The tour was interesting and the grounds were gorgeous. If you like birding, take your binoculars. We spotted a Yucatan Woodpecker and a Blue Gray Gnatcatcher. There were also a good variety of butterflies.

We loved our bee sanctuary tour! Russell our guide was wonderful. Super informative; we learned a lot about the local bees in Cozumel! Tickets are only $8 USD and they have a small gift shop with a lot of wonderful items to buy. I bought the Melipona honey *medicinal and regular honey with honeycomb *it was ridiculously good!!!! Do not miss this wonderful tour. Also for Covid19, they take all the necessary precautions to ensure you and your travel companions are safe. We went early when they first opened and had a private tour all to ourselves! It was great! This is definitely a business that deserves support during these difficult times!

The most authentic part of Cozumel and perhaps the entire peninsula. I recommend this tour ($8!) before any other. Learn about Mayan history, cenote and of course bees. Three species of stingless bees on site that can be found no where else. A must for honey connoisseur. Also on site a relic reproduction artist hand carving cool souvenirs for a very reasonable price. You need a taxi, car or scooter to get here.

The Bee Sanctuary is great. If you rent a car, it is a good place to stop and spend an hour. Beautiful grounds and the tour is very interesting. Saddly, because there are no cruise ships right now, the place is very quiet and you will likely have the place to your self. It is very different from anything we have done before in the best possible way. If you are interested in Mayan history, culture or tradition it is especially interesting. Carlos Francisco is a sculptor who makes Mayan artifacts far more authentic looking than the ones you see at the actual archeological sites. It’s spooky how weathered and old they look. He is also a fountain of knowledge about all things Maya. Amazing place that we cannot recommend highly enough.

Our diving for the day was canceled due to rough seas, so my group of 8 booked a tour of the Bee Sanctuary through our hotel Casa del Mar (Jose on the front desk very helpful as always). Russell our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative about Mayan culture and the bees themselves. We strolled down lush green trails to see a cenote and then the bee 'hives'. The tiny bees were swarming all around us but it was fine since they don't sting. Later we got a taste of the honey. Highly recommended!!
