Enjoy an exciting new way to discover the heart of Cozumel's jungle on your two-seater, non-power-steering Xrail Buggy. The All-Terrain Xrails Expedition offers the safest all-terrain ride and a Cozumel port tour you'll never forget.
After arriving at the meeting point, you will spend approximately 30 minutes having a safety briefing, getting your vehicle, and then heading out to the beginning of the lush jungle. Your first stop will be famous Jade Caverns. This botanical oasis is home to a wide variety of rare plant species such as orchids, vanilla and palm trees. You will also marvel at the rich stalactite formations decorating the entire cavern. You will have approximately 30 minutes to walk into the cave or dive into the cavern's fresh emerald waters (cenote) and relax in this magical, exotic place before your 45-minute ride back to the starting point of the excursion.
Please Note: All Xrail vehicles have manual (stick shift) transmissions. Xrail vehicles with automatic transmission are not available. You will get dusty and muddy; please dress appropriately.
Pros: Jumping into the cenotes; The guide was excellent; We also stopped by a cave and learned some Mayan history; The amount of time driving the x-rails was sufficient; the tequila tasting; They took pictures throughout, and we were able to purchase them afterwards. Cons: One person in our group had to ride a 4-wheeler because the X-rails wouldn't crank; Our manual x-rails stopped during the trip and we had to take one of the workers' x-rails, the automatic was difficult to steer. I would suggest the manual if you know how to drive one; Terrible water pressure for the showers; Suggestions: Bring bug spray, wear clothes you don't care to ruin, bring change of clothes and a bag, bring a towel but do not carry it on the ride. Bring a bandana or face cover-up so mud will not get into your nose or mouth and wear sunglasses to shield your eyes. They do sale bandanas there. Overall great experience and the staff was great!

I booked this for my husband and son, they were a bit hesitant at first, what with having to get a taxi in a foreign country to a place off site of the cruise ship, but sent them anyways, (I have insurance haahaa). I read another persons review and heeded their advise about bringing googles and bandanas and change of clothes. They told me I was being silly, but took the stuff anyways, Boy were they glad they did. The first thing my son did was hit a big mudhole (the only one as there had been no rain) but the rest of the ride was very dusty. Bandanas and sunglasses were used. At the swim place my son said it was scetch..said it looked like a deep hole with water and bat poop. did not go in it. All in all they had a decent time and price was right. Pictures a bit pricey but that is to be expected when you are a tourist.
I read all of the reviews before booking and compiled the recommendations before leaving, i have listed below an easy cut and paste bullet point suggestions: 1- Bring cash 2- get locker there-$5 (At the actual buggy place, not the first meeting place) 3- bring a change of clothes 4- bring a towel 5- Small soap bar (new, my suggestion!!) 6- Wear clothes and under garnets that you will leave at the buggy resort (so muddy and trashed, bring home not worth it) 7- Closed toe shoes/sandals (make sure you leave there or are water/washable sandals) 8- bandanna for each 9- Glasses for each 10- Don't think of bringing your extra bag/staff on the buggy ride, it will get trashed and soaked
We enjoyed the ride so much and will do it again when we come to Mexico.
Great excursion. My kids loved it. Be prepared to get very dirty.
