Ferry to Cozumel

There are two separate ferry companies running ferries back and forth from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel. One ferry leaves 5 to 10 minutes ahead of the other one. Both ferries are more or less the same in comfort, speed and amenities but one is a dollar more per ride.

It does not matter which ferry you take.

Both ferries have refreshments. You can get beer, pop and juices.

Ferry schedules change and each company produces its own published schedules [they are both different] which is why if you do a search on the net for Cozumel Ferry times you will get so many conflicting times. Your best bet is if you are going to Cozumel/Playa del Carmen then simply get to the docks early and buy your ticket for the next available trip as soon as you get there, then sit and wait for the ferry.


There are a number of different places where you can buy your ferry ticket. There are booths on 5th Ave. and more booths close to the docks. Each ferry company has its own booths and they try to out-sell each other.

To our knowledge the ferries are never completely sold out [except the early morning rides because of workers going to Cozumel so you can always get a seat.

In Cozumel you buy a ticket at the dock where you board the ferry. A one way ticket will cost you $110 Pesos or $10 USD. This information is up to date as of April 2006
