Second Time on This Tour and another 5 Stars!
March 04, 2020
This is our second time on this tour since we enjoyed it so much the first time 4 years ago. Felipe was excellent as he was also our tour guide on the first one! The jeeps are old and worn out which is my only complaint.Punta Sur was just as I remembered it, quiet, beautiful, and breathtaking.Lighthouse views was fantastic.The beach was more than perfect, we had high winds all day in Cozumel from when we arrived to when we left. I asked the owner when he was putting our wrist bands on that I wanted to snorkel so bad and asked how the winds were at the beach we were going to, he showed me a picture and said no worries, it's on south side, no winds. He was spot on! We saw multiple fish around the reefs, a 3 feet stingray which caught me by surprise laying on the bottom.The sand was soft. The food was good. Tequila tour was memorable, we had the best tour guide.Tequila tastings were free, buying bottles were a bit pricey but hey it's authentic Mexican Tequila!.Felipe was fantastic!

When we were looking for a shore excursion for our first cruise, we found the jeep adventure providing a little bit of everything for all of us in our family. Yes in deed it met our expectations and we enjoyed the fact we were able to drive into the island. This tour is only for people who wants loves quantity over qualtiy. The mayan ruins were a joke just a 6 foot wall and the snorkeling was done near the shore with very little wild animals. We enjoyed the bit of everything and cudos to our tour cordinator Carlos was excellent and his hospitality is great be it spotting a crocodile in the lagoon to serving chilled water after the climb in light house or explaining the 6 feet wall and make us imagine how Mayan's used it.

Arturo and Galia are very nice. Snorkeling stop is wonderful, lots of fish. Tequila tasting is fun and no pressure to buy. I believe they offer very good tequila but expensive too. Jade Cavern is so so. That is it. It would be really nice to offer one more stop at any public beach for 20-30 minutes that will be super! Their jeeps are great!

The best day of our cruise!
August 19, 2019
This was an amazing day in Cozumel! Our guide, Felipe, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and local wildlife. Our tour group consisted of four people in one jeep led by Felipe in another vehicle. At Punta Sur we saw a lagoon with crocodiles, Mayan ruins, and beautiful beaches. We climbed a lighthouse for amazing views! Shopping was available from a few local artesans. On our way out of Punta Sur, we saw a caravan of 30-40 jeeps and were told this was the cruise ship's excursion. Boy, were we glad we chose Shore Excursions instead! Next we went to a gorgeous beach for swimming, snorkeling, relaxing, and a delicious lunch. On the way back to town we stopped at a tequila shop where they gave us a demonstration of how tequila is made by this family who has been crafting it for almost 200 years. There we got to taste about 6 or 7 tequilas and tequila infusions. Best tequila I've ever had! This was by far the best excursion of our cruise and Felipe helped make it so much fun!
So Much Fun!
July 17, 2019
There were 8 of us that went on this adventure. There is a guide that takes you all over the island and he was a wealth of information. I have been to Cozumel many times, but learned a lot on this tour. I would highly recommend it!

Tour was a blast and Carlos was great!
June 03, 2019
First, our tour guide Carlos was funny and knowledgeable. Get him if you can. As for the tour, we were the only ones on the tour, so we had a private tour guide who gave us options on what to see and do. Driving the stick shift Jeep was fun but be aware- not one single gauge in it works! Not a problem, just adds to the authenticity of it. Another note- Cozumel was 97 when we were there. if you put the top down on the Jeep, expect to burn your a$%% off on those leather seats! Carlos used "Mexican seat coolers" and poured bottled water on the seats for us lol! Again he was great- we saw El Cedral, toured Cozumel, and went to the tequila tour! Worth the money!

Our Jeep had a few problems and we worried alittle on the drive. However, our tour guides Pedro and Ruy were awesome and gave us lots of information while on the tour. The beach was beautiful and the food was amazing ♡♡ everyone there was nice and friendly. Even our waiter was telling us history about the island. It was a great tour and we would recommend it. It was also cool to stand at the end point of Mexico! The views are just amazing!!

May 02, 2019
I cannot say enough about the great time we had on this excursion. We felt like we really saw Cozumel and the beautiful on the other side of the city. Driving in the jeeps was so fun and this was a balance of education on their ecosystem, sightseeing and a chance to snorkel and have a traditional lunch in the beach. What a bargain for an all day experience!
Reviewer: Sue Greene
Not exactly as described
April 30, 2019
Description said Jeep tour to far side, stop in Punta Sur, then lunch. We stopped in town to go shopping, we toured a tequila factory, then went to far side. Did not do Punta Sur due to weather conditions, so went to old Mayan city instead (not ruins- just an old town with more shopping) then to lunch stop. Served the most mediocre fajitas I've ever had. Disappointing. Beach was beautiful, but we had a ton of rain, staff made the most of the situation. We had no interest in all the other stops- would have liked to know that was part of the tour!

Finding our excursion was a bit confusing. We had to ask locals for help to find the correct taxi. Then it was about a 10 minute drive to the excursion location so allow for time that.

April 03, 2019
We drove along the coast road. Went to a gorgeous beach. One of the guides took the 4 of us out swimming to reef and showed us around for an hour. Good lunch. Went to nature reserve and saw crocodiles and other wild life. The whole time we were well taken care of from the guides. Went to 500 year old Mayan lighthouse. Went to authentic tequila manufacturing spot. You could sample and buy if you liked with no pressure. Really fun and well worth the price. No problems. I would recommend this. Make sure one person can drive standard.

