Anyone have suggestions for Cozumel. Thinking this may be a good beach place. Been here many times. We will be docked at a different port than I've ever been. Not too sure what is around. We aren't here very long, so thinking a ship excursion might be a better way to go. Have done others on our own here.

We did a chocolate 'factory tour' last year on our own. It was very educational and inexpensive - it was not at all Willy Wonka - more of a home style family business but it was enjoyable and we got chocolate! It was not long - about an hour.

We usually just walk around in Cozumel. We like to have lunch at Panchos Backyard. We have never done an excursion here. We did talk about visiting some ruins this trip, but we decided to keep it low key. It isn't easy being off the ship for very long periods when I am not sure of the food that is offered on these excursions. I don't want my daughter getting ill or going hungry. Snacks only carry you so far.

Is Panchos Backyard close to where we will be docked? We are thinking about doing the Fury Catamaran Snorkle and Beach excursion. It would be completed shortly after noon and would give us time to eat if close by.

It is a pretty good walk. It is all the way at the end of the street all the shops are on. We usually are shopping along the way, so haven't paid close attention, but it is walkable.
