What You Can Expect

Cozumel Self-Drive Buggy Tour: Snorkeling, Mayan Heritage and Mexican Lunch

Stop to snorkel in Cozumel

Meet your friendly guide at Hotel Cozumel and Resort, and head to a spectacular seaside location – the famous Chankanaab Reef – to enjoy a one-hour guided snorkeling tour. As you explore the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean, discover Cozumel’s colorful marine life and the wonders of this underwater paradise.

Next, hop aboard your brand new buggy with up to three fellow passengers; these last-generation buggies are state-of the art and the only one of their kind on the island! Follow your guide on a caravan-style drive along a scenic road toward El Cedral, Cozumel’s first town, founded in the 1840s. Here, visit an ancient Mayan ruin, the church of El Cedral and the original house of Don Casimiro Cardenas – one of the town’s first inhabitants.

Afterward, head to the home of a local Mayan family for a delicious snack prepared with local ingredients in the traditional way. Learn about the lifestyle of the families who reside in the village, including their cultural traditions and festivities. Then, hop back on your buggy for a drive along Cozumel’s eastern coastline, including a brief stop at El Mirador or Playa San Martin for breathtaking views and plenty of photo opportunities.

Upon return to Hotel Cozumel and Resort, dine on a mouthwatering Mexican lunch including assorted traditional dishes like chicken fajitas, homemade tortillas, fried tacos, sopes and Mexican salsa. Choose from a variety of ice-cold soft drinks and seasonal fruit beverages to accompany your feast.

Enjoy all of the resort facilities, including beach lounge chairs, showers and changing rooms, and the largest freshwater pool on the island. (Lockers, towels and a bar are also available at your own expense.)

We had a great time. It rained and kind of ruined our snorkeling but that was not the tours fault.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2013

The trip was great our guides were amazing and always made it a great time. The food at the end was very disappointing but other than that i wouldn't have asked for more...Make sure that your tour guides get everything; they made the trip all it was!
