The two most popular ways to get to Cozumel Island are the Playa del Carmen Ferry or stopping by on a huge cruise ship. The ferry takes 45 minutes one way and cost about 12 USD in 2008. The island is host to the smallest Hard Rock Cafe in the world. Downtown Cozumel is a kind of "Playa del Carmen light". It has a lot of pedestrian shopping areas, but not as much traffic or other congestion. There is much of the island that is NOT crowded and very quiet, as you can see on the next page of Cozumenl Tour Photos.

Cozumel is fairly famous for having world-class scuba diving and snorkeling. With a 45 min ferry ride to Playa del Carmen, you can also take tours to Mayan ruins sites, like Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Coba. The very last photo is actually returning from Cozumel and shows the beach of Playa del Carmen.

These photos were taken in 2008.