I enjoyed this excursion more than 5 others I have been on. The meeting place was very close to the port (too close to even get lost.) Someone met us there and took us to another close location where we met our guide, Nestor, and got in the Jeep. My daughter and I shared driving the five speed with Nestor in the backseat. Ours was the only Jeep (no caravan.). Nestor was very polite and his English was pretty good. We went to a tower we climbed for a view, to a lighthouse we climbed, then to a beach. Snorkeling gear was provided. My daughter and I had another guide who led us snorkeling. No one else came with us. Then we walked back to the resort where a delicious meal of fajitas, rice and beans was brought out to us. Nestor showed us a few other stops. We really felt that we were treated like locals.

we scheduled a jeep tour of the island which was suppose to be a caravan of jeeps following each other; turns out we were a caravan of one. I drove while the guide sat in the back giving us a private tour. Because it was just us, we could set our own itinerary. Would recommend this tour to all

Fortunately, one of the men in our group loved to drive a standard shift; so my husband and I sat in the back and enjoyed the sites of Cozumel. The jeep ran well, although it probably would have been scrapped years ago in the US. Our tour guide was great about stopping at sight-seeing spots and explaining their importance. He always had soda and water available for us. Where we stopped for lunch was disappointing only because high surf due to winds stopped us from going into the water. On a less windy day, the spot would be great. Lunch there was interesting. Three or four raccoons stayed around us, and a couple of people from the area kept trying to shoo them off. My husband ordered 1 mixed drink, and I ordered 1 soda--costing us a surprising $20. On the way back to the ship, we stopped at a facility showing what a rum distillery would be like. We all got a free drink and were given samples of different kinds of flavored rums. .

What a Ride and Adventure
January 31, 2019
The Cozumel Jeep and Beach Adventure is a way to see Cozumel. Jeep ride to the conservation park, was quite a ride, lol! The natural park road was bumpy with potholes, BUT PLEASE do not be discouraged, it’s worth it! You will see a lagoon look out, the vegetation is surrounded with mangroves very lush and green and across the road a Mayan lighthouse ruin. Our guide described the history of the ruin, then you will see an actual lighthouse. To the beach for a Mexican (had the fish taco) lunch, snorkeling, it was amazing - saw colourful fish, the deeper end lobster, more beautiful colourful fish. After relaxing on the beach, stopped at a tequila farm where they grew agave and processed tequila. Tasted various types of tequila. Heading back drove through the coast, towards the city, you could see how the people lived, their means of transportation is mainly the SCOOTER, they were everywhere! What an experience - I love Cozumel!!

What a fun day!! It was a sunny, warm day and it was nice Carlos and Carlos brought cold water. My wife and I have been to Cozumel several times and were going to just walk around town but we were both glad we booked this adventure. The other side of the island is incredible. The colors of the ocean were beautiful!! I climbed the lighthouse and enjoyed a the view all around. The snorkeling wasn't the best I've seen, but the water and beach were nice. Lunch was beach side and good. Good Margaritas too(not included in the tour price). Watch out for the begging Racoon. Back in the Jeep to stop at the blowhole for pix. Then we stopped at a family owned Tequila shop for some tasting and knowledge of Tequila. The bottles were NOT cheap, but the Tequila was outstanding!!! We had never tasted anything like it. Worth purchasing at least1 bottle of this unique liquor. We would definitely choose this company again. Thanks for the awesome experience!!

After selecting your jeep, we all drove around the island following a lead car. The scenery was gorgeous and they even take your picture at a stop near the beach. After driving a while, we arrived at Punta Sur which is a beautiful part of the island. We saw a small Mayan ruin and a huge lagoon with an observation tower. Then we drove to the beach area where we climbed a lighthouse to get awesome views. Our last stop was at a small beach resort that served us a great lunch. You can just relax or do some snorkeling right off the beach there.

May 01, 2018
We had a group of 12 ranging in age from 8 to 70 and everyone enjoyed this excursion. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about the area and were great. The best thing was it was only our group of 12 together we didn't have to follow a long line of Jeeps like we saw with other tours. That personal touch was very nice! My only complaint was we waited almost an hour past our tour time before we left. There was no reason for that as the Jeeps were ready and so were the guides. It literally took our whole day in Cozumel so if that isnt what you want please dont book this tour. We wish we had more time to shop!

We went to a protected park, a Mayan ruin, and a lighthouse. We then went to a beach resort for lunch and snorkeling. Lunch was amazing, and the snorkeling was a lot of fun. Our tour guide gave instructions for first time snorkelers and pointed out different things to view out in the water. We also stopped at a place to learn how tequila is made.

Getting off the ship and getting into our own jeep let us get away from the crowds and get a great scenic tour. Each stop was great, and we spent just enough time at each one to really enjoy the day and come back relaxed. Note the jeeps part of our excursion were all manual so someone needs to know how to drive a stick shift. The view from the lighthouse was breathtaking.

A Great Way to See the Natural Beauty of Cozumel
December 11, 2017
The port of Cozumel is a bustling place of bars beaches, music and souvenirs stores. We made our way to our excursion meeting point. The tour group made us comfortable offing us drinks and WiFi as we waited to leave on our adventure. The wifi was welcome after nearly a week of no communication. The tour was a little late starting, but it was the best excursion I have ever been on. My fiance' got the privilege of driving the jeep, he was thrilled! Then out we went, traveling along the coastline until we arrived at the state preserved park. We were able to see ruins from the Mayans, iguanas and crocodiles in their natural state. A quick stop to a lighthouse and museum. Finally arriving at a beautiful beach. The beach was peaceful, no one trying to sell you souvenirs. Just beauty all around with music softly playing in the background. Drink and food (included) delivered to your beach chair, or a table. I would do this again in a second. Well worth the money.

No prob getting to the ship on time w/ shopping on our way back. (short walk for Carnival's port). This is a great experience for all ages if you want a variety of activity in a day trip. All the employees where welcoming and relaxed making the day enjoyable. Only draw back is the Jeeps are not new and fancy but hey just more adventure! haha

A fun experience and different. The only real issue is the ship had clocks turned back one hour which matched the time on shore, so we were an hour late before we even docked. We still made our way to the excursion point and ran into another couple from the ship doing the same thing. The company was gracious and put a Jeep tour together for just the 5 of us. It turned out awesome with just two jeeps following the guides in a third vehicle. We snorkeled under supervision which is ok but not the best for our liking, but safety first! The lunch was good but all of us were a little hesitant eating the veggies and fish tacos. We figured your company would have checked this out so we were ok. We all thought the tequila place was over priced and very touristy. Your choice to purchase or not. Don’t be alarmed if the gages don’t work in your Jeep all part of the adventure! We would do this again the guides made it fun.... please adjust your time of excursion!
Cozumel Beach and Jeep tour
November 02, 2017
We loved our tour guides. They were very attentive; on every stop they made sure we had water to drink. They even helped some of us get in and out of the jeeps by putting their cooler on the floor. They were knowledgeable on every stop we made. At the beach they made sure those that wanted to snorkel were properly informed about the reef and what was going to happen. They were courteous and respectful and we feel they gave great information about the land around us.

