Mexico Lindo Shore Excursion

header mexico-lindo

There are no other tourist groups going to most of the places you will visit on this tour, therefore you will see the real authentic Mexico. You con observe real Mexican life in town, visit the fruit and vegetable market and see a real jungle camp. 

What will you see?

jungle camp 02

CHICLERO CAMP
Visit a jungle camp outside the Riviera Maya and listen to my explanations how the workers are living and working in the jungle. I will also explain a lot about the history of the jungle camps in Mexico, cenotes, animals, plants and the medical use of plants. The camp exists since almost 75 years and at the moment are 10 people living and working there over the week.

 

leona vicario 05LEONA VICARIO
Next, you visit Leona Vicario, a Mexican town in the middle of the jungle, just 25 miles from Cancun and the Riviera Maya. You wouldn’t imagine that 12000 people are living in this town because it’s spreading all over the jungle. It is a Mexican town, but 80% of the people living there, are Mayan or Mayan descendants. People are coming out of the jungle so the children can go to school and learn Spanish because the Mayan language is so different from every other language, they couldn’t communicate in their one country if they don’t learn Spanish. You will see a real authentic Mexican town since no other tourist group is going there and nothing is done ore build for tourists. See how people are going about their life, working with wood or selling their self grown vegetable and fruits on the market.

leona vicario tricitaxis 02After a small walk over the fruit and vegetable market you will go on a 1 hour roundtrip in tricitaxis (tricycle taxis), at first you’ll have a stop at a property where I will explain how people are building their houses, since the don’t have the money to build a house from blocks all at once. Your next stop will be at a cemetery, where your guide will explain hoe they deal with death, contrary to us. Then you visit a tornero de Madera (wood craftsman) who build a machine from car spare parts and produces really beautiful mortars, vases, cups and other stuff from wood. If you want, you can buy some of the products for 4,- US – 8,- US instead of 18,- US – 40,- US in the shops in Cancun. Your last stop in Leona Vicario will be at a Tortilleria where I will explain and show you how they make the Tortillas, including a tasting.

 

Dsc02283Cenote Verde Lucero (only if there is enough time )

Then you are off into the jungle again, to the Cenote Verde Lucero, you can have a swim there, you can slide with a zip line into the water, jump from the 25 feet high cliff or just climb in over the stairs.

About me

volkerWhile you’re in your port of call in Cozumel, spend your precious time enjoying  the Riviera Maya on a private shore excursion with Volker, a nature guide with more than 20 years of experience. I am offering private shore excursions for couples, families and groups of friends. I'll show you the authentic Mexican country and its people on tours into nature and out of the way places and I'll tell you all about Mayan and Mexican history. 

Private Tours

label excellentAn excellent and unique experience

A private shore excursion gives you a more personalized experience than the large excursions offered by the cruise lines.

These tours are very exclusiv and cannot be purchased from the cruise lines.

Shore Excursions

label amazingSpecially tailored to the needs of cruise tourists

The tours start according to the arrival time of the cruise ship. I will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to Cozumel before the departure of your cruise ship. Please check the ship’s itinerary with that of the tours.

Pick Up in Cozumel

It is very easy to get to Playa del Carmen. Just take a taxi from the cruise port to the ferry and take the next ferry to Playa del Carmen. I will wait for you at the ferry dock when you arrive there. But if you like I can also come to Cozumel and pick you up right at the cruise port.
