      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.

    • Where to shop?

      by holtrk85 Online Now Sep 20, 2006 at 12:44 PM

      I was recently in Piedras Negras for a day of shopping, eating and drinking. I came home quite disappointed. The Zaragoza Mercado was horrible. Very few true Mexican crafts and a lot of t-shirts. Plus it was empty of customers. For quite a
      while it appeared as if me and the 3 other people I was with were the only people
      there. On top of all that, the prices were outrageous and the vendors didn't seem
      at all receptive to bargaining. Several of the vendors also came across as rude.
      Almost as if they didn't want our business. Very much unlike my past experiences
      in Nuevo Laredo and Nuevo Progresso.

      Went across the street to the Moderno for a couple of beers and a plate of nachos. It
      is very nice, but the lack of windows makes it feel a bit dungeon like. Went further into
      town to eat at the El Rancho Steakhouse. Not bad, but definitely not great. I wish
      I would have stayed at Moderno.

      Lastly, it was Dies y Seis and there was really nothing going on. At least not in the
      Mercado or the plaza that is down the street from the Mercado.

      I can't help but feel that I totally missed the boat. Are there any other places in
      Piedras Negras to shop that would have provided a larger and better variety of items?
      If so where?

      At this point, I would never consider going back to Piedras Negras, nor would I
      recommend it.

      Should I have gone to Acuna instead?????

      PS. The Kickapoo Casino just outside of Eagle Pass is fairly lame. Hold'em poker
      and slots only. No other table games of any type.
