Have you ever given much thought to what to do when check out is 11am at your Cozumel Airbnb?
This morning, you’re diving into the most amazing breakfast you’ve ever had at Cozumel’s most-recommended restaurant. You’ve just finished a couple of coffees, and you feel you could eat and drink the ocean itself. But when you look at the clock, you realize that it’s almost time to go. You glance at the Airbnb listing, hoping to find a note saying that check-out is at some other time, but no such luck.
If you’re staying at an Airbnb in Cozumel, you might not have thought about the checkout process. You just figured you could pick your checkout time just before your flight. But most Airbnbs in Cozumel have a checkout time at 11 am. This causes many of you to struggle when your Airbnb can not accommodate a late check-out because of the need of cleaning and preparing for the next guests.
There are options for you, though.
If you need your bags held for you, there is a new luggage storage place you can use near the square. They work MON-SAT (9 am to 6 pm) by appointment only. You book online and pay in person when you need your luggage held. HERE
Your 2nd option is to check your bags early at the airport and then head across the street to Diego’s Tacos. While this is a local place, tourists using the airport come here. I recommend eating here if you have a departing flight just to kill time. Out of all the fish tacos on the island, these are the best.
The 3rd option is to use the new lounge at the airport by the gates. They provide complimentary snacks, drinks, comfy chairs, WiFi, and television for the low price of $35 USD for 2 people. It is a Priority Pass Lounge and is a very nice option. The Chase Sapphire Reserve card gives priority pass membership with guest pass included.
You can also book your Airbnb or Condo an extra day if you have a late flight. This costs a bit more, but you will enjoy having the extra time to relax.
5. You can rent a car for the departure day that is on site at the airport. Pack the night before, then get up early and load the car up. This allows you to enjoy a full day around the island and you drop off the car as you arrive at the airport.
