Default Cozmel...close to ship things to do?

Hi gang,

Trying to save some money and not do any excursions per say.....so, I was wondering if their was anything to do close to the ship in Cozmel. Maybe something within walking distance or a short taxi ride? Does these restrictions make it impossiable to see any Mayan ruins?

Thanks for your help!

We were in Cozumel last week. We did our own excursion to Chankanaad Beach. It was a 10.00 taxi ride and 10.00 each to get in. We also went to town to shop from the beach. Another 10.00 ride. You can take a taxi to one of the free beaches. Still probably cost 10.00 to get to town from pier. We were at the Parta Maya Pier. At this pier there are many shops.

There are ruins on the island but they are not major in scope. No big pyramids , cities or villages. The ruins are of an old religious site and may be a bit disappointing if you are looking for temples etc. They are located on the back side of the island and I would imagine for a family of 4 the best thing to do would be to rent a car, check out the ruins, then go to the beach . There are two places ships dock. One is right in town so you have the shops and bars right there. One is just outside town, the shops at the pier are pretty much as good as the ones in town, or town is a $6 cab ride away.

Hi guys,

Thanks so much...that was exactly waht I was looking for. I really wanted to do the ruins, but it doesn't sound like what I was hoping they would be. So, I'll just save those for another trip and save that money. I'll probably just do the taxi ride into town or go to a free beach. At least I know about what a taxi ride will cost to these places.

Thanks again!
Stingray City/Dunn River Falls./ and shopping in Cozmel here I come!

There are actually two piers that you could dock at depending on what ship you are on. This will vary your taxi cost and also if you dock downtown you will not have to pay for a taxi to the shopping. I suggest Chakanaab park as it has snorkeling, gardens and replica ruins. It is a good way to save money and enjoy the day.

I would wait and do the ruins in another port such as Belize or Costa Maya.
