    OVERVIEW

    Sample tacos at three venues – each specializing in a different style of taco – and learn a bit about the various ingredients and history of this iconic Mexican dish. Tacos have come a long way since Mexican silver miners supposedly invented them in the 18th century. Before your first sampling at the downtown Municipal Market, the guide will show you around the food stands and explain the types of taco seasonings. You will then be served two cochinita pibil tacos, a traditional Yucatan dish made with marinated and seasoned suckling pig meat that has been wrapped in banana leaves and roasted in an underground oven. The second and third venues will be restaurants, one known for seafood tacos, the other acclaimed for another type of taco. A refreshing beer will be served to complement your dining experience, along with samples of tequila, water or soda. Also, one drink will be included at each venue.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Enjoy taco tastings at three different venues, each offering its own special variety.
    • See the typical ingredients used in traditional tacos while browsing the Municipal Market.
    • Learn about the history of tacos and the types most popular on the Yucatan Peninsula.
    • Spend free time in downtown Cozumel following the taco sampling.


    HELPFUL HINTS

    Spend a fun-filled day at Xel-Ha, an aquatic theme park where you can enjoy activities such as river tubing, bicycling, snorkeling and soaring like a bird on the zip-line.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a scenic journey to Xel-Ha, a beautiful aquatic park in a large protected cove on the mainland. Centuries ago, the Maya created a trading center, pilgrimage site and shelter for sailors here. In the Mayan language, Xel-Ha means “where the water is born,” and it is still a fitting description.


    In this natural wonderland, you will be free to participate in whatever activities interest you the most. You might ease into an inner tube and float down the Xel-Ha River. Along the way, you can pause on the riverside platforms and, if you are feeling adventurous, you can climb the Cliff of Courage and then jump off into the river.


    Riding the zip-lines and then splashing down into the water is another exhilarating, adrenaline-pumping activity. You can also fly through the air on a rope swing named for the Mayan Guardian of the Air, Chuc Kay.


    There are also plenty of activities that are less physically demanding. You might meander down a jungle trail, enjoy the serenity of Chacah’s Garden, and snorkel through the cove, which is teeming with marine life such as angelfish, snapper, turtles and even manatees. The day is yours to enjoy as you so fit, whether it’s being physically active or simply relaxing.

    Challenge your senses and sense of reality in Xenses Park, a fantastic setting where up is down, right is left and nothing is as it appears.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a picturesque ride to the mainland and on to Xenses Park. You will then spend the next four hours or so exploring this highly unusual sensory park with all sorts of entertaining activities that are designed to challenge your perceptions and enhance your senses.


    Starting at the welcome area, known as the Pinwheel, two different circuits are available. The Consensible Circuit will test your senses in areas such as The Way of the Dwarfs and Giants. Here, you feel small one second and then enormous a moment later. Enter the complete darkness of the Xensatorium and all of your senses but sight will sharpen. Then, there is the Xitric Garden, where you can drink lemonade straight from a faucet in a lemon tree.


    The Inconsensible Circuit will play tricks on your sense of balance and reality. You might float down a super-salty river, soar through the air on a zip-line, and meander through a make-believe town where the laws of physics and logic don’t apply. Water will seem to defy gravity, and you may think you are ascending steps but are actually walking down them.


    The experience will be extraordinarily fun, wildly amusing and mentally challenging. Afterwards, you will enjoy free time in Playa del Carmen to ease back into reality.

Later was sank to enhance the life of this Protected Natural Area and preserve it for future generations. Nowadays, it is home of mainly fish, sponges, and soft corals. An experienced crew will relate to you an interesting narration of the area and its diversity of underwater life, providing relevant information during your tour. The Submarine Atlantis XII is the only one of its kind in Mexico; it is powered by batteries, which helps minimize its ecological footprint, and its passenger cabin is air-conditioned and maintains the same pressure as atmospheric at the surface. less

The Maya built the walled city-state of Tulum in the 11th century to control maritime commerce, and its excavated temples and buildings are spectacular, especially the tower El Castillo.

    Explore the ruins of Tulum, the only Mayan city-state on the sea, and then enjoy a delicious lunch at an aquatic park built on a natural inlet where the Mayas once gathered.


    After a 45-minute ferry ride to the mainland, settle in for a relaxing drive to the Mayan ruins at Tulum, which sit atop a small cliff overlooking the sea. Although not the largest or most elaborate archaeological site on the Yucatan peninsula, Tulum may be the most beautiful.


    The Maya built the walled city of Tulum in the 11th century to control maritime commerce, and the city-state’s excavated temples and buildings are spectacular. The most prominent is El Castillo, a tower at the edge of a cliff that probably served as a landmark for sailors.


    As you meander about, you will see the Temple of Frescoes, which was an observatory used to track the sun’s movements. The frescoes inside the temple represent various gods and supernatural serpents. The building was once painted red and you can still see remnants of that hue. The carving over the doorway of the adjacent Temple of the Descending God is worth a look, as well.


    Continuing on, you will soon arrive at Xel-Ha, which means “where the water is born” in the Mayan language. Although the inlet of Xel-ha has been developed into an aquatic theme park, it has retained the natural beauty that attracted the Mayans centuries ago. You will have 2 hours to enjoy lunch and explore as much as you can of the park. Ask your guide for quick recommendations to make the most out of this leisure time.

    Meander through the extraordinarily well-preserved ruins at Chichen Itza, a sacred site that was one of the great Mayan centers on the Yucatan peninsula for centuries.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for an immensely scenic drive on to Chichen Itza. Now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Chichen Itza had enormous importance as a religious, ceremonial and astronomical center, and excavations have unearthed a number of significant structures.


    You´ll be provided with a tablet so you can live the Mayan Ruins through the uses of virtual and augmented technology allowing you to better understand the history of Mayan Civilization. Be transported to the past and witness how the Mayan temples looked like centuries ago full of colors and vividness.


    The most iconic is the pyramid-like Temple of Kulkulcan, which has 365 steps, one for each day of the year. Its architecture is Mayan but heavily influenced by the Toltec warriors who migrated to the Yucatan in the 10th century. The pyramid is oriented to mark the solstices and equinoxes, as the Mayans were skilled astronomers.


    While meandering about the excavated grounds of Chichen Itza, you will also see the largest ancient ball court in the Americas. The acoustics are amazing even by today’s standards, as a whisper at one end can be heard at the other end, more than 500 feet away.


    The Temple of the Warriors is another highlight. Flanked by hundreds of columns with carved figures of Toltec warriors, this massive building was used for ceremonial gatherings.
