I am a travel writer and was on assignment on Isla Cozumel. I needed an inexpensive jeep for the day to take photos. There are really only 2 budget rental companies on the island. The name brands also rent, but for 200 to 300 or more percent higher. If all you need is a jeep for the day to tour... More

We stumbled upon Ernesto after doing some research regarding scooter pricing. It is across from the Grand Park Royal and he is much cheaper than the other shops. We've been to Cozumel several times and his price was the best. Book online for cheaper rate. Our scooter was very nice and we had no problems renting or returning. He was... More

Took a taxi to Ernesto's from Carnival ship, found the store/restaurant and had to wait about 30 min for them to show up. We ordered food, which was ok, expensive and don't expect a great English convo there with the employees. Bathroom was horrible! Finally he came and there was a 5,000 peco hold put on my card, he showed... More

Made email arrangement for Ernesto's to meet us at the airport upon our arrival. Upon arrival - no jeep, nothing. After 5 phone calls and almost two hours of waiting, someone from Ernesto's met me about 1/3 mile from the airport on a side street where I took delivery of the absolutely worst jeep I've ever been ir. Body rust... More

We rented online through Paypal for security. It was a cheaper rate than what was posted directly through Ernesto's. Once we arrived they didn't have the confirmation info but fortunately we did. We showed them the confirmation on our phone and we still had to put a $300 hold on our credit card for possible damage. Once we returned, after... More

I emailed Ernesto's prior to our arrival and they met us outside the airport. The jeep was really fun. We traveled all over the island from the ruins to the light house and spent 2 separate days on the east side stopping at every little bar and grill. The jeep was not new but it was the Mexican experience. I... More

Jeep probably had 200,000+ miles on it (not sure cause mileage didn't work) and while the gas gauge did work the check something light was on but with the amounts of tape over the gauge I don't really know what it was. Oil warning buzzer came on and I had to add oil. One of the tires was pretty much... More

My family of four rented a jeep from Ernesto's for the day while visiting Cozumel on a cruise from Galveston, Texas. The rate was great, $60.00 per day, with $20.00 additional for insurance. The price was well worth the adventure we had. We were able to tour Cozumel on our own, stop at various beaches, eat lunch on our own,... More

Scariest thing ever, as I was w/my 11 year old! Engine light on. Airbag light on. Gas light on! O! And did I mention NONE OF... More
