Can you drive to Cozumel?

Can I get to Cozumel by automobile (rented or not)? You may drive to Cozumel from Calica (part of Playa del Carmen) on a cargo ship. Cozumel is served by two cargo ferry lines: Ultramar and TransCaribbean. The last ferry leaves Calica at 20:00, and reaches Cozumel around 06:30 the next day. The trip takes about 12 hours.

The best way to get to Cozumel is by car. There are several ways to do it. The most popular one is to take the Mexico City Highway (Dirección General de Tráfico), also known as the Pemex Road. This road passes through the states of Mexico and Quintana Roo, connecting the two largest cities in Mexico: Mexico City and Cancun.

You can also take the Caribbean Coast Highway. This route connects Havana, Cuba with San Juan, Puerto Rico, and it's considered one of the world's best drives. It is wide and well maintained, with plenty of food stalls and shops along the way. The highway follows the same direction as the ferry that crosses over to Cozumel, but instead of going all the way to Cancun, it ends up in Playa del Carmen. From there you can continue on with our touristic route.

The third option is to take the old colonial roads of Mexico.

Is Cozumel a tourist trap?

Cozumel is one of the world's busiest cruise ports. Cozumel is also a popular day excursion for those vacationing on the Riviera Maya's mainland. The majority of these guests arrive via boat from Playa del Carmen. However, if you take a taxi directly from the port to some of the more isolated beaches, you will find many less-visited spots that are only accessible by road.

Because Cozumel is such a popular destination, there are plenty of expensive hotels and restaurants. However, there are also many lower-cost options. You should expect to spend between $50 and $100 per night on average.

In addition to hotel and restaurant prices, other factors may lead someone to label Cozumel as a tourist trap. Many travelers feel like the island has been turned into a theme park with many of the main attractions being shopping malls or casinos. There are also concerns about crime in Cozumel. It's been said that the local police can be corrupt so please use caution if you do decide to visit.

However, tourists have the opportunity to explore a different side of Mexico when they visit Cozumel. The city is known for its lively street festivals and cultural events and can offer something unique for everyone.
