Come with us on a private jeep shore excursion and experience the highlights of the beautiful island of Cozumel, and have loads of fun while doing so! The best part is that you get to choose what to see and where to go! Explore the Ecological Park of Punta Sur, snorkel at an exclusive beach club or just circle the island? You will pick the itinerary 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.
This excursion begins right outside your cruise ship's terminal in Cozumel. There you will meet with your friendly, English speaking, guide who will then 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 must present a driver's license). You can go along with the suggested itinerary below, or customize your day with your guide. Remember, this is your private guide and jeep for the day!
After you've determined the sights you'd like to see, your bilingual jeep excursion guide will give you a short briefing about "how to drive" around the city along with some security measures. The minimum age to drive is 21 years old and all the driving is on paved roads.
Typically your excursion will have you following the shore excursion guide on the cross-island road (also known as the "transversal"), and will then head south. Discover the best beaches in Cozumel and miles of virgin coastline, while you drive along the undeveloped east coast of Cozumel with its natural white sandy beaches, rocky shore, blowholes and turquoise water. Your Private Cozumel Jeep Excursion guide will show you the best photo ops along the road - don't forget your camera!
Your next destination, if you choose to go, 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 see exotic birds and wild flora everywhere. Next you will 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 sea and island!
Also, as part of the regular Private Jeep Cruise Excursion in Cozumel, you have the opportunity to 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, ideal even for beginner snorkelers to feel comfortable and safe at all times. All necessary snorkel equipment will be provided. You may well spot parrot fish, yellow-ribbon fish, Sargent mayor fish and sea turtles among other local Cozumel marine life. Then 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.
Want to do something completely 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 a fun ATV excursion (available at an additional cost - options to discuss with your guide).
You have the options to customize your excursion with a stop at El Cedral, a 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 and 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.
