There are 2 companies that cross the Caribbean sea, and this is how to take the Ferry from Playa Del Carmen to Cozumel. The companies are called Winjet (orange) and Ultramar (yellow). The boats are very similar. Both of the ferry companies have ticket counters near the ferry pier. We recommend just getting a one-way ticket and then buy a ticket when you are ready to come back.
