What do you think about going to Cozumel, Mexico?

Hi reporters!

    Need your opinion.  Our family hasn't been on vacation in years.  We need a vacation.  We used to go to Cozumel, Mexico and loved it.  Is it too dangerous there?  Does anybody have any insight?  Am I worrying too much?   

Thank you!!

Wouldn't that be nice - bunny slippers and PJs.  LOL

Had a friend go to Maccu Picchu and loved it.  You're going to have a great time.  What i've learned about marriage:  when you're right, keep your mouth shut.  When you're wrong, say you're sorry!!  :)

Kelli, still enjoying and using my treadmill desk.  Now, if I could figure out how to wear slippers and pajamas to a job.....

Very beautiful pictures. I'd rather be on that beach with a margarita than trying to get my butt up the mountain of Maccu Picchu, which I'll be doing in a couple of weeks.  Marriage is a compromise, though, so off I go.

Here's another shot looking down the beach (town is the other direction).

BEAUTIFUL!  We're going!  I'm really looking forward to it.  It's been years since we've had a vacation.  Time for some Sol beer and sunshine.  Thanks Judy!!

Lorraine, here's a pic taken from my patio in Playa del Carmen, just a 30 minute ferry ride from Cozumel (so you could do both!).  The beaches are MUCH better in Playa than Cozumel.

I Was in Cozumel last year and had an awesome time.  I didn't think it was dangerous at all.

Hawaii sounds good!  Our son really wants to go to Cozumel because of great memories as a kid.  We left it up to him (sort of) and say where do you want to go because he's coming home from Afghanistan from the war and deserves a vacation!  He really wants to go there.  I just want some feedback on is this place safe or not.

Happy Friday!!

Is Hawaii an option?

On Saturday morning I'll be touching down at Cancun airport, taking a public transportation bus (gets there faster than the hotel's van) over to our timeshare in Playa del Carmen for a week, and then from there spending a few days in Cozumel to dive.  I think you need to keep your eyes open, but I find the shopkeeper vultures on 5th about the most annoying part of Playa.   All of the hotels over there force you to wear a wrist band indicating you're a member.  The vultures on 5th take one look at the band and all of a sudden you're reacquainted with your "favorite" waiter from the night before (even though I've never eaten in the hotel restaurant).  Those bands make us targets.

We were in Cozumel about a year and a half ago.  They do have armed soldiers in front of all of the jewelry stores.  Apparently there was a huge robbery a while back.  They held up the stores and then fled in a waiting boat. 

Cozumel is nice for diving, but it's much more interesting in Playa.  Better restaurants, more things to do.  Better beaches, too.
