Carseat experience in cozemel
Thanks for all the help in the past few months....I have enjoyed reading the many posts and getting info from all of you
One area that we were unsure of was the use of carseats in Cozumel....there didnt seem to be any clear info/recent experience...so I thought I would offer up our experience.
Used the car seat on the airplane and in our rental car before the cruise. Installed it in a taxi to get us to the port morning of the cruise. Left it curbside with all the luggage to be delivered to our room. The stateroom host stored it for us and took it out minutes before we needed to leave the ship for Cozumel.
We sailed to Cozumel with our four children including a 2.5 year old...Disembarked with car seat in tow....10 minute walk through the little mall area to the taxi stand. Told the man in charge that we needed a van for 6 that had seat belts....he said "this is Mexico...no seat belts needed !!" We said we required them....The very first van that pulled up had belts for everyone...we installed the seat....easy!! Went to Chankanaab....10 minute straight shot down the road....carried the seat to our beach area and left it there for the day....reversed all these steps to return to the ship...again, the first van to arrive had seat belts....stored it once again when we returned to the ship.
We found using the car seat could not have been easier and we would not have done it any other way....
hope this helps some others

Glad to hear everything worked out for you. We walked around Cozumel on our last trip there, but I looked and found many taxis with working seatbelts too.
Hopefully this will encourage more people who want to use car seats to bring them to this port.
