Has anyone done this excursion before? Any feedback? Cozumel- A Traditional Christmas(El Cedral)


Recommended Posts

We were looking at the below excursion as we will be traveling right after Thanksgiving & looking for something more "off the beaten path" so not really any scuba diving or boat rides but rather something to do with local culture.  Here is the description from Royal Caribbean on this excursion we can book through the cruise line: Cozumel- A Traditional Christmas(El Cedral) 


Embrace the festive spirit of Christmas in Mexico with a four-hour celebration that includes a traditional posada procession around town, plus a feast of local Yucatecan snacks typically eaten during the holiday season. The experience begins in El Cedral, home to the oldest settlement on Cozumel Island, dating to 800 A.D. where you will visit the island's first church and a small Mayan ruin nearby before setting out on foot as part of a Christmas-inspired parade that reenacts the day Jesus was born. The tradition dates back some 400 years, and today you'll take part as you sing along to holiday carols and take a swing at a candy-filled pinata. Then indulge in a Christmas feast of Yucatecan favorites — sweet bread, tamales, fried codzito rolls, and pumpkin seed salsa will tantalize your taste buds. You'll always remember the holiday festivities with a souvenir pinata to take home.
