This was a super way to get your teens involved in seeing parts of the city they might not of had interest in seeing ie, museums. As well as get excercise during their summer break where they tend to be a bit more of a couch potato than when there in school and have their sports events going on.
The Amazing Race Team Eduardo, Erika and the rest did a wonderful job organizing this event and kept it lively and fun. Made everyone feel like a winner.
DEFINATELY worth the experience!!! Loved everything about this excursion. But remember to bring water it get's hot out there treking 4 miles from clue to clue.

We did this excursion off the Oasis and really enjoyed it, although being the end of August it was very hot and humid.
The organisers running the race were amusing and very helpful in directing us at each checkpoint. As others have mentioned, the museum was very taxing on the mind especially when your doing everything at a fast pace to get ahead of the others.

In the end we came in last but still had a good time, something different to do when in port for the two of us. Alot of the other teams had 6 or more on their teams which really helps when it comes to gathering clues / answers.

This excursion (we booked through carnival) was great fun. We raced with our son and daughter, ages 13. It was quite hot but with one mission in the a/c and a break on the windy water it was bearable. We came in 5th out of 12, ten minutes behind the winners, but the staff said in other races our time could have won. The excursion was short enough that afterwards, we walked back onto the ship, had a delicious lunch, picked up our snorkeling gear, walked off to the taxi stand, and took a cab for $8 for the four of us to go snorkeling for several hours, another great excursion but arranged on our own and much cheaper!
Tip: Even though only one person from your team goes snorkeling for a clue, wear your swimming trunks or bathing suits because then you can take a quick dip in the clear blue water to cool off!

We have a new appreciation for the participants in the real amazing race...it's not as easy as it looks. The staff is great and helpful and the residents were terrific in urging you on and helping give clues. Most of the participants were from a cruise ship but this was fun for us staying in Cozumel too. My only recommendation is don't go in August...very hot. I was the oldest one on the race but still had a great time. Sign up...its a fun alternative to just sitting on a beach

Three generations competed on two teams in this scavenger hunt in Cozumel. It was fun to run into one another as each team deciphered clues. The best is that we learned a lot about Cozumel and saw many sites while having a great time.
