Description

Punta Sur National Park – Light House – Lagoons – Beach Break – Island Tour - Tequila Tasting

Our private Cozumel Jeep Tour is a self-drive experience, that allows you to create or adjust for your own perfect adventure. Let us make your private Jeep Excursion in Cozumel the highlight of your vacation.

Once we pick you up, we show you our suggested Cozumel Jeep Tour itinerary. We head south of Cozumel, to the Punta Sur Eco Park. We follow a panoramic road with stunning views of the sea and the coast. Passing several hotels and rocky beaches, your guide is happy to stop, whenever you like to take a picture. It takes us about thirty minutes to get to the Punta Sur Eco Park.

Cozumel Jeep Tour: Punta Sur Eco Park – Entry fee included

The Punta Sur National Park is one of the most beautiful attractions on Cozumel. It offers an amazing variety of flora and fauna. A dirt road leads into the park. After about ten minutes we stop at a beautiful lagoon. The guide will try to spot crocodiles in the mangrove swamps. From an observation tower you have an excellent view over the lagoon. Look out for various birds and other creatures as your guide explains more about Cozumel wildlife. Sometimes we are lucky and see flamingoes.

Just around the corner is a small Mayan ruin from the 14th century. Your private guide will introduce you to the Mayan history. The next stop on your private jeep tour is a lighthouse. 132 steps to the top - and you enjoy one of the most beautiful views over the southern part of Cozumel. Discover the small museum next to the lighthouse. It has some surprises from the time of the ancient Maya and from the time of the pirates and smugglers on Cozumel.

Our next stop is one of the most beautiful beaches of the whole island. Enjoy your beach break and relax in the sun, have a Mexican meal or swim to the offshore reef to snorkel there (weather permitting). Your private guide will be happy to take you there.

Cozumel Jeep Tour: Cozumel East Side – Wild beaches and undeveloped coast

After leaving the Punta Sur National Park, the Cozumel Jeep Tour takes us along the undeveloped beaches of the East Coast. We enjoy about 12 miles of undisturbed ocean views and stop for photos. The Cozumel east side is so different from the west side. Local people as well as tourists enjoy the freedom of the wild beaches and a fresh breeze. You will enjoy the change of white sand beaches, rock formations, caves and little beach bars. Tell your private guide if you like another stop, you will for sure enjoy Cozumel’s east side.

Cozumel Jeep Tour: Tequila Tour and Tasting

After passing the east side, we offer a Tequila Tour and Tasting. Learn about the Mexican national drink which is made from Blue Agave. Your guide will show you Mexican Tequila traditions and you can try several Margaritas and Tequila. This is a fantastic end of your private Cozumel Jeep Tour. If you would like to skip the Tequila Tour and do something else instead, your guide will be glad to recommend you additional stops.

Jeep Tour Cozumel top with 5 ** !!! **

We found this great address on Tripadvisor and could book very short term and uncomplicated the 5 hours Jeep Tour. Many thanks to Birgit from Leon Tours. The tour was very interesting and with great impressions and a special thanks to our guide Rodrigo. Rodrigo gave interesting explanations for each stop and speaks excellent English. (... is just a great guy too) :-) Ideal was for us at the end of the tour, the delicious Mexican food (.. was inclusive - just great) The special highlight: the Mexican restaurant has a sea access only for guests with a swimming and snorkeling area (super clear water, super refreshing and great fish were seen). It was a great day on Cozumel, Many thanks to the Leon Tours Team and especially to Birgit and Rodrigo !!!

First-class jeep tour on Cozumel

Already in advance we had very nice contact by email with Birgit from the agency. She gave us detailed information about the tour and made sure that we were picked up at the agreed meeting point. Just in time for the agreed time, the guide Ruben welcomed us in a friendly manner. We got our jeep and Ruben drove ahead with the buggy. First we went to the beautiful Punta Sur National Park, we were lucky and could see crocodiles. There was also a small Mayan ruin. Ruben told us a lot about the history. Then we drove to the lighthouse, which you could climb over 335 steps, you were rewarded with a fantastic view. After a short stay in this beautiful place we went to a stunning beach, where we had a delicious Mexican lunch. We stayed for a while and enjoyed the beach and the sea, you can go snorkeling there! Then we went on miles of undeveloped coastline with beautiful nature, where we made one or the other stop. Then we drove back to our meeting point and were able to reach our ship on time. Ruben is a first-class guide, you can tell how his heart and soul live for this island. We got so much detailed information about the island. He always made sure that we are fine as guests and was open to all wishes. Thanks Ruben we spent a wonderful day on Cozumel! Thanks again to Birgit and Ruben

Jeep Tour with Birgit from Leon Tours Cozumel

We had a fantastic day with Birgit on Cozumel. The jeep tour went around the island with stunning views, to a national park where we could see crocodiles and many more animals, then on to a beautiful Caribbean beach with the possibility to swim and snorkel. Here we also received the delicious lunch. On the way we talked a lot about the island and the history of the Mayas. The complete transaction was absolutely trouble-free. Thanks to Birgit for the unforgettable day on Cozumel.

Super jeep tour with Leon Tours on beautiful island

We booked a jeep tour through Leon Tours. I contacted them and received super fast response. Everything went smoothly and the tour was really great. Small group of 8 people, our guide Felipe was great. There are beautiful places of the island, my husband had really fun driving the jeep and the highlight was the snorkeling from the beach. The beach was awesome and the food was delicious, also the beach operators were very nice. The tour was mega fun, it was a pity that the time was over too fast, especially at the beach we would have liked to stay longer. We'll be back and book again next time with Leon Tours, all tours sound good and are sure to be an experience. Thanks for the nice day on Cozumel !!!

Very serious.....

We had booked a jeep tour. Unfortunately our ship could not dock on Cozumel due to the bad weather. Already the next day I had an e-mail from Leon Tours that they would regret that the tour could not take place and the note that the deposit was refunded. Respect! Great transaction!

by Olivia P.

We have already booked the Jeep Tour over the internet and had a very nice contact with Birgit from Leon Tours. She also accompanied us on the beautiful island of Cozumel. We were a small group of 10 people and were allowed to drive the jeeps ourselves. Birgit told us a lot about the history of the island and as one of our jeeps did not want anymore, she immediately provided for replacement. All in all a successful tour. Thank you dear Birgit !!!

The island Cozumel is just amazing. We had a perfect daywith almost no wind and saw so many beatiful Caribbean beaches. Our guide was very patient and explained many traditions of Mexico. Highly recommended.
