Circle the island of Cozumel as you drive a Jeep Wrangler on a guided excursion to see some of the best highlights and sights of the island. Enjoy some of the natural wonders, experience an incredible shore snorkel at Punta Sur, relax at a beach resort, and be treated to a tasty lunch.
The meeting point is just a short walk or taxi ride from the cruise piers. Your friendly guide will get you checked in and settled into your 4 people-shared Jeep. If space allows, you may have a fifth person join you if you wish (great for families with a smaller child). If you want the Jeep to yourself, there is also a VIP option. Note that these are island-style vehicles. Please check our other Jeep excursions if you want a more American standard option.
Your English-speaking Jeep cruise excursion guide will go over all of the driving instructions and safety rules before leading the group out caravan style on the paved roads. They will lead you towards the east side of the island also known as the wild side because of its wide-open stretches of white sandy beaches and lack of urban development. The color of the Caribbean water on the east side seems to be a crayon box of blues and greens! Do not forget your camera on this excursion as there will be plenty of photo ops.
The Cozumel Jeep shore excursion group will stop at the southernmost tip of the island, Punta Sur National Park. This is a beautiful preserve that holds a key to the coral reef's survival. Colombia Lagoon inside the park supplies vital nutrients to the reefs with the mangroves and the tidal flow.
Punta Sur has many other points of interest including the famous colony of American crocodiles - you can view them safely from the viewing platform over the lagoon. The guide will also give you a short history lesson about the Mayans and show you El Caracol, an ancient early hurricane warning device they built.
You will have the opportunity to climb to the top of the lighthouse for a stunning view. Take a deep breath, there are 142 steps to the top! There is a small marine museum adjacent as well.
The guide will then lead your group further into the park to the beach area. Here, they will pass out your snorkel gear (it is all provided) and show you how to use it all before taking you on a guided snorkel of the reef. The reef is located just off the beach and is very shallow. You will get to view some outstanding marine life, tropical fish, and numerous fan coral. You may also choose not to snorkel and just stay on the beach to relax.
After the snorkel, you will leave Punta Sur and continue around the island to a beach restaurant. A Mexican-style lunch will be served that includes your choice of 1 beef, chicken, or fish fajitas, quesadillas, or regular nachos. If you wish, you can purchase additional food or drinks at your own expense. There is even a stop for a tequila tasting! The excursion continues through town and ends back at the meeting point. You will have the option to spend time at the beach resort at no extra charge.
Note: If your ship arrives on a Sunday, Punta Sur may not be open. Snorkeling will be substituted at Sky Reef. You may also have an additional stop at El Cedral.
