  1. Franco

    Safe, Amazing and Fun!

    This well set up company provides a great service. To begin with, safety. They operate new airplanes in a very professional way. You can really judge by looking at the way they operate, safety briefiengs, etc…

    Second, the level of service is outstanding. Personal, friendly and again, professional.

    When you combine those two with the outstanding views of the Caribbean plus ancient Mayan Ruins, it all seems like a dream. I completely recommend Fly Cozumel for families with young children or teenagers, adults and couples. The trip to the ruins is completely worth every dime!

    Hello! We had the time of our lives! Thanks so much for making it perfect!

    We took Fly Cozumel to Chichen Itza. Wow!! This was the most amazing experience! There were eight of us in our group — two families with teenagers. Most in our group had never flown in a smaller airplane, so the flight itself was a nice experience for them. The aircraft was very modern with state of the art avionics. Also, everyone with Fly Cozumel was friendly and helpful. I would gladly take another of their tours.

    Amazing experience for the family! I took my family of four with kids age 11 and 13 + my two parents age 72. We all had an amazing time. The kids each took a turn as “co-pilot” which was definitely the highlight of their entire March Break trip.

    NCL excursion- Chichen Itza. We had a fantastic experience with Fly Cozumel on our trip to tour the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza. We were escorted off the ship to a waiting van that took us to the airport where we met Sandra with Fly Cozumel. She was our escort for the day. She kept us informed of the length of each leg of our trip and location of all the restrooms. As a reminder, the nice, new plane (not a jet) seats 12-15 people. The ceiling is low and the aisles are narrow, but once in your seat, it was comfortable. At the unfortunate experience of some in our group, we learned that there are no seatbelt extensions for those who need them. I would recommend double checking the maximum seatbelt length before booking if this could be a concern for you. Once at Chichen Itza we met our tour guide and were escorted inside past the line for tickets. Tortuga (our guide’s nickname) was excellent. He was very informative and even helped take photos. Being in a smaller group was SO helpful to move throughout the site and hear all the interesting information Tortuga had to share. All legs of transportation (transfers) were included in our excursion price and taken care of by NCL. Flying instead of taking a long road trip was definitely the way to go!
