Cruise ships in Cozumel MexicoTour, drive or taxi

Perhaps the best way to see Cozumel is by motor scooter. When you get off of the ferry prepare to be accosted by the hoards of sales people. These effective mongers offer everything from snorkel trips to mini vans. If you are in a group of four the perfect solution is the timeless convertible VW Bug, normally about $45 for a full day includes one tank of gas, and Insurance. See the Cozumel Directory for rental car companies.

If you are with only one other person, or alone, try one of the many motor scooter rental places. The prices are fixed, $25 for the whole day includes gas and insurance. Make sure you get a new bike with good tires and nothing broken, you never know. Look over the scooter and have the rental agent write down anything that is wrong with it, no matter how small. When you return the scooter you will be charged for even the most minor scratches if they aren't noted on the paperwork. Please, wear the dorky helmet.

Map of San Miguel cozumel mexicoThe island is very small and if you speed you can actually go around it twice on one tank of gas with time to spare. Suggested activities include eating at small ocean side restaurants on the windward side of the island, or snorkeling on the leeward side of the island. Try to get out of town. Cozumel is very expensive and the town of San Miguel is very crowded. If you don't like to drive, hire out a taxi for the day.


A number of ferries make the crossing to Cozumel at regular intervals, times and prices frequently change so confirm before you go. The main ferry line runs almost hourly from Playa del Carmen on the Mexico, Mexico II, and Mexico III boats. There ticket counter is right next to the dock. All passenger ferries arrive at the main dock in Cozumel.

Be sure to check the return times before heading out to explore Cozumel so you don't miss the last boat back. When the wind picks up you aren't in danger on the big boats, but the motion of the boat does make some people seasick. If you are susceptible, be sure to bring motion sickness medication with you, or buy it at the dock.
