    no, don't worry about it.

    Just so you know...if you want to see the Mayan ruins, they are NOT on the island and you will have to spend time taking a ferry or other boat to the mainland. I don't know how much time we have in Cozumel, but it's usually 8-10 hrs. and you have to decide if you want to spend all that time ferrying over and then taking a bus to the temples. Cozumel has many other things like diving, snorkeling, shopping or hanging out at the beach. Save the temples for another trip!

    That's something I will never get, why in some countries it is illegal to sit on the beach and have a fucking drink. :cry:


    When I was in Bergen, Norway last year for Hole in the Sky , I got there 2 hours before my party and si I went out in front of the hotel with a six back and sat there at a table and drank. it's not wonder I was getting odd looks for passerbys. :lol:

    When my friends showed up they asked me what the hell I was doing? and I said "I drank 4 beers already" and they said "You cannot do that out here!"

    I got to swim amongst giant manta rays in Bandaras Bay on a sailing trip to Puerto Vallata back in '93, now THAT was impressive...

    No kidding. I keep forgetting about this part of the whole thing. I sure hope I can generate some more income between now and then so I can do the whole ATV day trip thing and not just lay in the sun all day sipping smoothies :lol: :?

    I am up for the ATV rental too, putting my wife at the helm of one is a questionable proposition though...

    Do you scuba? I never have, but my hubby has. Cozumel has the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. Ron and I are going to get scuba certified the first part of January so we can go scub diving while we're there. Probably going to lay on the beach the rest of the time.

    I hate the bartering crap you have to go through to buy anything in Mexico, so shopping is out.

    We saw Chichen Itza when we went to Cancun last year. It is indeed impressive, but it is a long-ass bus ride from Cancun. Thank god for the cold Corona!

    Do you scuba? I never have, but my hubby has. Cozumel has the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. Ron and I are going to get scuba certified the first part of January so we can go scub diving while we're there. Probably going to lay on the beach the rest of the time.

    I hate the bartering crap you have to go through to buy anything in Mexico, so shopping is out.

    We saw Chichen Itza when we went to Cancun last year. It is indeed impressive, but it is a long-ass bus ride from Cancun. Thank god for the cold Corona!

    DAMN!!!...I would LOVE to do that toooo!.......I'll have to find a Scuba place here in the desert to get certified.....(no for real....they DO have them ;)


    ??? you need to get scuba certified ??? this is the first i ever hear of this. What else will we need to fully enjoy everything in Cozumel ??? I DONT WANT TO MISS ANYTHING!!

    You do need instruction/certification to scuba. We would rather spend classroom & certification time here, instead of there. More time in the ocean.

    No need to certify to snorkel, however. We just snorkeled Hanauma Bay on O'ahu last week on vacation. It was incredible, but not deep so no need for scuba. We came within a couple feet of a 5-6 foot moray eel. He was pretty badass!

    It's never a problem in Cozumel. It's an island, first of all. All the crime takes place on the mainland. Also, their entire economy relies on tourism. Anyone who tried to fuck over a tourist would likely be castrated by the locals.

    Assuming I don't sleep half that day away in a drunken stupor, I want to check out Mayan ruins. What is everyone else planning on doing?
