Quick stop during our day tour of Cozumel. Good food, cold beer - more expensive then we thought it would be, but left full and content.

This is a must stop on the East side. Best food found here. Drinks good too - try the ginormous Pina Colada, but you'd better share ;) Saw lots of seaweed there this time around, but not their fault.

How do you get there for the day? We are taking a cruise and would like to spend the day at Playa Bonita... Can we just get a cab from the cruise port over the Playa Bonita? Once we get there how do we go about getting back to the ship? Thank you, Katie Bailey
