Hello all! :p We are porting in Cozumel in September on our 2nd cruise (Hurricane Dean got us redirected last year to Nassau). I was just curious if anyone has any suggestions as to "exploring" areas where my husband and I can photograph birds and wildlife. We would also like to work in some beach play, but would need to find a place with lockers to avoid walking all the way back to the ship to protect our camera equipment. We really don't want to book any excursions with our cruise line - we just want to "roam" on foot and maybe catch some food and shopping on the way back. My question is this....is the island small enough for us to do all of this on foot (or should we just go to Chakanaab Park for swimming/snorkeling and wildlife trails?) and what time do the shops/flea markets shut down? Any help is appreciated!
