I have not done the tours, but have seen them in action while on the island. I suspect that it is worth the money because there is a good amount of off roading available on Cozumel. If you would choose to do off roading rather than beaches, then it would be a good choice for you in Cozumel.

We have been to Cozumel numerous times, we have not participated in the Jeep excursions or the ATV excursions...but what we have done is rented a jeep and did our own thing. You can rent a jeep at the port for around $100.00 for the day, you can't get lost since there is only one road around the island and it brings you right back into town and back to your port. This way you are free to stop at whichever beaches you want, go off road to some of the ruins if you want, and see the backside of the island at your own pace.

We have done the jeep excursions. We had a really good time. You do need to know how to drive a stick though. When we went, about three years ago, there were no automatics. Also bring insect repellent and a good one. There were a lot of bugs around, and they swarmed you if you had to stop for some reason. All-in-all though, it was GREAT!!
(Heed the warnings. This excursion is not for people with bad backs, etc.)
Have fun.

Our whole family did the jeep excursion in Cozumel this past July and it was our favorite of all the excursions we went on. If you like to get off the road and pull out all the rules of driving like we know how you will love this one. My husband is still talking about how the tour guide would call over the radio---yellow(color of jeep your in) don't let the traffic in, cut off that bike or poor old lady in the street. My husband lives to break the rules and this was his dream. We may go back to Cozumel just to do this excursion again in the summer. After a drive through the woods, a look at some crocadiles, and beautiful light house, you still get to get muddy and back on the road. At the end you stop and snorkle. Not the most beautiful place to snorkle however but that wasn't the purpose of this excursion so I will give it to them they did a really good job. I have seen a lot more beautiful snorkling in Cozumel but if you are looking for the craziest time of your life without having to be alcohol induced this is the perfect solution. Try it you'll love it. Have fun....

Monsie,

Just got back from a marvelous cruise on the Conquest on Sunday. The Cozumel stop has been cancelled and probably will be for sevral months. The guy who runs the Internet cafe on the Conquest has a house in Cozumel and showed us sonme photos he took that were not published in the press and it looks like a war zone. My heart goes out to all the people in Cozumel.

We stopped in Playa del Carmen and had a great time. They also have the jeep tour there. I ran into several who did the ATV's as well as the dune buggy type vehicles and all had a good time, however several folks were cut up from falling over on the ATV's. We did the power snorkle which was fun however it took us an HOUR to get to the beach after we arrived at the site. They took us in two terribly old run down trucks through a jungle road that twisted and turned, before getting to the beach. The scenery was terrible because the hurrican ripped off all the leaves on the trees. We did see some beautiful bright blue butterflies though! Luckily our whole group was pretty laid back because it could have gotten ugly! We were in a 9AM tour and didn't get into the water till 11:30 AM.

The power snorkle was fabelous once we got into the water, but then we had to come back down that nasty road. The driver did pick up some speed on way back so it didn't seem like it was that long of a ride returning. We got back to the peir at around 2-2:30PM. Last tender was supposed to be at 4:30PM, so not a lot of time to shop.

Debbi, I am going to post this to the Playa Del Carmen Port Review page if that is OK with you. It is great information and I bet Playa Del Carmen will benefit from Cozumel's plight.
