Playa del Carmen
We booked a cruise last monday on the Carnival dream that leaves this weekend and we have decided when we get to cozumel to catch a ferry over to Playa del Carmen because we have been to Cozumel 12 times already... Has anyone done this? $13.00ppe each way and imagine since this is the beginning of peak season both ferry companies are running..

I usually don't suggest doing this independently because of the variables. Just note the words on the ferry schedule such as 'almost every hour' and 'timetables often change'. It's Mexico and strict adherence to a schedule is never a priority.

You really won't have a lot of time. Carnival Dream is there from 10am to 6pm. The first ferry you could take is at noon and that puts you in Playa Del Carmen around 12:45pm. You'd then have to take the 3pm return ferry to Cozumel. Waiting for the 5pm ferry would be a bad idea. This leaves you around two hours in Playa.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 03:44 PM.
