Taking a luxury tour to Playa del Carmen and then Cozumel – booked through MyCancunTours.com http://twitpic.com/1x9d1t
Hmmm… I haven’t yet figured out what was luxury about this tour but it was still fun. We were picked up at our resort, Le Meridian in Cancun at 8 am by a large well air conditioned bus with very comfortable seating. We had been the last stop apparently, as our next stop was merely to transfer to our next bus, going to Playa del Carmen.
There wasn’t much of a view on the highway between Cozumel and Playa del Carmen. A 45 minute drive on a very chilled, comfortable bus, our guide explained in both Spanish and English that we would be catching a ferry in Playa del Carmen to Cozumel, and then boarding bottomless boats and taken out to various reef spots around the island for snorkeling and photo opps. After this, we would be enjoying a lunch at Miguel’s Grill with the rest of our tour group and were free to explore the island for shopping or scooter rides before the ferry back to Playa del Carmen and the bus ride back to Cancun. We of course ditched the tour for the ride home- a plan we had prearranged with the tour company so we could stay in Cozumel for 4 days and then return to Cancun.
