. Also, there is a lot of traffic, so you should have a good watch using experienced sailors.
Again, the pilot charts will answer your questions. I'm sure there are people that have gone from Cozumel to the Grand Cayman Islands and maybe even on the PR. Perhaps they will contribute and you can get some first hand experience. It is not a point of sail that I would choose.
If you have the time, why not make a voyage out of it and see the Bahamas? You can hop down the islands and then head
for PR. Depending on the time of year, you probably would get some northerly winds to help. Of course, this is not the best time of the year to do that trip with hurricane
season in full swing.
