    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 town, take the road that crosses the island to see the ruins at San G. after seeing the ruins, continue toward the east side of the island. The first left after leaving the ruins you can visit the Tequila History Museum. Very interesting and they give you many samples of the variety of tequilas made as well as learning how it is made.

    There are a few companies that will take you out to dive and snorkel. Try visiting http://www.deepbluecozumel.com/ or http://www.diveparadise.com/ for rates. Diving and snorkeling prices vary depending if you need to rent gear, group size, and how long you want to stay out for.

    Most of the hotel beaches in Cozumel are ricky beaches, like the Florida Keys. The all-inclusive resorts on the southern part of the island would have better snorkling. (Wyndham, Iberostar, etc.) You can also stay in-town and take a snorkel trip by boat. One of the best is Mystic Snorkel. The owner has apartments to rent too. I have stayed there several times (I am a diver). All beaches in Mexico are public beaches. So ,you can go to any hotel and use their beach if it looks inviting.

    Chichen Itza is on the mainland. There are excursions that you can sign up at your hotel's travel desk. If you have a car rental, you would have to take the car ferry to the mainland (and back). The roads are safe in that part of Mexico. You may be stopped to have your papers checked. There are not a lot of roads, just the main road that runs from Playa del Carmen to Cancun. Then you would have to drive from Cancun to chichen Itza. There are excursions by bus and by air. Most of the Yucatan is jungle, not a lot of towns.
