Look no further! We have the perfect combo adventure for you on the lovely island of Cozumel right here! You will experience the thrill of jungle style dune buggy riding, visit the historical town of El Cedral, check out Punta Sur eco-park, and then relax and enjoy a guided snorkel at an exclusive beach club!
Start your fabulous day by taking a brief and scenic taxi ride to Playa Uvas where you will meet your friendly, English speaking guide. You will be matched to the 2 or 4-seater dune buggy that you will have for the day. Please note, you are welcome to purchase the extra seats if you don't want others joining you in your buggy. Please check the pricing guide. Each driver will need to present a valid driver's license. The guides will show you to your buggy, go over the basics of driving in Cozumel and then you are ready to start your adventure. Note that the buggies are manual transmission so guests must be able to drive stick shift.
If there is someone in your group that would like to do the beach club portion and skip the buggy, please see our Cozumel Playa Uvas All Inclusive and Snorkel Beach Day Pass Excursion.
After you're comfortable with your dune buggy you will then head to the historical town of El Cedral with your guide leading the way. Check out how the locals live when away from the main city of San Miguel. Cedral was the first settlement location on the island and has a small Mayan ruin next to the first Catholic church built.
Then you're off to Punta Sur, which is an eco-park located on the southern tip of the island. With your guide offering suggestions you will have the chance to stop at the more interesting sites inside the park such as the lighthouse, which offers a wonderful view of the island, the small museum for a bit of info, and the fresh water Colombia Lagoon where you might well spot one of the famous large crocodile, or two. You won't want to forget your camera!
Next you will follow your guide along the scenic eastside road to where the pavement ends and the sandy driving begins! This is where the real fun begins, but, no worries, your experienced guides will be available in case you get stuck! You will head down the sandy road about 20 minutes in and then another 20 minutes back, but the off road driving is not over yet! You will then finish your buggy adventure at a gravel pit for some wild fun. Be ready to get dusty, dirty so you'll want to keep that in mind when dressing for the day! Once that excitement ends, your guide will then lead you back to Playa Uvas.
Now that you've seen the natural beauty of Cozumel from above the waters it is time to take a guided snorkel tour over the second largest reef in the world. Playa Uvas is located along a protected marine park so you will be amazed at the multitude of colorful marine life. All the necessary snorkeling gear is included, so you can just relax and enjoy. Your guide will pass out your gear, show you how to use it and then lead you into the water. You might want to bring a waterproof camera to record the amazing world under the surface. Once the guided snorkel is complete (approximately 35 minutes), you will head back to the beach club.
You should be getting hungry about this time, which is a good thing since you will now be served a lunch with your choice of fajitas and sides, accompanied by two non-alcoholic drinks. Afterwards, you can choose to stay at Playa Uvas and continue to enjoy all the amenities such as lounge chairs, a restaurant and fully stocked bar for additional purchases, facilities and shaded areas. When you are ready, you can just take a taxi back to the cruise ship pier at your leisure and expense, or leave a bit sooner and explore more of the island before heading back to your Cozumel cruise ship pier.
Note that the order of stops and activities may vary.
