    It's about ten miles from the airport to the Wyndham. Your best bet is a taxi, but just be sure to agree on the rate before you leave. For more info, check out Away.com's Family Guide to Cozumel at: http://vacation.away.com/mexico/travel-v2-cid4307-cozumel-cid350262-family-vacations.html.

    I tapped Away.com's family travel expert, Christine Loomis, for help with your questions. Here's what she wrote: "Without question Mexico's best water parks are Xel-ha and Xcaret, both on the Riviera Maya between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, 45 minutes to an hour south of Cancun. These combine manmade and natural features. Both offer dolphin swims, "snuba," snorkeling, and swimming. Xcaret has an eco- and archaeological component and fun swimming along an underground river. At Xel-ha you can kayak, too, and there's an aquarium or "seaquarium." Xcaret's lagoon is like something out of a tropical movie set. If you're looking for more traditional water parks, Puerto Vallarta has Splash and Mazatlan has MazAgua, both with water slides, lazy rivers, pools, etc. Splash also has a few "bungalows" in which families can actually stay, right inside the park. In terms of other places with dolphin encounters, Mexico is chock full of those for that sort of ultimate water park experience: Ixtapa and Cabo both have them, so does Isla Mujeres, and Cozumel offers them at Chankanaab, the wonderful national park on the island.

    You should check out Isla Holbox on the north end of the Yucatan Peninsula. A little more chill here than the mega-resort zone from Cancun south to Riviera Maya. Good windsurfing spot, with exposure to winds blowing through the Caribbean (best September through May). Other cool activities include snorkeling with whale sharks.

    Did you mean "way" instead of "weather"? Of course, the best weather is loads of sun, calm water, and gentle sea breezes! If you meant "way," the Port of San Diego's website (http://www.portofsandiego.org/cruise-ship-schedule.html) lists a year's-worth of departing cruises, most of them headed south to take in ports of call on the Mexican Riviera and including beach hot spots like Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, and Acapulco.
