When thinking about visiting Mexico it is easy to become mesmerized by the glistening sands and turquoise colors of the sea, as you flick through your travel brochure. However,  there is another lush side of paradise that often goes unnoticed.

We believe it deserves your attention.

The Jungle Buggy Tour


So, what sets our Jungle Buggy Tour apart from the rest?

This tour is different in the sense that it is the perfect blend of adventure, discovery, and a chance to do some good in the world.

  • First off,  you get to explore the dense Mayan Jungle as you drive your own buggy through the fascinating trails. Perfect for petrol heads. It’s guaranteed to fill you with just the right amount of adrenaline for an unforgettable action-packed day.
  •  Secondly, discover what lies beneath in the mystical and magical underwater world, unique to this part of the world.
  • Lastly, open your eyes up to a whole new side of Mexico. Get involved with a local community and provide food to an impoverished neighborhood.

This tour is unique because it gives you the opportunity to become more by giving something back. I promise you it is an experience that will leave a handprint on your heart forever.

For those of you reading this that want to experience something a little different from conventional tours, this is the excursion for you!

What To Expect

Jungle Buggy

The price of this particular tour is as follows:

  • Adults – $76
  • Kids – $58

Roundtrip transportation is provided if your hotel falls within the Playa del Carmen zone. If it doesn’t, don’t worry, transport can be arranged for an extra cost of around $15.

Once you meet with your group (a maximum of 8 buggies) you can choose from a 2-seater or 4-seater buggy (perfect for families) with basic insurance.


From there, it’s time to buckle up and zoom off into the depths of the jungle accompanied by your professional guide.

The buggies are incredibly fun to drive, on and off road.


  • Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty
  • Choose sturdy shoes
  • Although, you may feel like a complete nerd, be sure to wear the bandana and eye masks (as the roads can be quite dusty)

The Underground Cenote In The Middle Of The Jungle


Once you have explored the many jungle trails of the forest you will arrive at a truly stunning location. Prepare to be blown away as you venture into depths of the underwater world.

If you are unsure about what a cenote is, be sure to check out our blog here.  They are truly fascinating!

I don’t want to give too much away because it really is a real treat to behold. This particular cenote is a network of caverns. You can either swim or walk through them while marveling at the underwater caves submerged in water.

The crystal-clear waters make for an incredible snorkeling experience. All helmets and snorkeling gear is provided. 



  • Water shoes are provided as the terrain is quite rocky in parts, but if you prefer to bring your own, feel free to do so.
  • Bring extra snacks in case you get hungry after swimming.

A Trip To A ‘Typical’ Mayan Village

Jungle Buggy


Patrick, the man behind this wonderful tour, is extremely passionate about helping others and doing his bit for society.

After drying off from the cenote you will continue your trip through the jungle before arriving at a typical village to witness what Mayan family life is REALLY like.

This is a real eye-opener and makes you super grateful for all the blessings you have in your own life.

Just before you enter the heart of the village you stop off at a market. Here you have the option to purchase bags of food for families in the village.

Each bag consists of a mix of rice, pasta, crackers, fruit, and milk. The cost of each is around $5 dollars but is enough food for a family to survive on for a few days.


Places often considered paradise often have to sides to the coins, they aren’t always sublime beaches and 5-star hotels, that’s for sure.

Although it is heartbreaking to see families with so little, or children who don’t have the opportunities to go to school, you will be overwhelmed by their kindness. You can see in their faces just how truly grateful they are for your visit.

To say thank you for sharing food with the entire village, the children made us all bracelet and came round one by one to offer a choice to us before fastening them on our wrists.

Even long after you return home and your trip has ended, I can guarantee you’ll never forget the look on their faces. You won’t forget them, and they certainly won’t forget you.

I hope you find them helpful.
