Our ATV tour and off-road trails in Playa del Carmen are our passion but we also love nature!
It makes sense! Our ATV tour takes us out of downtown Playa del Carmen and into the jungle. We were very excited when we discovered a birdsnest. It’s right in the coconut tree right outside of the new Wheelie Trails ATV Adventure office in the Bellavista area in Playa del Carmen. We where even more excited when a little baby bird hatched a few weeks ago!
We figured it was a baby pigeon and kept an eye out for it every day. Watching it grow ever so quickly is quite fun. It’s amazing how fast these little creatures grow up.
We named her Zazil which is Mayan for “sunrise”, “light” or “clarity”. A beautiful local name we think, that honors the Mayan heritage. During our quad excursions our guide loves to explain a bit more about Mayan culture, language and customs. Many people think Mayan culture is extinct like other ancient civilizations. It’s actually still very much alive in the Mayan Riviera and Yucatan peninsual and needs preserving. Something we are all for and want to promote. So, that’s why we called this little pigeon Zazil. Besides ,we think it’s a pretty cool name. 😉
Zazil made her first flight attempts last week. At first carefully going back and forth near by branches and cables. Now she’s able to come down from the tree to get some breadcrumbs (which we left for her) and fly back up…
Soon she’ll be off on her own adventures… Meet Zazil before or after you take our ATV tour here in Playa del Carmen. 😎🕊 She’s one of the many animals you might get to see on your 4WD jungle tour. Spoiler alert: coatis, monkeys, iguanas, and other native animals which live in the jungle… But more about that in another post.
Welcome to Wheelie Trail’s ATV tour! Get away from the tourist crowds in Playa del Carmen. Join our quad excursion and experience this unique off the beaten path adventure in Riviera Maya.
We offer a private quad excursion and an unforgettable visit to a pristine underground Cenote. Our reviews don’t lie: this is the best ATV tour in town!
We offer two types of ATV tour experiences in the Riviera Maya. Both will take you into the local jungle just 10 minutes outside of Playa del Carmen:
ATV Jungle Explorer ATV Jungle & Cenote
Quad excursions rarely come alone. When you look for an off-road tour in Playa del Carmen you’ll soon find that tour companies typically combine them with other activities. For example ziplining, swimming or snorkeling, etc. Beware, there are many companies where you drive your ATV in huge groups and will not be able to drive at your pace.
We are actually the only company in the Mayan Riviera that offers ATV driving as a “stand-alone” activity. So, if you are looking for an excursion that only involves quad driving in the jungle, look no further! The ATV Jungle Explorer is for you.
If you are looking for a combined activity we also offer the ATV Jungle & Cenote tour. You will see the wonders of an amazing local underground cenote and take a refreshing dip before you hop on your quad again.
Which ever option you prefer for your ATV adventure remember that all our tours are guided and private. Our guide will take care of you so you can drive at the pace you are comfortable with. Plus, he shows you the best paths through the jungle to fit your skills. Our quad excursion is a fun activity for advanced drivers and beginners. Families, couples and small groups love the private and personalized experience.
