ATVs were great! It wasn't just trail, it was a bumpy trail with lots of water and mud. Staff on that excursion were a lot of fun, kept advanced riders separate from beginners so nobody felt pressure to go at a certain speed. Had a beach stop for about an hour, but you can also take a free taxi back to the ship at any time. Read Less

We signed up for an ATV adventure and it was not in the pamphlet nor did they tell us ahead of time that we needed Sneakers and Drivers Licenses with us when we arrived. One employee told us it was fine, but another told us 15 min before departure that it was mandatory. Had to run all the way back to the ship to collect our things frantically, returned only for the group to have left without us. Employees were rude when we asked questions and basically told us it wasn't their problem. Highly DO NOT recommend doing excursions with Costa. We did manage to catch another departure for this excursion with another group later on that ALSO had issues with the first departure and were left behind. The excursion itself was great once all sorted out. Costa's organization and employees were just terrible at the port. Read Less

So much fun! Full of mud at the end, shoes were ruined, but so worth it! And the resort with the open bar after, was awesome!

Beautiful buses take you to ATV location. ATVs were fun! Part in jungle and part along ocean. Nice views. Afterwards they drop you at a beach that’s just beautiful with nice sun loungers, both covered or not available, OPEN bar, and reasonably priced food. Water was warm and gorgeous! Favorite stop for me. Shops in that area were fun and not too expensive. Then a taxi ride to ship included. Great time! Read Less

Loved loved the ATV experience but didn’t care too much for the beach time. Beach was over crowded and didn’t like the heckling from the vendors.

My husband I took the ATV Jungle and Beach Break tour. Warning: The onboard shore excursion brochure (unless they have changed the typo) says it is for up to 4 passengers per vehicle. It is not! These are individual ATVs and you must also wear closed footwear. The ride is fun and muddy and bumpy! Also, they cover you with mosquito repellent because you will need it! We ended this tour at a beach club just 5 minutes from the ship with free drinks (plus the most delicious jicama tacos I have ever eaten). But, like in Roatan, they will come by, right up to your beach chair, trying to sell you stuff! Nevertheless, this tour is definitely recommended. Read Less

The ATV portion of the trip was great. Wish they spent some time on the ATV’s to let you look around at the sites. The beach afterward was poor. The whole time you had to dodge people selling items and services.

Best excursion we have ever done. ATV's handled really well even for beginners. Went over rocks, thru the mud and jungle, finished riding along the beach. We were taken to a private beach with drinks included. Went for a swim here and saw thousands of fish. Water was crystal clear down at least 20 feet which was the deepest water I swam in. Read Less

It was awesome! Very challenging but worth it! Got a tour of Costa Maya on the way to the excursion itself and then ATV-ed through pretty much the jungle. Our guides were very friendly and helpful.

Drive 35 miles an hour over rocks. Not much time to see the jungle. It was like a bad roller-coaster ride. These are trails that I would avoid back home and yet I paid for it in Mexico. It was rough, fast, and boring.

This tour was great!! The guides were very friendly, funny, and helpful. The atv's were a little run down, but expected for such high use. They stated by separating the riders by experience. I was up in the first group of experienced rider and my DW was in the back with the beginners. Up front we got to ride at our skill level fast, rough, and dirty. Started out somewhat flat and ended with a high speed run down the highway. Such a blast. Rocks, mud, deep water, and drifiting slides. I had a blast! My DW wishes we would have been up front with me as she was very comfortable with handling the vehicles. WooHoo! The day ended at the beach resort with loungers in the sun and shade, swings at the bar, showers, and open bar. The buffet was extra and expensive but after that day we were starving. The even have a free jet boat ride that will knock your socks off. WOW! Would do again, just take an earlier bus back to get some shopping in. Read Less

Not for the faint of heart. We were flying through the jungle over VERY!!!!!!!! rocky terrain with a ton of dust flying in the air. Wear gloves and bring and bandanna to cover your face. The only negative was for the second half, they took us by bus to a nice beach resort but just dropped us off. We had no direction on what we could do or not do at the resort and you have to watch the clock for the return bus or you'll get left behind. Read Less

This was difficult--not quite for a beginner but it was fun. It is better if you are fit. I am fit and was still sore for a few days after this one.

The ATV's were a blast. These are capable of 70MPH. We crawled through the jungle but in some open flat areas I got some nice Tokyo drifts to kick up the dust for which we were supplied handkerchiefs at the beginning to keep it out of our noses. Then we got to an area of big rocks and had to literally crawl over these. It takes a bit of skill but not much.. After this we popped out on the paved highway (no traffic since no one can afford a car here) where I lit it up to 65MPH blowing the dust from my flapping beach bum buttton up shirt. After wards we kept the hankies and they passed out bottled water. We took a nice modern AC'd bus back to the beach and poked around the shops a bit before going back to the ship. The shopping area was the best of all the ports. There were a lot of venues and a wide variety of souvenirs to be had. I bought some cigars. The guy wanted $55 and I ended up paying $20. My wife haggled for some hand painted NFL clay skulls. Kool! Read Less

When it says activity level is high believe it, you will experience break neck speeds and a very demanding jungle route with a lot of rocks some mud and a lot of dust.
