    AMAZING Experience with flycozumel! We loved our flight from Cozumel to Cancun with Flycozumel! They were very professional and prompt and courteous. We were worried that we wouldn’t be able to leave due to weather but Leo and Anne were very communicative and helped assuage my concerns. Also, in the plane, Oscar the pilot let me fly the plane solo for a solid 15 min! It was awesome and it was way cooler than the flight simulator training I got in science camp 25 years ago! Totally worth it. Can’t wait to use them next time we are in Cozumel!

    The minute I first read about Fly Cozumel I knew we had to book this tour. My husband is a small plane pilot here in the states and loves any chance he can get into a plane. I messaged Leo right away and asked about what was necessary for already licensed pilots and the Discover Flight they offer. Leo responded right away and was just excited as I was to get my husband in the air over Cozumel. Booking our reservation was easy and secure with payment through Paypal for the Deposit. Leo was great with communication as the date of our trip and reservation came closer. We were picked up at our condo by Anibal who had a taxi ready and waiting to take us to the airport. Once at the airport, he stayed with us until Leo and Omar arrived in the plance from the mainland. Omar got all our paperwork taken care of with the airport officials and then we were off! My husband was able to pilot the plane from take off to landing with Omar taking care of communicating with the Tower. The views were AMAZING and we saw things you wouldn’t know existed on the island if you didn’t see them from the air. I was in the back of the plane taking pictures, as was Leo, and we both got some great shots! We’ve been back home almost 2 weeks and our heads are still in the clouds from the awesome experience! It was worth every penny….and then some! Thank Leo and crew for a flight we’ll remember forever!
