Cozumel International Airport (CZM)

Located just off the coast of Playa del Carmen, Cozumel is known for its fantastic watersports and a mellow lifestyle that makes for an ideal island escape. During Mayan times, Cozumel was a ceremonial center covered with temples and shrines dedicated to the goddess Ixchel, as well as a commercial port for trade. Today, the island 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. Whether you’re in search of extreme adventures or some peaceful beach time, Cozumel might just be your perfect vacation destination.

Enjoy Life Day And Night

With its Mexican heart and Caribbean soul, Cozumel appeals to all sorts of travelers. Visitors will discover natural wonders, ancient traditions and the island’s only town, San Miguel. In San Miguel you’ll find restaurants and boutiques selling unique souvenirs, jewelry, Mayan handmade crafts and folk art. Take a seaside stroll along the charming boardwalk, full of sculptures and monuments. Despite being the main tourist destination of Cozumel, San Miguel still retains a sense of laid-back tranquility, and is easily navigated on foot.

As for watersports, the sea’s remarkable clarity allows travelers to view one of the world’s largest reef systems, teeming with tropical fish and marine life. Whether you are a pro-diver or a first-time snorkeler, the island is sprinkled with accessible sites perfect for exploration. Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park is one great place to dive in. For a different way to see the reef, hop aboard the state-of-art, 48-passenger Atlantis Submarine, which dives down 100 feet for a narrated view of the wildlife living in the deep. A myriad of marine creatures appear through large viewports: fish, lobster, rays, sharks, turtles and more. The vessel is battery-powered, air-conditioned and free of any pressure issues.

Exploring Cozumel by land is also a great option. Visit Punta Sur Eco-Park to see crocodiles in their natural habitat and the oldest lighthouse on the island. You could also traverse the Mayan ruins of San Gervasio, or tour an agave production plant to taste different types of tequilas. More activities for adventuresome sightseers include off-road truck tours, ATV jungle trails, delightful dolphin encounter programs and sea turtle sanctuaries. For a slower pace, try the lush botanical gardens and enchanting lagoons.

If you’d prefer to escape the tourist areas, no worries, because on this small, 249-square-mile island, roughly six percent is actually developed, leaving a jungle-like interior and deserted beaches for rest and relaxation. Cozumel provides blissful isolation if you wish, or plenty of chances to socialize. 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 nightclubs bring the heat.
