Description

Excursion on Cozumel: Jeep Tour - Punta Sur Eco Park – Light house – Lagoons – Lonely Cozumel beaches – Tequila Tasting

Our private Cozumel Jeep Tour is a self-driving tour, starting from two participants. You will follow your tour guide in your own vehicle. First we drive our jeeps along the beautiful west coast into the Cozumel Punta Sur National Park. A dirt road leads into the park. We stop at a beautiful lagoon and try to spot crocodiles in the mangrove swamps. From an observation tower you have an excellent view over the lagoon. Just around the corner is a small Mayan ruin from the 14th century. We continue the jeep excursion to the highest lighthouse on Cozumel. From the top we enjoy an excellent view over the south of the island and the Cozumel Punta Sur Eco Park. A small attached museum informs us of the history of the lighthouse and exhibit discoveries from the ancient Maya and Spaniards on Cozumel. At the very end of the "off road" road we find one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. There we can swim to the offshore reef and snorkel (depending on the weather), enjoy a typical Mexican lunch or relax in the beautiful surroundings on the sun beds in the shade. After leaving Punta Sur National Park on Cozumel, the Jeep Tour takes you along the undeveloped beaches of the East Coast. We enjoy the 20 kilometers (12 miles) of undisturbed ocean views before stopping at a tequila museum (optional). The specialized guide from this Tequila museum explains everything you want to know about the Mexican Tequila tradition and we can also taste it before going back downtown.

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!

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 !!!
