There are three ways to get to Cozumel:
- Cozumel International Airport: Direct International flights. Then 10 miles, 20 minutes to the Villa.
If this is your first time in Cozumel, you may want to consider employing the property manager to greet you at the airport for a fee.
The property manager can meet you at the Cozumel airport and assist in getting you to your car rental company or arrange transport by the only shuttle service from the airport. (by law, they can’t transport you) there are transportation monopolies at most airports, only car rentals and one transportation company “Airport Shuttle” are allowed to take passengers. Taxis cannot transport out of the airport but can bring you into the airport. The property manager agent can walk with you to the car rental, help with your luggage, and accompany you to the Villa where they will orient you to Villa Coralina and your surroundingsYou can easily walk to the shuttle window (20 steps across the hallway and to the right) once you clear customs and purchase your shuttle tickets to Cost Del Sol for about $10 USD per passenger.The uniformed agents, at the airport and the ferry docks that seem to want to help you get you to your destination, are a front to the time share sales. For example: They walk up to you and ask: “Which hotel?”, and no matter what your answer is, they will say “This way please” – DON’T GO WITH THEM – Don’t volunteer any info, your name or where you are going, to anyone except to someone with your FULL name on their clipboard.
- Cancun Airport and via the Playa del Carmen Ferry: You should always fly NON STOP to Cancun. 3 hours from the villa. Involves a 40 miles, 1 hour ground transportation to Palya del Carmen, and 12 mile, 35 minute Ferry ride crossing to the Island. If you find it less expensive to fly into Cancun the Property Manager have arrangements to have you met at the airport and transferred directly to Playa del Carmen where the ferry ride is only 35 minutes to Cozumel.
You should always fly NON STOP to Cancun, otherwise your trip would consume a whole day.
The transportation company will wait for you at the airport with name on sign for prompt transfer to Playa. Click on Cozumel Ferry for Ferry info and schedules. This is for groups of 4 or more. The round trip cost for ground and ferry transportation is about $60 per person. You should allow 3 hours additional time each way You need to save more than $200 per ticket for a group of 4 or more to make this approach worth the hassle. Otherwise we recommend you fly directly to Cozumel especially if your are making connecting flights in the US.
- Air Puddle Jumper to/from Cancun to Cozumel: 15 minute flight, Air puddle-jumper. You should weigh your options and consider how many other connecting stops you are making before incurring the expense of the puddle jumper. It is best to make your connections in the US and fly directly to Cozumel. Otherwise you should fly non stop to Cancun.The Airfare For tourists it’s $63 USD each way.
