We'd like to invite you to join us on this Private Jeep Shore Excursion in Cozumel. This is one of the best ways to see the highlights of this lovely, tropical island! You get to choose what to see and where to go, which makes this excursion unique! Decide if you'd like to explore the Ecological Park of Punta Sur, snorkel at an exclusive beach club or maybe just circle the island? You pick the itinerary when you first meet with your guide and then follow your private guide while driving your own 4x4 Jeep Wrangler Convertible.
Note: There is a minimum of 3 adults needed for your private excursion or a combination of 4 (adults and children). If there are only 2 in your party, a third space will need to be paid for the minimum.
Your day in Cozumel begins right outside your cruise ship's terminal. That is where your friendly private Jeep shore excursion guide will greet you and take you to your Jeep Wrangler vehicle (Jeeps will be standard stick shift unless you request automatic - use the comment box on your order form, all drivers need to present a driver's license). You can suggest your own itinerary from the many available sights with your guide. Remember, this is your private guide and jeep for the day!
After a fun talk about the many available highlights, go ahead and set the plan, and then your bilingual jeep excursion guide will give you a short briefing about "how to drive" around the city and some security measures. Please note that the minimum age to drive is 21 years old. The driving is on paved roads.
Typically a Jeep excursion will have you following the shore excursion guide on the cross-island road (also known as "transversal"), and then head south. Go to the wild side of Cozumel and discover the best beaches and miles of virgin coastline. This side remains undeveloped so you'll have the opportunity to see the island as it has been for centuries. Although there are the occasional beach clubs (that you can choose to stop at), there are no resorts and most areas remain completely free of crowds, many times there won't be a single person in sight. Your Private Cozumel Jeep Excursion guide will show you the best picture spots along the road - don't forget your camera!
A favored next destination is the famous Punta Sur Eco Park, the largest national ecological reserve in Cozumel. The first stop inside the park is to watch the crocodiles in their natural habitat from a safe lookout tower. You can also spot exotic birds and wild flora everywhere. Next you can visit the Caracol Mayan ruin, a small construction that despite of its size was an important development of the Mayan civilization and served as a weather station. Don't forget to climb the historic Celarain Lighthouse and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of the Mexican Caribbean!
Included in your Private Jeep Cruise Excursion in Cozumel, is a stop for a 45 minute guided snorkel at Punta Sur (keep in mind, you can chose the itinerary and activities during this private shore excursion). The reef is shallow and easy to access, and is ideal even for beginners! All necessary snorkel equipment will be provided. You may spot parrot fish, yellow-ribbon fish, even a lobster, or two! The world under the surface is vast and diverse. Afterwards, lunch will be served at the beach restaurant, Papitos. Enjoy your delicious choices of fajitas, tacos or quesadillas - chicken, beef or fish. Drinks may be purchased at an additional charge during lunch.
Then, would you like to do something different? Try an informative visit to the Chocolate Factory or maybe a stop at Ocean Beach Club (no extra entrance cost for either). Or maybe switch out the visit to Punta Sur for a walk through San Gervasio Mayan Ruins, a relaxing horseback ride and fun ATV excursion (available at an additional cost - options to discuss with your guide).
You will also have the options to customize your excursion with a stop at El Cedral, a lovely town in the middle of the island, or you may even drive around downtown San Miguel and take pictures of the beautiful monuments, churches and fountains of the city or stop for some shopping. Your Jeep shore excursion ends when your guide takes you back to the meeting point from where it is just a short walk back to your cruise ship after a day full of fun, memories and gorgeous landscapes.
Traveling with little ones? No worries...infants under the age of 3 ride free! Car seats are also available at no extra cost (first come, first serve - 2 available).
Note that the snorkel and lunch spot may be changed to the west side depending on weather and water conditions.
