      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.

      I am not sure if my question I wrote got posted before.
      I am moving to tampico in one month. I like to adventure, hike, bike, swim and play tennis. Most of the people around me in the Northeast think I am crazy to live in a place as unsafe as Tampico. How should I respond to them?

      tampico to aquismon, mexico - sotano de las golondrinas, tamul falls

      by JRiel Online Now Jun 1, 2008 at 4:29 AM

      does anyone have any info on visiting this town/site??? i will be in tampico, mexico for a month and i know aquismon, tamul falls and sotano is close to ciudad valles.

      i can easily catch a bus to ciudad valles but from there, is there any public transportation to aquismon?? how long? how much?? what about accomodations? i am used to tuk-tuks and collectivos if similar modes of transport are cheap options, and camping or hostel like atmospheres are an option too.

      and from aquismon...whats the transport options to sotanos and the tamul falls? again, how much is a reasonable price? i'll have a buddy with me too.

      also i can get by with very basic spanish, and i always pass for a local if i don't open my american accented mouth.

      thanks in advance.

    • billards in Tampico

      by 1aprilpr1 Online Now Nov 18, 2004 at 9:34 PM

      Hi gang! I recently visited Tampico. Absolutely loved it. I'm trying to find out about a billiards bar there. I can't remember the name of it though. I have some pictures for the bar owners son, but of course I lost the address to the bar. I know its a long shot, but I was hoping someone might be able to help me. The bar is not far from Tampico maritime port. If anyone knows anything about any billards bars close to that location and can get me names or numbers. I would be soooo grateful. I'm hoping something will trigger my memory... Thanks, April
