My son (14) and I are thinking about doing the Cozumel Race. Has anyone done this excursion recently? We are wondering whether to book in advance, or if it might be less expensive to wait until we get there... Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated!!

First time in Cozumel, only one day, what to do? (11 Replies)
Hi everyone, I need some guidance :) My wife and I are taking our first cruise, which is making a one day stop in Cozumel. We kind of want to do something adventure-ish, but we aren't very active people, so we don't want to do anything too strenuous. I've been researching excursions and narrowed it down to a few things I think we'd like: The Amazing Cozumel Race / Race Fantastique Isla de Paison via Twister Tulum Excursion We're big amazing race fans, so the Cozumel...More

First thing, you don't have to book a RCI excursion. Tons of things you can safely book yourself, much cheaper. However, I am conservative and if going to Tulum (which is on the mainland I would go through RCI to make sure you make the ship) Look to the right under top coz questions there is a topic for one day in Cozumel. Cozumel is one of the top dive sites in the world with beautiful water which makes snorkling some of the best. If you really like snorkling I would suggest a tour more...More

The Amazing Cozumel Race - cruise shore excursion (2 Replies)
I've read about this fun way to tour Cozumel and most of the feedback appears to be positive. My question is that the cost of this this excursion is $80 for adults and $60 for kids and last around 2 hours. That seems really expensive, for the privilege of running around Cozumel on your own. They don't even provide you with lunch or souveniers from what I've read. So even if it was a fun excursion, is it really worth $80 per person?

It's never appealed to me to do this. I bet the guy taking the money just busts out laughing on his way to the casa de cambio. I'd almost rather pay 80 bucks for a ride on a motorized pirate "sailboat", watching fake pirates run up and down the boat while eating a little piece of lobster with some steak. I hope you get some answers. I'd like to see what people think of it also.
