    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    An island off the coast of south eastern Mexico, Cozumel is a haven of clear blue water, palm trees, white sands, diving and a host of other things that add up to spell paradise. The island’s still one of Mexico’s essential tourist stop offs, despite being all-but flattened by a hurricane back in 2005, and is one of the world’s foremost destinations when it comes to anything underwater. From snorkeling to scuba diving, you’ll find some of the best under-sea views this side of the Great Barrier Reef.

    Scuba diving classes are ample and relatively affordable, with dozens of companies eager to take you out and throw you overboard, and, though the reef is not quite as good as it used to be due to the hurricane, it remains world class. It’s not all about scuba, of course, with swimming with dolphins, glass bottomed boat tours and deep-sea fishing offering alternative ways to enjoy the water that are well worth exploring.

    There’s only one town of any note on the island, San Miguel, and that’s the place to go if you’re shopping for souvenirs, looking to compare water sports prices, or just want an affordable place to stay. The local cuisine (think a seafood-heavy take on Mexican) and abundance of Tequila on offer here is a lot of fun, too.

    Most likely, though, you’ll prefer to spend time making the most of the natural scenery, which includes Chankanaab National Park (lagoons and Iguanas), and even some exceptional surfing off the less populated side of the island. Hunt hard, and you’ll find some small Mayan relics to explore, tucked away in the less fashionable corners of the island.

    Basically, though, Cozumel does exactly what it says on the tin: blends Mexican culture with a Caribbean climate and obsesses endless on all things water sport. Which is certainly not a bad thing, providing you’re ready to make the most of an underwater ethos that’s every bit as enticing as any other you’re likely to find around the Caribbean.

    • Riviera Maya
      Riviera Maya, also known as the Mayan Riviera, is a tourism district following the coastal Highway 307 which parallels the Caribbean coastline of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, located on the eastern portion of the Yucatán Peninsula. This district historically started at the city of Playa del Carmen and ended at the village of Tulum, although the towns of Puerto Morelos situated to the north and between Playa del Carmen and Cancun as well as the town of Felipe Carrillo Puerto situated 40 kilometers (25 mi) to the south of Tulum are both currently being promoted as part of the Riviera Maya tourist corridor.

      The Riviera Maya is famous for its large scale all-inclusive resorts and a historical tourism base of smaller boutique hotels as well as the many fine-dining restaurants available along the highway 307 and on or near the beaches.

      A major attraction throughout the Riviera Maya are coastal and reef aquatic activities dependent on the coastal water and the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System (also known as the Belize Barrier Reef) which begins near Cancun and continues along the whole length of the Riviera Maya continuing southward to Guatemala. This barrier reef system is the second longest in the world.

      Activities at the most visited locations include Jet Skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming in cenotes, swimming with dolphins, zip-lining, horse riding, sailing, and guided jungle tours. Archaeology is also a big tourist draw in the area, including the popular archaeological sites operated by the Institute Nacional de Archaeological such as Tulum on the coast, and Chichen Itza and Coba located some distance inland. The self-named eco parks of Xcaret and Xel-Ha also include some smaller archaeological ruins as part of their attractions, but these natural water theme parks operated by private business consortia attract much larger crowds due to the diversity and range of activities provided, such as swimming with captive dolphins.

      Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico
    • Puerto Morelos
      Puerto Morelos, unlike most of the Mayan Riviera, remains a sleepy little fishing village perfectly suited for lounging on the beach, grabbing a bite to eat in the dusty little village square or enjoying the excellent diving and fishing in the area.

      Lots of American ex-pats wander around and overall, Puerto Morelos feels a bit like going back in time. Situated right off the main highway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos remains an isolated get away spot that is well worth visiting.

