Cozumel had three main piers - International Pier, Punta Langosta, and Puerta Maya. All were destroyed by Hurricane Wilma, but International and Punta are mostly back to normal. Puerta Maya is another issue...it is still almost two years away from being returned to normal service.
So...depending on the ship count and contracts, some dock and some tender. Punta Langosta is the best dock to me, since it is downtown.
And being downtown, Punta Langosta is within staggering distance from Senior Frogs and Carlos and Charlies! (For some its crawling distance... ) Its great fun to watch the people returning late from Senior Frog's after a couple of mega-ritas One of these times I'm going to see someone take a gainer off the pier...
