We booked this excursion during our Carnival Cruise. I heard the words all-inclusive and open-bar and I was READY! The other passengers from the cruise were great people which made the whole experience wonderful. We are not your "traditional couple" and we were treated like the others. The Twister ride was awesome and fun as we zoomed passed the group that took the catamaran to the island. Aida was our guide and gave us the "tequila group" name and trust I had plenty of tequila. White sand beach, fun in the water, relaxing, it was the best day ever. I give the food a 5 out of 10, but everything else are 10's across the board.

We went to Isla de pasion while on our honeymoon. It was a great trip! We took the power catamaran because it was a little cheaper than the twister. We ended up seeing a school of flying fish on the way, which was awesome. The only thing that did not meet our expectations was the food. It was a little cold and overall not the best, but I would still go back in a heartbeat!

Had a great time - we followed up our bike ride through the jungle of Cozumel with an excursion to Isla de Pasion - what a great place! Practically an otherworldly experience - beautiful beach, fantastic crystal clear water, lots of activities and great food! Highly recommend this one - fun for all ages!

We booked the Passion Island Excursion via Shoreexcursioneer.com, and they have the best rates and deals for Passion Island. Check before you go and compare. I do not think you can get to Cozumel and pay tickets at the cruise port, and if you could, it would be as expensive compared to the onboard Cruise Excursions. The best way to get to the Island from the cruise port is to take a taxi to Cozumel downtown for $6-8. From there, the twister picks you up and take you to the Isla de la Pasion (Passion Island). You can search Twister Passion Island to find out all about the excitement.

If you do not take the twister boat, the taxi ride is $50 each way ($100 today). You can pay the driver when he comes back to pick you up. Beware that the road is very rough for 3+ miles; it's the same road that dune buggies use, so your taxi will go very slow for a 3+ miles stretch. Again, I recommend the twister to the island and not by taxi.

The island is beautiful, but go early and be the first group there. You can only do that when you order online. We left the ship at 8:30 AM, and through taxi lines, road trip via taxi, pay the remaining cost of the excursion, and a small boat to the island (5-8 minutes), we were at the island by 10 AM. Free buffet, very good food, very spicy sauce available, and open bar, but we had to leave the island by 1:30 PM - 2 PM. Our ship disembarks at 4:30 PM. If your ship disembarks later, you can leave later.

Several people booked the excursion through United Airlines, Carnival Cruise, or online like myself. If you stay in Cozumel, you can probably enjoy the Island until 4 PM or 5 PM. Ask the booking company before you go. If you like secluded private beautiful beach, this one is for you. But if you like to see sunrise and sunset on a beautiful beach, you will not be there long enough to see either.

My wife and I are in our early 50's and have sailed on numerous ships throughout the past 15 years, taking many shore excursions in the process. This was actually our second choice of excursion in Cozumel (the first being sold out before we could book). This little piece of paradise turned out to be the best shore excursion, at an unbelieveable rate (I think we paid $69 a person), and got an umbrella lounge chair, all the food and drinks we could handle (at no additional charge), and there were even drink runners all over the beach so you didn't have to get up unless you wanted too (small tips were appreciated at the end of the day). The water/beach was beautiful, the atmosphere was excellent and it was just a great time had by all. Everyone one around us was raving about what a great excursion this was. Thanks Carnival for the great time and the memories!
