The secret behind the success and longevity of the incredibly gifted, intelligent and sophisticated Mayan Civilization? Chocolate, of course!

Discover the magic of the cacao bean with a visit to the Mayan Cacao Company -- the place for a unique sensory and interactive adventure.

Learn about the history of chocolate through the ages from the manufacturing process and end with a tasting session where, just in case your chocolate eating skills are a little rusty, you will participate under the tutelage of a specialist.

Visit a Mayan House and witness how these creative people used to live. See the ancient dwelling and the botanic garden, as well as customs and traditions. There is also a chance to taste traditional Mayan food.

A panoramic drive through Cozumel introduces you to the virgin side of the island.

Stop at El Mirador -- a rocky formation carved out by the ocean -- and admire the different hues of the sea, which also are the perfect background for memorable photos. Hop back on the bus and enjoy a relaxing drive back to the ship.
