What You Can Expect

Cozumel Shore Excursion: Jeep and Snorkel Adventure

Jeep and Snorkel Adventure

Jump aboard your powerful jeep at Ceiba Beach Resort to begin your exciting shore excursion. Gain insight into local life as you tour the town, appreciating spectacular sights in exotic Cozumel. Listen to your guide’s narration through the high-tech radio devices installed in every jeep. 

Venture down a serene, sandy road to the Punta Sur State Refuge ecological reserve to visit the atmospheric Mayan ruin of El Caracol. Listen as your guide explains the social and spiritual significance of the relic then wander to Columbia Lagoon, at which a surprise awaits. Watch fearsome crocodiles laze languidly in the hot sun before ascending the observation tower for unrivalled views of the lagoon. 

Head to the beach and sink your toes into the soft sands. Watch the sun sparkle on the surface of the ocean as you put on your snorkeling gear and prepare for a swim. Follow your guide as you explore the underwater wonderland, looking out for turtles, lobsters an troves of tropical fish as you explore. If you’d rather recline beneath the cooling shade of a parasol, stay on the beach and enjoy the idyllic ambience. 

Next, jump back into the jeeps and journey to the Navigation Museum within the Punta Celarain lighthouse. Explore the informative exhibitions and climb to the top to enjoy spectacular views of Cozumel’s stunning seaside. Then, travel to a luxurious beach resort to enjoy an authentic Mexican lunch; savor the flavor of spicy fajitas, soft rice, tangy salsas, fresh tortillas and crunchy chips. Recline on a beach chair and refresh in the swimming pool before returning to your original departure point. 

Worry-Free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to Cozumel for your ship's departure. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Our group of 8 truly enjoyed this jam-packed, amazing excursion. Our only suggestion is to be sure to allow for the difference between cruise ship time and local Cozumel time when booking. We ended up racing to the ship at the end of the day with minutes to spare. Had we accounted for the difference in local vs. ship time, we would have selected the earlier offered excursion time slot to allow enough time to shop the local merchants before re-boarding....without the need to sprint to the ship. BTW: The beach lunch was exceptional!

Great tour! A beautiful drive to the park to see the lighthouse. We saw crocodiles, coati mundi and Mayan ruins. Lunch and snorkeling at a beautiful beach followed by stop to see how tequila is made, complete with plenty of samples. We got back to the docks in time for plenty of shopping before boarding our ship. We definitely recommend this one!

This is a great way to see the island! Absolutely loved the jeep tour - although our jeep kept have clutch problems, the guide was able to fix the issue quickly. The snorkeling was good but we didn't see a great deal. It was very tiring as the undercurrent was a little rough on the day we went. The tour finished with a tour of a tequila facility. What a fantastic way to end the day. Be prepared to have some of the best tequila you have ever tasted!

What a great day! We weren't able to snorkel due to sea conditions, but everything else was perfect and our guide was fantastic. Highly recommend!

This was an incredible way to see Cozumel. I have been many times over the past 25 years and this by far was the most memorable. Phillipe was our tour guide and he did a phenomenal job. We had four teenagers with us and they couldn't stop talking about what a great day we had had. Punta Sur was breathtaking. The snorkeling was perfect. Lunch at the end of the day was at a stunning beachside restaurant and was ready for us upon arrival as Phillipe called it in. The jeeps were a lot of fun and in great condition. 5 STARS!!!

Our tour guide, Felipe, on our adventure of snorkeling, he pointed out many exotic sea creatures. The jeep rides were very fun to drive around, and the Mexican lunch was delicious, we had a wonderful time.

The Guide was over the top and extremely attentive. It took a walk and a half but it was worth it. Hardest thing was to get out of the hammock

So much better and less expensive than any excursion the cruise ship offers. It was completely customized to us. Went out to a great reef for snorkeling and it was amazing. Had a great lunch. Stopped for a tequila tasting. This is the way to go. Only reservation is that you have to be able to drive a stick shift.
