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 had a blast! Got to see so much of the island and enjoy driving the dune buggies. The beach area was beautiful and the Mayan house and tequila tasting was an unexpected bonus. The snorkeling could have been longer and they should allow experienced snorkelers the chance to go out on their own.

This was a fantastic excursion. Very well-planned. We got to see a lot of the coast line on our drive in the buggys. The staff was very helpful. While pressed a bit for time, the excursion gave us a great feeling for what Cozumel had to offer.

This was one of the highlights of our cruise. A quick walk into town and the guys got us into our buggy and we headed off for a leisurely lap of the island. Apart from the beach stops, we visited El Cedral, a traditional Mayan town and sampled a traditional Mayan snack. As well as the culture there were opportunities to shop at the local market plus a stop at the tequila factory. This was followed by a drive to the Skyreef Beach Club for snorkelling and a tasty lunch. The best part, though, was driving the buggy! Great to be driving a standard. Be aware it is a buggy and there are no doors. Our guides were flexible with the day and basically made sure we went where we wanted but still got back to the ship in plenty of time.
