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.
You can buy inexpensive travel booster seats that should work for your 3-year old - I have even seen some that are inflatable!the inflatable bubblebum will not provide a proper seatbelt fit for a typical 3 year old child. Plus, it has a 40# minimum. Other no back boosters will not provide a proper seatbelt fit either. Which in turn means that they are equally unsafe whether they are in the car without any booster/seat or in a no back booster.
I did not use a seat belt when I was a kid back in the stone ages and have the scars to prove it!
Most people don't even think about bringing a booster or a car seat with them for travel, and definitely not for taxi rides in foreign ports....
Our friend never brought so much as a booster for their then 3 yo on any of the cruises. Our very first cruise together included Cozumel and a 20 minute taxi ride.
Don't have young kids but if you check Amazon, there are some options to BubbleBum. There's a backpack seat that gets high marks for around $35. And others. This may be a way to go.could you please provide a link? I can't think of anything that is a "backpack seat for $35".
