      Excellent time, particularly the snorkeling.
      We did the stingray feeding and snorkeling. Jorge, our guide, was excellent. Our time was wonderful. Photos were more reasonably priced than other attractions and there aren’t a ton of upsells which I appreciate. Really, the best part was the snorkeling. There are a great variety of other fish and we really enjoyed it. In fact I wish they had the option to return and just do the snorkeling. We would gladly pay for that as the stingray education is pretty much a “one and done”.

      Chocolate, history & wine
      Wendy was great ! We loved hearing about the history of chocolate. The process of making the disks was fun & easy. We can't wait to use our chocolate disks.

      Chocolate Lover’s Paradise!
      We had an amazing experience with our chocolate guide Wendy. It was fascinating to learn the history of how the chocolate we all know and love came to be, especially how it relates to ancient Mayan culture. It was truly an organic and captivating presentation. Afterwards, we all got to make our very own fresh chocolate bars which was a lot of fun and surprisingly easy! We finished off our tour tasting a variety of different locally made chocolates and sipping some fine Mexican wines. If you call yourself a chocolate lover and you find yourself in Cozumel, you can’t pass this up!

      Great experience and welcome!
      The guide is Pedro and Javier. They make us laugh and have fun with rays. They make sure we feel comfortable! As we are deaf, they are great to show and make us sure we understand and not left us out. And I want to give thanks to Pathi. She knew some sign and great explain to purchase the pictures and stuff! We feel pleased to have her and our guides! This is wonderful experience and feel welcome! The pictures with rays are worth it!

      Absolutely incredible!
      This experience was everything I could have hoped for and more! I’ve been obsessed with rays since I was a kid, and this was a perfect way to appreciate and interact with them. Our guides, Manuel and Ricardo, were kind and helpful. They made sure we were comfortable and well-informed about every aspect of the experience. I was able to touch, feed, and swim with probably a dozen stingrays. They were peaceful, friendly, and beautiful. Small kids loved it, parents and grandparents loved it- you should check it out for yourselves. Also- the snorkel gear they provided was clean and fit well. Clean bathrooms/changing area. Their photographer, Maggie, was awesome! I ended up purchasing the full package of pics she took, and she even included great underwater shots of the rays, sharks, and birds at the beach, I cannot recommend this place highly enough, and I can’t wait to go back!

      Fun time, stingrays are cute and chocolate experience was fun but nickel and dimed for a lot
      Had a fun time! I love stingrays and it was great but it was somewhat short time. It was only 30 min with the rays and we got to pet and hold them a bit. Then it was a guided 30 minute snorkeling tour around a fenced off area. The guides were nice, but it was a short time. I love stingrays so to me it was worth it. Expect to be nickel and dimed for it all. The food was really good afterwards (not included). We also did the chocolate tasting and workshop which was super great time. It was cool to learn about chocolate and actually make your own! Glad I did it, prob wouldn’t do it again though.

      Avoid at all costs
      Beware! This place is the epitome of a dodgy tourist trap, and they will nickel and dime you for everything. We booked a 3.5hr experience from our cruise ship. Although the guides were great, we got 30 min tops in the stingray area, most of which was an assembly line of taking kitschy pictures with their photographer. (You aren’t allowed to bring your own cameras into this areas and get your own pictures with the stingrays…they want to charge you for these later) Then the “snorkeling portion” is a maximum of 30 min in a caged area in guided loop (you aren’t allowed to use this time to snorkel on you own and explore if you have experience : /) After this time, you are rushed out of the water because they have tours scheduled behind you. That’s it…there are no other activities and you aren’t allowed back in the water on your own. They had a macaw set up outside and my kids asked to hold it and take a picture with it. The gentlemen said if we bought a picture package they could. We proceeded to buy their entire picture package and then they said, “Nope…you are going to need to buy a separate Macaw picture opportunity now.” The manager is there is the worst…so condescending and corrupt. These people are ALL about the money and all they care about is how they can get more from you. They definitely don’t care how hard you worked to earn it or about you having a good time/making memories. Avoid at all costs and hold your wallets tight.

      Must do in Cozumel
      I really enjoyed the whole experience! It was fun to learn about both male and female stingrays. Pedro was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable and helped everyone hold the stingrays for pictures (I wish I purchased a picture holding one.) I loved how he made sure that everyone was having a good time and made sure everyone was okay. Will definitely do it again next time. Highly recommended

      I'm not sure why this place got bad reviews. We did this excursion as a part of our Disney Cruise. We had an amazing time. From the moment we were picked up on the boat I knew it was going to be fun. The crew members on the boat were playing great music and entertaining the kids. They took so many pictures for everyone also. Once we got to Sting ray beach the instructors were funny and very personable. We learned alot about the stingrays and even got to kiss them! During the snorkeling part we got to swim with the sharks and the stingrays. Afterward, we had a nice lunch at the little beach area and the kids got to race crabs. Overall, it was a really fun expierence and I would definitely do it again!

      Not all that!
      Very small fenced in area to snorkel with a handful of sting rays and two sleepy nurse sharks. Not a bit of any live plant life on the bottom. Then you go to shallow water for a photo that they charge $70 for... whole thing just seemed like a scam. $100 pp to snorkel and another $70 bucks for photo. This was not for us! This was a Norweigian Cruise excursion.

      Great family adventure for all ages!
      We had a fantastic time visiting Stingray Beach in Cozumel. We were 4 families visiting together ages 8-80+. It was easy to travel there by the Cozumel ferry from the resort we stayed at in Playa Del Carmen (just a short taxi ride to the Ferry terminal) Those who wished were taken on a short boat ride to the snorkel area. The senior family members appreciated the option to stay back and use the many facilities on shore, (maybe get a massage!) Safety was always a top priority on the water. The staff were very attentive and gave special attention to those who had not snorkeled before, making sure they were comfortable. On return, the highlight of the trip, getting to feed and swim with the stingrays. The staff ensured safety and everyone's comfort level was respected. Everything was captured by a professional photographer allowing you to leave the camera behind. Again, those who wished to stay dry could watch the fun from the private pier, allowing all ages and abilities the opportunity to take part. Lunch was served (authentic tacos!) and the kids all agreed it was "the best meal in Mexico" Thank you Stingray Beach for a wonderful family memory.

      Good excursion on Cozumel
      We booked snorkeling, stingray/nurse shark encounter, and lunch drinks on the beach. Our favorite was snorkeling which was enjoyed by my 11 year old son and my 70+ year old father in law and everyone in between. The beach lunch and drinks (alcohol included) was also good. The ray and shark encounters were ok. The staff was entertaining, professional, and fun.

    I don’t usually write many reviews but Danny’s tasting was the BEST — and I live near Napa so we go wine tasting at some of the best wineries in the world regularly. Danny is a true jack-of-all-trades — mezcal/tequila historian, professionally trained chef, and small businessman. The pairings were fantastic and a real experience to try how they alter the way the tequila / mezcal tastes so you can appreciate different notes. I really enjoyed hearing more about the origins of the alcohol and how to find good quality (which is often difficult in tourist areas). Even took three bottles home so I could try to replicate the experience with friends at home! Can’t recommend this highly enough. We were lucky enough to get a private tasting and Danny was great, answering all our questions about Mexican history, culture and mezcal!
    Definitely book this if you have a chance!

    Daniel was such a knowledgeable and personable connoisseur of tequila and Mezcal. And he shared recipes as well that I can’t wait to try. I could have spent days there learning from him. I will absolutely be back! I highly recommend this experience. You won’t be sorry.
