Cozumel

Scuba & Snorkeling · Outdoor Activities · Reefs
Thanks to the island's outstanding scuba diving and snorkeling options, Cozumel tourism sector remains a major employer and the main source of income for this Caribbean getaway. Despite its popularity with international visitors, this island manages to resist the temptation to become yet another Cancun-like destination. While most tourists spend most of their vacation in Cozumel in the town of San Miguel, savvy travelers head to the less-frequented parts of the island on a bicycle or rented scooter. Away from the main tourist areas, quiet coastal roads lead to nearly forgotten Mayan ruins, wild natural parks, and secluded beaches on the windswept seashore. With our international travel planner, Mexico vacations can be built around trips to Cozumel and other destinations in Mexico.

Where to stay in Cozumel

Most accommodations in Cozumel line the island's western shoreline, offering excellent beach access and the airport. Avenida Rafael E. Melgar provides the widest range of hotels and private rentals, with some of the more spacious and relaxed options sitting around 10 km (6.2 mi) south of the town center. Budget-conscious travelers should look to the main township, where a selection of smaller guesthouses and pensions can be found just a few streets back from the beach.
