 Tulum Ruins   [CZ06]

Rating: 9

An all-day adventure to the mainland for a visit to the sacred ruins. Includes a beach visit, drinks, and sandwiches. Note that there is an extra fee if you bring a camcorder. Typical meeting time is 9:15 am. Cruiser reviews are positive: The “boat to Mexico” is “large and comfortable,” though a “little bouncy.” The “fantastic” tour guides are “knowledgeable,” making the ruins “way more interesting than you’d expect.” The “beautiful” beach is “perfect,” but be aware there are “no changing rooms.” Overall, a “worthy” and “fun” excursion.

 Eco-Park & Snorkel   [CZ34]

Take a 35-minute ride in an open-air ATV to Punta Sur Ecological Park at the southernmost point of the island. At the park, you’ll take in its wild beauty, traveling the unpaved roads alongside the sea and through the jungle. Along the way you’ll stop at Columbia Lagoon filled with salt-water crocodiles, a small Mayan temple ruin (“El Caracol”), and the Punta Sur Lighthouse Museum. Be sure to climb the lighthouse tower to take in the magnificent view. After the tour, you’ll have the chance to relax on a white-sand beach—sunbathe, swim, or snorkel! Snorkel equipment is provided, as are beverages. Note that guests must be at least 5 years of age to snorkel. Typical meeting time is 10:45 am. (On Your Own: You could take a taxi for about $50–$60 roundtrip and pay $10/person admission to the park, known locally as Parque Punta Sur, but the Disney excursion is about the same price and more convenient.)

Take a 45-minute ferry ride to the mainland to zipline above the trees, swim or float through stalactite-filled limestone caves, and explore the jungle. This high adventure trip includes 13 ziplines (some with water splash-downs), ATV riding through jungle and cave, plus swim/float cave exploration in 75°(F)/24°(C) water.

Limestone cavern exploration is the focus of this adventure on the Mexican mainland, which includes a 90-minute guided walking and floating cave tour (wet suits provided for the 64°F/18°C water), snack and beverage, and 90 minutes of free time in Playa del Carmen for beach or shopping. Maximum weight is 250 lbs., and participants should be physically fit. Watches, jewelry, and cameras may not be taken into the caverns (complimentary lockers are provided), and it's a good idea to bring a dry change of clothes.

Explore the turquoise waters of Cozumel without being a certified diver! Snuba is a method of underwater swimming in which you use fins, a mask, weights, and a breathing apparatus like that used in scuba diving, but the air tanks remain on the water’s surface. A certified dive master leads your group down to depths of about 15–20 feet to view tropical fish and colorful coral formations. You’ll spend about 25 minutes in the water. Bottled water is included. Guests must fill out a medical questionnaire before participating.

 Dolphin Swim at Dolphinaris - All Inclusive   [CZ38]

Take a brief cab ride to Dolphinaris in downtown Cozumel for your 40-minute session with the dolphins. You'll stand on a platform in 3 feet of water, where you'll learn how dolphins communicate and have a chance to touch, shake "hands," and be kissed by one of these remarkable creatures. Then, you'll move into deeper water for a thrilling belly ride, and finally, put on a swim mask for an underwater view of the cavorting animals. Afterwards, it's time for lunch and drinks (included), and a chance to enjoy the facility's snorkeling lagoon, kayaking, and paddleboarding. Cruisers ages 5-11 must be accompanied by an adult booked on the same excursion. Children under 48" must be held by an adult. Ages 12-17 must be accompanied by an adult on this or the corresponding observer excursion (CZ41, page 301). Must be 10 or older for kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. Lockers can be rented. On your own: http://www.dolphinaris.com/locations/cozumel/.

 Dolphin Kids at Dolphinaris - All Inclusive   [CZ39]

This dolphin experience is tailor-made for the little ones. The water depth for the interaction is reduced to 18" (give or take the tides), and the mandatory, accompanying-in-water adult need only pay for the Observer experience (CZ41, page 301), but it's "look, don't touch" for the grownups. One adult can supervise up to two kids, and should wear swimwear. The 40-minute interaction session includes the chance to pet, hug, and kiss a dolphin (no swim), and like the other Dolphinaris experiences, participants get lunch and beverages and full use of the other facilities (see CZ38, page 301), though kids must be aged 5 or up to snorkel.

 Dolphin Trainer For A Day in Cozumel - All Inclusive   [CZ40]

If a touch and a swim aren't enough, Dolphinaris offers a chance to go behind the scenes and learn how the pros train and care for the dolphins who work (and play) so hard for the public. After the one-hour behind the scenes experience enjoy a drink and a 25-minute break in the snorkel lagoon before returning to the dolphin cove for a 40-minute session equivalent to Dolphin Swim at Dolphinaris - All Inclusive (CZ38, page 301). Includes all other features of that excursion, as well. Participants also get a t-shirt, certificate and two photos. Cruisers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult booked on the same excursion.

This experience is tailor-made for family members who'd prefer to "just watch," or must supervise a younger family member's dolphin experience at Dolphinaris (see other Dolphinaris excursions for supervision requirements). You'll get to watch from afar and take photos from the restaurant and bar area (no cameras in the pool areas). Afterwards, enjoy the snorkel lagoon, go sea kayaking or paddleboarding  (must be age 5 or older to snorkel, age 10 to kayak or paddleboard), and enjoy the included lunch and beverages. Guests must be ambulatory. Stroller accessible. See CZ38, page 301 for more details.

Cruisers rarely have a chance to snorkel three locations in one day, but here you can! You'll have 30 minutes at each prime dive site in Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park. Conditions, as always, determine final choices, but Dzul Ha, Paraiso Bajo, and Paraiso Profundo are all possible. All snorkel gear, a boxed snack, and beverage are included.

