Buggy Island Overview and Snorkel

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.

It was Fabulous! The gentlemen who led the excision were wonderful. My husband has some health issues and they bent over backwards to accommodate him. We appreciated all the special attention we, and he especially, received. Thank you so much for making our day spectacular!

Hernan (I think I'm remembering right) and Jose were our tour guides and couldn't have been better! They were fun, knowledgeable, and just pleasant to spend the day with! We saw a lot of fish on the guided snorkel. We enjoyed the authentic Mayan village with history and food cooked over a fire. Driving the dune buggy was a blast and we covered much of the island! I'd recommend this excursion to anyone up for an adventurous day in Cozumel!

Jose and Rodolpho were our guides with the G.T. Riviera staff for this trip. Jose was so personable and patiently ensured every question was answered. He and Rodolpho went out of their way to please us. The weather was perfect and the views were amazing. My adult son, grandson and I had a blast riding in the buggy. It was a little hard for me to get in and out of the buggy as a grandma, but worth it. We stopped at a beach bar which had beautiful views but there were annoying vendors wanting to sell us stuff. My son overpaid for a selfie of a bird and iguana. I overheard Jose fusing at the vendor for taking advantage of the Americans. There were photographers at the snorkel place who took great pictures but wanted too much money ($35) for a cheap, framed picture. We ended up buying just one picture without a frame for $10 just before we left. Jose and Rodolpho were our snorkel guides and were exceptionally safe and patient. Thank you, gentlemen!

Reviewer: Lorena Herrera
This tour is amazing. Everything was as described and we had a great time. All the tour guides [Hernan,Jose,Rodolfo,Omar] were very nice and helpful.The cars are so cool and colorful with open window concept so you can soak in cozumel, you get a driver if you do not know how to drive standard so no worries. We all drove in a line formation to stay together so there is no chance of you getting lost if you will be the driver.Also, I am not a swimmer and we had three kids that could not swim well either so for the snorkel part of the trip, Hernan was kind enough to stay behind with us in the shallow end and show us the marine life there while the others swam towards the deeper area. All snorkel gear and life jackets are provided at no cost and they give you the option to opt out and just relax if you want. This was my first excursion and it was relaxing, fun and a 10/10 would recommend!!
