needed more time - to get water taxi to go to islands about an hour away. this would make this stop awesome- suggest 7am - 6pm or later.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
we had a blast- Guidos restaurant downtown- great sangria and osso boco best meal i had during the entire cruise and it was not on the ship but Italian in Cozumel!
