cozumel beach day or other?
going on cruise with celebrity june 7th to cozumel. 2 adults & 2 children 9 & 12. one of their excursions is a "private" beach called passion island. is this a good idea? is sitting on a beach worth the
one day in cozumel or should we use the time differently?
any suggestions?

Reece, Do something else, one suggestion is Chankanaab Park. $10. to get in good all day,everything is there. for all information. Oh, it cost about $6.00 for taxi fare. But confirm with your driver. Bob

I SO agree with Bob. We bought the "beach" package on the Grand, turns out we got rained out, but found out about the beach park from one of the MANY taxi drivers and were furious how much we paid, for how little. I was told there's even an aquarium by the beach. On most tours in most ports (other than Jamaica for safety reasons), go your own way. Find out what is good there, and you won't be stuck on an over priced "tour" paying to listen to some guy that may or may not know what he is talking about, following HIS schedule and not being allowed to do much of your own thing. Its not nice feeling like part of a herd on a tour, esp not with kids. Beaches are perfect excursions for kids btw, we always travel with ours, now ages 5 and 3. We did the turtel farm tour last year on the Grand with the kids. They were so restless listening to this idiot talk about the turtles and calling us back if we tried to sneak off to SEE them. When we did get the chance, it was about 10 mins. The kids were facinated and cried leaving them so soon. Go your own way and you will be happier, just take a watch. :)

cozumel is soo easy to get around on your own in. taxi drivers are very friendly and farely cheap. i agree about going to the park, my sister did it on her own and said it was great. i choose to do tulum and then shopped around down town cozumel on my own while my husband was diving. i loved it and felt perfectly safe. we were there until 10pm so i was able to meet up with my husband and go back into downtown with him. we had a wonderful dinner in a streetside cafe. if you are into diving my husband said it was great. he dove with 'dive with martin' which only costed $60 (included equipement) for a 2 tank dive.

have fun!

We also travel with our kids age 3 and 5. Where would you suggest taking them in Cozumel for beach type activities. Leaving in a week.. awesome!
