Going to Cancun in February. Been there a few times and want to go to Cozumel. Any idea the best and least expensive way to get there. Everyone just wants to go shopping and sight seeing no scuba diving or adventure tours.

Hi Santo! Cozumel is GORGEOUS and the best way to get to there is by ferry from Playa del Carmen.
Its a 45 minute ride from Cancun to Playa and there are a few ways to get there. A taxi is about $65 USD, a private driver whose price will depend on who you choose and you will need to reserve ahead of time, a bus is about $7 USD each way so $14 total and you can always rent a car and drive it yourself!
The ferry in Playa take about 30 minutes to get to Cozumel and leaves every hour except lunchtime at 1 pm.
