Take a look at the top questions on the right side. Options of flying vs bus, ferry. There is a video in there of the bus and ferry option as well. It is very easy.

Personally, I hate what is known as the "bag drag", which is the bus from the airport to Playa del Carmen and then the ferry from there to Cozumel. But some people swear by it.

We always use Mayair now, the little planes that go from Cancun direct to Cozumel airport. It's not expensive and a wonderful way to see Cozumel from above and enjoy the views. It takes about 15 minutes.

Maria is right the best wat is Mayair, make sure to call them, becouse your arrival its to the international terminal, and where you take the plane to Cozume it´s another terminal. that will save you time here´s the link of their web side.

only trouble with flyin on mayair is the luggage limit. if you carry a lot of stuff then the bus/ferry may be the only option.

also, depending on flight times etc, if you use mayair, you might end up sitting in the airport for a lot longer than needed.

Does anyone know how far in advance you book a RT flight thru Mayair?

Their website isn't showing anything for October. I'm not sure if it's because it's too early, or if they don't have daily flights.

They do have several daily flights, it's probably just WAY too early.

Go to Mayair.com.mx and contact them. Desmei's answer is most likely correct.

I actually just found decent nonstop flights from IAH to CZM, on United, that aren't on a Saturday.

It's a miracle.
