- Full Tour Description
Mexico’s food and drinks are unmatched. There is so much flavor and care infused in traditional Mexican dishes that we created the Mexican Flavors Tour to share some of the most popular recipes from regions all over the country. Voted one of the best activities in Cozumel, this experience will fill your stomach and leave you smiling and satisfied. Upon arrival to Discover Mexico Park, you’ll relax in air-conditioned comfort as you view our exclusive four-screen video collage. The culmination of two years travel and filming, this award- winning presentation brings one of the world’s oldest and richest cultures vividly to life. Vibrant images from all over the México will take you from the Riviera Maya through Oaxaca to Chihuahua.
Next you’ll peruse our Museum of Popular Arts, which showcases works of contemporary folk art created by renowned artisans from all over Mexico. Mexico’s regional art is as varied as its culture. You’ll have an opportunity to view works from artists all over the country including the famous “barro negro” pottery and the colorful iconic “alebrijes” from Oaxaca. Your tour guide, who will remain with you throughout your visit to the Park, is well-versed in all aspects of Mexican culture and history and will be happy to answer any questions.
Now it’s time to enter the cacao workshop. You can’t help but take a long deep breath in when you open the door- the smell is intoxicating! Your guides will teach you the traditional tools used to roast and mill cacao seeds into real chocolate. You will then have the opportunity to mill your own chocolate bars that were used to make a delicious traditional Mexican hot cocoa drink called “chocolhaa”, all by using traditional methods – including hand-cranked mills, mortars, and pestles. NOTE: Please alert your guide if you are allergic to nuts.
By now, you’ll be pretty thirsty! It’s the perfect time to begin your Jose Cuervo tequila tour! Working with the dedicated staff at the José Cuervo distillery, Discover Mexico Park has created a comprehensive tour on the origins, history, and types of tequilas produced in Jalisco Mexico, where this potent beverage has been made for centuries. In this fun and informative tour, your “tequilero” will guide you through a flight of three distinctly different José Cuervo tequilas: a Blanco, a Reposado, and an Añejo (aged).
Using natural ingredients like limes, cinnamon and coffee, you’ll learn to detect the subtle flavors and components that make up Mexico’s most famous beverage. Much like a fine single-malt scotch, there are Tequilas of surpassing quality that are to be similarly sipped and savored.
After the tour, you are invited to see the Paplanta Flyers show- a unique aerial performance honoring Mexico’s ancient “voladores”.
