    I started going to Cozumel almost 20 years ago and it was too far to walk for me then. Ask the hotel clerk how much a taxi is to the square downtown, agree on that price with the driver before boarding, and enjoy your vacation. It won't be much, much cheaper in Pesos than USDs.

    I don't see any hours on their site. Google maps claims 5 pm until midnight, but Tripadvisor says 5 am until 10 pm. Do you know? Oh, their FB page says 3:00 PM - 8:45 PM, I guess it varies with seasons.

    Spray early and often.

    Oops, I meant to say the opposite, as paying with Peso almost always is cheaper, and taxi drivers can give the worst conversion rates.

    I took a taxi to town and my look at the zone charts said was $70. I gave him a $100 peso And got out with the intent of calling it even since he was so friendly. He called out amigo and I thought uh oh here we go, and then he held out my change. I kid you not.

    That is unusual!! Very nice. I've read many stories about cabs. Overall, we have had good experiences. I did have a conversation with a cruise passenger I met one day who had paid a ridiculous price in dollars...

    Pancho's is now open, I think their first day was earlier this week, like maybe Monday. We had dinner there last night, and it was very good. They're actually sitting most of the diners outside the front door on a new patio that they've constructed. Makes for a very good view of the water while you're dining although you need to be comfortable with the Melgar traffic being just a few feet away from your table. They also have a couple tables inside for those who want a/c (or no traffic noise).