My wife and I were in Cozumel for 7 hours and this excursion was perfect for the time and the cost. Our guide, Filipe, was great. He was personal, respectful and very knowledgeable of the area. He didn't like the way our Jeep started driving and called to have someone meet us with another one. It wasn't much of a delay and I was grateful he resolved and issue before it arrived. I would sign up for this again, but I'll bring bug spray next time for some areas of Punta Sur.

We stopped at the local tequila factory where we had samples. We had a lot of fun on this excursion.

Our best excursion of the cruise
August 18, 2017
This excursion was excellent. We had Reuben as our guide and he was perfect. It was just my wife and I on the tour and so Reuben was able to focus his attention towards us. He was conscious of time and great at keeping us ahead of the crowd (other excursion groups). He took us out snorkeling along the reef for about an hour and saw beautiful fish. I would recommend this tour as it was both active and relaxing. If you get Reuben as your guide then that is a plus.

This is an excellent way to see Punta Sur. The jeep ride from the port covered lots of scenic ground. Felipe was a great host. The photographer was helpful and professional.

As a single mom of two, I was hesitant to do this excursion, but committed to it have reading more positive than negative reviews. Doing the earlier time (I was given two) was the best choice as the places we went seemed to get busier as the day went on. There's little gift shops we stopped by and saw some neat wild life, the lunch was decent. Ate at the beach where you could either snorkel or just relax by the water, just note that you have to pay for your drinks. We went on a neat little Tequila tasting tour and then rode through the hustle and bustle of the town. A lot of scooters to watch out for, and while some reviews said the town was sketchy, I wasn't fearful. People seemed to be used to the jeep tours.

We exited the ship and walked about 1/4 mile to the hotel where the excursion started. Tour guide was very helpful explained we would wait for the others inside. about 1/2 hour later walked across the street to pick the jeeps up. No automatic, only. stick shift. Jeeps were all pretty new and drove well. Beautiful drive to a small Ruin, a light house then the beach. We had a nice lunch at the beach and stayed about an hour. Unfortunately it was too windy for snorkeling. On the drive back we stopped at a tequila factory which had tastings and a presentation but tequila was very expensive. It was a very nice day. Water provided through out the day. Worth the expense

We enjoyed this excursion more than the Cayman in a Nutshell. It seemed more informative and covered more of a variety of areas on the island. Had a great group leader. Wish we had read the fine print closer about having to be our own driver and it was stick shift. Luckily both men in our jeep had driven stick before in their "younger"days. Was not really impressed with our lunch. Took a long time to be served, especially since we assumed they knew we were coming. It was plenty but much flavor. It also ran on time :)

Cozumel Was Beautiful and Relaxing
January 14, 2017
It was wonderful being back in Mexico once again even though this was our first time in Cozumel. Cozumel is a beautiful place to visit, relax and take in the sites. We started in the city and then ended up at Punta Sur beach. We saw a Mayan lighthouse ruin which was very interesting. It was cool finding out just how they did things in their time and how it all fit together. We were then given time to explore, shop and take pictures of the surrounding sites. We then went to a private beach to relax and grab some lunch. There was snorkeling, white sand beaches, clear blue water and no rush what so ever. We all had a relaxing time and my wife was even able to get a massage. We will definitely be back to Cozumel.
Reviewer: Mike Miller
Great company to work with - very accommodating!
January 12, 2017
When we got to the meeting point, the host informed us that the excursion would go too long and we wouldn't make it back in time, but the host graciously offered a similar tour that was an hour shorter and would get us back in time. We hit most of the same places except the nature preserve and we rode an open air bus rather than jeeps. The Mayan temple was small, but the guide was informative about the culture and religions past and present. Learned about black coral and had an opportunity to buy. Stopped for a delicious lunch (which the host paid for us since our original excursion was more $ than this one) on the water. We had an opportunity to swim in the ocean or pool, swing in a hammock, or do a pedicure with the minnows! We then hit the Tequila place. It isn't a "factory", but they talk you through the origins of tequila, how it's made, a tasting and time to buy. I truly appreciated the guide/host coming through for us and accommodating a change and even paying for lunch!
Best Excursion Ever
January 09, 2017
We had a blast cruising around the island and see the beautiful coast. Our 5-1/2 hour trip ended up being more like 6-12 hours but our guides made absolutely sure we got back in plenty of time to catch the ship. If you only have time for one excursion, make this the one.
January 01, 2017
First of all, my wife and I were the only people on this excursion. Others on a similar excursion were in larger groups and their Jeeps were near new. The Jeep my wife drove was a stick and looked to be on its last leg. Our guide drove a vw bug with no top, reluctantly we followed him and made several stops. A beach resort that was very beautiful and relaxing. The restaurant we ate at was outdoors, next to a beach and the food was delicious. The ride back went through the downtown area and we figure this is where the adventure was, narrow streets and yielding traffic. We had a fantastic time. The guide was polite and knoweglable. If we go back we'll probably pick this one again!

We could not have gotten a more personable and knowledgeable tour guide! We were lucky enough to be the only jeep in the tour so we really got special attention. All the stops along the tour were enjoyed by our family. Ruben even went out of his way to make sure that my daughter and I were able to enjoy a massage on the beach. As we were entering the parking lot of the restaurant that we were eating at he quickly noticed two ladies that were obviously heading home after their day of massaging. He asked them if they would be willing to stay and they both agreed and even waited for about half an hour for us while we ate our already prepared dinner. We truly enjoyed Ruben's company and we would suggest to others that they request him if possible! Great day at Cozumel.

