Default Cozumel in a day

Group of 5, not secure in driving our own vehicle. We hope to use Taxis
Chanakuub (sp) when to do AM or PM, we also want to go into town for shopping and self tour the Catholic Church there as well as the Museum.
Question: Should we do beach first, then back to ship, and then shop?
What hours do shops open/close?
Suggestions, Please.
Also question on Time: If brochure states 7:00 am - 6:00 pm is that Cozumel time or "ship time".
Thanks for everyone's suggestions!

I think you're trying to jam too much in one day. If going to the beach is a frequent thing to do in your lives, why don't you skip it this time? That would free up a block of time.

The times are ships time. We often go to the lagoon first and then return to the ship, clean up and head for town. Understnad that you should not wear shorts into the church, that is considered wrong in that culture. Shopping is great and they shops are open until very late as they do not want to miss selling to the cruisers. <G> Enjoy yourselves as Cozumel is a very safe and fun place to visit.

we usually do the beach in the morning, come back to ship for a quick lunch and change of clothes then head out into town. Cozumel isn't know as a great shopping port., your best deals would be on silver, loose gemstones and mexican vanilla, watch out for the hawker on the streets who try to lure you into the jewlery stores, they are very persistant. It might seem rude, but you just must ignore them, don't even make eye contact and keep walking.
