I know this thread is ancient but I found it when I Googled Cozumel Pearl Farm
and registered here to reply.
Our family was there on July 4, 2019 and we were blown away. Granted, I knew very little about pearls before we went so I was a blank canvas for information. However, the tour should appeal to a wide variety of people. Here are a few bullet points:
- Isabel, our host, studied marine biology around the world. If you want to dialogue about the science of pearl cultivation, she'll go into as much detail/minutia as you like.
- There's a small lab onsite which we toured. They are not shy about sharing information and/or things they've learned over the years.
- Our home schooled daughters 10 & 16, came with us and were fascinated by her presentation, as were my wife and I.
- If you just want to relax and snorkel, it's one of the most beautiful secluded beaches we've ever been to. Had the entire beach to ourselves. There is no road access so anyone coming in has to arrive by boat.
- Isabel arranged transportation by water taxi. She runs a tight schedule. Very easy to communicate with them for pickup and drop-off.
- They had small box of pearl jewelry items for sale. We bought the one set of earrings they had. However, there is no gift-shop and there's absolutely no pressure to buy anything.
It's a family operation and more geared toward the science of pearl cultivation than the marketing of pearls.
I wrote a blog post about our trip. If no OK to post, feel free to remove:
