Default Independent tours - Cozumel

Suggestions please. What independent excursions you have done. Have you used Mr. Sanchez or gone to this beach break. Has anyone done the catamaran sunset trip (we're in Cozumel from 1pm to 10pm know we have to back on the ship by 9pm). What beaches would you be able to take a taxi to in Cozumel for just a few hours.

Also, does anyone know if the times given on the ship itineraries are our united states time or the time we are actually at that port location? I'd love to hear good and bad things. Unfortunately the pirate sunset dinner is out because the ship is being refitted beginning October 17th.

We went to Playa Paraiso Paradise Beach. Cab ride was about $10.00. Great time last summer.

In my opinion Cozumel is the very easiest port of call to do on your own... no tour necessary.

It's easy to rent a car and tour the island, stopping at a number of great beaches. There's only one main road around the island, so difficult to get lost.

It you don't want to drive, there's numerous beaches within a short taxi ride of the pier.

Last trip we took a cab to Paradise Beach. Taxis by the way, are priced per vehicle, not per person. Paradise Beach has nice facilities, and a decent restaurant.
