Our cruise shipped arrived in Cozumel during a rain storm. It was pouring rain and it looked as if our plans to spend the day snorkeling at the Money Bar would be a bust. We spent the first hour off the ship doing a fast bit of shopping and the weather started to get better. We went back to the ship, grabbed our gear, and headed to the Money Bar.
The weather remained drizzly and overcast for our entire stay, but it did not effect our fun. We decided to go with one of the packages they offered. It was a 30 min massage, lunch w/ soda, and a cocktail for $35. We had brought our own snorkel gear so we did not have worry about renting. They had nice large clean bathrooms to change in and showers to rinse off after swimming.
The snorkeling was great, tons of fish and nice warm water. The rain had not caused the water to cloud as much as we thought and we were still able to see lots of sea life. We brought a small amount of Cheerios with us and feed the fish. It was amazing as they surrounded us.
After our snorkel it was time for our lunch and massage. Hubby went first while I ordered my lunch. I had beef tacos and they were fine. 3 tacos with steak strips that were server with refried beans, pico de gallo, and guacamole. It was then time for my massage. She gave me a choice of hard, medium, or soft. I went for medium and was happy with that choice. I almost never get massages, so I don't have much to compare it to, but it felt great to me.
When my massage was complete it was about time to go. We had them make our cocktails to go. We ordered mango margaritas. They seemed a little weak on the booze, but were refreshing just the same. We quickly grabbed a taxi outside and were on our way back to the ship in no time.
There are a few things that I think could have been better:
We wanted to lock our belongings on one of their lockers while we were snorkeling, but the lockers were made of wood, falling apart, and located behind the snorkel shop. They wanted $5 for the lock rental and we felt that the fact that the wood bottom on half the lockers had rotted away wasn't secure enough to pay for. Our gear was fine left at our table being watched by the wait staff. If it had been busier I might not have felt the same.
I was stung by a bee on my foot while walking from the bathroom to our table. It was obvious I needed assistance and could not walk for a few minutes. The wait staff ignored me and continued to play on their cell phones. My husband and another patron assisted me in getting back to my chair and removing the stinger.
I felt for $35 we had a fair deal and would go back to the Money Bar again. The snorkeling and facilities are great, but the food and beverage is just average.
