Buggy Island Overview and Snorkel

This Cozumel excursion will take you on a fun and entertaining journey around the island. 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.

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. Drive towards El Cedral, the first town founded in Cozumel, as a result of people hiding from the Guerra de Castas (1840's), where you will visit a small but original ancient mayan ruin, the church of El Cedral where the local festivities take place and a brief but interesting tequila making process tour, your guide will provide detailed information and he will answer all your questions about this cultural moment.

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. Afterwards, you'll make a quick stop at San Martin, where you will get to sample some fish ceviche.

After your day of Cozumel 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.

From the beginning to the very end Jose made us feel at ease by driving the buggy ( none of us knew how to drive manual) to taking us snorkeling as well as stopping off for an authentic meal!!! Would definitely recommend this excursion for anyone looking to tour Cozumel! Thank you Jose for an absolutely wonderful time!!!

Lots of fun
March 31, 2022
We had such a great time on this excursion. We were lucky to have Roy Medina as our driver & he explained things as we went along the beautiful island....Tony was also with our group & he was just as wonderful. The only down fall was we didn't have time to eat lunch as we had to be back on the ship by 3:30 & we arrived at our last stop before lunch at 2:50. Roy called ahead & ordered our food & we stopped to pick it up. Thank you for doing that. Would I recommend this excursion? YES!!! Do not forget your sunscreen as the buggies are open air.

Ernie and Pepe were the best hosts
March 17, 2022
We loved this excursion. From the fun of driving and riding in the buggies they took us to a beach to snorkel, another beautiful beach where they served us with fresh Ceviche and nachos. Then on again to Tequila tasting and finally to a restaurant for beef or chicken fajitas. This excursion was such good value for money but the best thing was the hosts. Pepe and Ernie were outstanding and even took us all the way back to our ship when we had to get a taxi in the morning to meet them. I highly recommend this tour.

Best Tour Guide Ever
October 21, 2021
We had Rene as our tour guide. We started with the sting rays (which was not mentioned in the description but was a lot of fun). The snorkeling was not great. It was a roped off area with 5 nurse sharks nestled in one corner, many sting rays and some fish. We then drove to lunch which was also very good. The last stop was a small town with the tequila factory. The tequila was very good but the town itself was a little dicey. It was my wife, our son, daughter and two other girls. We were the only tourists in this very small town and all of the vendors were berating us to come visit their shops. After the tequila tasting, we made a quick exit as we did not feel safe. Rene was absolutely the best tour guide we could ask for. He was very conversational, had a lot of interesting information to share about the tour locations. He was absolutely accommodating and willing to stay as long or as short at the spots as we wanted to.
