We took this ferry twice during our stay in Cozumel and it was convenient and comfortable each time.

Great ferry - we sat downstairs in the comfy seats with the air con, plug in your own music, close your eyes and before you know it you are arriving in Cozumel! They sell drinks and crisps etc. on the ferry! Just buy a one way ticket and then another one on the way back - that way no problem... More

They had live music and it was interactive and fun. Well kept boat. Awesome trip The only thing is they push you to buy round trip (and why wouldn't you, you're going back) yes but their schedule is opposite of the other ferry's schedule which is another company. So just get one way and then when you are done in... More

We took this ferry twice to and from the cruise port. On our way to our tour they picked up our excursion tickets when getting into the ferry. The ferry seats were comfortable and they kept playing a video in loop of tourist places. The bar staff was very friendly and greeted the passengers. Too bad I cannot say the... More

Was excited to take the ferry to Cozumel during our stay in the Maya Riviera. We did not realize Cozumel was so close! We were able to use a credit card for the fare. It only took about a half hour to cross. Even though the lines can be long, they have many boats. So don't worry if you think... More

They are two companies working and you have a ferry leaving every hour. The cost is 155 pesos (around 13 US $). It cost the same buying 2 single tickets than a return one so although is a pain to the queue twice, you might want to see which company is leaving first at the time of your return and... More

The ferry from Playa Del Carmen to Cozumel was fantastic. It was fast, efficient and great service. The staff take your bags upon boarding, there are comfy seats inside to sit on or you can take in the fresh air and sit outside. The line for the ferry to Cozumel was huge as it was peak season, but on the... More

We used this ferry from Cancun to Isla Mujeres for a half day trip. The ferry is clean, the service prompt and it is all very accessible. The ticket counter only takes cash, so plan accordingly. Also, there is a "dock" fee that adds a couple of dollars per person above the advertised prices. We rode up top on the... More

Try taking the ferry over to cozumel when in playa del Carmen - what fun! People going to work, back packers and tourists - all together bouncing about on the beautiful carribean sea. The hire cars are a sight to see - we hired what we thought was to be a volkswagon "herbie" convertible - metallic green and held together... More
