Greet your guide at the stylish Hotel Cozumel and Resort to begin your adventurous excursion. Climb aboard your technologically advanced buggy with up to three additional passengers, marveling at the impressive modernity of the machine.

Stop at the secluded and sandy beach of El Pescador to enjoy a serene stroll, refreshing swim or energetic game of volleyball.  

Continue your journey towards El Cedral, a historic town in which traditional Matyan culture is still maintained. Admire the quaint and colonial town church before visiting an ancient Mayan ruin and the house of the town’s first 19th century inhabitant. 

Next, immerse yourself in the authentic culture of the region by visiting a local Mayan family’s house. While you eat a delicious snack, learn about the lifestyle, festivities and culinary customs of the indigenous families that reside in the village. 

Jump back onto your buggy and drive to the spectacular seaside resort of Hotel Cozumel. Take a revitalizing dip in the crystal clear water of the Caribbean Sea before indulging in a flavorsome and fulfilling lunch; feast on Mexican specialties like fresh fish tacos, spicy fajitas and tangy salsa, sipping ice-cold soft drinks and purified water as you eat. 

Spend the rest of your trip reclining on inviting beach lounge chairs and sinking your toes into the silky soft sands of the beach. Plunge into the invigorating waters of the pool to enjoy the island’s largest freshwater swimming pool then freshen up in the fabulous changing facilities. Lockers, towels and refreshments are available at your own expense.

Our guides were excellent. The best quality vehicle I have rented in Cozumel. The snorkel was fun. Enjoyed the cultural experience of the Tequila tour, dioramas, art work etc. I have been to Cozumel 5 times and always rented a vehicle and drove around the island on my own. This was much more relaxing because everything was planned for us and all we had to do is follow the leader. Highly recommended.

Omar and Jose were terrific. They were very concerned about our safety which was very important. We got to stop at at beaches and did shopping we would have missed on our trip if we hadn't of taken this tour. The buggies were a blast: you need to know how to drive standard! Thank you for making our honeymoon so memorable.

Loved this excursion. Lot's of fun and saw parts of the island you would not see otherwise. Hernan and his crew were terrific, professional and easy to understand. Only a 5 minute taxi ride from our cruise ship to the resort. Very well planned day, would definitely recommend to anyone. A

Really enjoyed this tour and my Kids said it was the highlight of our cruise. Omar and Ronnie did a great job. I wish we had know that the buffet at the end was not that good as we would have ordered and gladly paid more for the wonderful Chips and Gauc and Pico de gallo at the first stop The Fisherman. Weather was cloudy/windy so we skipped the snorkeling at the end but still felt we got a great value and got to see most of the island GPS said we did over 40 miles of driving. Make sure someone knows how to drive Stick Shift.
