“Cozumel Chef is Terrific; We loved Chef Emily, we started with the Cozumel Food tour, it’s a great idea to take this upon your arrival to get a feel for the local cuisine, because you will not find it on your own. Even my 7 year old son was more than enthusiastic to try new foods…” – Loma Rica, CA
