Head up the northside beach trails on your single or double-riding ATV, which few visitors have had the pleasure of seeing. On this unique Cozumel ATV Excursion, you will have the unique opportunity to visit Xpalbarco, a small Mayan ruin, and explore areas that are most typically unseen. After your ATV riding adventure, there is a complimentary tasty lunch for you at Playa Uvas Beach Club! This Cozumel Wild Side ATV Excursion truly has something for everyone!

Your Cozumel adventure shore excursion day will start when you gather at the meeting point located just a 3 to 5-minute walk from your Cozumel cruise ship terminal. Then hop onboard an air-conditioned taxi for the 20-minute, scenic ride across the island to Mezcalitos Beach on the east side of Cozumel, also known as Cozumel's Wild Side! There are no resorts here, just a few island beach bars dotted here and there along miles of gorgeous undeveloped beaches alongside the vivid blue Caribbean sea.

Once you have arrived at the ATV excursion base camp, your experienced guide will go over instructions and any safety tips for driving on the sandy trails. This is a great adventure cruise excursion for beginners, your ATV guide will show you how to drive! You will be given your helmet and matched with your semi-automatic 250cc Honda and you are off for some thrilling exploration of the sandy trails meshed between the thick jungle and the Caribbean Sea. No worries, this is a guided all-terrain vehicle excursion so you won't miss a thing. Do be prepared to get a little sandy/dirty, but that just means you have had lots of fun! You have the choice if you want to ride solo or double (check the shopping cart below for options and pricing). Kids from 7 to 17 years old can ride along with an adult.

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.

Note: The duration of this shore excursion is variable, with lunch included the excursion lasts 4 hours, without lunch included, the excursion lasts 3 hours and 30 minutes.

Awesome ride, really enjoyed
     5/5  (Visited on October 2022)
We really enjoyed the ride, you first meet in front of Carl Jr's. Just be mindful they show up right before the set time, so there maybe no one when you get there. There's a little ride from the meeting location to where they get on atvs. Overall the atv ride was a lot of fun not many people out there and beautiful beaches. My only 2 negatives were the brakes on the atvs barely worked, which wasn't a huge issue as long as you kept a little distance. Also while the last beach where you stop is amazing, I kinda wish we could of stopped at some of the other beaches as well we passed. Otherwise fast pace and enjoyable. The beach club for lunch was alright. But we left early and were able to go snorkel at the marine park a short distance down the road. We opted against the tequila tour, but that was an option of requested. Bottom line I would do again.

This excursion is amazing! We booked this excursion for our girls cruise. WE HAD A BLAST!! The meeting place was a bit confusing. You need to go out of the gates, down the street, and we met our guide outside of Carls Jr( burger restaurant). Then we walked a few more blocks with our guide to their local location! After everyone gets verified and balances paid, you get in one of their vehicles and drive yourself or your group to the ATV location! One of their guys are guiding the group and will stop to make sure no one is left behind. The ATV ride was incredible! Beautiful! Scenic!! Rocky but not too bad. This was the first time I had ever driven an ATV and it wasn’t to hard! The guide made everyone feel safe and comfortable! The beach was nice but the shore is rocky! The restaurant food was amazing! No complaints! LOVED IT❤️ I will be rebooking with my family next time! Well worth the money!

Victor our guide was Awesome! He was always looking out for our safety. Friendly, knowledgeable, outgoing and easy to get get along with. The ride is not for the faint hearted looking for a slow relaxing day. This tour is full of the unexpected. Some parts of the trail are rocky so expect an adventurous ride. The photographer for this tour also took excellent pics which we purchased and received shortly after the tour ended. The ride itself took us along the beach and to ancient Mayan Ruins. We were also treated to a Tequila tour as an added bonus. Free drinks were provided on our ATV ride to ensure we were hydrated. After the ATV we were driven to a resort where lunch was provided. Lots of activities like snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. Victor then met us again to ensure we got back to our ship on time by driving us back in air conditioned vehicles. Highly recommend this tour for a great time!!

Rough ride but enjoyed it
     5/5  (Visited on November 2019)
The pick up point was easy, drove out of town to where the ATVs were located. Beautiful ride but lots of rocks making it a rough ride and slow if you have little experience on ATVs. Did see one Mayan ruin and a small area of beach you could go on, but not really anything to do but walk looking for conchs. Stopped in for a tequila tasting before leaving back to Cozumel. Gotta try the flavored tequilas. Yummy!

I took this tour with our children and we all had fun. I loved visiting the empty beaches that are only accessible by ATV´s. The drive was easy and we stopped at some small Mayan Ruins then we return to a restaurant and we purchase lunch and drink. Our kids had the opportunity to play on the sand on the beautiful beach of Mezcalitos. When our time was over, we returned to town and have time to explore on our own for souvenirs.

The best part of our trip! The guide was fantastic. There was a member of our group that was a little timid, and instead of slowing everyone else down, they split us up and took the "timid" group to a milder location, while the rest went off for the "wild" tour. As a part of the group that went to the "mild" side, even though it wasn't as "extreme" as it could have been, we had an absolute blast. The "timid" member gained confidence, and by the end of the 3 hour tour through jungle, beach and trails, she was taking hills and splashing through puddles like a pro. Highly recommend this tour to everyone!

We thought our vacation was going to be a bust with the rain (it rained the first 4 days of our 8 day stay) but we were so wrong! The rain made this tour a total blast! We had so much fun riding the ATV through mud and water that at times was so deep we were putting our feet up on the front fenders to try to stay a little dry. The tour guide was informative when we got to the ruins and gave us time to explore around and play on the beach in the mud on the ATVs. The lunch afterward was not at a restaurant but onsite at the Adventour location. It was delicious, maybe the best meal we had while on vacation. The food was more than we could eat and the only complaint we had was that we couldn't eat more or we would bust! We were thrown off a little when we got to the (meeting place) and no one was there to meet us. However, another tour guide called them for us and we learned they were waiting for us behind the (the meeting place) and we were in front. Then, when we reached the tour location, they tried to sell us insurance in case anything happened to the ATV while we were riding, but finally told us it was optional (the advertisement on this website said it was included). All in all this was our favorite tour that we had during our stay.

Wild side rocks!

The ATV ride was a thrill, our guides were friendly and safe. The wild beaches views were spectacular, we enjoyed from the beginning to the end. The only downside is they don't provide bandanas and the road is very sandy and dusty, so bring your own!

Wild beaches are the best of Cozumel!

My family has visited Cozumel for the last 6 or 7 years, but this is the first time we take a tour to the wild side of the island. It was amazing to see the ocean side, the trails are sandy, dusty and muddy, perfect to go wild on the ATV! We definitely are doing this one again!

The staff on this excursion is the best, attentive, safe and funny. We enjoyed the ride, a lot better than driving the ATV in a crowded beach club. The stayed at the beach a little long and enjoyed real Mexican food and cold XX beers. Parts of the road were really dusty so remember to bring closed toes shoes.
