Has the CANCUN, COZUMEL, RIVIERA MAYA AREA RETURNED WELL ENOUGH FOR US TOURISTS TO RETURN?
When are you planning to return? But the answer, most likely is . . . no, not sufficiently in Cancun and parts of Cozumel but other parts of the Rivera Maya seem able and willing to accept visitors and some of the places operate relatively untouched by the hurricanes.
Your beach has severe damage to it, I just got back. Pics posted

Travel Tips for Isla Mujeres
TAKE A CATAMARAN TO ISLA MUJERES
Many tour companies offer CATAMARAN snorkeling tours to the Island. The itinerary usually includes the boat ride, snorkel gear and lunch & soft drinks. Friends at Tucancun went on a Catamaran Tour and had a great time. The boat went to the southern tip, Garrafon National Park to snorkel and then went to the northern tip, Playa Norte for some shopping.
Rent a Bike
Even on the ferry to the island, the guys on the boat will try to rent you a scooter or if you’re a family one of those golf-sort-of-cars. My option was to get to the island and rent a bike, just to get to the south point…
It’s only USD 2 or 3 an hour… while a scooter is USD 10 or 15.
If you decide to sunbathe and swim on Playa Norte you'll surely notice this guy, walking up and down the beach, with a bag full of coconuts in one hand and a machete in the other hand. And if you don't see him, you'll hear him.
When you buy coconut(s), first he will cut off just the top so you can drik the milk. Later, he will come (or you can call him) and cut the rest into parts so you can eat the inside of a nut.
A Good Cheap Eat
The town market on Guerrero Street offers several food stalls with good and cheap food. I had breakfast at one of these stalls, which has plenty of tables in front lining the quiet street. Breakfasts are quite cheap-- I had a cheese omelet with rice, black beans and tortillas for 25 pesos, or around $2.50 US. Coffee with milk is only 16 pesos. This is a great option if you're looking for an inexpensive but filling meal.
Avenue Hidalgo is kind of the main drag “downtown”. The street reminded me a bit of Bourbon Street in New Orleans, but more charming. It’s a narrow street, lined with tons of shops, restaurants and bars. Balcony’s from the two story buildings overlook the street; and outdoor seating from the restaurants pepper the street. It’s lively, but I never felt like it was too crowded.
