Beware - ATM at Cozumel port compromised!
Christmas week 2013 I took a cruise from Fort Lauderdale, FL that included a stop in Cozumel, Mexico on 12/26/2013. While there I made a withdrawal from an ATM at the duty-free shops at the cruise port (International pier). A week or so after my return home, unauthorized ATM withdrawals and fees from several locations in Mexico began to appear on my bank statement (amounting to several thousand dollars!). Wanted to warn people about this issue. Please be careful. If you need cash while in Cozumel, get it from the ship's ATM, do not use the ATM in the duty-free shop area!

Thanks for the heads up, good info....We are still hearing about the problems with credit cards and Target...When going on a cruise, I never use an ATM anyway, either carry enough cash and just one major credit card...

I hope you get this straightened out ASAP....let us know...

I would use only official bank ATM's. Then remember, you will be charged in MXP.
