  • This place is not cool to go to unless you’re going to a festival or tour. We came on our own and it was creepy and did not feel right. And we paid to enter. The guy at the front rubbed his hands toge...  more »
  • Have visited El Cedral during festival time and it is a rocking place. Lots of music, local entertainment, happy people, food, dancing..make it a point to stop and at least see the area even if there ...  more »
  • If you're into ruins and archaeology, this is a great place to check out. Does involve quite a lot of walking, so wear comfortable walking shoes + take water + allocate enough time (takes over 2.5 hou...  more »

  • Cute little shops, but make sure you talk the prices down. Items are about three times more than the same stuff for sale near the ferry. Also, the ruins were not very abundant and not worth the drive out solely for the ruins. However, the tequila factory and tour is a lot of fun, and I loved the atmosphere of the town, as well as its people!
  • Nice place. The archaeological site is little but interesting. As in many other parts of Mexico, be careful to beggars who are everywhere!
  • Small. Not much going on except for souvenirs and tequila factory, which has some really good aged tequila. Historically interesting. Nice residents.
  • The ruins here are very small, one little Temple and a church. We dove around the small little town and it was great to see and get a feel for their culture there. Do not pay the guy coming in for parking it's a scam, drive 30 more feet and park closer for free! It is a cute little town square with all your shops selling mostly the same stuff you see everywhere. The people we talked with were very friendly and nice. We did most of our shopping here as the people were great to deal with. Talk with them for a while and they will give you some great discounts. It's a great little place to stop and see!
  • Slightly off the beaten path and we had to pay to use the bathroom but it's a great little spot to visit! They had some really good prices on jewelry in the area! Worth the drive!

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.
