The tour itself was awesome. Saw virtually the entire island. The eco park offered a bit of Mayan history, which Miguel was well versed on and the snorkeling was top flight! Not for the unathletic, so be ready to WORK on the snorkeling. It is totally worth it. Only negative is that none of the seat belts worked in the Jeep. We are an adventurous family, so this was not a huge bother to us, but some may be off put.

We had a good trip but brake lights were not working on most of the vehicles and one dune buggy even broke down on our way back to the ship. Our Jeep was well worn with 131,000 miles on it.

This was a good tour. The lunch provided was good quality. Bring cash for lunch add-ons like alcoholic beverages and guacamole.
Snorkeling wasn't very good. The beach itself was excellent for swimming, and there was fish to see, just not many varieties because the reef was very very small. The beach however was very large with beautiful water and excellent for swimming. Beach was not crowded at all. We loved the beach and wished we could have stayed there all day. The facilities at the beach were great. Food, bar and bathrooms were excellent.
The Jeep we had was old, but still very fun to drive. The tour guides do not give you a whole lot of information before putting you in either a Jeep or a dune buggy. For the Jeep, you need to have someone in your group that can drive a manual transmission.

The only problem was that the water was too rough to snorkel that day and that's what we were really looking forward to but that's no fault of anyone's. The tour guides were incredible, the rain was the only drawback! Loved it!

Really not great. They showed up and then let us know you have to drive. I have no interest in driving in Mexico. Fortunate that others were willing. The stops were a bit boring. Jungle? Not any. Beach was pretty. The stop at the tequila place was boring. The Aztec ruin was a tiny place about the size of a large teepee.

The places we visited were not too bad, but the experience left a bad taste in my mouth as to whether I'll ever use a 3rd party again for an excursion. First, the Jeeps had many issues. There were only two Jeeps used in our tour. Our Jeep ran pretty well, even though speedometer didn't work. The Jeep behind us had to be swapped a few times before we started the tour for reasons I'm not sure of. But that was not what made a poor tour for me. The tour guides car broke down on way back to starting location. The food for the meal was VERY poorly cooked and wasn't very good. The soda cost us a few bucks. Wasn't expecting that as I thought it was included in meal. It was never mentioned until after we were done drinking them. The snorkeling was from shore...and was only done in a sandy, sea grass area. I was VERY disappointed in this tour. I've been on a few excursions and this was easily the worst one I had been on.

I loved Cozumel, the beach was great, but the snorkeling was subpar. It was not a reef. Not much to see underwater. Too much time spend traveling. Did not have a lot of time anywhere. Everything else was good

We had a great guide and a wonderful lunch at a spot the locals frequented.

Overall this was a very boring excursion. The highlight of the trip was lunch, which was good. We visited Punta Sur which consisted of a lighthouse and some local vendors, then proceeded to the snorkeling location. The snorkeling was lackluster, the reef was pretty far out and the visibility was poor.

The tour guide seemed to have bothered by having to give the tour - as if he was called in on his day off. The snorkeling was fine. The jeep tour was boring - sounds good as a title but it was boring.