Taking out the weather, the trip was/would of been great! It was a block walk to meet up with the tour guides. They were friendly & informative. We walked another bit to pick up the jeeps and took off for a nice drive. Basically I believe we drove all around the island. The stops were nice. Unfortunately, when we got to the beach, the rain kicked in. There weren't many places to hang out and stay dry while others swam or snorkeled. When we left to go to lunch, the long beautiful drive was rough as we had a roof on the jeep, but no sides or back so it was not pleasant while we drove. Suggestion, have the sides available to put down for such situations. Also our jeeps had 2 doors which was a little difficult for us older folks to get into the back seats. The food was good & the final drive was better as the rain slowed down. A memorable day. I do recommend this tour, but bring a poncho. :-)

Best Excursion of the Cruise
April 22, 2016
We had what equated to a private 5 hour tour. Fantastic guides led us to a beautiful beach park, treated us to a wonderful lunch on the water and gave us a quiet hour on a beach to enjoy the water!
Highlight of our cruise!
April 19, 2016
Great excursion and great company! There was only one other couple in our group so we did have to share 1 jeep. My husband drove the whole time but you would have to switch off if everyone wants to drive. Jeep excursions seemed very popular and you do end up running into other groups at the stops. The big difference (compared to booking it through the cruise) is that this one seemed more like a personal tour and the guide asked us our preference on how long we wanted to stay at some of the stops. We felt like we did a lot in this excursion. (This was a cruise stop for us and the previous day we were in Belize and did the tubing which wasn't as exciting as we had expected so this more than made up for it!) At the end he did bring us to a great restaurant, the price of the food was included but the drinks were not, so bring cash if you want to get a soda or bottled water at lunch. The guide did keep a cooler of bottled water for us during the day. The excursion is great for everyone (kids who can sit in the back w/out car seats). Snorkeling is done at the beach so for those of you who want to relax on the beach can do so while those of you who want to snorkel can snorkel. The light house is pretty narrow going up the steps which is probably the only part to the tour that someone w/limited mobility would have problems with.

Enjoyed ""ratting"" around in a funky jeep. My wife snorkeled one of the reefs while I drank beer on the beach - perfect! Food was very good, the guides were excellent and the weather was perfect. My wife really had a good time clicking away with her camera and even managed to get the jeep stuck in the sand but she got us out amid our laughs and joking. Low key, laid-back and very enjoyable.

Wonderful day in Cozumel
January 11, 2016
We really enjoyed our day in Cozumel. We loved driving down the coast and taking in all of the beauty.
January 08, 2016
Huge drawback having to share a jeep with another couple. One couple gets screwed by having to sit in the back. There are frequent stops and getting in and out of the jeeps is not easy for even athletic folks let alone older couples. The best part of the tour was the stop over at the beach where we got to snorkel. Stop was only for 1-hour. Should have been able to stay at the beach longer. Snorkeling was fabulous.

A Beatiful drive

The guide Felipe was awesome. We were a little rushed but got back to the boat on time. Maybe one less activity and it would have been more enjoyable. The EcoPark was beautiful and the snorkeling was wonderful. Our guide showed us lobster live conch crabs and many tropical fish. The food included was great and the Margarita was the best. They provided water which was great cause it was hot and we were very active.
a fantastic adventure of the entire island

This is just a great way to experience Cozumel. Our guide Felipe was fantastic! He molded the experience to us and our interests. He is an expert on Cozumel and the Mayan Ruins. Request Felipe.

We had a great time. We were the only family in this tour for the day so we got to pick our stops. Our stops included a light house, a nice beach, a Tequila factory, and anywhere along the coast for a picture. The ocean was rough so we could not snorkel but we did get to swim.

This was a fun excursion with a good variety of activities. It was neat driving around the island and our guide, Santiago, was incredibly knowledgeable and just an all around friendly guy. Great views from the light house and in general, and a good chance at seeing a crocodile. With the stop at the coral reef, a rum tasting, and a few small Mayan ruins, this tour really let's you see everything.

If you want to get away from the city of Cozumel this is it. First our guide led us to the far side of the island where we went to the natural park perserve then we went to a very secluded beach for some swimming, Snorkling (gear was provided) and relaxing in the sun and sand. then we drove along to a secluded resturant where we had lunch (drinks were extra and a little pricey american bar prices) then we drove back to our original meeting area through town. A real thrill and I will diffinatly do it again.

What a Great way to see Cozumel on a day trip!!
August 18, 2015
This was the best shore excursion I have been on. The personnel, the venues and the accommodations were all excellent. Easy to find, easy to navigate, great sites to see and experience. We all had a blast and feel that we got the whole Cozumel experience in 5 hours on shore. We even had time to shop and get back to the ship with no problems. Would do it again - YES!!!!
Worth the time and money
July 15, 2015
I enjoyed all of the activities. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I felt we had adequate time to do everything and return to the ship in plenty of time. The tequila tasting was an added bonus that I really enjoyed. Also, the beach area was beautiful and very relaxing.

