      Rent a car or hire a driver?

      We will be in Cozumel for a week in February 2016. We will not be staying at an all-inclusive and want to explore the island as much as possible. We'd love to hear from those who have "been there, done that" regarding renting a car vs hiring a driver.

      Two Families (kids age 15 & 12), coming to Cozumel on MSC Cruise in March. Thinking of doing Thriller Jet Boat Ride. Do you recommend? I believe it is a 15 min cab ride from port. Right? How much would cab ride be? Afterwards thinking of finding a beach. Is Paradise Beach close? Is there another beach you would recommend? Thanks!!!!

    • Renting a car for a week?

      by WanderlustLipstick89 Online Now Feb 4, 2015 at 11:15 AM

      Hi, my family and I are planning to travel to Cozumel for a week long trip. We are looking into transportation options for our stay.

      I understand there are plenty of taxis. However, we plan to make a trip around the Island of Cozumel visiting various sites including sites that are on the other side of the island which requires at least an hour commute or more.

      Many of the tours you can book cost over $100US and we think that renting a car could be a better option for us and save us money. Renting a car would allow us to travel on our own time and pay on our own terms rather then spending hideous amounts just to drive somewhere to get a tour.

      We don't plan to use the car to travel to Chichen Itza or Tulum. We will take tours to those to locations off the island.

      What we would like to know if renting a car is a good idea or not. We have heard it is super dangerous to drive in Cozumel because drivers there show no mercy. We are very nervous about getting into an accident.

      We also have questions regarding car insurance coverage in Mexico since all US policies do not cover out of the country vehicles.

      Please, we need a variety of advice and pros/cons of why or why not.

      We have already visited numerous sites as to why and why not but we are still at a stand still as to whether to depend on a taxi for everything we want to do or make it a do-it-yourself trip on the island.

      For other details that might help to answer our plea for advice, there are 4 of us which taxis may or may not charge per person and the costs will add up.

      Please, any advice from the pros and worldwide travelers!

      a good beach to go to for a few hours from the cruise ship

      by maggiefoss Online Now Jan 26, 2015 at 11:45 PM

      We are coming into Cozumel on a cruise ship. What would be a good beach to go to for the day (we are in port form 8am until 3 pm). we are traveling with our elderly mother, who loves to swim in the ocean. She can't really do a lot of walking around, so we are looking for something that she can enjoy with out tons of walking. Is there a good tour we should do, or would a beach be the best?

    • Is it safe to drink alcohol in Cozumel?

      by AmandaG16 Online Now Sep 3, 2014 at 8:26 AM

      Me and my Husband are traveling to Cozumel in December.
      We heard that drinking any alcohol that is NOT in a closed bottle, to not drink it because it will
      make you really sick.

      If it's not safe to drink mixed drinks, what kind of alcohol do you drink besides beer?

      Is it safe in SR Frogs, and Hard Rock Cafe?
      Would appreciate the info :)

      Hair products for wavy/curly hair?

      by EnolaKrown Online Now Mar 8, 2014 at 10:52 PM

      Hello. I will be visiting Cozumel within the next few months and want to have the right products to keep my curls tamed. When I visited Puerto Rico years back I remember the hair product I used, and that work fine here in Nebraska, felt sticky when used in the different climate. So I was wondering if there was any curly haired people out there that knew a good curl cream/hairspray (anything) that actually helped keep their curls tamed while in Cozumel and didn't get sticky?

      public beaches

      by acloud Online Now Aug 11, 2013 at 10:17 AM

      Cozumel is a stop on our upcoming cruise. We've been there several times and have no desire to take a tour or excursion this time. We just want the kids to play in the sand for a couple of hours. Any public beaches (read "free") near Puerta Maya that can be reached by foot? I've read all about the great all inclusive beaches, the beauties reached by cab, etc., but this time i just need a beach with some sand for the grand babies to dig in and then head back to the ship, not an all day commitment. :) Thanks for your help!

      How do I get my rental car from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel and back again?

      by Nikki65 Online Now Feb 10, 2012 at 1:50 PM

      I am planning a 10 day trip to Cozumel in September. We'd really like to fly into Cancun, see the ruins in Tulum, stay the night on the main land and then, take the ferry to Cozumel the next day. Then, we'd take the ferry back to Playa del Carmen at the end of our visit and drive to Cancun to fly home.

      I want to rent a car at the Cancun airport for the entirety of the trip and return it there at the end. Is this possible? I've been reading rumors that the car ferry doesn't allow rental cars and even if it did the wait times are horrible.

      Would I be better off renting a car from Cancun to Playa del Carmen, an additional car in Cozumel, and then still another car from Playa del Carmen to drive the hour back to the airport? Also, is America Car Rental a good agency?

      Thanks for any help.
