Had a great time on the Cozumel Bar Hop. We got a taxi and went downtown to meet our excursion. We then loaded a bus (41 of us) to go to the eastern side of the island to 4 bars. There is no electricity on the the east side. It is all run by generators or solar power. We had a blast learning about the island on our trip from the leaders. The bar hop also included one drink from each of the bar plus a bar hop t-shirt. It is well worth doing again.
When we arrived we walked outside of the port to catch a taxi into town. We walked up and down the beach front to decide which business we would want to spend the day at. There are many vendor here and you will be asked by them all to look at their goods. We got tired of saying "No." We ended up at the beach at Big Papas BBQ. It is owned by an American and opened in December. He has joined his business with 100% Agave. He spend a relaxing day on the beach.
We decide we would stay at Mahogany Bay. It is beach at the Carnival port which Carnival and Roatan have built. By staying at the port area, we did not get to experience the culture of the island. We walked to the beach as it was not far. It was not worth the $15 to ride the chair lift as the beach is not that far. The chair lift is just another money maker for the cruise ships. The WIFI here is terrible and I could not get online. It is very American but beautiful.
This is where we were able to use the F2F and get an early tender to port. We meet at guest services and were escorted down to the tenders. No one ever asked for our cards with the F2F sticker. At the port we walked to the library to get on the public transportation (van) to Hell. As each ride you take is $2.50 each way. Very inexpensive to get around in GC. Hell is not as much as it is hyped up to be. There are several small shops, the post office and the rocks that look like what Hell is suppose to be. We did not stay long then caught the next van back to the public beach. We relaxed on the beach for awhile then headed back to the pier area to do some shopping.
