What people are saying about San Miguel de Cozumel

Sergio was our guide and he was excellent. Highly recommend the tour and ask for Sergio to be your tour guide. He took us to several different places in Cozumel and in between stops would give us information on places we were passing by or would answer any questions we had. Our meeting spot was like 4 or 5 blocks (like a 5-10 min walk) once outside the port. If you can walk it do so because the taxi driver charged us $15 to go that short distance. We took the taxi thinking it would be $2-3 each since it was like that in the other places we had been.

Excellent activity, we are delighted! Good contact with the organizer, easy support, Thomas is a very nice guide and very reassuring, brilliant pink buggy. We visited the tequila factory (20 minutes are enough) and toured the island visiting the wilder east coast, splendid landscapes, stop according to your wishes for photos and swimming, then typical meal and snorkel for the rest of the trip. 'afternoon. Very nice day ! Thanks a lot !

Very nice activity, from the pick-up through the snoerkling, the beach of EL Cielo until the meal on the deserted beach. We had a very nice afternoon. I recommend this activity!

Enrique was very patient and thorough in training my girls scuba diving. William clicked great photos. It was a wonderful experience.

It was a lot of fun to tour. If you get a guide, choose Tommas!
