Cozumel Jeep and Isla Pasion Adventure
Isla Passion it is without a doubt, the perfect spot to spend a beautiful day in the Mexican Caribbean. This Cozumel adventure will take you on an off-road jeep ride where you can escape to the secluded beauty of a gorgeous and private tropical island on your Cozumel port tour.
Start your adventure with a Jeep tour for approximately 40 minutes as your caravan is guided through the town of San Miguel. Your route passes by the replica of the goddess I'xchel Castle and then continues throughout the northern part of the island, where you will shake, rattle, and bump along unpaved roads leading to Bahia Ciega. There you will catch a boat to cross to the island.
Your small open-air long boat ride will take 20 minutes for the crossing to Passion Island (the boats accommodate approximately 15 guests each). Once on Passion Island you will find palm trees, hammocks, lounge beds, water trampolines, kids club, beach bar, Palapa Restaurant, showers, dressing rooms, and restrooms. Enjoy approximately 3 and a half hours of free time to unwind on one of Cozumel's most beautiful beaches.
A hostess will welcome you and provide information about the facilities and what it is included. A delicious beach buffet and open bar of select beers, cocktails including margaritas, tequila sunrises, and rum punch, soda, and water enhance your day in paradise. A cash bar is also available with premium spirits and blender drinks. Beach activities are offered throughout the day and snorkel equipment, boogie boards, and aqua-cycles can be rented from the gift shop. In addition, massages can be purchased right on the beach.
Kayaking is also available to you, but the activity is optional. Kayaking is conducted in the gap between the mangroves and all guests are provided with information on the flora and fauna. The route takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Feel at one with nature while gliding on the calm, shallow, clear water of the hospitable bays bordered by mangroves.
At the end of your time on the island you will take the boat back to mainland, where you will ride in your Jeeps returning to the downtown starting point.
Please Note: This tour operates rain or shine, within safety guidelines. All Jeeps will have four guests and the guide will match small groups with less than 4 people upon arrival. Drivers must be able to drive a stick shift and bring a valid driver's license.

First, the negatives: 1. Finding the contact was difficult. These guys need to find a way to be more visible. A sign or logo company uniform would do the trick. Right now, it's just "Stand by Senor Frog's." 2. There was no Jeep. BUT we got to ride a speed boat, which was an absolute blast! Aside from those two minor points, everything else is positive. This place is great! You get three hours on a private island with white sand and blue ocean, all the really good food you can eat, and all the non-frozen drinks you can drink--and your own waiter keeps those drinks coming (except for beer, which you must get yourself). You have free use of loungers, hammocks (some in the water), and kayaks. You can also spend a little money on frozen drinks, massages, or shopping.
We had a great time on this trip, although the Jeeps were not open-top as shown in picture; and you don't need to operate a manual, either. My 17-year-old son drives manual and was excited to learn that he would be our driver on this trip. He had a fabulous time driving the jeep (in which every warning light was lit on the dash) over the very pot-holed dirt roads. The boat ride, luncheon, drinks, and beach were very nice. A great excursion to start our trip.
First, be sure that you can drive a stick shift! Second, you are renting the Jeep so have your insurance info with you as well. The jeep trip was nice and takes you through a mud trail,but the jeep is closed with A/C so you will be fine. The island is very nice and the service was good. The food was good as were the drinks. The water is fantastic and there are parts of the island that you can go to on the beach to be less crowded. All in all, great excursion and worth the money.
We started this excursion off kind of slow waiting on the rental company to get the jeeps to us. Once we got them and we got started we took off thru the city and then went off road on a drive to meet the boat. The drive over wasn't much but it was something different. The roads were more up and down and not anything I would have needed 4 wheel drive for but it was nice to drive through the edge of the beach and trees. Once we made it to the beach we had a small boat waiting to take us across to the island. Once there we were shown around and our guide told us he would be checking on us from time to time as he helped around the island. There were hammocks in the water, water toys(trampoline, wall to climb), beach chairs, umbrellas, food, drink, volleyball, and games like limbo to play. We relaxed on the beach and we also got massages that were very good and much cheaper than on the boat. The food was good and we really enjoyed it not being too crowded.
Our guide was great. Unfortunately, there was a one hour delay in getting the Jeeps ready but once we had them the off roading was fun and the Passion Island food, drinks and activities were amazing. White sand beaches and plenty of sun and shade to suit your needs. Beautiful water and slides, kayaks and water tricycles to play with in the water. Our guide compensated us for the delay with a purchase of water and snacks to pass the time.
