Does anyone know why the Carnival Ecstasy no longer docks at Calica? Before Hurricane Wilma, the Ecstasy used to stop at Calica. My husband and I love Playa del Carmen. (The Ecstasy leaves from Galveston, Tx.)

If you have any information on this, please tell me what you know.

Is Calica the same as Playa del Carmen? I was looking at some Carnival cruises and saw a gang of them visit Calica. I didn't realize is was the same or close to Playa del Carmen which we also loved. As much as we like Cozumel, I could easily take the water taxi to the mainland and spend the day at Playa del Carmen instead.

Hi Libragirl, Playa del Carmen is very easy to get to from Cozumel. You can buy a ticket on the fast hydrofoil ferry and the ride took 20 minutes. I usually go to Cancun this way. The taxi from Playa del Carmen to Cancun is 45 minutes. Just watch your time.

Thanks, Cleveland and Plano.

We have taken the ferry from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen several times, but the last time we were in Cozumel, they warned us not to because those ferries were being used to tender people back and forth to the cruise ships. They told us we might be able to go to Playa, but that we might have trouble getting back to Cozumel in time to get on the ship.

Oh, well, eventually the piers will be rebuilt and we'll have no problem ferrying to Playa del Carmen.
