PLAYA DEL CARMEN, SOLIDARITY 1 January.- The arrival of one of the boats New Boats Caribe shipping company, which will soon provide service of maritime transportation in Playa del Carmen to Cozumel and back route, considered of great benefit and the trip cost 60 pesos, caused excitement among the passengers who were on the docks of this port and the "Island of the Swallows"; because finally put an end to the duopoly formed by the Molina-Aviomar Group (Boats Mexico) and overseas companies have conspired to charge extortionate price the passage of 163 pesos for a trip of 18 km. 
Around 15:00 this Thursday, the first day of the year 2015, one of the modern vessels of the company Impelling Maritime and Caribbean Quintana Roo SA de C. V, with tradename Boats Caribbean, happened in the harbor of the port on their way to to the island of Cozumel, which will have its base, causing welcome among the passengers who were on the dock of the Maritime Terminal keeps waiting for the boat to go to the Island of the Swallows, because once it becomes operational will pay 60 pesos, instead of stratospheric 163 pesos charged by Mexico and overseas ships. 
As you may recall, last December, was confirmed entry into operation of third shipping company to provide the service of boats on the sea route Playa del Carmen Cozumel and vice versa, so the duopoly firms Molina-Aviomar and overseas break and result in better prices for more than 2 million passengers a year traveling the continental massif to the Island of the Swallows, who currently pay 163 pesos one way for a crossing of 18 kilometers, as the consortium Boats Caribe charged 60 pesos, which will benefit the tourism service of Cozumel to increase the flow of visitors, because many do not, given the excessive passage . 
Note that the start-up of the shipping overseas, a decade ago, it did not benefit passengers crossing to the island of Cozumel and was thinking, because for over 30 years Molina-Aviomar group virtually maintained a monopoly imposing exorbitant prices, broken by the fleeting passage of the Shipping of Quintana Roo, whose ships suffered strange accidents, because in the end they came to an "agreement" and created a duopoly, insomuch that they charge the same price of 163 pesos one way, a situation that inhibits the journey of thousands of people are left with the desire to visit the beauties of the Island of the Swallows. 
Finally, it is expected that shortly into the new shipping operations Boats Caribbean, since that Thursday became one of its modern boats, helmet blue and white upper part, which soon will cross the sea that separates Playa del Carmen to Cozumel Island, with a fair price of 60 pesos, benefiting of thousands of workers who have to spend 326 weekly pesos round trip, to go to the "people" to visit family.

I hope they stay in business. Will they be offering the same hourly schedule or will they start running on the half hour?

Great news.  Hope they go into service soon.   The roundtrip price on the other two, made you think twice about doing a quick day run to PdC.
