Jungle ATV Adventure
Duration: 3 1/4 hours
Tour Code: coz-001
This unique, high-adrenaline ATV adventure tour takes you on a trek through the Cozumel jungle to the ancient holy grounds where local Mayan Indians dwelled over a thousand years ago.
A brief drive from the pier brings you to the jungle Welcome Station where your single-person, 250cc ATV is waiting for you. Following a short safety briefing, you will be outfitted with a helmet and goggles before taking off with your guide for a thrilling journey down narrow, winding jungle paths that have been carved through the lush tropical vegetation. Along your route, you'll no doubt also encounter a variety of local birds and other native creatures, such as the island's colorful iguanas. You will also visit some replicas of important statues and altars from the ancient Mayan civilization and you'll stop by a small Mayan house where you will be given a sample of Mayan food and beverage. Then you'll stop off at a reproduction of a chewing gum extraction camp, also a very important part of the area's culture.
Once back at the Welcome Station, you can shower off before hopping on your transportation and travel back to the pier and your awaiting ship.
