Any Jeep tours where you don't have to share the Jeep with others?

Recommended Posts

's Ok, so my husband and I have all of our ports planned except Cozumel. We tossed around the Plaza tours driver, then thought well we love Jeeps, why not a Jeep tour - offroad, etc. We saw one on RC called the Monster Jeep offroad to ruins and beach, but it says in the details that if you do not pay for 4 passengers you will share the Jeep with others. At $160 each - that's a no. We would really love this though if we didnt have to share the Jeep, I know that sounds dumb but we have done things before where we shared vehicle excursions with others and it did not go well and my husband would not go for that again. Do you all know of any of these types on Cozumel that are private - meaning just at least the Jeep to yourself? 

This will be our 3rd time to Cozumel, we have done Nachi before and another beach house/beach location. Just trying to think of something fun and different.

Might want to check Omar's VW Buggy tour. We booked through Island Marketing and called after booking to ask do a vehicle with only the 2 of us or we would cancel. They were very good to work with and we had an awesome tour. Didn't go off road but saw much of the island. See my TA review.

I agree to go with a private company, rather than the ship and let them know up front you will not be going if you have to share a jeep, most will work with you and may even charge you a little more for the private vehicle but not double and certainly cheaper than cruise line costs

I was wondering the same, hubby doesn't want to share. Does anyone know, can you just rent your own jeep and do your own tour?? Thanks

Yes, you can rent a vehicle for the day..... but there is the thing:

 

You are on a tropical island where it rains alot, the roads are very basic and full of potholes, some are not even paved.  Are you prepared to pay damages for the vehicle?  or miss the ship because you are stuck on other side of island with broken down vehicle and no cell service, or trying to settle and accident with Mexican police?  Or ....  see what I mean?

 

Do a tour, then you can have fun and not have to worry or worse.

 

I love Cozumel, have been going there for week long vacations for 19 yrs.  I know the island well.  Trust me on this. 

 

Just my 2 cents.

http://cozumelcruiseexcursions.net/cozumel-excursions.html  We used this company.  Did the dune buggy, but they have a private Jeep tour also.  You can customize where you want to go, what you want to see.  The guide just sits in the back and tells you directions based on where you want to go and can give you info on the island.

Really? From all the comments I have seen on this tour and answers from the company, they say that you get the entire jeep to yourself and you are following a tour guide in his own jeep in front of you. Did you request the guide to be with you?
