    Actually a couple years back they expanded it to 5PM and opened the front end a couple hours to 10 AM.

    That link doesn't point to anything about Sunday alcohol sales. The website it takes me to only talks about the mandatory 11PM last call in bars and clubs with some exceptions.

    Thanks Christi, that may have been a factor. I was looking through a lot of websites quickly a couple of weeks ago when I first perceived this as an issue, so I don't recall the exact sites I was looking at. But perhaps it was that their offices were closed on Sunday and it was not clear that they were still diving on Sunday.

    That's the one; thanks. Alcohol sales laws are always strange. Many years ago my job moved me around the US a lot; the first night in a new town and/or state I would find a quiet bar and sit down and ask the bartender to explain the local alcohol regulations. There were a lot of screwy laws out there.

    A couple I ran into: You could not drink alcohol outside, even on your own property (Carlsbad, NM). At midnight the bar staff stopped selling beer and confiscated all the beer out on the bar and tables, but hard liquor sales continued until 2AM (Jackson, MS). One night in Houston I got thrown into a bar by a bouncer when I carried an open beer out the front door.

    It's good to hear that on Cozumel we don't have to make a Sunday beer run so early in the afternoon, but 3PM or 5PM, the law is weird.

    B double E double R-U-N, beer run... :D

    In Cozumel, it's easy to forget that it is Sunday. Lounging in the pool after the morning dives, it feels just like Saturday.

    Last trip we were doing just that when my gf got a hankering for Clamato. So off to Oxxo I went and was surprised to find the coolers all locked. We had a case of Sol so it wasn't a disaster but stocking up for beer became an immediate after-dive task not a after-we-lounge-around-all-afternoon task.
