Beaches are not a strong point for Cozumel, the snorkeling is....sandy beach=poor sea life....rocky, iron shore means good snorkeling.

You can book airfare, hotel, car, or you can book just air, or just hotel.
I use them a lot to book airfare.
Also if you google, "hotels, Cozumel" you will a list of many of the hotels that are available. You can also compare prices between Cheap Tickets and going directly through the hotel.
...don't rent scooters, buy trip insurance, and have fun!!
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

This is a basic, clean ocean-front hotel. Should be in your price range if you split it four ways. Nice pool area with sandy beach (manmade...but who cares) and decent snorkeling right in front of the hotel. Should fit your needs perfectly.

... DON'T RENT SCOOTERS.
Vacations are best spent on beaches, as opposed to in hospitals.
ETA: Besides the covertable VWs are way cooler, seat 4 and are cheaper.

It all depends on what you want to budget for food, transportation and recreational activities. A rental car will run around $50 a day for full insurance coverage and should be considered a must for 1-2 days to visit the other side of the island. You should not drink any alcohol and then drive.

Hotel Aguilar has 2 rooms with 4 double beds in them for around $55.00 per night.
Wow! That's definitely in the price range and means we have more money to spend on food. Thanks everybody for all the tips. You are the best!
I'll check out the one on the water but this Aguila sounds like what we're looking for. Do you think I'd be safe just coming down and walking in next month? Or should we make a reservation ahead? What is the location? And do the rooms have fridges? So many questions. Sorry to be a bother but this really helps us out.

http://www.hotelaguilar.com/index.php It isn't fancy, but has long had a loyal clientele because of location, price and value. Great restaurant for lunch next door, Sabores open M-F, noon to 4:00PM only. All the rooms I have ever seen had fridges. One block from the water, one block from 24 hour OXXO convenience store. I would strongly advise against renting scooters while in Cozumel, not from them, nor elsewhere, rent a car for a day or two.

It is tragic when I see a group of four people renting scooters and they are all trying to learn to operate them. Probably the majority of the fatal accidents and those with serious injuries are with people that had no experience. But since people in cars run stops signs, you can encounter slippery conditions and unexpected road hazards, toss in a couple of good gusts of wind and even the experienced riders can crash and burn.
Most accidents are neither fatal nor result in serious injuries. Perhaps a bad case of road rash, minor broken bones might be the average. They might result in only $500 dollars worth of damages and medical expenses, but the rest of the trip is pretty well ruined.

Enjoy your trip and be safe.

I can't tell you the number of people who've paid $600-800 for the damage to a rental scooter. Whether major or minor, if you have an accident, you can pretty well figure that you'll be buying the agency a new scooter.
The helmet law instituted 3-4 yrs ago has probably saved a few lives. The problem is that when you rent the availability of sizes is limited, so getting one that fits properly is a cr*p shoot. Besides the fact, some people put a hat on before the helmet and others don't hook or adjust the chinstrap. Flying down the road at even just 30mph with our strong winds blowing, helmets do little good as they are nearly flying off your head. They barely protect, unless properly fitted.
Save your vacation and your life, rent a car.

Most of the larger resorts in Cozumel have a no-spring-breakers policy but the smaller hotels and B&B's are easy and cheaper. Cozumel is very laid back and is nothing like the wild night life that Cancun is known for. But you will love Cozumel and it's clear as air waters. Lots of things to do and see here.
