We booked "Passion Island Escape by Boat" and LOVED it! This was our 3rd trip to Cozumel and we were looking for something different. We boarded a boat and the ride took about 30 min to the island. It was beautiful! Perfect sandy beach, unlimited bar drinks, hammocks, shady tables, plenty of lounge chairs, delicious lunch and probably the best guacamole I've ever had (I lived in Houston 10 years, I know guacamole). The downer? Not enough time. We had to leave at 1:00. Highly recommend this excursion for a relaxing beach break! The cost was $79 per person.
You kayak out to the dive spot. Nothing much to report here.
We booked "Cheeseburger Reef Kayak and Power Snorkel" and I'm giving it a generous 3 because the owners of the equipment and guides were so nice. The power snorkel equipment barely worked and was more trouble than it was worth. We did a similar excursion last year in Grand Turk and the equipment was much nicer and we could zip around really fast if we wanted. Most people ended up putting the power snorkel back on the kayak and snorkeled without it. The cost was only $65 per person, so I guess you get what you pay for.
We booked a day pass to the Hilton Rose Hall Resort thru an independent website. A very comfy bus drove us there, taking 30 minutes. I didn't see the resort rooms, but the grounds are exquisite! I will definately look into taking an all inclusive vacation there in the future. Beautiful beach and a lazy river, food, drinks and transfer (bus ride) were included in the cost of $94 per person. I would highly recommend this excursion!
No reason to worry about being in Jamaica as some people do. RC has built a huge shopping complex at the port. We didn't see any of the "scary" stuff until we left the area.
