Ferry to Cozumel, does it take cars also?

Can I take a rental car to Cozumel on the Playa del Carmen Ferry. If not is there another ferry that will?

I asked this, also. The ferry from PDC to Cozumel is not for cars. I don't know of one that is. Maybe check in the Cancun forum.

Last time we checked the price to ferry a car from the mainland to Cozumel, it was pretty expensive. It's probably more economical to just rent a car for the day in Cozumel. There are lots of reputable rental companies there. One in particular, CP Rentals, has an office both in Playa and in Cozumel.

Thanks to all for the great suggestions. I was also on the Cozumel Forum and got the same advice. I even asked about renting a scooter and was set stright about the dangers with them on Cozumel. I will either get a cab or rent a small car.

Thanks again, Chuck
