You come out through the glass doors of customs and immigration and make a right. The last booth on the left with it's back to the outside wall is where you purchase your ticket. Prices are marked by where you are going.
Once you have your ticket, retrace your steps and head out the front door where the vans will be waiting. Show your ticket to the coordinator and they will point you to the correct van.
Drivers really appreciate a tip is you have it in your heart to give one.
IGNORE the line the sales people standing in a line between you as you come out the glass doors and the Aviomar van ticket booth mentioned above. These are time share salesmen pretending to be tourist advisors who want to help you with transportation from the airport among other things. They can be very authoritative in manner. Ignore them and keep heading to your right to buy your van ticket (s).

Also it is war between the taxistas and the Aviomar van drivers. And Aviomar has won that battle for the time being. Taxis now typically won't pick you up until you're at least 3 blocks down airport blvd. So you'll have to haul your bags 5 blocks down the street in the heat and then stand there and wait. Also a cab is not even going to stop for you there if he/she sees a van coming down the road behind him.
You can also haul your bags over to 65 but the problem there is not many cabs come that way.
All in all I think it's really just easier to take the van. It's what I do whenever I'm coming home.
If you're going to Isis, you'll be the first people let off in the van going through El Centro so no biggie.
Another option is to rent a car at the airport or at one of the places just across the traffic circle from the airport. THAT you can do.

Big mistake as my wife called right back to make a reservation and the price was now four hundred for 12 days instead of 120. Ironman.
After much pleading she got our reservation back to where it was. When we get there tomorrow it should be very interesting to see if we have a reservation or not.
I guess what I am trying to say is keep it simple, take the van or whatever get home, or to resort, and then hassle with everything.
Every time I try to be smart I end up stupid.

Prices went up in September, current rate to the south, say Iberostar is $141 pesos per person. Hillbilly, if you are going to el centro, the rates went to $57 pesos. Hillbilly, it tends to be a given, no matter which you chose about everything, you should have chosen the other. Given the "incidents last month, it is even less suggested to not walk off grounds and take a taxi. Suit yourself, but taxistas taking the risk have adjusted their rates accordingly, so close to the same price for two people.
Just wondering what the current rates are per person from the airport to the South hotel zone?

No hurries no worries. I stop at the shuttle booth and purchase tickets, Don stops at the Air Margaritaville to purchase our cold drinks and then we get in the van. A hot day in a van on Cozumel is so much better than a great day at work with a classroom full of 8th graders!
Now There's a good attitude! I like it!
