maybe a silly question

My DH asked an interesting question that I had not considered. Is there a town center for Cozumel that is accessible on foot. I imagine getting off the boat and seeing lots of booths and small building for various excursions and private beaches but what about a walking market etc and if so is it safe with kids. We like to try to find good vanilla in Mexican border towns, not sure if this is a thing in Cozumel.

Yes, Cozumel has a nice city center with lots of shops. Be sure to stop at the little park in the center of the shopping area and look at the tree full of iguanas! Once you get off the ship, keep walking through the shopping plaza at the pier, take the escalator to the ground level and walk a few blocks left to the town center.

Per the PP's comment, you have to walk through what is more or less a two-story shopping mall to get "outside" in Cozumel. Not huge, but quite a few shops with most of the standard souvenir types of things. That's where we spent much of our shopping time after our excursion, and we felt very safe with our kids.

I'm so glad you asked this question! Over Christmas I spilled 1/2 my large bottle of vanilla that we bought in Puerto Vallarta. My kitchen smelled lovely but all I could think of was 'I sure hope there's shopping right at the port in Cozumel!!'
