Buggy Island Overview and Snorkel
Sale Price: $89.00
This excursion will take you on a fun and entertaining journey around the island of Cozumel. Ride in a customized dune buggy and visit the most interesting spots. Snorkel in pristine water and enjoy a delicious Mexican meal by the beach.
Once you have met your Cozumel tour guide, you will be assigned to a 4-seater buggy and have a brief operational orientation before boarding. From here, you will drive to a beautiful beach where you will stop to walk on the white sand, work on your tan, swim in the beautiful Cozumel waters, have a quick snack at the local restaurant (at your own expense) or even play some beach volleyball!
After your beach stop, you'll drive along Cozumel's eastern coastline, where you will pass deserted natural beaches for breath-taking views and several photo opportunities.
Continue your Cozumel excursion towards El Cedral, a historic town in which traditional Mayan culture is still maintained. Admire the quaint and colonial town church before visiting an ancient Mayan ruin and the house of the town's first 19th century inhabitant. Immerse yourself in the authentic culture of the region by visiting a local Mayan family's home to eat a traditional snack that has been prepared on site. Learn about the lifestyle, festivities and culinary customs of the indigenous families that reside in the village.
Next, you will visit the SkyReef Beach Club for a great guided snorkeling tour from the shore. Here you will discover the colorful marine life in the crystal clear waters of Cozumel.
After your day of Cozumel cruise excursions, we're sure you've worked up an appetite. Get ready to savor a delicious Mexican lunch by the beach while enjoying a magnificent ocean view. Choose from sizzling chicken fajitas, quesadillas or fish tacos, and then take in the views of the ocean as your meal is served.
Once you have finished your lunch, you will be returned to the meeting location. For guests with a little extra time and nothing to do, stay and enjoy (at no extra cost) the facilities at the SkyReef Beach Club. If you choose to stay, you will be responsible for taking a taxi back to the ship pier (not included) and ensuring you are on time for your ship's departure.

We loved the buggy drives - but if you are a very large or frail person you might find it challenging to get in/extract yourself from the buggy! They were brightly colored and a blast to drive across the island enjoying ocean views and a couple of stops. Ronny was our guide - attentive, informative, and entertaining. The Mayan village stop included a brief language lesson and tasting of Mayan food plus opportunity to shop. The snorkel piece had to be cancelled due to high winds but clearly was the right, if disappointing, decision. You had to take a cab to the site (price for that seemed to vary considerably!) but Ronny let us drive the buggies back to the ship which was very cool and saved the cab fare.

This was a great excursion! The staff was friendly and very informative. We were taken to wonderful places. It was a true taste of Cozumel. The thing that made it more enjoyable and fun for us was the interactive part for us to drive the buggies and caravan; much better than just sitting on a tour bus/van.
This tour was a lot of fun. The cars were really cool! They took us along the coast which was beautiful? We stopped at a beach and were able to enjoy the water and scarcer for a while before heading to the next stop. At the second stop we did some snorkeling which was really great! Had some excellent fish tacos and drinks before heading Back. The guides were really great and made the tour enjoyable.
