  1. John

    What a unbelievable experience that only happened because of the hard work of Leo and our pilot Omar! With weather being a factor that day, there was only a short window got us to get up and out of Cozumel. The flight yo Chichen Itza was truly amazing and included a fly by of the ruins before landing. Leo arranged for George “Turtle” to give us a private tour that lasted over three hours. With weather closing in again Omar made the call to leave asap. In route the airport in Cozumel closed and we ended up landing in Playa del Carman and had to take the fairy back. Talk about getting to do it all!! Leo took care of every detail, keeping us safe the entire way. This trip is off the hook and Leo is definitely the man!!!

    We went to the ruins last week on an airplane of fly cozumel and it was a great adventure. We got more than we expected. we took the van to the airport at 9 am and our airplane was ready to fly, 9:30 take off to the ruins to land at 10:20am. Great aircraft and flight, excellent pilot, nice weather round trip, delicious food, very explicit guide, the ruins worth to visit My friends and I highly recommend to our friends and people this private tour by airplane with “Fly Cozumel” which provide a very excellent service, thank you so much we had a memorable experience… We will be coming back next vacations and do more destinations in the area. Look for them on internet.

    What a fantastic day, we could never have expected such a good time. The staff is simple top of the line, professional, courteous, and friendly. Some of the smoothest landings I have been a part of, the ruins were amazing and we had a blast at the cenote swim was out of this world! Highly recommend this tour!

    I booked a private airplane tour to Chichen Itza through Fly Cozumel and I would recommend them 100%. They allowed me to customize the trip to my likings. I booked through Captain Leo and he was great with communication. We got to Chichen Itza by 9:00 am and not much crowds at the time. We spent 2 hours there with a private tour guide and left as the crowds were coming in. It was an awesome experience but it was hot hot hot even in the am. We went to a nearby Cenote and spent about an hour there and then were off to Cozumel again. It costs much more as a big tour bus tour but in my opinion is SOOOO worth it… No sweaty tour bus, crowds, stopping at other hotels, or waiting for others to catch up… Well worth it…. It was great and would do it again in a heartbeat!

    It’s a little more pricey than doing the Chichen Itza trip via tour bus. But if you can afford this it is SO, SO, SO worth the money! We were taken to a small airport (in a well air conditioned bus), caught our private plane, & taken directly to the ruins. Our tour guide knew everything about the Mayan people & the site. We waited in NO lines anywhere! We were taken directly past the LONG lines at the ruins & at the restaurant after the tour. We were back at our hotel & relaxing hours before we would have been had we taken the tour bus. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!
