Cozumel has a singular beauty because of its white beaches, clear water, kind people, and diverse vegetation. Our goal is to show you all of that. We will head out of the bustle of San Miguel de Cozumel and turn toward the south. The road will turn dramatically to the left, passing by a series of small beach bars and restaurants, yet always accompanied by the wild sandy beaches just to your side, and we will arrive at El Mirador, a great place to stop and take some pictures. There are several natural arches here, punctuated by splashing ocean waves and seaspray, a truly rugged and tense place. If time allows, you can climb up the "tower" first for a better view and then explore the natural arches on foot.
A little further down the road is Playa Bonita, a long deserted stretch of beach. There are restroom facilities here, as well as big waves crashing along the coastline, but best of all is the chance to learn how tequila is made. Afterwards, you will taste a sample of tequila.
Our tour then continues on to San Gervasio (admission not included), in the northern part of the island. You will be guided through these Maya ruins which date through the four periods, the first dating from the Early Classic Period (A.D. 300-600) and the last from the Late Postclassical Period (A.D. 1250-1500). The majority of the structures of San Gervasio were used as altars and shrines and for governmental gatherings. While the buildings are not of the scale of other Mayan sites on the Yucatan peninsula, you'll sense a certain mystique as you walk on the altars where ceremonies were once held in honor of Ixchel, the fertility goddess. You will find these ruins more of a spiritual experience than an impressive structure as is Tulum.
We will give you some time to do some shopping downtown before returning you to your starting point. There are some fun shops along the waterfront that have beautiful crafts.
• Please wear tennis or soft walking shoes, a hat, and light clothes.
• Entrance fees are not included in the price of this tour. San Gervasio runs about $8 per person.
