Playa del Carmen Activities: AMPHIBIOUS VEHICLES (ATVs)
A jungle tour through the Riviera Maya
Xplor’s amphibious vehicles will take you through two different circuits of 3 miles (5 kilometers) each. Along the way you’ll find hanging bridges, narrow roads, flooded caverns and the spectacular views of the jungle. On board of our John Deere amphibious vehicles you’ll be splashing all the way through the caverns, conquering steep slopes, twisting and turning through the nimble paths. All of which you’ll be able to do as many times as you want. Through this jungle tour, you’ll find an exciting adventure surrounded by nature.
Difference between ATV’s and Amphibious VehiclesWhile amphibious vehicles are also a type of ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) we’ll be separating the categories into the typical quad bikes, and our proper vehicles. ATV in Cancun and Playa del Carmen is a very popular activity. Exploring all terrains is fun and it’s a great way to get a taste of what a jungle tour is. The main difference between an ATV and an amphibious vehicle lies in the capacity and capability. While an ATV is mainly a recreational vehicle, amphibious vehicles are ready for a full-on exploration. Engine and operation equipment are ready to go underwater and come back out without any issues. Besides, ATVs can usually only sit one person at a time, while amphibious vehicles have a capacity for up to two adults and two children. As far as safety goes, roll bars, seats and proper maintenance keep our vehicles are always ready for adventure.
Drivers must be at least 18 years old and show an official ID. Minors can enjoy the ride as passengers, which happens to be as much fun, since the factor of unpredictability is bound to cause some laughter in the bumpy road ahead.
- Two circuits of 3 miles (5 km) each.
- Only explorers 18 years and older can drive.
- Maximum capacity of the vehicle is 2 adults and 2 children.
- A valid I.D. must be presented to enjoy this activity.
- Equipment and safety elements: helmet and John Deere amphibious vehicles.
- The vehicles are equipped to get wet without affecting the operation of the engine.

ATV’s: Get ready for the thrill, the speed, and the fun!
This excursion starts off with a short and informative briefing of the upcoming activities you’ll be enjoying as you progress through this adventure, including safety measures and instructions on how to communicate with your guide while navigating your way through the jungle. You will also receive all the required protective equipment for your ATV ride.
Once you are all set up, the time has arrived for you to jump onto your ATV! Staff will assign you to a vehicle depending on whether you opted for a ‘single’ ride or chose to share the adventure with your ATV partner.
Either way you will end up enjoying a mind-blowing journey of 45 min of varying terrain on this ATV Tour circuit in Playa del Carmen.
Immerse and refresh after the adrenaline rush with a Cenote Swim!
After navigating along rugged paths cutting through the verdant jungle, you will switch gears by exchanging your ATV’s for snorkeling equipment and continue your experience with a completely different type of adventure. You’ll trek into an underground cavern that is part of the largest subterranean river system in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula while living out this ATV Tour in Playa del Carmen.
The topography of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, particularly the lush jungle terrain of the Mexican Caribbean, is home to some of the best-kept secret treasures in the world: incredible sinkhole phenomena known as ‘cenotes.’
Cenotes are picturesque and mystical geological formations that, still to this day, are considered sacred grounds for Mayan rituals and ceremonies. After the dusty trail to reach this hidden pool, a well-deserved and refreshing dip in the crystal-clear waters will have you smiling - and captivated by the natural beauty of this sacred underground cave.
Discovering and swimming in a cenote provides an eerily special opportunity to feel a connection to an ancient civilization!
Swim, snorkel, enjoy and repeat!
Grab your snorkeling equipment to see what lies in the depths of this breathtaking and crystal-clear sinkhole. You’ll uncover spectacular rock formations carved out by millenniums flowing water and get the chance to say hi to the tiny fish that often inhabit these waters. You might even be brave enough to experience a free ‘spa treatment,’ since this species are sometimes called “Doctor fish” because they are known to gently nibble on dead skin cells providing a natural ‘peel’ experience for your feet!
Adrenaline, exploration, fun and relaxation are all part of the experience on this unique ATV Tour in Playa del Carmen! And after your relaxing underground swim, the moment to head back to your hotel or resort has come.
