Cozumel International Airport (CZM)

Located just off the coast of Playa del Carmen, Cozumel is known for its fantastic watersports and a laid-back lifestyle that makes for an ideal island getaway. During Mayan times, Cozumel was a sacred island covered with temples and shrines to the goddess Ixchel. Today, this seaside escape is renowned as an underwater paradise. Even Jacques Cousteau raved about the spectacular coral reefs that encircle the island, including Palancar Reef — a mountainous underwater formation six miles long and 300 feet high that attracts scuba divers and snorkelers from around the world.

Surf & Turf

Even if you are only a little intrigued by the thought of an underwater escapade, Cozumel’s Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park is the place to dive in. With a mix of scuba diving and snorkeling, discover the wonders of the world’s second largest reef as tropical fish pass you by. Here, you and the family can also enjoy a swim with friendly,
energetic dolphins.

Hop aboard the 48-passenger Atlantis Submarine to discover one of the top dive destinations in the world. Or, travelers can also explore the dry side of Cozumel. Visit Punta Sur Eco-Park to see crocodiles in their natural habitat and the oldest lighthouse on the island. And, traverse the Mayan ruins of San Gervasio. 

Nightlife and Shopping Trips

Whether searching for a perfectly crafted drink or a dance partner to salsa with, Cozumel’s nightlife has something for everyone. Stylish lounge bars help cool things off, while night clubs bring the heat. Tour an agave plant to taste different types of tequilas. 

The main shopping area, filled with craft stores, sits along Avenida Rafael Melgar and on the side streets around the plaza. In addition, the town of San Miguel offers excellent shopping and waterfront cafes. Cozumel is a big stop for cruise ships, so the waterfront area of downtown is lined with jewelry stores and souvenir shops. Sterling silver is especially predominant, but make sure its stamped “925” to ensure you’re getting the real deal. A number of stores also offer Mexican folk art.


San Miguel is compact, and easily navigated on foot, with the main square being the center of activity. A taxi is the best way to get around Cozumel, when walking is not an option. Taxis are numerous around town and the hotels. The driver’s union has set fares, so there is no need to bargain. The island is rather small with few roads, so renting a car can be also provide an easy way to explore at your own pace, and a chance to reach some of the more remote beaches.

For a more scenic way to travel the island, passenger ferries run between Cozumel and the pier at Playa del Carmen on the mainland, just about every hour, all day long. In Playa del Carmen, the ferry docks are a little more than a block from the main square. Make sure to check the departure times, especially the time of the last departure returning to Cozumel.

Transfers between the airport and hotels are included with your Cozumel vacation package. The airport is located five miles from San Miguel.
