ABOUT THE RACE

Equal parts scavenger hunt, live-action mystery novel, and self-guided tour, Amazing Cozumel Race is like a reality show come to life. Plus, there is no better way for visitors to experience Cozumel. Teams of 2 or more (max 10) meet at a common location and receive the first of a series of devious clues which leads them to the next location and so on. You’ll need your wits, your energy, and your willingness to have fun as you race the clock and your competition in an attempt to be the first team to unlock the codes and cross the finish line. Sign up as a team or as an individual – we’ll place you. Price includes a full day of racing, a brief snorkeling adventure, snacks and beverages, a post race awards ceremony at a local waterfront restaurant with prizes for top finishers, and an afternoon full of surprises.

TESTIMONIALS

An Amazing Time! Amazing! So worth the price! What a great way to see this beautiful island while solving clues and having a blast! Highly recommended!

Frequent Flier 80

The BEST of the BEST! This tour should be offered in all the ports! Great way to visit a port and to learn about its culture and people.

MPH 108

This was by far our most favorite excursion. We got to see parts of Cozumel that tourists wouldn’t normally see. It was fantastic. The Amazing Race crew made it fun and exciting. They were awesome. I highly recommend this.

Cruisn’ Crew

An absolute blast. Highly recommend this for everyone who wants to see more of Cozumel than just the port facilities and likes to be active on your vacation. We had a great time and would do this race again and again!

Florida Flyer2

Favourite experience of the whole Cruise! Highly recommend this excursion. It was so much fun. Incredibly well run and organized. Also it got you seeing parts of Cozumel off the beaten track.

FAQ’S

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE AMAZING COZUMEL RACE?

Amazing Cozumel Race is an interactive, clue-based adventure game. Or, as one recent participant called it, “a scavenger hunt on steroids.” It is the best and most unique way to discover Cozumel.

SO, IT'S LIKE A SCAVENGER HUNT?

Kind of, but not really. The average scavenger hunt has you go from place A to place B while collecting trinkets. And it’s often boring. Amazing Cozumel Race is anything but average, and far from boring. It’s like the “Da Vinci Code,” “The Amazing Race,” and “National Treasure,” rolled in to one package, except instead of watching it, you’re actually living it. It is immersive, challenging, and completely addictive.

SOUNDS COOL, TELL ME MORE.

Amazing Cozumel Race is a competition where teams of two or more start off at a common location, receive the first of a series of cool clues that leads them to a second location where they’ll receive a second clue and so on. But these aren’t your ordinary clues. They’re tricky, sometimes very tricky. Often you won’t even know what they are; the trick may be in actually finding the clue. The team that solves all the clues and crosses the finish line in the least amount of time is the winner.

DON'T YOU MEAN THAT THE TEAM THAT CROSSES THE FINISH LINE FIRST IS THE WINNER?

Not necessarily. As we said, Amazing Cozumel Race is not your average game. Sometimes participants need help. We are happy to provide assistance, but it’s not free. Hints cost a team 5 minutes, outright solutions cost teams 15 minutes. Frequently a team crossing the finish line first has had a number of hints; so that team is not always the winner.

SOUNDS COMPLICATED. I'M JUST HERE FOR A VACATION. I DON'T WANT TO BE IN OVER MY HEAD.

You won’t be. First and foremost, Amazing Cozumel Race is FUN. Yes, it’s a race; you will do some outside-the-box problem solving, and you may find yourself running around. But that is all secondary to the experience. You’ll meet some great people, and you’ll go to places the average tourist will never get to see. You won’t be physically or mentally overwhelmed, and you will enjoy a terrific day.

I'D LIKE TO PLAY, BUT I DON'T HAVE A TEAM.

Absolutely not a problem. We will happily place individuals on teams. Many lasting friendships have come from players assigned to teams.

ARE THERE AGE MINIMUMS/MAXIMUMS, OR OTHER RESTRICTIONS?

We do not have any restrictions. BUT, children under 8 or so, the elderly, and those with limited mobility may find it too challenging.

WHAT DO I WEAR? WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?

You should wear light clothing, and comfortable shoes. You don’t need to be in tip-top physical shape to compete, but the race is mostly on foot, so you have to be prepared to do some walking (or running, depending upon how competitive you are). There’s a brief snorkeling event, but it’s completely optional. Swimmers may wish to wear a bathing suit; all snorkelers will be dry 15 minutes later. We strongly recommend sunscreen, and although we will provide beverages at the mid-point and the finish line, you may wish to bring some bottled water. Other than that, we will provide you with all the tools you will need to prevail at this great game.

WHAT IF I DON'T WANT TO DO ONE OR MORE OF THE CHALLENGES?

Although we encourage full participation in all of the challenges and clues, you may find that you do not want to do one. The snorkeling, for instance. That is perfectly fine. Either a teammate can do it on your behalf, or you can utilize our workaround.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I GET LOST OR CONFUSED?

All teams will be provided with a cell phone that has a direct link to Amazing Cozumel Race “mission control.” If you need help with a clue and/or get lost, you can call mission control. But you need not fear getting lost. While we pride ourselves on taking guests off the beaten path, Cozumel is pretty small, and our race covers an area one can easily walk in one day; so you shouldn’t find yourself too far astray. Nonetheless, if you do wander off course, we will gently guide you back.

WE'RE A TEAM OF TWO. DOES THAT PUT US AN ADVANTAGE, OR A DISADVANTAGE OVER OTHER TEAMS?

The most successful teams have a variety of skills and are able to work together. We’ve had winning teams of two, and winning teams of ten. Team size doesn’t matter.

WHAT DO I GET IF I WIN?

Typically the winning team receives medals and bragging rights. Second and third place teams get prizes and a sense of pride. Occasionally our sponsors feel very generous and make the prizes even more lavish. But you can always count on the medals. All teams, regardless of where they finish, enjoy a completely unique experience, some really cool and unusual Cozumel attractions, and the post-game awards party. We provide free chips and salsa as well as soft drinks or beer at the party, plus a chance to enjoy a terrific authentic Mexican fiesta, and the opportunity for you to relive the awesome experience you’ve just shared with your fellow Amazing Cozumel Race participants.

WHAT HAPPENS ONCE I'VE SIGNED UP?

All players will be met at a designated spot by an Amazing Cozumel Race operative. There teams finalize the registration process, and receive their cell phone, team badges, and a brief explanation of the specific race. All teams will then be given their first clue and begin their unforgettable experience in Cozumel.

AWESOME, I'M IN! WHERE DO I SIGN UP?
