Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
First off, congrats on 36 years..
Stay in tourist areas which are easy to spot. If somebody approaches you and looks shady they are.
Stay in busy area with other tourists. Lots of places to chill rght off the boat and the cruise will set you up with activities if you so choose.
I went there back in 2006 right after the hurricane. I enjoyed the bar Carlos and Charlies. If you like the bar sceane they make good drinks-didn't order food so unsure about that. Cosumel also had good deals on jet sking. Thought it was well worth the price. The wife will really enjoy the shopping also. Good deals on purses etc. I thought the people were real nice and were all about partying and having a good time.
Señor Santos Beach. It is a short cab ride from port. Cab driver will know where it is. Very few people will be there as it is away from port. There is a bar right on the beach if you need beverages. If you want crowds, head into town to Señor Frogs. Typical tourist stop, but you know what you are getting there.
Have a great time above water.
Underneath it is one of the great diving destinations in the world.
Some of the best snorkeling and diving you can find there. Short boat ride to playa del Carmen which I suggest you check out as well.
Rent a jeep for $25 and head to the other side of the island (east side)... Great beaches with no resorts. On the southeast corner is an isolated reggae bar. It reminds me of the corona ads. Totally chill, good drinks. Grab a drink there first then head north up the east side about 5 minutes... The first beach restaurant you hit, stop there and eat on the beach. Best seafood ever. They catch it fresh off the beach. Crystal clear water... It has been cash only for years though. Don't eat at any other place on that side. Snorkling the water park might be decent but the hurricanes killed all corral that isnt 30 feet or more down. If you dive, they are all deeper drift dives... Good formations down ~70 feet. No worries about security at all. I go to Tulum and Cozumel areas about 3 times a year.

Call pimsleur spanish lessons and listen to lesson one while driving to work. You'll learn basic spanish in a few weeks. Enough to get around town with hotels taxis restaurants and so forth. To me it was the fastest and easiest way to learn spanish because while in the very you listen and talk along with a CD. Way faster and convenient than rosetta stone which makes you sit in front of a cpu everyday.
Some of the best snorkeling, they have a national park for diving and snorkeling , it is a huge area, so clear you can see the bottom at a hundred feet!!! as good as anywhere !!!
I'll be the voice of reason and say do NOT go to Carlos and Charlie's and Señor Frogs....unless you are 19 years old and leaving the US for the first time in your life.
Was just going to say that the wife and I went to Carlos and Charlie's while on a cruise. Definately was a younger party crowd, but it was still fun. Hailed a cab that took us about 15 miles down the road from the Cruiseship. Just hung out on the beach for an hour or so. I think we only had about 4 hours off the ship. Then came back and shopped a bit before getting back on the ship. Cozumel was the shortest visit of the three places we went. Use a boatload of sunscreen too. I ended up with snot bubbles on my shoulders. Disgusting and very painful. And I used sunscreen. Went to Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman Islands as well. If you are going to Jamaica, be careful. Can be a dangerous place if you let it.
north till ya smell it, west till ya step in it.
Try to hit up Isla Pasion. It's a secluded island and was by far the best part of our cruise down there.
Coyoungin on twitter. Circular square movement.
Yea, take some MRE's, a portable sanitary toilet and some all weather sleeping bags just incase.....I kid, have a great time...dont drink the water!! but you can eat the ice ;)
Went there in 2005, taxi driver tried to overcharge us for going into the downtown area... beach bars are what you would expect; for the younger crowd and not the places to just relax. Been to Cozumel once, would never go back, just not an ideal vacation spot.
Use TripAdvisor. I used it for my trip to cabo san lucas and it was filled with traveler reviews about the places to avoid and the things you have to see. Have a great trip!
i stopped there for about 6 hours as our first destination on a Royal Caribbean cruise. It was ok, went to senor frogs and went shopping. Grand Cayman was the best of the three places we stopped. its amazing and i want to go back. agree with the above poster about jamaica, it was scary as hell, everyone that you make eye contact with wants to see you pot and anything else within 10 feet you are willing to buy.
Dude why don't you just skip cozumel and go to Cartagena Colombia. If you're a single guy you'll have the Best week of your life.
Don't know if your on Liberty of the Seas, but its an awesome ship.
It looks like a hole in the wall but the food is wonderful. One of the best dive spots I've been to....get under the water.......

I recommend using motorbike if you plan on moving around a lot, the island is easy to navigate. Great drives and much cheaper than the taxis there. Do a tequila tasting tour. It's a cool place, not one of my favorites but pretty safe considering the status in most of Mexico right now. Keep money in your shoe, cops can be easily purchased and trust me you don't have to be doing something wrong.
