Take the Ferry Across to the mainland and go visit Some Ruins..Tulum is very doable in that time frame..

More specifically, I think the advice is to take the ferry to Playa Del Carmen. Visit PDC or some of the ruins in the area. Tulum is about 45 minutes south of PDC. There are ruins with a nearby beach. There are other ruins but they may be too far for just a 10 hour stay.

Isn't a tour an adventure?

Isn't a cruise a tour?

I'm wondering why you wouldn't want to stay on Coz???? I was introduced to and fell in love with Coz from a cruise.

I would be freaked out checking my watch all the time if I ventured that far from the docked ship!!!

That would be so un relaxing!!!

There are so many lovely things to do in Cozumel.

Start in the town and have a leisurely breakfast at the museum on the waterfront and take it from there.

You could hire a car and drive round the island with plenty,of time to stop wherever you liked; try the new ecoparque which has zip lines and looks good. It even has horse riding.; Mayan steam lodge; and so on.....
