  • Pueblo del Maiz: interactive pre-Hispanic park
  • Western part of the island with unspoilt nature
  • Relaxation on the beach

What we will do
  • We leave the port by coach and shortly reach our first destination: the wonderful archaeological site of San Gervasio, the most important in Cozumel, once the political hub of Mayan civilisation on the island.
  • 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 linked by a network of roads which are still magnificently preserved and where it is possible to observe some fragments of frescoes in the circular building known as the "Big House".
  • After visiting San Gervasio, we head to Pueblo del Maiz, a sort of pre-Hispanic park that, through interactive technology, retraces the history of the Mayans and enables us to discover their habits and traditions.
  • We then move on to the western part of Cozumel, where we can admire a magnificent landscape made up of wild unspoilt nature.
  • Before heading back to the ship, we stop in a comfortable Beach Club to relax on the beach and enjoy a delicious *Mexican buffet lunch accompanied by soft drinks.

What you need to know
  • We recommend that you book early because only a limited number of places are available.
