San Gervasio was a sacred mayan site dedicated to the goddess Ixchel (goddess of fertility) plus a estrategic site for commerce and politics in the area. You can become part of the mayan culture and its mysteries. Don’t miss on mayan history!
Tequila History & Tasting Tour
A Cozumel trip would not be complete without tequila – that liquor from the agave, sacred to the Aztecs, has a rich history in Mexico. The blue agave’s tequila is still sacred to Mexicans and tourists alike – and should not be missed. In an open-air building sit rows and rows of tequila bottles. The tour is interesting and you will love the tastings, in small paper cups. The “good stuff” is indeed silky smooth, but you may have to suffer through “cherry,” and “orange” tequila, though the almond tequila has a smoky flavor and the coffee tequila has a strong, good taste, as well. The cream tequila tastes a little like amaretto. The shots are small, but numerous.The mezcal, as expected, is strong.
Playa Palancar (Beach)
Is one of the favorite local Cozumel beaches on the leeward side of the island. It has charm and has a few creature comforts. One of the specialties on the Menu is Fish Tacos. Just beyond the restaurant is one of Cozumel’s sandy beaches in all its glory! Lots of tropical foliage around and a very comfortable covered hammock area to rest in. They run snorkel trips to Colombia and Palancar reefs, the boats come to the beach and pick you up or just tip a snorkel guide so he can show you the best spots to see fish & marine life and you can snorkel close to shore on your own.
Is preserved in its most natural state. The large rock formations jut out into the open ocean. El Mirador was carved by years of ocean waves splashing against the rocks. El Mirador consists large rock formations which can be climbed and walked across to the end, where the ocean spray meets El Mirador. The rock formations are craggy in spots and have some natural bridges and tidal pools whirling around. There are uneven spots and some holes in the rocks to be aware of when walking across El Mirador.
A place where mayan crafts are made. During your visit here will talk you about how it's made the crafts and what material are employed to build it since mayan times, and how preserve this culture with the practice of mayan technique.
