We had a large group, 11 total, and they accommodated us easily. We not only had a great lesson on Kaokao and the history, but we made our own, from the bean to the final result. So good, and the tasting was great as well....More

On our trip, we didn't come across any wine tasting opportunities. Unfortunately, wine just doesn't seem to be the thing to do in Cozumel. Tequila reigns supreme.
