Finally post #10......
As for Cozumel plans...me and the kids really want to swim with the dolphins, but I'm afraid to book ahead of time just in case of weather and if the water is too cold (If I spend that much I want to enjoy every second). Our other option we are debating is to just take a taxi to Paradise Beach and relax while the kids play on the toys in the water!!!
Anyone done either of these in Cozumel???

You can see my earlier post on Chankanaab and you are welcome to tag along or I can give you the details. We go there instead of the other beaches because you can see the dolphins as part of the entrance fee. My oldest loves dolphins so we would just spend time looking at them. You can go back and add in to swim with them if you decide the water temp is right. The beach is right by the Chanknaab reef, has a pool, food, etc. You can google the website. Paradise beach is good too. I did that long ago and remember a longer ride, but maybe it was because I had a 2 year old who was fussy.

THat is so helpful lmackay!Where did you find the internet coupons?
About how long should we allow for the cab ride, possibly adding on swimming with dolphins, and pool time? Since our time in cozumel is rather short I want to try and have a little time to shop before boarding the ship.
I really like that we could add the dolphin adventure after we get there, depending on the weather, etc.
Thanks again

Hey...I am almost up to 10 posts! The cab is 5 to ten minutes. There are two ports in Cozumel. If we are at the end it is maybe 10 minutes. The main port it is 5. $10 to $15 for family of four. (in July of 2012 so subject to change) My kids are up early so we eat a huge breakfast and are off the boat by 9 or whenever we dock. We beat the crowds because we are so early!!

We are there until 1. We look at the dolphins, swim, eat nachos(less chance of food poisoning), build sand castles and then dip in the pool to get the sand off on the way out. The market is by the port so you can shop. They have a great system to get money out of you...drop you in the market!! I shop for awhile and go get on the boat. After a couple of shops you notice they have the same basic things. My kids love to swim and snorkel but 3-4 hours is good enough.

Tip: Cozumel has clean/sanitized water because it is a small island. I still don't drink a drink with ice or frozen drinks. Beer, cola (no ice), rum/coke, or water bottles for the kids. Not worth the chance. (Now that I have posted this I will probably end up with food poisoning... )

Oh...google Chankanaab and you find stuff. I don't think I can put or link or I will get in trouble with the DIS board. I look at Cozumel Insider but there are others. Trip Advisor is also good. The only problem is that you need to decide quick once you get there for the dolphin swim. Usually more than one cruise ship is docked so you compete for space. Again...we are always on the earlier side so never a problem.

Would love to know some shopping tips.... I seem to find the same stuff. What do you buy in Cozumel???

Thanks for the info on Chankanaab Imackay. After much indecision we have decided - for the time being - to go there. We could not decide between Paradise and Chankanaab for awhile but there some to be so much more to see at Chankanaab. I found a coupon for $2 off adult and $1 off kids admission by googling.

I have also printed stuff out on card stock paper (much cheaper than magnets or laminating). I put all of them in a folder to keep them nice and the add sticker magnets (again cheap at Walmart) to the back when we get inboard! They have always worked great!

We are around the Cabot area (about 20 mins outside of Little Rock) and our family is here with us and in Virginia. Hot Springs isn't too far from us.. it's a small world!
