My husband & I will take our 1st cruise in Sept. We dock at Cozumel and am wondering how late the shops stay open? We definately want to get some shopping in while on the island, but am wondering if we should shop first & then head to the beach? Any help would be appreciated.
we like to hit the beach first, in the am before it gets terribly hot, go back to the cruise ship for a quick lunch, shower and a clothes change then go shopping in the afternoon, ending the day with a marquerita at Carlos 'N' Charlies before heading back to the ship.
I just returned from a cruise a few days ago that stopped in Cozumel and the shops actually closed before our ship left. Our ship was scheduled to leave the port at 11pm (it was actually closer to midnight or 1am) and the shops were all closed by 10pm, some by 9pm. We had a tour planned earlier in the day and it lasted longer than scheduled. We had maybe one hour to shop...not enough in Cozumel!
If it helps, Cozumel and our ship were both on the same time, the equivalent of Central Time.
