See the island comfortably by taxi, with a friendly, English-speaking driver.

Stop at the beach, go shopping, visit Mayan ruins, snorkel from the shore and eat a real Mexican lunch.

Do whatever you like, it's your own private tour!

Cozumel time
Cozumel clocktower.

 

The new time zone in the south-east of Mexico means Cozumel no longer changes the clocks for Daylight Saving Time in the spring or fall, which affects the time difference between Cozumel and the U.S., Canada and other parts of Mexico.

If you're arriving on a cruise ship then understanding the difference between ship time and local time can be very important, especially if you've booked one of our Cozumel tours.

Different cruise lines have different ways of deciding what time their ships take.

There are 5 main piers in Cozumel.

Punta Langosta, the International Pier (SSA) and Puerta Maya are the three cruise ship piers.

The downtown Ferry Pier is used for passenger ferries to Playa del Carmen and sometimes for cruise ship tenders.

From Cancun Airport, you can take a bus or taxi to Playa del Carmen down the coast to the south.

The trip takes about 60-90 minutes, depending on traffic on the coastal highway.

Or if you prefer, you can pick up a rental car at Cancun Airport and drop it off at Playa del Carmen near the pier, contact us for more information and reservations.
