This tour offers history, nature discovery, and beachside relaxation -- three must-do activities in Cozumel.

Step aboard air-conditioned coach transportation and head into Cozumel's jungle interior where you'll explore the site of an ancient Mayan settlement.

Immerse yourself in the mystical feeling that pervades the San Gervasio archaeological site as you walk limestone roads through the vestiges of Mayan construction. Keep your eyes open for butterflies, birds, iguanas, and other local residents. This is the only protected Mayan site on Cozumel and the natural setting offers a real sense of the Mayan life 1,200 years ago, when Cozumel was a trade stop and center of worship for the goddess of fertility.

Head to a beautiful beach club next, for some free time to relax on the white-sand beach, swim in the sea, and enjoy the tropical surroundings.

Snacks, margaritas and other beverages are available for purchase (at your own expense).

After approximately 1½ hours at the beach club, you'll head back to the ship.

Notes:

Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, reef-safe/biodegradable sunscreen and a hat. In case of inclement weather, the beach stop will be replaced with a visit to the local museum (admission included) and shopping. The Mexican government collects US$4 from guests who take a video camera into the ruins; professional or semi-professional video equipment will be charged at $300.
