The cost of the Ultramar Ferry is about 160 pesos return I believe.
We are not going to be there until Sunday March 1 now. Decided to stay in PDC an extra night as we do not get our Isla house until Sunday at 3pm.
Tuesday might be a good touring day.

No we have never been to Isla, should be fun. Yes the bus adventure, almost as fun as having to leave Carol on Cozumel because we spent all our cash and only had Amex card.

We're in for 2/22-3/1- but we're staying in a condo in Puerto Morelos this year. Traveling w/ a 2 year old- I guess we didn't learn our lesson last year.

You’re going to love Puerto Morelos Sara, the beach is absolutely beautiful, the restaurants are fabulous and cheaper than the Playa prices. This time your baby will be two so it’ll be easier Where are you staying in PM?

Your trip reports helped convince us to go there We're staying at Abbey del Sol north of town.

I'm sure I'll have questions for you guys- like can we make do w/ basic groceries at the store in town? Looking for things like eggs, milk, cheese, juice, fresh fruit and veg, bread- simple stuff. Really not interested in dragging an active toddler to Playa or Cancun to shop for groceries.

There is a general store in the main square called Casa Martin that sells the basic grocery items mentioned as well as beer, wine, etc.
That kept us going for the week although we ate all of our dinners out.
There is also a couple OXXO stores and a fruit and veggie market that sets up beside the church just can't recall how often. You could also drive or take a taxi or bus across the highway into town for even more selection, but we found Casa Martin adequate for our needs.

We as well found everything we needed at Casa Martin...we also took a cab over to the Colonia but found the grocery selection to be only slightly more varied......sonofdob

We love a good festival- does any of it happen during the day, or is it mostly at night? Music, in particular, would be most appreciated by our littlest dancing fool
