Leon Tours Cozumel: Experts for your Mexico vacation
Excursions and cultural tours without mass tourism
Leon Tours is a small family-run travel agency headquartered on the tropical island of Cozumel. We offer excursions on Cozumel and to the most beautiful attractions of the Riviera Maya. Specializing in the Yucatan peninsula, its famous underwater world and its highly interesting cultural sites, we have put together a selected program for our guests in one of the safest regions of Mexico.
Long expertise in tourism
The owners Birgit and Gerson have been working in tourism for many years. Both are part of the Mexican tour guide syndicate and are often booked by cruise ships for cultural tours on Cozumel. In 2016, they came up with the idea of offering similar excursions in smaller groups as well as in a family atmosphere. This is how Leon Tours, based in Cozumel, was born.
Birgit is originally from Munich in Germany and came to Cozumel as a diving instructor. There she met Gerson and they have a son. Gerson has a great knowledge of Mexican history and Mayan culture, and gives tours in English, Spanish and German.
Selected offer on Cozumel excursions in small groups and individual atmosphere
We have created carefully designed offers, with the main focus being on Cozumel excursions for cruise ship passengers and guests that stay on the Riviera Maya. We look after these tours personally and with great dedication. Some standard tours complete our catalogue, such as snorkeling tours on Cozumel.
