Shore Excursions ATV Adventure to Jade Cavern

156 reviews
Make the most of limited time on this ATV adventure tour in Cozumel, a great choice for a shore excursion or for those who want to experience multiple island highlights in a single trip. Alongside your guide, drive your ATV through the jungle and down a series of trails to explore caves that make up the Yucatan’s extensive underwater river system and dive into a freshwater cenote. That leaves just enough time to ride through a coral cave and learn about Maya culture.

The Palancar Reef is the 2nd largest reef in the world after the Great Barrier Reef. It is amazing that this reef is so close to the United States! So you don't have to fly all the way to Australia to see amazing....you can see it right here in North America!

The Beauty of Palancar Reef is indescribable absolutely awe inspiring. The sea life that I saw was absolutely breath taking. The dives was so were so relaxing and easy. I used the Dive House which is a PADI Location at the Sunscape Saber resort. The dives were drift dive.

I have been to the Gulf of Mexico, Dominican Republic, and several other locations, but this reef is May favorite. This trip we saw lobster, stingray, barracuda, nurse sharks, turtles, and a crazy amount of fish. The visibility was over 80 feet. If you go to Cozumel this reef is a must.
