Default taxi in cozumel

I've read on a few sites that taxi drivers in mexico may be dishonest in assessing fares. Does anyone have experience in this arena? We will be on the NCL Pearl and want to go to Chackanaab to snorkel. We can't do the Palanceer reef cause I can't swim (taking life jacket). I think the cruise line goes to chackanaab for the dolphin trips. I wonder if we could take along on the transport? Any advice, suggestions would be much appreciated.

That should run you about $6 or so...maybe $10. Not much. The cruiseline probably offers a variety of things at that park, when I was there doing a Sea Trek excursion I saw all kinds of cruisers there. Chankanabb is really nice, I enjoyed my time spent there.

Check out what the cruiseline offers there and then google "chankanabb" to take you to their website directly to see what they can offer you. You can also google "cozumel excursions" and get quite a few options too.

If Im not mistaken, I believe they have the prices of the cab fare posted at the cab stand to the various places.

Its very easy to get a cab there and then purchase any activity you want to do at the gate. I highly doubt they would let you go with a group doing an excursion through the ship, on the bus...just get a cab, they do have the price posted right there. There are also plenty of cabs to take you back to the pier or into town if you want to do some shopping.

Taxis in Cozumel are usually OK. Ask the driver for the price before you get in. Remember the price is for the cab not per person. 8)
