Explore the island of Cozumel in a funky, fun and colorful Dune Buggy and discover the islands rich history, culture and the natural beauty of the Chankanaab National Park.
Our Cozumel Buggy Tour with Chankanaab park provides a scenic drive through town along the main waterfront road, past the town square and towards the north part of the island.
Our first stop on our Cozumel Buggy Scenic drive will be the 201st Air Fighter Squadron, a military base that was used in WWII by the United States for oil, equipment, and men.
Our next stop will be a small man-made ruin, which provides another great photo op, and an opportunity for your guides to share some of their knowledge of the Mayan history.
The ancient Maya considered Cozumel a place of pilgrimage where they honored the goddess of fertility Ixchel. Her temple is located in the last stop of the tour, Chankanaab Park.
As we make our way back towards town we will stop at Mexico Lindo for a brief history on the making of tequila and a tasting session for those who wish to partake. You may decide to take some home with you.
Next we will drive into the heart of the island and dine like a local. Our chef will prepare a fresh Mexican style lunch with all the special flavors and salsas of Mexico. If you are a big eater, we will gladly serve you another plate. The food is great and made to order!
After lunch we will head back towards the water and south to the beautiful Chankanaab National Park. If we time it just right we should be able to see the Sea Lion show upon arrival that takes place several times throughout the day.
