Will be in Cozumel in late August and want to spend the majority of the day hitting the beach and snorkeling. I've been to www.cozumelinsider.com and researched the beaches, etc. but would like information from anyone who has been there. I am trying to decide between Free beaches v. Entry-fee beaches and also considering renting a car and spending some time on the deserted side of the island.
We did the rent a car and go to the other side and it was wonderful!! We did not snorkel so I can't tell you if that would be any good or not but the beaches were beautiful and we practically had them all to ourselves!! We just hopped from one to the next!! I hope this helps. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. We did this 5 years ago so I might have to dig out my pictures and video to refresh the old memory!
