The scooters are very dangerous in the hands of people who have not driven a small wheeled vehicle in years if ever. These 35 mph vehicles are in direct competition with the 100mph taxis. Hit some sand, pull the brakes, hello palm tree. Even if you just drop it it will be very expensive. More fun is a safe ride around the island with a knowledgeable and safe driving local such as is available through firstname.lastname@example.org
. They will pick you up, do the island and show you the best and most interesting parts of Cozumel cheaper than the ship tours or taxis. They also arranged fishing charters for my folks and glass bottom boat snorkel adventure for my inlaws and kids. Great service and always happy to answer questions.