Well worth money, me & 10 year old daughter did this in April. She says this was best part of cruise.
April 08, 2015
It was nice to get off the boat and ride in an open air jeep. On the way to the beach, you got to see what city life in Cozumel looks like and how the people live. The beach is beautiful and you have the choice to hang at the beach or snorkel. Our group split up and both groups had fun. My 10 year old hung at the beach but used the mask to ""snorkel"" just a few feet off the shore. He loved it! and saw tons of fish! Take time to enjoy a margarita and some coconut water while hanging out. The next stop is the crocodile sighting area. Not too exciting for me. Then the lighthouse which is pretty cool. Also gives you a chance to shop alittle. Then the ride to the lunch spot is beautiful as you follow the beach/shore line. Lunch was surprisingly good. And then you take one more stop at a place that makes tequila. It was quite interesting and the samples are excellent! We bought a bottle! Then back to the ship.
Learned A Lot About Cozumel!
April 02, 2015
The Jeep tour was not what I was expecting. Very cool that we were able to drive our own Jeep. Was able to see the entire island of Cozumel, and, see things we would never have seen otherwise. The lighthouse, the ""tortoise"" protected beaches, the ""cocodrilos"", the ""tequila factory/zoo"", great beaches. And, most importantly, Santiago, the tour guide ""extraordinaire""; seriously, it's amazing, but it really gets down to ""who is your guide"". Again, Santiago was amazing! In total control, knowledgeable about everything Cozumel, a real leader and a very nice guy. Made the experience enjoyable, without worry. Great excursion!
March 28, 2015
made me see a different perspective of Cozumel
Amazing time-great way to see the island
March 16, 2015
This was a nearly perfect excursion. A lot of stops at great places such as national parks, beaches, authentic restaurant, tequila factory, a lighthouse and more. I had no real expectations about this excursion. The tour was amazing. The tour guide was great. We never felt rushed and ended up spending about 30 extra minutes on the tour. Highly recommended to anyone seeking culture, adventure, good food, amazing views, relaxation on the beach, etc.
February 16, 2015
This excursion was certainly cram packed with fun! From the Jeeps to the beach to the local food, my family had a blast. We would not have been able to see and do as much as we did on our own! Some things you should know: 1.) I wouldn't say that Punta Sur Bay has year-round crystal-clear waters. The day we were there, it was cloudy and while some still snorkeled, it was hard to see the reef and fish clearly. 2.) There are a few different reefs. Each reef is quite small and getting to it is not for the out of shape on a rough water day. However, there were several exotic fish, which made up for the cloudy waters. 3.) Bring your own water. The water provided is very small and barely quenches your thirst. The only huge negative was the added tequila tasting, which is not mentioned in the description on the website. This took time out of our day so that the guides could make a few extra bucks on commission from the manufacturer if someone purchased tequila. This added ""feature"" only caused us to rush back to the ship, giving us very little time to board. All in all, my family had a wonderful time!
Nice Ride and Guide!
February 15, 2015
Got to drive and the guide went with us to enhance the tour. Made a few stops along the way. The water was a little to strong for snorkeling that day so we hung out at the beach and laid in the hammocks for a while. Enjoyed driving a 5 speed jeep around the island.
January 29, 2015
Everything about this excursion was fantastic. The only thing I'd have done differently was I would have snorkeled. Our guide said the water was not very clear to see anything along with it would take a lot of energy to get out to the reefs so he was only going to take our group w/ newby's to snorkeling 1/2 way. The newby's said water was clear & seen plenty of fish & starfish. My fault I decided not to go listening to guide's advice vs seeing for myself though.
Very Enjoyable Experience!
January 22, 2015
If you are going to have a camera person, they need to be present for each of the stops that we make on the trip to take pictures. Having someone take pictures at the beginning and wanting to be paid isn't worth it.
Very fun and gorgeous beach
January 08, 2015
The ride to the lighthouse was very long, however, the beach is gorgeous and there is a variety of activities which includes: visiting a lighthouse, a nature preserve, a beach, snorkeling, a tequila tasting tour, and free food.

December 17, 2014
Our guide was amazing! He was personable fun and spoke English. The jeeps seemed well maintained but make sure someone can drive manual. If there are only two of you you will probably have another random two people. But we met a great couple that ride along with us. We saw some small Mayan ruins, a beautiful lighthouse with amazing views, a cool protected wildlife area with Crocadiles and had an authentic lunch at a great little place. Our guide even let us drive the jeep back close to our cruise boat instead of taking a taxi. Highly recommend this trip if you love driving around and getting out of the tourist areas.

Awesome Cozumel experience!
October 24, 2014
Since our group was small, we enjoyed the flexibility on the tour. It was our first time really getting out and around Cozumel, so we loved the rides to scenic areas, and it was nice being able to drive ourselves. There was a good mix of activities, and the wildlife preserve was much more interesting than we expected, with fabulous views, an interesting lighthouse, and a wonderful beach resort which was remarkably free of congestion, and very well maintained. Great food at a local beachside restaurant, with impressive margaritas! For as much as we traveled, we got back to the ship without being totally exhausted, and felt like we had the best experience ever in Cozumel.

Xio was the best guide! She met us on the boat and led us to our Jeep. We were able to see Crocodiles, Mayan Ruins but best was beach and snorkeling. It was our first time for everything. You do have a nice long swim to get to the reef but it is worth it. We saw so many fish. It was beautiful! More than I expected. Food was good, and service was great. We left and went to Lighthouse which was also great. The water was the most beautiful I have ever seen.

The guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. Also, when snorkeling, our group stayed out much longer than others that were there and I noticed a few other groups had gone out after our group went out and the other groups came back in before ours came back! It was truly a wonderful experience and I' would most definitely use this company wherever I go!

Lots of Bumpy Roads
February 23, 2014
We drove to parts of Cozumel we had never seen before. There is a lot of driving on a highway and on very bumpy dirt roads to a Mexican Natl Park. Some very pretty areas. Very good snorkeling but be warned it is a long swim to the reef then you follow the shoreline/reef line for several hundred yards. No boats involved. Great reefs and sea life if you can make the swim. The guide brings a tow line/buoy to pull you if you can't make it. You also see some Mayan ruins, not much but interesting. Would have liked the guide to have a little more info on these. No working seatbelt for driver. No Mexican seatbelt laws but they still have the laws of physics! We stopped at a roadside beach bar that had a great funny bartender and great drinks both alcohol and non-alcohol. Some scary driving in old town Cozumel, but part of the adventure. Great lunch in a local restaurant. All in all, a fun trip to see off the beaten track of Cozumel, great snorkeling, lighthouse and other stops were fun. If you have been to Cozumel a few times and want to see something different, give it a try.
What a Ride !
February 06, 2014
Overall, very pleased with the excursion. It was much longer than we anticipated (4+ hrs) We thought it would be more of an off-road Jeep experience than it was. You basically use an older Jeep (driver's seatbelt was broken) to travel to a fantastic beach and back. You see a ruin, can climb a watch tower (great views) and then drive a very, very long and slow pot hole filled road that takes for ever and offers no thrill. At the end is a beautiful beach with cool sand lounge chairs, you can snorkel (we didn't), sit in the shade, get a drink and snack. Our only criticism was that it took way too long to ride the horrible road and you only get one hour on the beach. We stopped by a tequila company on the way home. Wasn't looking forward to that and actually enjoyed it‚¶and bought some and I don't drink tequila! Ate at a very good and authentic restaurant near the water then grabbed a taxi to the ship. Glad I took a long sleeve shirt as it was cooler and wind while riding was crisp. If you are only two‚¶.the jeeps are stick shift‚¶.back seats are typically small so you might be in the back. If the top is off, you'll get a lot of sun. Bring bottled water and sunscreen.

