we arrived via carnival paradise at the carnival pier in december 2012. the pier is on the west side of the island. you will walk down the pier and between two bar/ restaurants, then head left thru the shopping area. catch a taxi at the terminal past the shops for $7 and proceed to Less Pay car rental. for around $36 you can rent a 4 door vehicle with ac and explore the island for the day. we reserved a car on line before the cruise. Less Pay is north of all the cruise docking locations. john or carlos will take god care of you. we traveled to the east side of the island where most of the beaches are located. it is a 20 minute drive with no traffic to speak of on a saturday morning. you will arrive at mescalitos, where you can check out the souveniers and have a drink or choose froggs, next door for food and drinks.the beaches are beautuful.. further down the road is coconuts beach bar with an equally beautiful beach and wonderfully semi private umbrella tables amid island landscaping. continuing on..you will come to the island lighthouse on the left and catedral on the right . there is a wonderful little church there and hand -made crafts are available... take a photo with "the last mayan " just a few more minutes on the main road and you are back in the city to return your rental. the entire trip can be done in 3 or 4 hrs depending on your level of thirst or hunger. this is a great way to spend a day in cozumel, especially if you want to get away from the crowds and the hustle and bustle of the city. we never felt unsafe at any time. enjoy your trip
