Default Shore Excusion in Cozumel

Like to get any opinions on Shore Excusion in Cozumel. Currently
debating to take ship excursion or venture out on my own ? Any
help would be much appreciated. Ideally, would like to hang out on
nice beach and possibly do a little snorkeling. Oh ya, a little
shopping never hurts

Sorry to show up late.

Rent a car right at the pier, and head to Palancar Beach. Wonderful.

There will be plenty of time for shopping.

Don't know when your going, been there twice, going again in April 2002. We did not rent a car, I feel I"m on vacation, rented a Taxi and driver for 6 hours. He took us all around the Island,stopped at all the tourist sites open to general public, and then took us to some sort of private ones Palancar bear is great. We had the driver take us to a local restaurent called Popeyes. They serve drinks also but also have a problen making anythin sort of exotic. Cost was $10.00 each for bigest Jumbo shrimp I ever seen, along with some Mexican fare. This included one Rum and Coke left restaurent really satisfied. Friends rented a 4 wheel drive to go into interior. Hope this helps= BobAL wrote:

park chakanaab is very pretty, not too crowded and offers mexican beer,snacks, etc. catch a cab for $10 each way, cheaper if you snab fellow passengers. you can snorkel. dive ,or just hang out under a shaded grass umbrella thingy. no pool. showers and lockers. cheap gear rental ($5-$12). also a photographer will take your picture underwater. have fun!

Pat, wont be on same ship we are doing Panama Canal on Regal Empress, last port is Cozumel on April 9. Do you like black coral jewelry? If you do ask any taxi driver to take you to LUIS "CALACA" this is a spot that make black coral jewelry. Make sure you ask for and get a dicount. You can joke with him about the "T" shirt man. The address is 20th BLVdand Juarez ave. Cozumel.Enjoy your cruise. Bob

How is the surf there? Rough or calm. Did you dive? Would you take small children age 3 and 5? Thanks for the information.
