Goes to a private island, Passion Island. All reviews I read on Trip Advisor.com were tops; highly recommended. On RC excursion list.

We have done this excursion two times. If you really want to relax and have a great beach with no hassles, this is a wonderful place. The buffet is good and the drinks are included. You will want to stay on this island the rest of your days. If I can answer any specific questions, let me know.

You are welcome. There are a few shops on the island, but you will be brought back right by the pier where there are many shops. The bus ride out to the place is informative and entertaining. You get to a small boat dock and are transported out to the island.
White sand, clear wonderful water and very little noise.
It is like being on the set of LOST.
Have a good time.

the Cozumel PowerBoat Tour takes you just near Passion Island to a real secluded Beach with no other people at the same beach...this is the only tour that takes you to a totally secluded beach and back to a private beach club...good luck..

We went to passion island - it was absolutely wonderful. quiet, relaxing and just down right enjoyable. No crowds, ok buffet, open bar, hammocks, resting, crystal white sand and blue water. Great day!

There are a few vendors on the island. They have an area set up near the buffett. Don't worry about missing out on shopping though because with Carnival's pier reopened there is plenty of time to shop after the excursion.

It is not a couples only island. Lots of folks go there on their own.
