All of this at your pace with your private driver and van for the day!
Your Cozumel Private Highlights and Shopping Excursion starts when you are greeted by your English speaking, certified local guide and driver, directly at your cruise terminal. From there you will head into town where you will pass through downtown, the neighborhoods and outskirts while your experienced guide will tell you the story of Cozumel and its history, before heading across the island to the "other" side of Cozumel, the east coast.
On your way, enjoy a Tequila Tour and see how this world famous Mexican liquor is grown, harvested, processed and bottled. Throughout the tour you can taste several types of Tequila such as Blanco, Añejo, Reposado, etc. Gain a new appreciation for this Mexican favorite beverage! After the Tequila Tour, you will be able to purchase bottles of tequila if you want.
Then continue to the east side, the uninhabited "virgin side" of Cozumel with miles of coast line, interesting rock formations, white sandy beaches and the wild open turquoise ocean...some of the best sightseeing in Cozumel, Mexico. Protected by the government from development, there are just a couple of small beach bars/restaurants and you will stop at the most famous one, Coconuts Bar and Grill is on the highest point on Cozumel Island at a whopping 41ft above sea level!
Coconuts Bar and Grill Restaurant offers excellent drinks, ice cold beer and great food in a casual atmosphere and surrounded by natural beauty.
The tour continues around Cozumel island past Punta Sur Eco Park and to "El Cedral", the first settlement on the island and an ancient Maya post. Here you still see the small but important remains of a Mayan ruin and the first church of Cozumel, which was build adjacent to the ruin. Your guide will tell you how El Cedral played a significant role in the history of Cozumel. There you will also find numerous handcraft stores with souvenirs, jewelry, clothes and trinkets. Guests of Shore Excursioneer enjoy a special 20% discount on black coral purchases at the designated store.
Then it is off to return to Cozumel downtown, for some serious shopping! On the main street and plaza in Cozumel, you will find numerous choices from tequila to sombreros, fine class jewelry, diamonds, silver, t-shirts, etc, etc. Your guide will gladly assist you in finding that special item and of course the best deals.
Once you are shopped out, your private driver will take you back to the comfort of your ship or if you want, you can remain in downtown Cozumel to do more exploring and return to your ship later at your convenience and expense.
