We might be nuts, but we are bringing our two year old twins on a Disney cruise in Oct 2017 that makes stop in Cozumel. We are not sure what the protocol is regarding car seats for travel on the islands? What does other families do?
Your call as to whether you use car seat.
If you want to use a car seat you will need to bring your own. They will not be available in taxis sedans or vans. It is recommended you tip extra to compensate for time taken for you to install in the vehicle. You will need to ask for a vehicle with rear seat belts as many are missing or cut.
I don't know what sort of excursion you are considering but you will need to carry and store the seats when you get there in addition to strollers if you are using them.
If we have wanted to tour the island and visit several places, we have hired a private driver for the day through ToursPlaza to avoid taking our own. Car seats can be requested in advance. ( see their website.)
Other times, if docking at International or Puerta Maya , we have walked to Park Royal to avoid the necessity for transport. We have purchased a AI day pass to use their facilities - shallow kiddie pool, several pools, inside buffet area to rest from heat. Day pass includes food and drink from 11am- 6pm but kids under 4 are free, if I remember correctly and of course no transport costs. All in all a great hassle free day but depends on what you are looking for.
Edit to add:
Just realized you are on Disney, so you will most likely dock in town at Punta Langosta. Park Royal is not really a useful option. You can easily walk to the town and shopping or could walk to do a day pass at Hotel Cozumel but I have no experience with that facility. Not really anywhere with sandy beach within walking distance.
