Very pretty, neat place to walk around. I, however got chased down by a local on my way back to my cruise telling me "you are very beautiful"

“Carnival ship cruise stop”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Great place for a day. Police were everywhere for safety of 15,000 peeps sightseeing from 5 cruise ships. Lots of shops, with fantastic gift prices. Felt very safe on main beach frontal road.

“The Plaza”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

It was fun to go into town and walk around. It would be a lot nicer if there wasn't so much "hawking" going on. It's hard to soak up the sights with people trying to get you into their shops constantly. But they have to make a living. I would come back here anytime...

“music in the square!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

every sunday at about 8pm there is a grewt band that plays with many instruments the fine Caribbean sound! go to watch the people elaborate dancin or the kids playing . lately there atr fire dancers and these break dancers that are true... athletes! come for the cool nites and people watching or head to the locals selling banana wrapped chicken tamales! If the cuban band is playing you will be hard pressed not to tap or even dance like a local. its fun free and it's the best of cozumel ..topside!

“The Plaza”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

This was a stop on our Carnival Cruise and it was rather a nice one. We got off on our own just spouse and I. We got to walk around the plaza on our own. It was very clean and vendors very friendly. We needed to buy our daughter some clothes. We noticed she was short play clothes. We walked over to the cab area and was able to get a cab for a small fee. We spoke Spanish and asked the driver where the locals nearby could by childrens clothing, non tourist clothes. He drove us to a small plaza away from the port, but we could still see tourists that made it that far. We walked around a bit asking for childrens clothing until we made it a bit into the plaza and found a store. We didnt want to walk in any further since by then we didnt see ANY tourists down that way. We made it back safely and stopped for a local beer and had some mariachis play for us. We made it back to the ship on another cab, picked up the kids and headed back down to the Plaza for pictures with the kids. It was a very relaxing day. Would love to return and explore some more.
