I'm the founder of Cozumel Chef. An engineer turned professional chef, I moved to Mexico to start a private chef business eight years ago. Over time, people began contacting me and asking me to take them to my favorite local Mexican restaurants. This eventually led me to create Cozumel Chef Food Tour and I started guiding daily tours. My business has grown, so I hired a helpful foodie, Gerry, my favorite local Mexican food guide and taco aficionado. He has been guiding for about five years. We look forward to hosting you and taking you to authentic, off-the-beaten-path restaurants and stalls.

Where you'll be

You will visit five different tasting locations in the heart of downtown Cozumel, as well as the local market. You'll taste authentic quesadillas with homemade tortillas, eat the local taco—cochinita pibil—a Yucatecan specialty, try the soup that every Mexican grandmother makes—Sopa de Lime, and devour a whole fried Caribbean fish with fresh ceviche—a local favorite. And after that, you'll end on a sweet note at the oldest bakery on the island.

We had a fantastic time on this tour. We met some very nice people in our group and Gerry was very knowledgeable and also funny. The food was very good, especially my brownie from the bakery at the end of the tour. I definitely recommend this tour.

Gerardo did a marvelous job, taking us to places we might never have found on our own. We particularly enjoyed his introducing us to the local drinks, horchata, jamaica, and the tamarind drink. We knew about huitlacoche but doubted we would ever see it, yet we did. Gerardo was entertaining, well-informed, and a gracious host for this experience.

Jerry and Fabio were a delight to have as guide and driver. Not only do you sample authentic local food, you go to local markets to get in site on how locals buy their provisions. I recommend this tour to enhance your Cozumel experience

We spent a lovely day with Gerry. We were 12 guests in total. Gerry took us to places that we otherwise would never have found. He had a lot of knowledge about mexican food culture. He also took us to a local farmers market! Food and drinks were plenty! The meeting point was easy to find and about a 5 min taxi drive from the international cruise port. We enjoyed our afternoon as it felt truly an authentic mexican experience.

Our guide Gerry was amazing!! He took us off the beaten path in Cozumel to taste some wonderful local food. All of the food was delicious and we left totally stuffed! Each place was unique and definitely not one I could have found easily on my own. Highly recommend

This event was awesome! Jerry was fantastic. I feel like I got two experiences in one. I got the opportunity not only taste authentic food but see a side of Mexico I wouldn’t have other wise seen. I can’t tell you what my favorite dish was...there were too many to choose from. The hostesses of each restaurant were very nice, hospitable and welcoming! I would definitely do this tour again!
