#9 of 14 in Beaches in Cozumel
With calm Caribbean waves and a wide stretch of sand, Punta Morena remains a favorite choice for couples and families seeking a relaxing spot away from the rush of San Miguel. Grab a cocktail or your favorite beverage to cool down on hot day, sit back and enjoy the view of the water, or try out some of the food served up by the local vendors. If the current seem a bit too strong for swimming, you can walk around the area and look for a few memorable souvenirs.

    March 2016: Ntro hotel was located on the side of the island facing the ferry port, we were told that the best beaches were located on the side North of the island, at the other end, from the port are 19 km in a straight line until you reach the coast, consisting of 12 km of beach, we reach the first parador Punta Morena , a paradise, its spectacular facilities, but very expensive even to take a bottle of water. The beach is excellent, amazing worth a transparency water enjoy every inch of the place.

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.
