Day Trip to Cozumel


#1

Hoping someone can helpout here. The vacation wife has decided that on our trip to Playa Del Carmen in February that she wants to go to Cozumel for a day. I know where the PDC Ferry is, but am wondering if there is anything in walking distance from the Cozumel Ferry to do or if we’d need to book a tour of some sort.

I’m open for ideas. If a taxi is needed, that’s cool just looking for ideas to do in Cozumel (I know to avoid shopping as it’s the same stuff as PDC but more expensive - at least that’s what I’ve been told).

Thanks!

There are a few things in walking distance from the ferry, but mostly shopping. There are also places that only sell Tequila and other booze that allow taste testing :wink:

If you book a tour, you will have to go where the tour goes. When you get off the ferry, there will be lots of people selling tours. You might be able to get a really good deal.

If you do want to book a tour, you can book what is called the Island Tour. It might include the Tequila Factory. I would go to the Tequila Factory for sure. You can do taste testing and you can also buy their tequila. I don’t think you can buy theirs in stores. We’ve done the factory tour twice and I would go again.

You can always grab a cab and have them do a tour of the island. When we were in Coz last November we had our bell boy arrange a taxi for us. We requested one with a larger car and someone that could speak good english. It was very reasonable. The driver showed up with a three seater van that had excellent A/C.

You might want to ask this question on the TA Cozumel forum (more traffic over there).