My wife and I took this trip December 2012 and loved it. We ended up in a Jeep wrangler by ourselves because of our small group size and loved riding around Cozumel with the top down. The drive was gorgeous and the snorkling was also fantastic. The swim out to the reef was tiring, but was well worth it to see the standard tropical fish AND a nurse shark, SEA TURTLE (my favorite thing), and we got a short glimpse at a ray and eel. The only negative I can think of is the fact that the food was at the very end in the resort where you meet. I think some sort of food would have been great during the middle of the trip. I was very impressed with the price and had an awesome time!

This Jeep excursion was so much fun! The hotel was easy to find where it departed from (had an amazing fajita lunch at open air restaurant as part of excursion that was delicious)after the tour. Taking the jeep was the best way to see the park in Cozumel- beyond scenic along the gulf, hiking up the big lighthouse had a gorgeous view, the ruin had some cool history to it and the snorkeling was fun! This was a great excursion and our guides were fun!

Once we got out of the city, this was such a relaxing day! We got a chance to see some Mayan ruins, saltwater crocodiles and a light house. Then it was off to the beach!

Not to be Missed!

Our group of three (my husband, my sister and myself) had an outstanding day on this excursion. We have been in Cozumel several times on various excursions and this is definitely one of the best. Our guide, David, was just amazing. The vehicle actually surprised me. It was in outstanding condition -- spotless inside and out, the clutch operated smoothly and the jeep was easy and fun to drive. Our caravan consisted of our guide plus five Jeep vehicles and it was very easy to keep up and stay together. The stop at the inlet with saltwater crocs was interesting and educational. Our time at the beach was totally relaxing. Do not miss out on a chicken quesadilla while you are there -- the three of us shared and it was simply awesome. I can't say enough about our guide David. He is an incredible asset to his company and an exceptional ambassador for the island of Cozumel! If you are in the market to explore the island a bit combined with some quality beach time -- and can drive a manual transmission vehicle, this is a great excursion choice!

Great time in Cozumel despite the rainy weather. The rain stopped for a few hours so we went on the excursion. It gave us a great view of the other side of the island and included a small mayan ruin, a wild crocodile viewing, beach time with snacks, snorkeling and lunch. Everything went great. The pro was that all the ship's excursions were cancelled but ours went! The con was that the jeeps were pretty beat up but ran decently and kept the rain out! The guides were pleasant, accomodating, helpful and fun. Would do it again!

Great way to experience Cozumel
November 25, 2012
We would highly recommend this shore excursion! We had no difficulties finding the representatives at the hotel (a brief walk from the dock), and our guide David was fantastic. Because there were only 6 of us, we had 2 Jeeps plus David's. Having a little extra time, he took us to a tequila tasting, where we were educated on the process of producing tequila. Driving there enabled us to see additional parts of the town of Cozumel. From there we drove (on a well-paved highway) to Punta Sur, where we saw the little Mayan ruin, crocodiles, and ended up on a lovely, uncrowded beach, where we snorkeled. Just wish we had more time at the beach. Then it was on to the lighthouse, where we enjoyed margaritas, and then back to the hotel for delicious fajitas. David was so helpful and very informative about the island and their culture. For the opportunity to see a large portion of the island and enjoy several experiences without a crowd, don't hesitate to sign up for this shore excursion!

This trip was a lot of fun! The guides were very friendly and the jeeps were in pretty good shape. The drive around the island was a lot of fun once we got out of the city. We didn't snorkle since the reef was out so far, but had a great time laying in the hammocks and drinking margaritas. The real highlight of the trip was the lighthouse visit since I have toured many in the past. We got to climb the lighthouse and even went outside the lens room for a great view. (This is something that is not allowed on any of the other 25+ lighthouse tours I've been on.) We ended up back at the hotel where we ate an average, and pretty bland meal. Not bad, not great. Overall, a nice off-the-ship excursion.

Great trip to see the sights away from port. Felt safe. Im not the type to rent a moped and just drive around. This was a guided drive and a good value. Walking out of the port can be a little intimidating but its worth the walk. Usually just outside the gates to see the great things away from the ship and save money. They treat you like royalty.
June 30, 2012
Our ship docked late and we were concerned what would happen to our tour due to the fact we had a meeting time. The location off the pier was a quick walk and once there we were greeted by a guide who went to work right away to get us squared away. Lorenzo was an awesome guide who showed us to our Jeep (older but worked fine) and we set off following him in his jeep. The experience of just my husband and I and the guide made for a wonderful day. We stopped at various points along the Island including the lighthouse, a ruin, lagoon, and area to snorkel or relax. It concluded with a delicious chicken fajita lunch and the option to use the resorts pool. All in all one of the best excursions I have ever been on. HIghly recommend the use of this tour.

Great Day on Cozumel

This was a fun trip! Loved this adventure. Lots to do. The guides were great. This is a great way to see the island! Great time!
Perfect family excursion!!

An excellent choice for an overview of Cozumel with a little bit of everything. Our guide, Fred, was great with our two boys, helping them with first time snorkeling, pointing out things for them to see, and very accomodating. We had the pleasure of being the only ones for the time we chose and were treated to a personal tour. Fred was very informative, easy going, and fun. Our boys were treated to extra attention from his friends on the tour, getting banana slices to feed the iguanas was a highlight. The food at the end of the excursion was wonderful (BEST CHICKEN FAJITAS EVER!!) and I would recommend this trip to anyone thinking about it - well worth the cost. You might get lucky and end up with Fred as your personal guide :)
Fantastic Tour and Snorkel

The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable about the various attractions we encountered on the trip. Saw a Maya ruin along with a nice lighthouse at the south tip of the island. I highly recommend this trip!

Ernie and David were our guides and they were great fun. I am Senior Citizen and wanted to snorkle but was afraid of my stamina. The guides encouraged me and helped me when I got tired. They waited for me to catch up. I was so happy I was able to do this and finish it still alive (no heart attack). It was great.

We had so much fun...the greatest plus was the two tour guides. They were gracious, knowledgeable, fun, and couldn't do enough to mke the day special.

Our guide Lorenzo was like an old friend that we hadn't seen since college! He was friendly and knew everything about the island he calls home. The Jeeps were a blast and the scenery was amazing. Quiet reserve beach, snorkeling a reef, cool locals, two thumbs way up!

