    Carnival (at least the one I was on last May) drops you off at this little tourist mall with a bunch of vendors and a Senor Frog's. It's not easy (or advisable, really) to leave the fenced in area on foot, but you can take a cab from there if you can find one. I did the 65-foot Catamaran snorkel & beach trip through Carnival. Was it worth $55? No. But we went snorkeling, had a margarita, and finished the day having a sunset beer & sail. And there's nothing wrong with that.

    The weather and water will be lovely . One note-try not to shop when the cruise ships are in as they double/triple their prices for these tourists. We normally go twice a year and dive, but if you do not dive, snorkeling will be amazing for you. We use Dive with Martin and they never have more that 6-8 divers per boat. They also take snorkelers out. Their prices are much more reasonable than the resort charges. Also, since we can't dive for 24 hours prior to flying, we rent mopeds and drive around the island.

    From the sounds of things, you've set your sights on the all-inclusive option. With that in mind, both of the above properties sound pretty sweet, though I'd lean toward the Occidental Grand and its excellent range of kid-friendly amenities and activities. The beach at this resort is better, too. If non all-inclusives are an option, you might look at the Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa, which comes in with high marks from family travelers. The popular Iberostar all-inclusive chain also has a Cozumel property, which might be worth looking at.
