In Sept. for the first time, Freedom was able to dock, but it was the dock farther away from town, so if you do have to tender, at least you'll end up in town, otherwise its a cab ride down there, but its only 3 miles. Still lots of repair work to be done on the docks there.

Hcat, the answer is not that easy. There are many factors that decide which ship docks, and which tenders. I really think that's up to the cruise line and the Captain based on contracts and arrival times. That said, Cozumel is still in the "process" of recovery from Hurricane Wilma in October 2005.

Donna is right: the International Pier was barely, partially reopened in early September. We were on Freedom OTS with her and were the first ship to dock there since Hurricane Wilma destroyed the majority of the pier. The second pier adjacent to the International Pier was totally destroyed.

According to a story posted Oct 24th: Two cruise ship piers have re-opened and work is under way on the third - Cozumel is still able to receive many cruise ships with ease. Downtown is 100 per cent recovered and better in many ways - new stores, new gardens and new entertainment (but the same old smiles)."

For more info and photos of the recovery of Cozumel, check out this link:
