Start off your visit on the 31st (Sat): get in on the family fun at Discover Mexico Park Cozumel and then see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find where to stay, maps, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Cozumel road trip site.

Skopje, Republic of North Macedonia to Cozumel is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 6 hours traveling from Skopje to Cozumel.
