Cozumel Jeep Tour Excursion Reviews
We had a great time taking the Jeep excursion, with one exception. The snorkeling portion was not really snorkeling. All the snorkel gear is so old it leaks (mask and snorkel). Every time I took a breath in, I got water, and yes, my snorkel tip was out of the water. The elbow of the snorkel leaked at the connections. They weren't made of one piece. No biggie, we had fun.
Driving for a long time just to stop at an area that sold trinkets. I thought that was a waste. But the area overlooked the ocean it was beautiful. I didn't like the fact that we just drove around only to com back by the ship a little ways to snorkel. We did get to drive with a really nice couple.
Our tour guide, Memo, was very good. He was informative and did the best he could, with the cards that he was dealt. Namely, the previous days weather had left the water too rough to snorkle over the reef (which was the part I was looking forward to) so instead, we snorkled behind a hotel/resort area. Though it was nice, it was no different than if I snorkeled at home (in Florida).
Memo was very accommodating to us wanting to spend more time at the beach (so we didn't go see the crocs).
Jeeps and Tequila tour in Cozumel. Very hot but still fun. Learned everything we needed to know about tequila and then some. Always look for 100% agave on the bottle. If you shake it and it foams, it's not 100% agave. 100% agave does not need extra sugar. Sugar causes the foam. We left the Mayan village and headed to Punta Sur beach. It was beautiful and very peaceful. On a scale of 1-10, I'd say 6. Probably wouldn't do it again.
This was overall a great tour. Lorenzo was our guide - he was very fun and playful. It is was nice being able to see the whole island. You must know this is NOT a pick up at the port! They meet you there but there is brisk walk to get to the location where the jeeps are. probably 1/2 mile. So be prepared to walk. The jeeps are adequate. Our vinyl roof was torn so while we sat in the back seat, our heads were whipped with the torn piece. We held it most of the way. They need to omit the Mayan Replica - it is a joke. You stop along the main road to get out and see a tiny replica of a Mayan temple and learn its history.
The tour was nice but i wouldn't recommend it. 1st - the jeep was in poor condition. 2. they advised us to drive in a way were not comfortable with, with our child in the back. 3. They didn't advise us upfront we would not be able to swim in the ocean and we were suppose to have 90 minutes of beach time. 4. They tried to up sell us tequila at the last location. I will say the lunch they provided was fresh and very delicious.
We rented a jeep with a tour guide, maybe 6 jeeps total. Drove all around the island. It was very entertaining.
Great way to see the island - we shared a jeep with a German couple that spoke little English - and we do not speak German - we smiled a lot at each other but had a great time with them. He drove so we could sit back and enjoy the scenery. We stopped for lunch of frajitas - good but not great.
Best excursion was with Monty and saw the entire island and had a blast. The jeeps initially looked pretty new but VERY BEAT UP… my seat had a "re-covering" on it so looks new then you sit and the springs were gone and there was a hole in the middle like sitting on a toilet and having you butt fall through the hole! LOL I grabbed a beach towel stuffed it in the hole and sat on the seat and all good. I am actually thinking about buying a wrangler now because this beat up junky one was so much fun.
Very bad! Was supposed to be jeep, snorkel and lunch. No snorkel, no lunch, shortened excursion and same price! We complained and got a refund after a lot of hassle.