Adam and Hernan were really wonderful and made this excursion worthwhile. Adam was entertaining and Hernan was patient and kind, probably saved my life during snorkeling! Thanks for a great trip!

The jeep tour provided great photo opportunities of the island beaches and vegetation. It was fun to break away from the tourist shops and enjoy the sun and snorkeling. Our guides, Adan and Hernan, were gracious, friendly, and knowledgeable. The authentic Mexican lunch was delicious. However, you must be able to drive a stick shift. I highly recommend this excursion.

This was a great excursion! The tour guide was very friendly. It takes you to the less developed side of Cozumel. The Mayan ruins are a very small part of this excursion, but the whole trip was great and well worth it!
Money well spent!
February 27, 2012
The guides were a lot of fun and obviously enjoy what they do. I would have liked to have slightly less driving and more time to snorkel. That is the ONLY thing I would change. I thought it was a great value.

I was very happy to find out that a portion of the costs of the excursion goes to preserving the natural habitat for the wild life that abounds there.

Wonderful overall adventure. The snorkeling was fabulous. The jeep ride was a great adventure and the lunch after was tasty and at a beautiful resort in Cozumel. Highly recommended. Our guides were excellent.
January 16, 2012
Lorenzo and Jorge were great! The jeeps were in good condition, we stopped along the way at a crocodile sanctuary, Mayan temple, and lighthouse, then arrived at the beach where you could either hang out at the beach or take the snorkeling tour with the group. This was a really fun time.
January 15, 2012
One excursion you gotta do. If you can, request that your guide be 'Lorenzo."" He is very knowledgeable and made the trip enjoyable. The meal provided afterward was excellent. The vehicles were Jeep Wranglers with the tops down (make sure you bring the sun screen, expecially if you're a little thin on top) and were obviously used, but all things considered,they were in good shape. If you're not into the snorkling, the beach has enough shade to just sit back and relax for the 90 minutes that you're there. We had been to Cozumel on a privious cruise and although we did an excurison that visited some of the same places, this one was certainly more enjoyable because of Lorenzo. I could go on and on but the bottom line .... this was one of the most fun excrusions we've been on.
Great Guides Great Fun!

Road trip was great, snorkeling was awesome, jeeps were a little rough but got us where we needed to go. Lunch was very good. Well worth the money,,,
Great time off roading!!!
December 30, 2011
Our guide was great right from the get go, making extra sure that everyone was comfortable... and well hydrated. The tour included an educational component which was a pleasant surprise... The jeeps were manual transmission which made it all the better for me!!!
Had a great time

Wanted to snorkel by myself, however the guide insisted we stay together. He took us to see things I would not have seen by myself. Good choice.

This excursion was by far the best I have ever been on. It was a beautiful tour around the coast of Cozumel. For the price it cant be beat, and the food at the end was delicious (chicken fajita dinner). Our guide was very knowledgeable and had fun along with us. The jeeps were up to date and not ""ragged"" out and I would highly recomend the guided snorkling as opposed to doing it on your own. Would def take this trip again!
Like a Post Card
December 02, 2011
You got to see a lot of the island and the post card perfect water! If you are really into history and want to see a lot of ruins, this is probably not the trip. But a good variety of sites and an AMAZING AMAZING beach with GORGEOUS snorkeling! The water is crystal crystal clear. The lighthouse is BEAUTIFUL
A Must Do in Cozumel
November 04, 2011
The guides make all the difference. In what could be just a ""trip to the beach in a Jeep"" with some tour companies, the guides made this an educational adventure. From the salt marsh and its saltwater crocodiles to the lighthouse visit, ruins, and then the beach, their knowledge of local history and culture added an extra dimension to the excursion. This excursion is a great way to see see interesting points, meet interesting people (our ""Jeep-mates"" were great), and create great travel memories.

EXCELLENT GUIDES THAT WERE VERY INFORMATIVE. LORENZO AND PARTNER WERE POLITE, PATIENT, AND ACCOMMODATING. WE VERY MUCH ENJOYED THIS TRIP. BEWARE, HOWEVER, THE SWIMMING IS PRETTY STRENUOUS AND MAY BE DIFFICULT FOR SOME. ALSO, SPECIFICALLY THE SWIMMING VESTS WERE NOT IN VERY GOOD CONDITION AND SOME HAD AIR LEAKS.

Make sure to bring sunscreen and a hat. It's a long day in the sun. Make the trip up to the top of the lighthouse, the view is amazing. The chicken fajitas, chips and salsa were very good and fresh. The guides were very nice and informative. They even drove us back to our ship pier at the end of the day.

