Cozumel Jeep and Beach Adventure
Cozumel Jeep & Beach Adventure Excursion
Here's a Cozumel excursion with EVERYTHING: sightseeing, swimming, snorkeling and sampling local Mexican cuisine.
After meeting your tour guide, you will be matched up in groups of four and assigned a manual drive vehicle (Jeep Wrangler or Jeep Patriot - four guests per Jeep) and set out following the lead vehicle. As you drive by Cozumel Town, you will get an insight into the local life.
Your Cozumel tour will continue with a drive around the island on a scenic, paved road full of breathtaking views. Your professional guide will give you interesting information during the different stops, when guests can trade off driving if they choose.
You will access the Punta Sur State Refuge via a long, sandy road, which welcomes you to this unique ecological reserve. You will visit El Caracol, a small ancient Mayan ruin, once used as a weather alarm. You will also see the Columbia Lagoon, a magnificent and incredible ecosystem that feeds and provides balance to the reef formations. Watch for saltwater crocodiles in their natural environment, and visit an observation tower that overlooks the lagoon.
You will then head to the beach to enjoy the year-round crystal-clear waters. Follow the lead vehicle along sand paths to reach Punta Sur Bay, where you will have the option to swim or snorkel. The snorkeling is along the protected and shallow reef, 100 yards off the beach. It is full of colorful tropical fish and incredible sea life. Guests not up to the swim to the reef can walk, swim or just relax on the beach. Don't worry about your belongings, beach lockers are available for $5 US.
After your beach stop, it's back to the Jeeps and a 10-minute drive to visit the Navigation Museum inside the Punta Celarain lighthouse.
You will start the drive back towards town, but your Cozumel Jeep and Beach tour is NOT OVER. You will make a quick stop at an exclusive beach resort to enjoy a delicious late-afternoon Mexican lunch of chicken, beef or fish fajitas! Sodas, beer and mixed drinks are available for purchase. Guests wishing to remain longer may do so and will be responsible for their own transportation back to the pier. Taxi from downtown to the meeting point is approximately $3 US per person.
We enjoyed the tour. The drive was longer then we expected. The guide was great and so was the beach, The food was very good. We did see fish on the snorkeling wish we could have gone farther out to see more.

After selecting your jeep, we all drove around the island following a lead car. The scenery was gorgeous and they even take your picture at a stop near the beach. After driving a while, we arrived at Punta Sur which is a beautiful part of the island. We saw a small Mayan ruin and a huge lagoon with an observation tower. Then we drove to the beach area where we climbed a lighthouse to get awesome views. Our last stop was at a small beach resort that served us a great lunch. You can just relax or do some snorkeling right off the beach there.

Had a great time with Felipe giving us an amazing tour and time snorkeling as well. He tried his best to make it as memorable as possible!
The guides were pleasant and fun to be around. The ride was not easy because of the roads but it was a great experience

This was amazing! My excursion was on a slower day so there was me and my fiance alone in a Jeep with the guide and another couple on another Jeep ahead of us. I'd do it again a million times and recommend Ernesto and Felipe as our guides. We went around the entire island.. the views were amazing. Very relaxing and adventurous at the same time. Make sure you do it!
