      Thinking of going to Cancun with my boyfriend in March. How is it there? Is there a lot of college spring breakers? How safe is it? Any advice would be great! And let me know of any good excursions to try. Thank you! :)

      Cancun Airport to Cozumel transportation?

      Isla Cozumel Feb 8, 2017 at 11:09 PM

      Hi.
      Got a free flight to Cancun, booked it and realized that I really want to be in Cozumel! Now I have a hotel booked in Cozumel (Iberostar) and need to figure out how to get there and back.
      I see a flight with r.t. for only $150, but the times are real bad and I hope to get something that fits my flights in/out of Cancun. Cheaper would be nice if possible.

      Any busses that do the whole thing? What are the ferry routes? I guess I can just taxi to the ferry ports.

      Thanks. And I hope this hits someone before the site closes. Very sad about that too! Anyone know why VT is closing?

      Richard.

    • Flying in late, then what?

      by bike10 Online Now Aug 20, 2007 at 9:37 AM

      We are flying into San Jose late at night. We don't want to rent a car and drive from San Jose to Querpos late at night. I know we can use the bus system or plane the next morning. Can we just stay in the terminal for the night?

      by GillianWhirled Online Now Apr 25, 2006 at 11:44 PM

      Can someone tell me some lodging options for a stay in Costa Rica? From what I have read I would like to stay on the Carribean side, but any information about accomodations would be helpful...

      My girlfriend and I are staying in San Jose for several nights in between trips to the shore:
      We want to be near downtown / La Sabana area but want a nice pleasant place. A resort is not required since we will be staying at one at the shore.
      Has anyone stayed at the following two hotel options? Or do you have any other recommendations?
      - Barcelo San Jose Palacio
      - Tryp Corobici
