This is a 2-hour ATV riding adventure! Your Cozumel shore excursion guide will lead you across sandy beaches and fun-filled trails all while heading to the Xpalbarco Mayan ruin that you will visit. This area of the island is only accessible to very few as it is strictly a 4-wheel off-road drive area so you are really away from the cruise ship crowds! When you arrive at the unique Mayan ruin there will be a short break to enjoy a cold bottle of water and relax while the ATV excursion guide gives you some background information about the Mayan culture, how significant these ruins were to their civilization, and learn why Cozumel was once a pilgrimage stop for all Mayan women. The goddess of fertility was believed to grant her powers to those who came to Cozumel and the women would paddle across the sea to visit and worship at least once in their lifetime.
Then your group will follow the ATV guide back down the trails to the world-famous Mezcalitos Beach Restaurant. Enjoy the lovely views of the water at this rustic and charming landmark beachside restaurant. Once your ATV adventure comes to an end, you will return to Playa Uvas Beach Club for your snorkel experience! You will have the option to purchase beer, tropical cocktails, and more from the restaurant's bar as well as other items off the menu at your own expense (If you didn't include lunch). You will have 30-40 minutes to explore underwater and marvel at the beautiful marine life of the island!
At the end of this Cozumel Wild Side ATV and Virgin Beaches Excursion, single riders have the option to enjoy a delicious lunch at Playa Uvas Beach Club or just return to your Cozumel cruise ship pier with the guides in the transportation, or choose to stay at Playa Uvas as long as you wish and simply take a taxi back to your ship at your own cost and convenience. (Please note double riders already have the lunch included)
Please take note that a $10.00 USD marine park fee is not included in this excursion and needs to be paid in cash upon arrival.
