Water shoes are always a good idea and take up little or no room in the suit case or in a back pack.

Some beaches can be a bit rocky and you may encounter some coral. They are also great when you wear swim fins.

I always pack them.

Take care,
Mike

I don't have water shoes, but i do have a pair of LL Bean water sandals that get a lot of use on a cruise. They are great for walking on a hot beach, on a rocky beach, exploring rocks and coral, walking around on board etc, they don't weigh hardly anything and i just tuck them into my suitcase.

If you already have then, I'd take them along...If not, best bet is to buy them around home, pretty cheap and more expensive once on the cruise. They do come in handy for almost any kind of water sports...

It's always a good idea to travel with water shoes. Just make sure to bring a ziploc bag to bring them home in, unless you don't mind bringing some sand with you :)

Some of the beach areas in Cozumel can be quite full of coral and/rock. I would suggest you bring some of those rubber water shoes. You can usually get them very cheap at Wal Mart. I usually get a pair for $5 and throw them away at the end of the trip rather than drag a pair of sandy, rocky water shoes home. If you wait to you get there, they are hard to find and much much more expensive.

I take flip flops

Henry,
If you go swimming in the ocean or climbing the Falls in Jamaica, flip flops just won't work, thus the need for water shoes...They are pretty inexpensive and can be found at any of our sports stores..

I cannot swim and my climbing days are over .I wear flip flops on the beach and to stand in the water .

Ok Henry,
You certainly can't swim with flip flops on....They do work in the sand pretty well, I always have them too, good for on the ship, going to the pool, etc.
