We booked this attraction thru Carnival Cruise lines during our trip in July 2010. As a huge fan of the show, this excursion was so close to the real thing! They meet you at the port and give you cell phones for any emergency and help you might need during the race. They take you in taxis to a mall in down town Cozumel where they explain the rules, the maps, and start the race. Unlike the real show, you are not allowed to take a taxi to the locations. All locations are within miles so you go on foot-basically you run! The clues are also very tricky and hard to get. You are sent to a museum, to a couple of monuments, and to a market. Our race started late so we weren't allowed to do the water challenge-where you swim out and get a clue. My daughter, who was 10, and I were the only 2 member team. There were 16 teams-most of them from 3 to 8 people per team. I recommend having a smaller team since its easier to move from one place to another and you don't have to wait for 7 other people. My daughter and I came in 2nd place out of those 16 teams. The other two teams that got 1st and 3rd were teams of 4. So I guess 4 or less is the best for a team. During our race, our cruise towels were lost by the hosts and they replaced my towels by paying for them. That was superb! The race is long and it does take you thru the streets of down town Cozumel. It was the best-it was very hard too! Not easy like we thought it was going to be. If you are a fan of the show, I do recommend it!
