What we will do
  • Our Jeeps are waiting for us at the port ready to take us on our excursion. After a short safety briefing, we set off towards the Punta Sur Ecological Park, an amazing nature reserve home to the remains of the pre-Columbian civilization and a unique wildlife.
  • Among the mangroves covering the reserve, we might spot some crocodiles that have found their natural habitat here as well as iguanas and numerous bird species. We also stop by the Mayan ruins dating back to 1200 years ago before reaching the beach where we stop to relax and have fun for a few hours.
  • There is no better place than an unspoilt Caribbean beach to relax in the sun or dive into the water with a mask and snorkel to discover the incredible seabed. We are served a lovely buffet lunch with vegetables, meat, fish, pasta and fresh fruit.
  • We then get back to our Jeep to reach El Faro Celarain. 133 steps separate us from the top, where we can enjoy breathtaking views of the island.
  • We move on to the San Gervasio Mayan archaeological site, the most important site on Cozumel, once the political centre of the Mayan community on the island. It was once a sacred city dedicated to Ixchel, goddess of the moon, fertility and childbirth. San Gervasio is a complex with temples, ceremonial buildings and palaces divided into four areas which are linked by a network of roads, still magnificently preserved, where it is possible to observe some fragments of frescoes in the circular building known as the Big House. Although its size is definitely less impressive than that of other Mayan sites on the Mexican territory, this place is just as interesting.
  • We get back to the port behind the wheel of our Jeep.
