Hop on your ATV for a great hands-on adventure exploring the treasures within the heart of Cozumel's jungle on an approximate 2-hour off road ride. Your friendly Cozumel tour guides will be waiting for you at Cedral Mayan village where you will receive all safety gear and a briefing before climbing on your ATV.
Enjoy a fun ride on wide trails, some of which are completely covered by the tree canopy, as you make your way to the exotic Jade cenote through the Cedal jungle reserve. This is one of Cozumel's well kept treasures located only 7 miles within the heart of the jungle. Put on your life vest and jump in the water for a short swim and admire the stalactite formations and the surrounding fauna at this open freshwater cavern.
After this refreshing stop you will continue off-road to an ancient Mayan coral cave. Your guide will slow down as you drive through the cave and then make a brief stop to give you the history of the native community who resided in this unique reserve, you will leave with a much better understanding and appreciation of this area of Mexico.

Of all the things we did in Cozumel. This by far was my favorite thing. The actual path you ride on is pretty bumpy and dusty so goggles and a scarf/mask is highly recommended. You were able to go fast, eveyone in our group wasn't as experienced the only downside, but there are bumps and hills to rev up and jump for the thrill seekers. The water wasn't all that clean to jump in. Highly recommend doing an early excursion, to give yourself time to explore. I absolutely loved this excursion. Rode for almost the entire time. You can go hang out at the beach on your own time after the excursion eat and shop. Definitely will do it again with a go pro, they take really good pictures during the excursion. Pricey but definitely worth the by of the digital copies, and a free usb stick.

All guides involved were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were divided up into two groups, the fast experienced drivers and the slow drivers. We were in the fast group and when I say fast, I mean FAST! It was so much fun. The tequila tasting was educational and oh so good!

Of all the excursion we did on our NCL Getaway cruise, this by far was the best. The crew that escorted us was just great. We had several people who had not been on an ATV and the crew made sure they knew what to do and had no issues. I'm glad our wife's didn't go though...if you have any type of neck/back/other medical issue, this may not be for you. You will ride over some rocky terrain that will be jarring. Prepare to take the 20 foot jump into the cavern pool and swim around as fruit bats fly overhead. We did it and it was a blast, but several in our group were too scared of the height.
