Buying tickets for the Cozumel ferry
Now there are two ferry companies that make the crossing between Playa Del Carmen and Cozumel. All boats are similar. Both of the ferry companies have kiosk near the ferry pier.
Most people just show up and take whatever boat is leaving next. You can buy one way or round trip tickets. There is a small discount buying round trip and saves you from getting in line again to buy another one. We recommend just getting a one way ticket and then buy a ticket when you are ready to come back. That way you are not waiting for a ferry that you already bought a return ticket for or trying to catch a certain time ferry.
How much does the Cozumel ferry cost?
The Cozumel ferry cost about 220 pesos one way or 400 pesos round trip. Basically both are all about the same price and convenience of what boat is leaving next is going to be the deciding factor.
What are the child prices for the Cozumel ferry?
Children 2 years old up until 12 years old are 140 pesos one way or 260 round trip.
One big money saving tip is for locals with proof of ID is get a local ticket price.
How long does the Cozumel ferry take?
The ferry is just over 30 minutes to cross. Boats leave very close to schedule. If there are rougher seas then the crossing can take a little longer. Make sure you get there at least 10 minutes before they leave so you can walk out and get on.
Is there a car ferry to and from Cozumel?
Yes. It is called Trans Caribe but this is totally different than the above mentioned ferry companies. It leaves from the Calica port which is about 10 minutes south of Playa Del Carmen.
There is however no need to take your car over for the day. It is much easier to rent a car while on Cozumel. The price of shipping a car over out ways any benefit to renting a car.
How much is it to take a car on the ferry to Cozumel?
A regular size car is 817 pesos each way. If you are a resident of Cozumel you can pay 380 pesos and if you are a resident of Quintana Roo the price is 500 pesos.
What is the Cozumel ferry schedule for the car ferry?
The ferry crosses 4 times a day except Sundays when it just crosses twice. For exact hours check the link above to Trans Caribe.
