3 days in Cozumel - which days to choose?

We are 3 beginner divers and 2 snorkeler. We want to stay 3 days in Cozumel but don't know which days to pick. So what 3 days would be the best for us? We are going toward the end of June

Sat, Sun, and Mon in order to avoid cruise ships on Sun? Or is everything closed on Sun?

Everyday is a good day on Cozumel. Many places are open on Sundays and you don't want to miss the music on the plaza Sunday night. What else do you want to do besides diving and snorkeling...it might make a difference.

diving and snorkeling are really the big ones for me. But we want to have good restaurants open too. Nighttlife would be nice. We aren't shoppers so don't care about that.

Sunday night can be a little difficult for restaurants. A few are closed, but other old favorites (like El Moro) are open. Sunday afternoon salsa band at Playa Azul is wonderful. All the locals dancing. Sunday evenings on the square can be a lot of fun, too. There are cruise ships everyday it seems, some more than others, but never so many that it's a problem anymore. Just pick the three days with the best weather.

I do not believe that cruise ships should have any impact on your decision.

Cruise season has already wound down -- low-season calm is here. There are few ships coming in now and fewer will be arriving after June 1, the start of hurricane season. You shouldn't worry about crowds in June!

Summer Sundays are beach days for locals & visitors -- it gets very, very quiet in town. For downtown dining & shopping, I recommend visiting on days other than Sunday.

Watersports are always available -- day of the week doesn't matter.

I do enjoy sundays with no cruise ships, but after diving all day the cruise ships are usually leaving the time we head to town.
