Does anyone know how long it would take us to get from Playa Palancar to Coconuts and how much for a taxi ride? Also the ride back from Coconuts to the ship docks?I don't want to miss the boat, not that I wouldn't love to stay in Cozumel longer but I wouldn't have a way home.

You will have a hard time with a taxi unless you find one that will wait for you while you are there? Not sure how many taxi's are available from Playa Planacar. But if they are there, see if you can share a ride with someone else to help with the cost. Coconuts is definetly worth going to by the way. It has a view to die for, and the atmosphere is excellent with the view, ocean, food, drinks, people all rolled up into one. You won't regret your decision. Sounds like a great combo of snorkeling at one of the best places available, and drinking at the same.

From Playa Palancar to Coconuts can be driven in about 20 minutes I guess. It depends on how slow you drive to admire the scenery and the condition of the road.

If you are on a cruise and want to go to Playa Palancar by taxi and then go to Coconuts by taxi and then go back to the pier by taxi, you will be better off simply contacting Margarita at Rentadora Isis and getting yourselves a rather well-used convertible vw bug for about $35 per day WITH FULL INSURANCE.

Waiting on taxis at each of your stop may consume a lot of time...

I'd go ahead and hire a taxi for a few hours - rates seem to be negotiable - I think we got a guy to drive us around for a big chunk of the day for under $100 (under $70 I think actually)...it was great that we didn't have to worry about having more than one margarita at Coconuts (which you would if you rent a car - those margs are strong!)...we also stopped at a few other bars - completely worth the cost!

Grab a taxi to ISIS, rent a car for the day, visit Playa Plancar, Coconuts and much much more for less than all the taxi fares to do the same and you will not waste any time waiting/relying on a taxi.

You can thank me later :)
