      Cancun Airport to Cozumel transportation?

      Isla Cozumel Feb 8, 2017 at 11:09 PM

      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?

    • Beach in Loreto?

      by vonthiel Online Now Apr 19, 2016 at 11:01 AM

      Hi Virtual Tourist people-
      I'm in Phoenix and thinking about going to Loreto. Are there beaches close to downtown there. Like where one can lay in the sun and swim in the sea? I looked at a bunch of pics on here, saw one of the harbor, another one of a breakwater (rocks) but only saw a couple with a beach. And they didn't look very good. Any help will be deeply appreciated. Thank you.

    • Loreto in late november ?

      by severeeen Online Now Jul 7, 2005 at 11:26 AM

      My fiance and I are going to spend a few days in late november (Thanksgiving holidays) in south baja, and we'res hesitating between Loreto, La paz, and San Jose Del Cabo.We really don't like resorts, and we don't like to be surrounded by throngs of US tourists and loud american discos (we simply hate the spring break atmosphere), but we do like to go out at night and mingle with locals and dance on nortena etc and walk in nice little streets etc... Basically, we're looking for a location with pretty sandy beaches/ coves, WARM WATER (even in november), NO WAVES, NO WIND... and more local color at night than... American color. How is Loreto area in late november ? Is the city "alive", even though small, or is there nothing to do if the weather is bad ? is the the sea pleasant to swim/ snorkel (without a diving suit) ? How bad can the weather get ? Are the beaches in the area exposed to cold winds ? And can we find lovely sandy beaches without buying a tour to one of the islands (we will rent a car) ? Or should we just go to San Jose del Cabo, to be sure to hahve hot weather/ warm water ? THANK YOU :)
