Description

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

This private Cozumel tour takes us along a beautiful scenic road to the south of Cozumel. There we visit the Punta Sur Eco Park and drive on a dirt road into the park. First, we enjoy a magnificent view over the nature of Cozumel, including the coast and lagoons. Maybe we will even spot a crocodile in the mangrove swamps. A small ruin which is visible nearby is from the time of the ancient Maya. Our next destination is a beautiful beach where you can swim to a small reef and snorkel there (if conditions permit). There are sunbeds and beach umbrellas available for guests to relax in the shade. A typical Mexican lunch is included in the tour price and you can choose between meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. If you like, you can also take a boat trip through the mangrove lagoon where the Crocodiles of Cozumel live (only at certain hours). After a long swim in the beautiful Caribbean waters, we visit the lighthouse of Punta Sur Eco Park and the small museum. After the 132 steps of the lighthouse, you have a magnificent view over the coastal and lagoon landscape of Cozumel and the Punta Sur National Park. In the museum we learn more about the flora and fauna of the island and about the mysterious time of the pirates. On the way to the city center San Miguel de Cozumel we learn even more about the history of the island. This beautiful tour ends with a visit of the city center. If you want, you can participate in a tequila tasting and learn more about the national drink of Mexico.

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.
