de Cozumel has souvenir stores, restaurants and bars. The clock tower is one of the oldest buildings in Cozumel and survived all hurricanes so far. Take your time to go shopping and stroll around the lovely center of Cozumel.

Cozumel Island Tour: Tequila Tour and Tasting

Learn about the Mexican national drink Tequila which is made from Blue Agave. Your guide will show you Mexican Tequila traditions and you can try several Margaritas and Tequila. This is a fantastic end of your private Cozumel Island Tour. If you would like to skip the Tequila Tour and do something else instead, your guide will be glad to recommend you additional stops.

Our guide Birgit made this tour very flexible and asked us for our wishes, but also gave a lot of recommendations. She herself was a very sympatic person. The tour was very informative and we had a lot of fun. Highly recommenden. Price was also appropriate.

We were traveling on a private tour to the Punta Sur National Park. Everything relaxed and no rush. The island tour was very individual. Birgit has managed to explain everything on the fantastic nature reserve Punta Sur on Cozumel and to show a restaurant "away from tourism" with a great view.

As part of our Central America cruise, we also had a stop in Cozumel and already booked a private tour with Leon Tours from Germany. Birgit informed us in advance about the excursion possibilities during our unfortunately short stay. We were picked up punctually at the harbor and got to know lonely beaches, a beautiful nature, the history of Cozumel, the best mojito in the world and a very sympathetic tour guide despite another 6 ships and 25,000 visitors. It was a great day, thank you Birgit!

We booked a private tour with 7 people with Leon Tours to the Punta Sur National Park on Cozumel. Birgit was waiting for us right in front of the Hard Rock Cafe, where we started with a comfortable minibus. The park was really impressive and Birgit gave us a lot of interesting information. She also competently answered questions. In the park itself, there are crocodiles and friendly raccoons, flamingos and iguanas. You can also go up a lighthouse and enjoy the wonderful view. We went then together to the beautiful beach and then went snorkelling with Birgit, just fantastic. In addition, she has completely adjusted to our wishes and extended the tour, because we wanted to stay a bit longer on the beach (of course, for free). If I am back on Cozumel (maybe soon for 2 months ;-)), I would book again with Birgit without hesitation.
