Good but somewhat confusing. After entering the terminal we were greated and things seemed to be going smoothly then we were shuffled over to an area and told to have a seat then we were told that we were not in the correct seats and we were told to go to others that were wrong also. we ended up in the correct area eventually.

This was tourist trappy as it was built by the cruise lines. But it was safe and clean and had things going on. Negotiation with the shop owners is a must

Cozumel, Mexico
