I don't find Isla Mujures like old Mexico. Really, nothing in the area like old Mexico. If you want that, head inland a bit to Valladolid.

Cozumel is a large island with busy streets. No golf carts--unless you are on the gold course.

Cozumel will be loaded with cruise ship passengers.

Downtown Puerto Vallarta is more like old town Mexico, there is an old church there. That being said they have modernized the Malecon there so it takes away from its old town feel.

Well, its not like Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres , Cozumel, etc. Like Valladolid and Merida, full of historic buidlings, houses and churches. None of which exist in the tourist areas. Cozumel will have cruise passengers but not too noticeable if you wander away from the main street.

If one would like the experience of the old Mexico i would recommend to go to Zacatecas,Vera Cruz, Mazatlan or Puebla.

Spent a month on Cozumel, it is loaded with tourists every day all day and then they disappear and you are the only one at dinner at restaurants EVERY NIGHT, it is a very weird environment. We loved Isla Mujeres. Cozumel, not so much.
