Need help planning day trip to cozmel from ferry

Trying to figure out the best way to get around . There is five of us 2 fifty and 3twenties.

We want to snorkel go to tequila tasting thirsty cougar cigar shop and eat.Open to other things.I see we can get a driver and van for five hours for tour but not if I want to pay someone to wait for us while we snorkel. Haven't decided where to snorkel yet two of us are kinda nervous snorkeling.

We don't want to do driving ourselves.

Your driver will know where to snorkel. One place would be Money Bar, and they have a "guide" to go with you, not sure of the cost, its probably nominal. Money bar is more of a beach club than a bar, they will have everything you need.

Dont worry about having him wait, you will have plenty of time to do the other things, too.

Havana Bob's Greenhouse for cigars, pool and a great mojito. duffer is correct about MB. Easy water access and most of the snorkel 'excursions' drop everybody off out in front. For eating there are a lot of choices. depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for real Mexican, It's El Moro or Casa Denis. you'll definitely need a taxi for El Moro. If you want Mexican in a gorgeous place, it's Casa Mission. Every newbie we've taken there is still talking about it.Have a blast! :)

update; just read your question again. Yeah, we'd go taxi only and you won't need one to wait. they're all over the west side all the time. be sure to ask the fare before you get in.

Sam...they want a tour from the taxi driver...hence, getting one for 5 hours. And they will definitely want to see the East side, and will need to keep the driver with them, over there.

unhappy0945, excellent idea! Enjoy!

Taxi VAN is going to be $30 an hour. A regular taxi is $20 an hour. Since its 5 of you, it will be the Van.