 Dolphin Push Pull and Swim   [CZ50]

Dolphin Discovery at Chankanaab National Park  is home to this chance to focus on the "thrills" of dolphin encounters—a dolphin will push while you ride a boogie board, and pull you along while you grasp its pectoral fins. Children under 42" must share the "push" with a parent, and parent and child will experience an alternate encounter, rather than the "pull." The dolphin experience runs 40 minutes. Afterwards, all can enjoy the beach, sea lion show, and archaeological exhibits of the park. Cruisers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult booked on the same excursion. If you just want to watch, book Dolphin Discovery Observer (CZ25, page 298).

Freshwater and salt water meet in the placid limestone coves, inlets, and lagoons of Xel-Ha, an enclosed inlet on the Mexican mainland. Snorkeling and lazy river tubing are the main attractions, but there are zip lines, rope jumps, and the like for the more active in the group. Lunch and beverages are included, at any of the park's restaurants and bars. You'll have four hours at the park, but will spend three hours in transit via ferry and bus. Lockers are included. Sunscreen must be biodegradable. Snorkeling requires a $25 deposit in cash or credit card.

You'll dip and sip your creations with provided quesadillas, taquitos, and chips, and enjoy unlimited lime and strawberry margaritias for ages 21 and up, plus herbal tea and bottled water for all. Afterwards, you'll have about an hour of free time at the resort to enjoy the beach, pool, or snorkel. Towels, lockers, and snorkel gear can be rented.

Talk about a study in contrasts... Reach speeds of up to 55 mph in the Twister powerboat, which makes gut-wrenching high-speed turns and sudden stops, just so you can laze about on a beach for 3.5 hours! Still, getting there is just half the fun, because the 30-minute return trip is a repeat performance. Passion Island, an isolated barrier beach on the north end of Cozumel, offers-up an elaborate buffet featuring grilled chicken and fish, unlimited tropical drinks, organized beach games, paddle boats, kayaks, beach floats, and hammocks. Maximum guest weight 300 lbs., due to the extreme boat ride.

You'll spend about an hour exploring the jungle on a single-rider all-terrain vehicle before moving on to Playa Mia Beach Resort for another 90 minutes of action (or relaxation) and an extensive buffet lunch (soft drinks included). Non-motorized water craft, floating mats, and beach chairs are included (beach umbrellas are not). Maximum weight 365 lbs., closed-toe shoes are required, and bring a change of clothes.

 Cozumel Highlights, Ruins and Discover Mexico Cultural Park   [CZ72]

If you'd rather not immerse yourself in the Caribbean, immerse yourself in Mexican history and culture! You'll spend at least 90 minutes on the bus, stopping first at the ruins of San Gervasio. You'll have a one-hour guided tour of the excavated site before heading to Discover Mexico, which combines a large, outdoor exhibit of scale models of Mexican architectural landmarks with a worthwhile museum highlighting the country's art and culture. Then it's time for a Mexican lunch with soft drinks (alcohol extra) and a bit of shopping before moving down the coast for "dessert" at The Mayan Cacao Company. There, you'll witness a chocolate-making demonstration and enjoy a sample of the beverage.

 Caves, Caverns and Paradise Lagoon   [CZ79]

Travel by ferry to the Mexican mainland for watery explorations. You'll snorkel two cenotes—freshwater-filled limestone basins formed when the roofs of caverns collapse. Then move along for more snorkeling in a rugged coastal lagoon where fresh and saltwater merge in a riot of sea life. You'll have lunch with open bar at the adjoining beach resort, and have time to enjoy the beach. Maximum weight limit 250 lbs., and guests should be reasonably fit and have basic swimming skills. Water shoes are recommended, as is biodegradable insect repellent and sunscreen. You'll spend over 2.5 hours in transit.

 Blue Water Sea Trek Helmet Dive and Snorkel   [CZ85]

Walk the sea bottom while breathing comfortably in a Sea Trek dive helmet. Your adventure takes place just a short walk from the long cruise pier. After a safety briefing you'll slowly descend into 25-foot waters for a half-hour of undersea sightseeing. If the helmet dive just whets your appetite, snorkel gear is also included, for further exploration; or just enjoy the beach. You can also wet your whistle—two drinks are included, too. Lockers are provided, wetsuits are a $10 option. Minimum weight is 80 lbs., maximum is 350 lbs. Though swimming skill aren't required, a medical waiver form is. On your own: http://www.seatrekcozumel.com

 Chichen Itza Mayan Ruins - New World Wonder   [CZ86]

There may be no Mayan ruin more wonderful or famous than Chichen Itza. If this six-square-mile UNESCO World Heritage Site is on your bucket list, how can you resist? The catch is that you'll have a 155-mile drive once you reach the mainland! That's 90 minutes on the ferry to/from Cozumel and five more hours on the bus. Your actual tour time at Chichen Itza is 70 minutes. You'll have wireless headsets during the tour, which we find greatly enhances the guided tour experience. A submarine sandwich lunch and a light snack are provided, as are two bottles of water and a soft drink. The park charges an extra fee for video cameras.

Fans of hands-on craft activities, this is for you! On a terrace overlooking the beach you'll learn about chocolate making, make your own cocoa bar from scratch, and build a papier mâché piñata that will be donated to deserving local school children. The group will also break a piñata, grab the candies that pour forth, and enjoy some chocolate cake (is it someone's birthday?). 15-minute transfer by taxi. Wheelchairs must be standard sized and collapsible, no ECVs.
