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.

This was a wonderful adventure for our group of 11. The buggy's are fun to drive even with no power steering and being a stick shift. The guides were fun as well. The stops were beautiful and the scenery as we drove along the island was beautiful. I really enjoyed the day. The only downfall was the amount of time we waited for everyone to get there to get started. There were several people that were 30 minutes late.

Fun excursion with great guides! We got to see a lot of the island, see the original Mayan settlement and go to the beach. It was very windy, so we were unable to snorkel. While this was disappointing, the guides were upfront and honest about the situation and this was completely out of their control. This excursion was the highlight of the cruise for the 8 of us who booked this trip.

We booked this excursion through Costco. We had a very good time. It was educational as well as enjoyable. Omar the guide was excellent. Though Cozumel is an island you still get a flavor of Mexico. Though the excursion was to last about 4 hours it went over 5. I would do it again. I really enjoyed sampling the different kinds of Tequila at the Tequila factory in the Mayan village. You can pick up a bottle or two while you are there. The dune buggies were Volkswagen with standard 4-speed transmission. We visited a Mayan village, two beached and snorkeled at the last one. We were back to the ship well on time.

We absolutely loved this excursion! We had our own Volkswagen Buggy standard shift and my husband was like a kid again driving around the island. We had a great snorkeling trip and enjoyed seeing all the beautiful fish. We had a great lunch included with our excursion also. Highly recommend!

We got to the meeting area and we did have to wait for other families to arrive. Looking at the reviews everyone needs to understand that over a thousand passengers are getting off a ship and it takes time. You do have to enter through the open windows (Dukes of Hazard style). Not recommended for frail elderly or pregnant women. The ride was a blast. We followed our group leader to the first stop where we did some great snorkeling by a restaurant. You go right off a small pier and it is rocky so be careful. Bring soap and shampoo, they have shower facilities at the restaurant. the included lunch was great. My wife had the fish tacos and I had the quesadilla. The kids had the regular chicken fingers and burgers. Alcoholic drinks for purchase as well. Afterwards we went to a quiet Mayan town (great for history buffs)m and then a beautiful coastline ride. The dune buggy's are great and have nice speed. Remember these vehicles are stick shift only, no automatics.
