Hello everyone!

 

  Found this great forum as I was trying to get some info on Cozumel. Im from NJ and going to Cozumel with my girlfriend to Cozumel late April early May. First we will be visiting her family in Veracruz and then we will be spending 10 days in Cozumel. We will be flying to Cancun and then catching the Ferry. Was wondering if with everyones experience here you guys could help me out on some stuff. First, I would love to rent a Dune Buggy or a VW Bug Convertible for the days Im there (I love those things!!!) I would prefer the actual Dune Buggys, but a VW convertible will do too. Where to rent it? All Inclusive Resort on the beach that wont break my bank but still has good quality, which one would you choose? And finally, things to do, besides the beautiful beaches, what I mean is, those days that I grab the Dune Buggy with my girlfriend and go driving around the island, cool things that I can do. Please let me know.

 

Thank You!!!

 

  Cant wait!!!!!

First question, Dune Buggy Rental:http://htlrentals.com/vehicles.html

 

VW Bugs, you can rent just about any place:  Less Pay, ISIS runs about $35 bucks a day.

 

Two things to remember.  There is no off road driving.  The 4 wheel drive on Dune Buggies, and Jeeps has been disabled.

If it rains, or you need to store your personal items, a dune buggy or jeep will not give you a truck security.

 

 

Here's a review of hotels that might help you find what your looking for:http://www.hotels.co...cozumel-mexico/

 

My personal choice, that I put my family up at is Coral Princess, which is north of centro.

 

South of town, your going to need a vehicle.

If your not far North, you can walk or bike to town.

   Also, 1 thing I forgot. Can anybody give me a list things that I shouldnt miss? Ex: Restaurantes, Bars, Monuments...Things like that, whatever ever they are. I dont want to go to Cozumel and then find out that I missed something that everybody knows about.

 

Thank You!

C2W:

We did the "Pirate Cruise" the first year we cam dow (about 20 yrs. ago).  We were under impressed with it.  Would it be worth reconsidering this time down?

My opinion, surprisingly the "Pirate Cruise" gets complimentary reviews on the food. It has both R as well as PG rated fun, obviously over priced, it does have repeat customers, especially those with children. The music that they blare out, easily heard from Melgar, I use the word music rather loosely. You'd have to pay me and I'd bring ear plugs. I think that the more drunk you are, the higher the satisfaction level of guests. Why must so many tourist offerings include, encourage excessive alcohol consumption. I'm surprised many people remember their vacations. If considering, make sure you are in for good weather, might be neater with a full moon.

Restaurants that I like to eat at:

 

Bucanno's- breakfast, and lunch.  Dinner service only on Friday and Sat nights.  Res. required

Gudio-hadn't been in quite a while, but went recently and enjoyed it very much

Woody's in the square-fun place food is good.  Live music every night

Kelly's-like their baby back ribs, and XX's on tap

OHana's-excellent Chicago style deep dish pizza.  

Gusto's-they are about 2 miles south of the International Pier

El Moro-They offer more dishes the any restaurant I know

La Perlita- the best lion fish on the island! I have it served in coconut.

Blue Angle-good food, great view.
