My wife and I enjoy to do thing far from crowd and by ourselves. We will be goiing on January on the Sun and we want to go on very nice and secluded beaches with our own snorkling equipement and visit remote places if we have time. We have done this in Cuba many times and it's great.

What are the best "safe" spot in Costa Maya and Cozumel ?

Best place to rent car or scooter in Cozumel (near the pier) ?

Name of pier (arrival) in Cozumel ?

All informations will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

J & G:

We went to Costa Maya on the Grand Princess 2006. They will dock at a pier. Once off the pier and walking towards the shopping area, there is a long beach starting to the right of the pier. It's a short walk with lots of paplava umbrellas for cover. There were not many people there, and you could enjoy the seclusion for you and partner for other things other than snorkeling. There are great views of the ships in port and the water is beautiful. Most passengers flock to the shopping area south of the main pier for shopping, food, drink, sunshine and relaxation. You will not find food service or drinks, north of the main pier, so be prepared for that. South of the pier there is food service and bars, but LOTS of people, and NO seclusion. Otherwise, you will have to take your chances for a ride from a taxi driver to take you somewhere. Environment away from pier area is mostly dense trees, brush, jungle type atmosphere.

As for Cozumel, it really depends where the Sun will arrive, possibily south of the main city area, (3 miles) or directly at the main pier downtown. Snorkeling is great south of the south pier. On the Dream we tied down at the downtown main pier with about three other ships. Car rentals are not traditional cars, like a Hertz or Budget. You may have to opt for a scooter, which will be low priced and economical, then you can enjoy your own time, and total seclusion for you and your wife, along the island. On the east side of Cozumel, you won't find much except jungle environment, but who knows you might enjoy playing Tarzan and the wife Jane for a real fun time. Cozumel can be lots of fun, and the snorkeling and diving is some of the best in the world. Enjoy the cruise and enjoy the seclusion.
