The best way to have a phone in Cozumel is to buy a cell phone ($350 pesos is low price) that comes with 100 minutes.
If you need more minutes, you can stop at any OXO Convenient Store or telcel store to get more minutes on yoyur phone.
To call a local number, you just dial the seven digits. To call a cell phone, dial 044, then 987 and then the number. 987 is Cozumel's area code.
Long distance phone calls
Long distance telephone centers are everywhere. The rate is posted, and the operator will dial for you. Most of them have a small closet for privacy.
Remember, Mexico has one of the highest long-distance service billings in the world, so try to avoid making phone calls.
Cozumel has many internet cafés that offer internet access, good computers in air conditioned rooms, and sometimes good coffee.

They offer ordinary postal services: sending mail, certified mail, etc. The Mexican postal system is not as fast or acurate as the American postal system. Many homes don't have actual addressses. You'll hear stories from residences in Cozumel that they got Christmas cards months or even years later!!! It will be interesting for visitors to mail themselves a postcard, and see how long it takes.
