“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

“The Unforgettable Experience –  My husband & I went on the Cozumel Chef food tour during our honeymooning in Riviera Maya and it was the highlight of our stay….This is an absolute must do when you visit Cozumel and I would highly recommend this tour for anyone!” – New York, NY

“If You Don’t Want the Typical Cruise Excursion – Had a great time…tasting different foods, going to the market and visiting a bakery. I saw one of the couples who did the tour with me back on the ship and they commented on what a fun time we had. It was interesting not only to try the different foods, beverages, etc., but to also learn things about the people of Cozumel, the land, etc.” – St. Pete, FL
