Our family of four enjoyed the race but I thought we would learn more about Cozumel's history, Mayan and Mexican cultures. Unlike the "amazing race" show, there are not really physical challenges to complete - more like puzzles that you have to solve to obtain the next clue. Larger teams are at an advantage because they can complete the word puzzles faster and have more people looking for clues. The staff running the race was very helpful, informative and punctual. There is a fair amount of walking/running, and in 85 degree heat, that can be challenging for some. Upon reflection, the cost ($300 for two kids, two adults) seems high given that it is not a tour with a guide, it does not include transportation (you're asked to get yourself to the starting place and find your way back to your hotel/ship), and it pretty much runs on autopilot -- there is only one race route, so now there's not much more for the staff to do but say "go!"

We cruise a lot, so we have done most of the excursions available at this port. The Amazing Race was something different than we had ever done and the entire family loved the experience. We had two teenagers with us and they were completely engaged in every bit of the day. It also showed us different areas of a port city we have been to many times before. I cannot recommend this experience enough!

This was an shore excursion at this Port of call for cruise line. It was not booked through the cruise line. It was booked through their website. We had eight in our family and were split into two teams. On this date there was one other couple. The three representative from the company were Ana, Patty and Martin. They explained the race and how it worked. We felt safe the whole time. What was key is they made sure we did not get lost and if we did we had a phone with us. The fun part was interacting with the locals who seem to have seen this before and were very helpful. Each clue took you to a different select part of the city where it was safe. Yes read the clue... It is like Amazing Race.

Make sure you take sunscreen and hydrate, as it was very warm that day. We made it back to our ship in plenty of time. I would definitely recommend this adventure...

Cozumel was one of our stops being the liberty of the sea. This is a great way to see the inner city and get a good sense of the culture they have to offer. This activity is very well organized and runed well. The two guides we had during this Patty, and Ada were amazing full of energy keeping us pumped during the whole race. Both guides were very informative and willing to offer help when needed. The puzzles and clues were very fun and challenging. I highly recommend doing this adventure if you make a trip there for a fun and exciting way of adventure.

We visited Cozumel while on the Allure of the Seas over New Years 2020 and participated in their Amazing Race.
My wife and I got off ship, were led to a registration point, and taken by taxi to the start location. There were 12 teams consisting of anywhere from 2-6 people.The rules were explained, and each team received a pre-programmed cell phone to use in the event of being lost, or an emergency. We are in our early 60's and were the oldest competitors.
The staff of the race were friendly, helpful and insightful. We were given clues similar to those on the TV show, and all of the locations were within walking distance. When we took too long to find a clue, there was always a staff member to help out.
It was very warm, but was way better than being in Boston in early January!
Although we finished dead last, we had a blast, and saw some sights that we otherwise would have missed, the Plaza was beautiful!
The race ended in a cantina where we were served a beverage of our choice, and a plate of nachos and salsa. There was an award ceremony and then a taxi took us back to the port.
We were told that we had walked 4 miles, yet it didn't feel like that. We would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a little modest adventure without being too strenuous.
There was plenty of time to explore more of Cozumel as the ship left at 7:30 that evening.

We are a family of four with two teens. We did not know quite what to expect, but were huge fans of the show. Our hosts Patty and Martin were high energy and set the bar!! The clues were unique, challenging and did a wonderful job of incorporating the local art and historical aspects of the area. You are supplied with a map and all the tools you will need to be successful. Tennis shoes and team work are a must. It was not a long excursion, about 3 hours total. We were still able to take a taxi to a local beach for about 6 hours for snorkeling, lunch and drinks! If you are looking for something different to do with your group, this is it! Running is not required, but when the other groups are competitive, it is hard not to get pick up the energy and get into the race.

What fun! We were traveling on the Harmony of the Seas (Royal Caribbean) and had a schedule change due to weather conditions in The Bahamas. This opened the opportunity to add The Amazing Cozumel Race tour to our itinerary. My 3-person team had a lot of fun at this well-organized and spirited event. I'd enthusiastically recommend it to anyone looking for a new adventure with a low- to moderate activity level.

The Amazing Cozumel Race is A MUST!!! It combines a lot sights to see in Cozumel into one fun event. You can either walk around the island and passively take in the sights, or you can take part in this race. You see a lot of monuments, murals, and statues that you might have ordinarily missed. Parts of the race take you into different neighborhoods. The guides are immensely helpful,and so are the locals. It is terrifically fun. 10 out 10, two thumbs up, PERFECT. I would strongly recommend it to everyone. Word to the wise; wear a good pair of walking shoes. You'll be clearing a few miles by foot.

My wife and I ran this race as a cruise excursion 11 or 12 years ago before we were even married (and won). It was a story we told all the time. Not that we won but what a great experience it was. The people of Cozumel are so helpful and friendly. Just recently we were able to run it again with our 7 and 9 year olds. Not a single clue was the same and the layout was completely different (we won again).

This experience isn’t just for the competitive. There were older people doing the race who just enjoyed walking and solving puzzles and seeing Cozumel and they had just as much fun as the teams competing to win.

It is so well organized and the staff is so great I hope I get the chance to do it again one day. If you’ve done the race before and think it’s just going to be the same as last time, I asked and they said they change the race up every 8 months or so. Do it again.
