Don't have the time to see all of Mexico's sites? Just go to Discover Mexico Park. Sitting along the coast just south of San Miguel, this park houses miniature models of some of the country's most popular attractions, including the Mayan ruins of Tulum and the Metropolitan Cathedral of Mexico City. The park also provides insight into Mexican culture, including a chocolate factory and the popular tequila tasting exhibit. 

Recent visitors said it's a great place if you're short on time, but still want to see and learn a lot about Mexico. Other travelers attributed their great experience to the park's friendly and knowledgeable tour guides, while others said the tequila tasting is not to be missed. 

Discover Mexico Park, which is a 5-minute taxi ride from downtown Cozumel and a 10-minute walk from the main cruise ship docks, is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. General admission costs $26 for adults and $19 for kids. Add-ons include a tequila tasting  and a chocolate workshop. For $65 per adult, you can also purchase a combo ticket to visit Chankanaab National Park, which offers zip line tours, swimming with dolphins and sea lion shows, among other experiences. To learn more, visit Discover Mexico Park's website.
