Christmas in Cozumel is a great time.  The only drawback is the LARGE
number of cruise ships!!  Eleven at once on Christmas Eve... Highly
recommend renting a car and getting away from downtown when the cruise
ships arrive!  Avis is located at the airport and you can make a
reservation on-line and pick up and drop-off right at the airport.  On

were open so finding food and drink was not a problem.
Accommodations at Hotel Bahia are inexpensive and very convenient.  Rooms
have a full refrigerator and electric stove.  The showers are large enough
to rinse dive gear and there is plenty of hot water.
