A very nice port with walk off access right into the city of Cozumel. The waters around the pier are very inviting but take a quick trip south and find a public beach to explore and snorkel. When you get off of your ship you enter a shopping district with hundreds of merchants trying to get their share of your cash. They have many nice things but we found better prices the more we shopped around as many items are carried at other merchants. If you have time hire a taxi or rent a rental car and go explore the island. You will find great beaches south of the city and on the eastern side of the island. Stop by the ancient Mayan ruins in found on the island for $7.00 US per person. They are amazing and over 2000 years old. Most everyone speaks Spanish or English so you should be able to get around rather easily and the people are very friendly. Enjoy your stay and remember to clean up after yourself so the next visitor does not have to see your trash.
