Great pics. That looks like fun.
Do you remember how much they rent those little boats for, and how fast can they go? Looks like you had a good group of folks to rent a number of them.

What else is there to do in Cozumel for those of us who don't scuba dive?

Doc......this was the excursion I booked when we stopped from a cruise.

http://www.royalcaribbean.com/shoreE...estinationCode=

The boats only ran 25 - 30 but we ran the heck out of them and even tho you played follow the leader..... they took you out several miles, full tilt boogie into some pretty good waves for the size of the boats. I believe you can book them direct when they are not filled by the cruise passengers and save a few bucks.

I would do it again.....good time.

let me know if you have any other questions

You can rent a car or motorcycle and drive around the whole island. Find a secluded spot along the beach somewhere and chill out. There is the San Gervasio riuns in the middle of the island too - I didn't hit that. Lots of stuff to do in the town square or whatever it's called. Just do your shopping when the cruise ships aren't there. Don't forget to hit the Greenhouse cigar bar. Lotsa cute babes there too. We met a guy that ran a bar on the other side of the island (no electric there) and he gave us his phone # to go hang with him at his house the next day. Nice folks.

You can also hop on a ferry and go across to the mainland to Playa del Carmen. Then go north to cancun or south to the Mayan ruins which is extremely cool!

I don't know how safe the island is to roam freely now days tho.

Thanks Cowboy. That was Royal Caribbean's 'Grandeur of the Seas'.

That cruise was last March.


We were there again this last December but I have yet to unload the camera


JPR has the right idea of going below the water with scuba to explore some beautiful scenery. If people are not divers but can get in the water and are able to float..... simple snorkeling is a real trip. There are inexpensive boat rides with snorkeling stops near reefs that will let you experience, not quite what JPR showed you, but some very beautiful sights.

Yup, Cozumel is seven layers of awesome. As for safety, there aren't any issues there. It was still a little disconcerting seeing the Federalis with their machine guns mounted on pick up trucks and stationed every couple miles on the road from Cancun to Playa del Carmen.

The ruins in Tulum are awesome:

The diving is phenomenal in Coz. Skip the snorkeling. Get SCUBA certified and do some shallow dives. Plus, SCUBA is easier than snorkeling, IMHO.

Where we stayed, the dive boat left right from our beach. The first is of us gearin' up for the day's dive. The second is a nifty sunset shot to give y'all a better idea as to how close the dive op pier was to our beach.

I agree jpr.
We snorkelled all over the Dominiacan Republic and just wanted to get off the surface.
I was certified in Sept ..did my 4 open water dives in 54 degree water and cant wait to hit the warm water in 25 days, not that I am counting.

My sweety snorkelled in Coz 2 summers ago on a boat called the Nena.
This Lady made her feel like a pro and no worries if you have no experience.
Anyone going to Coz check out www.divewithchristina.com
I have not bought the expensive underwater camera yet but will try to rent one in Roatan and bring back some pics.
