Cozumel Dune Buggy

Our Cozumel Dune Buggy tour just got even better for cruise ship passengers and you can now be picked up and dropped off right outside your cruise terminal!

Feel the cool Caribbean breeze in your hair as you tour Cozumel driving your very own dune buggy. You'll make a circuit of the island in a convoy led by a guide and snorkel a shallow reef, enjoy time on the beach, see a small Mayan ruin, look for crocodiles, climb an historic lighthouse and learn about tequila.

Your first stop is at a small beach club south of downtown, where you enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean for a beginner's snorkel experience. Certified guides will provide safety tips and instruction before leading you out to see the colorful tropical fish and delightful array of sea life Cozumel has to offer.

You will have leisure time to relax and sunbathe on the beach and enjoy a deliciously tasty Mexican-style lunch including fajitas, rice, beans and tortilla chips at the ocean side restaurant.

Punta Sur

Next you board your Cozumel dune buggy and head off along stunning coastal road to the beautiful Punta Sur Nature Park, an ecological reserve on the island's southernmost tip.

Upon arrival you will visit El Caracol, a Mayan ruin which in the past, remarkably, was used as a weather warning system.


Afterwards, look for crocodiles from an observation tower and discover Colombia Lagoon which feeds and provides balance to the coral reef formations. Before leaving Punta Sur you also get to visit the 20th century lighthouse, which is still operational, with its maritime museum and fantastic views from the top.

East Coast

Next you continue your drive all the way around the island along the famous east coast, known locally as "The Other Side". Enjoy breathtaking views as you look out across white sand beaches, rock formations and the wide open Caribbean Sea.


The last stop on the way back is at the Hacienda Antigua tequila tour where you'll learn how Mexicans turn a spiky plant into their national drink and get to try some amazing margaritas (for the Dune Buggy drivers they're without alcohol!)


Finally, tired and happy you'll finish back at your cruise terminal, hotel or other convenient drop-off point.

Different types of buggies are available, for up to 4 or 5 people. The buggies are stick-shift but the tour is also available in Jeeps with automatic transmission.