Great - Bring Sunblock!
June 16, 2011
I booked this snorkel adventure with the shore excursions group because I could not find the company they deal with directly. I paid about $8 more than the actual company charges but that's OK because I had the security of the shore excursion groups refund policy behind me. Not that we needed a refund, the tour was great! But it was nice to know that if a storm came through or the ship was unable to dock in Cozumel that we would get a full refund. You get off the ship and have to walk directly out of the port / terminal and cross the street. At the time I did this tour we went to the company's old offices 1 block down the street. They were building new offices 1 block in the other direction so in either case it was an acceptable walking distance crossing at a well-marked traffic signal. The tour takes you in a Jeep Wrangler convertible top so you will definitely have to bring sunscreen. I would also recommend a towel to sit on as our Jeep was black and you can imagine how hot the seats were with the sun beating down on them all day. But that was still fine by us. Because we were only 4 small groups of people, each group got their own Jeep. I was worried about having to share but my partner and I had an entire Jeep Wrangler to ourselves. The Jeep, as you might suspect being Mexico and being a tour vehicle, was not luxurious. The vents did not work so no A/C or heat. The radio turned on but got absolutely no reception of any kind. The Jeep had close to 100,000 miles on it and it was a 2008 model so it was well used. Although some A/C would have been nice, it was a lot of fun to go rugged. Back home I am used to my air conditioned seats (yes air conditioned seats, it's the ""in thing"" for 2011) and my climate comfort zones so going to the extreme opposite was awesome. Don't expect anything like an iPod dock, GPS, or any of the standard luxury items you expect when you purchase a new vehicle in America. First you drive to the other side of the Island about 45 minutes ‚Äì 1 hour. The second half of this leg of the journey is on dirt roads which were quite bumpy. First we got to a swamp observatory where we saw plenty of alligators and iguana's roaming around. Then a short walk to the Mayan ruin which, let's be honest, wasn't much to crow about. It was ok and I did learn some things about the Mayan's but it wasn't much to look at. Then another drive for about 20 minutes, again along bumpy dirt roads. We got to a lighthouse at the bottom-tip of the island where we stopped for a bathroom break. You could walk up the stairs of the lighthouse or look in the museum. Some people sat in hammocks on the beach. I chose to go down to the water where waves crashed over large boulders and made for a great photo-op. Then we drove for about 30 minutes, again along dirt and even bumpier roads, where we finally arrived at the snorkeling spot. It was a quiet beach with a bar, bathroom facilities and plenty of umbrellas and places to relax. I had been snorkeling before but other people in the tour had not and they got annoying. Some twink swam right into me and slapped me with her fins. What really amazed me was that the tour guide actually CAME WITH US snorkeling. Everyone expected that he would stay on the beach but NO, he came with us in the water and toured us around the reef. The snorkeling lasted about 1 hour. Afterwards we showered off, had some water and got back in the Jeeps to drive back to the cruise terminal / port. We did not go the route back and so at no time did the driving seem boring or cumbersome. We arrived back at the starting point where we then walked across the street for our lunch. It consisted of tacos but not drinks. No problem though, a beer cost $2 and I knew that back on the ship I would replenish my dehydration. The setting was a resort hotel next to the cruise terminal and although it was outdoors the restaurant was completely covered and in the shade. Beware though‚Ä¶ this is Mexico after all and when I went to the washroom there was no ""Watch Your Step"" sign. I stubbed my toe. And although back in America we think all those ""Watch Your Step"" signs are a bit silly and excessive, I guess they actually work! After everything was finished we had but a short distance to walk back to the cruise ship terminal and to the ship, less than 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend this tour. It was quite the adventure and considering the price of gas these days, the cost wasn't so bad for the value of the tour.

A truly fantastic, crowd-free excursion!
June 06, 2011
I am so glad we didn't book our excursion through the cruiseline onboard, and chose to use our discount with Cruises Only. Everyone from the ship was lined up for their excursions right at the pier ... and we were able to leave the crowd, walk a short distance to the El Cid resort to meet our tour guide for a fabulous day of Jeeping and snorkeling! The only negative was that our tour guide was late and we had to call from the resort to verify our reservation. But once he got there, we were on our way! In fact, we were the only people on the tour, so it was a very private day, and something we'll never forget! The view from the lighthouse is fantastic. And the snorkeling was great. It was our first time, and the guide was very helpful. I highly recommend wearing a hat and bringing a towel or something for your seat in the Jeep ... it got really HOT (and dusty). There is plenty of room in the Jeep for backpacks, etc. The lunch at the El Cid resort was delicious. I was so glad this excursion offered a full lunch and not just chips and salsa. We had the most delicious mango margheritas ... at an additional cost, but well worth it! We never felt rushed. Our guide let us take our time to walk, swim, relax, and we followed in our Jeep at a very nice pace to see the island.

Our tour guide was very friendly & we only had a total of 6 people in the excursion group. I am fair skinned & burn easily. I had applied 70spf sunblock several times & still got burned. The jeep does NOT have a/c and I had to put up the top on the jeep after getting burned on my head/shoulders from the sun. The tour took you along beautiful beaches & we saw crocs & a light house. I got so hot I thought I was going to pass out & that ruined my adventure. There was no a/c anywhere we went & I had to finally stand under water at the beach to cool down. My son enjoyed the snorkling & that was his favorite. We spent 1 1/2 hrs at the beach & you could swim/snorkle/lay in hammock. The lunch was very good with the chicken fajitas & was within walking distance to the pier where our ship was docked. It was hard to find the office, even though it was close to the ship dock. We had to ask directions to find it. This was a great value for the $ and you got to do alot. Just be sure & wear sunblock & bring a hat unless you want your head burned. I don't do well in extreme heat & thought I was going to be sick to my stomach several times due to heat.

We had an incredible time and would definately recommend this to others. Our entire family loved the experience - from grandma all the way to our 10 yr. old. The team of guides were great - very well organized and a lot of fun! This was the best part of our cruise. The only thing we would have liked was more time at the beach - we felt a little rushed. It was a great time!

Although we had a little difficulty identifying the tour office, our day was incredible! We experienced so much in the 4+ hour tour! We had a small group of 7. So, we were able to go at a nice pace. The ecological preserve was very rustic. The tour guide helped us spot crocodiles in their natural habitat, very quickly. And he was very informative about the small Mayan temple there. The Punta Celarain lighthouse had an absolutely, amazing view from the top. The waves crashed onto the rocky shore, sending sprays of water into the air, everywhere!It was gorgeous. Then we moved on to another beach. I had never been snorkeling before. Our guide gave good, simple instructions, and made sure we could do it, before taking our group out to the deeper waters. I loved it! I wish we could have stayed longer! Lunch was delicious and all too soon, it was time to go back aboard the ship. Just... AMAZING!

February 23, 2011
This is a great Jeep tour. I gets you away from the shopping district of Puerta Maya and takes you to a national park which has a nature preserve, lighthouse that you can walk up, a nice beach with sun, shade and hammocks and Tiki bar. Tour guide and lunch were great. We have been on several Jeep tours in the Caribbean and this was a good one. The tour office was difficult to locate, they need better signage.
This Excursion Was JUST RIGHT!
February 19, 2011
Our guide was handsome and happy! He kept the tour going but let us have a lot of freedom to set the pace and direction. Being able to be in a topless jeep and drive the shoreline and thru ""light"" rain forest areas, seeing cultural, historic and natural things of interest was exactly what we wanted in an excursion. It felt REAL.

This was the icing on the cake of our cruise to Cozumel. Our guide was WONDERFUL! We loved every stop and felt like we really got to experience Cozumel fully in a short amount of time. I would do this again and again! There can't be a better way to enjoy Cozumel in one day!