      • Very nice caribean Island with great beaches and a lot of watersports activities. Great for diving and snorkeling. Nice people and very safe !
      • Beautiful place to visit. Lots of water sports and the snorkeling is the best. Weather is awesome.
      • Perfect island and great attractions. We did enjoy the views and weather. Lots of fun and souvenir stores. A must-see place!
      • Prices at shops vary, so shop around and negotiate, they will give you a better price if you negotiate
      • Great place! Beautiful water. A must see.
      • We are so sad were leaving once again. This is the only place we take our big vacations at. Great place to relax and rejuvenate.
      • Had a nice day in Cozumel. We did some shopping and had dinner at Three Amigos. Beautiful place and friendly people.
      • One of my favorite places to snorkel, swim, have great fun outdoors all while looking at the turquoise water!
      • Beautiful island. You can rent a car or a scooter and see all the island.
      • This island is truly one of a kind! The people are amazing and so helpful. The food tastes like nothing I've ever had before. The snorkeling is great! My suggestion is to take a snorking excursion at least once and spend many of the other days snorkeling or exploring the island on a moped or something. There is so much to do here, so make the most of it!
      • What can we say? This is our favourite place in Mexico. Be prepared for island time here. Everything is relaxed and a little slower. The virgin beaches are beyond beautiful.
      • Absolutely love Cozumel! If you get a chance to snorkel or scuba- DO IT! Water is beautiful! Sea life is amazing! Saw a pod of baby squid, an eagle manta ray, Reef Shark, a large French angel fish...too many to list! Food is amazing! I recommend sticking to bottled beer or bottled water - but that's just me. Otherwise, stay safe & enjoy! Bring some jellyfish protectant too. Certain times of year, they will swarm in the water and be tiny like bits of pepper. It can sting your skin. They weren't out last time I was there :). But...just in case!
      • Cozumel has grown over the past 24 years but still maintains it magical charms. Visit Casa Denis for authentic Mayan food at great prices. A jeep ride around the island is always a blast if you want some fun and adventure, specially at the Bob Marley bar.
      • Loved it. Our snorkeling tour got canceled due to weather but that didn't discouraged us at all. We rented a scooter and went to tour around entire Island. We went to tequila factory, light house, chilled at the beach area by the light house and went to see other attractions near by. Its a small island and could be completely seen within a day.
      • What a great place, no other place in the world will you find scuba diving, Mexican food, and tequila all in one place. The diving is still wonderful crystal clear water and beautiful coral reefs. The food is better Everytime You Go. I can't wait to go back and enjoy the small piece of paradise on Earth.
      • I adore Cozumel. It's full of run characters, friends people and colourful everything! Great place to holiday or live. You definitely need more than a few days here to see the ruins, go snorkeling, swimwith 🐬 and indulge in heaps of Mexican food!
      • Go to this island! It is so beautiful and the scuba diving here is amazing and affordable. I recommend defiantly go with an all inclusive resort. They do take American currency which is nice, and the airport here was a pleasure to go through. This was the best honeymoon trip ever!
      • The island has great restaurants and some incredible snorkeling sites. El Cielo is a great experience for snorkeling in shallow crystal clear water, white sand bottom full with starfish and rays ir you are lucky. Had a blast
      • Cozumel is magic! From the spectacular turquoise ocean with its famous underwater world, to fresh and wholesome food, to yoga and spiritual opportunities, the omnipresent energy of Ixcel, the Mayan goddess of fertility and abundance, will fill you with joy, purpose, and hope for a better future. These are just a few highlights from our Quiet Transformation self-care retreats.
      • Great place, so much to do and see. Tons of the typical water front toutist places, shops, restaurant, bars, museums and souvenir dives. Water activities both above and below ground. Numerous cruise boats in and out of harbour. Very busy and very fun place. It's a must visit for anyone fond of south east Mexico. Great weather, can be humid, great place to work on your tan.
      • My 2nd cruise to Cozumel & I love it there. The people are very friendly & down to earth. The shops are a lot cheaper there and got a tattoo both times there. Go back again the 1st chance I get
      • Cozumel, Mexico is extraordinary! The people are amazing and so helpful. The food tastes like nothing I've ever had before. The snorkeling is great! My suggestion is to take a snorking excursion at least once and spend many of the other days snorkeling or exploring the island on a moped or something. There is so much to do here, so make the most of it!
      • My friend and I really enjoyed Cozumel Mexico. We enjoyed seeing the ruins there and other sites including the beautiful beaches. We actually hired a private taxi that took us for a ride all the way around the island. We felt it very safe and very affordable it was really well worth the time especially going on our own instead of the tours offered!
      • Love this place. The water is super clear, the sand is white, picture perfect. All inclusive is the way to go, but the local taco places are worth checking out. Highly recommend this place for a beach getaway. Make sure you make it to the other side of the island for the more natural undeveloped beaches.
      • First time seemed very safe and clean. Went to parts if town not recommended but was not bothered by anyone. Would recommend to everyone
      • Awesome experience. We went on an excursion from a cruise. The 4 wheeler experience was amazing. They catered to my wife who was not experienced but was also able to cater to my son who was. We will be back.
      • Arrived by cruise ship the Celebrity Equinox, the port is busy with shops and crowds. We boarded a bus for the Mayan ruins @San Gervasio which were fascinating. We toured the Mayan Cacao Company which was amazing(chocolate is my favorite food group). They explained the history and importance of cacao bean and the processing, we sampled liquid. After that we went to El Mirador beach. Unfortunately it was red flag weather so no go into the sea.
      • This is my favorite place to go in all of Mexico I have been to slot of places and resorts. But no matter what I always go back to cozumel at least once a year. The people on the island are so great you feel welcome no matter where you go. They have a great festival in spring and we have seen car shows this week they had 8 tall ships in port you could go on. We always fish with chichi charters and the diving is amazing every place we have been Beaches are beautiful and clean. My heart is always left in cozumel
