TIPS OF TRAVELING ATM Machines They are located downtown in the banks. Baggage Always tag your bag with your home address and the hotel/address while you are in Cozumel. It has been known in Cancun (stop over) for baggage to be delayed and sometimes as a result, shipped to your destination. Cameras You'll definitely want to take pictures so don't forget your camera. Disposable cameras are also great and even waterproof disposable cameras for snorkeling. There are lots of camera shops. Sunscreen Just like anywhere else that's tropical, the sun is very hot in Cozumel and sunscreen is recommended, especially for children. Be aware that national ecological parks do not allow lotions in the water. Driving Be sure to understand the local traffic laws. The main hotel strip is a two-way road but the streets downtown are mainly one way. Obey the traffic rules and signs. During high season, the roads are flooded with taxis, scooters, bicycles and rental cars so if you plan to be on the road solo, be on the lookout. Parking Red lines on the street curve means no parking. Parking tickets are becoming more common. Scooters You canâ€™t buy insurance when renting scooters. Having additional insurance is a good idea. Also be careful on the roads because of the heavy and fast traffic. Time Zone Cozumel is in central time zone. Tipping It is customary to tip 10-15% in restaurants. Tipping taxi drivers is not common but is appreciated. In large resorts, tips are included but tipping the maid at the end of your stay is common. For those new to scuba diving, captains (boat driver) should be tipped and even dive masters (especially to those that work for large dive shops). Water Cozumel has a very good purified water system. The large hotels have a complete purified water system but some of the smaller hotels do not. It never hurts to take extra precautions: drink only bottled water or purified water in restaurants.
