Default Docking at cozumel

Does anyone know where the ship docks in Cozumel? We are taking a tour (not booked with Carnival) that departs from Carlos and Charlies Cantina. Our meeting instructions are saying if we dock at the Puerta Maya or International Pier we need to take a taxi to Carlos and Charlies. Do we have to call for a taxi or will they be waiting at the pier? How much does a taxi ride cost?

These boards are so helpful for a first timer like me.

We sail in 9 days!!!

Generally Carnival ships dock at Puerto Maya or the International Pier. They are pretty much side by side. There is shopping right at both piers. Your will need to wend your way through the shopping, but there will be a taxi line there. I just took a cab last month but I have already forgotten the cost - maybe $7?

Most likely you will be at the dock that is not right in town, but easy enough to grab a taxi and get to your excursion...There should be plenty of taxi's around for the return trip as well.

Looks like a taxi is about $6 (per taxi - not per person), each way:

Yes taxi will be right there. $7 (total) is correct. Enjoy your excursion--I'm guessing it's the "Party Bus Bar tour".

"Party Bus Tour" I don't think so. I don't party that much! It is supposed to be a "Cozumel Jeep and Passion Island Adventure" I hope it is a good time. I am sure we will enjoy it though as this is our first time crusing!

Thanks for all the info!

Hi Sooziebfl

You will almost certainly arrive to the Puerta Maya pier, which belongs to Carnival cruiselines themselves. On busy days Carnival ships sometimes use the Punta Langosta Pier downtown as an alternative, but almost never the International (SSA) Pier.

As already helpfully mentioned, it's very easy to take a taxi from Puerta Maya to Carlos'n Charlies and now costs about $7 or $8 for up to 4 passengers, depending on the driver and your negotiating skills.

If you should happen to arrive to Punta Langosta, then Carlos'n Charlies is right outside.

A word of caution about cruise arrival times: in our experience those websites showing timetables tend to be quite unreliable and are not always clear on whether they mean ship time, or local time.

Carnival cruises that sail out of Florida will be on Florida time, which is 1 hour ahead of Cozumel time.

Carnival cruises out of Texas or Alabama will be on Texas/Alabama time, which is the same as Cozumel time (CST).

(There's actually an extra one hour time difference at the moment as Mexico doesn't put the clocks forward for DST until this Sunday, but that won't affect you.)

We use our experience and local contacts to help our customers work out their arrival time if they ask us when they book tours, so you could ask the people you booked with to do the same.

Or, if you let us know the name of your ship and the date you'll be here we'd be happy to help too...

The Passion Island tour is fantastic by the way, you'll have a great time!

Hope that helps a little!

This is Cozumel
