Vacations in Cozumel

Cozumel, also known as the Island of Swallows, is famous for its beautiful beaches, turquoise waters, and colorful coral reefs that attract thousands of scuba divers from around the world. It is the busiest cruise ship port in all of Latin America, and tourism drives the local economy. Furthermore, it’s one of the few places along the Caribbean coast of Mexico where you can see the sunset from the shore.

This wonderful destination is also a shopper’s paradise, with Duty Free stores specializing in jewelry and perfume lining the Malecon, or boardwalk. With a Mexican heart and Caribbean soul, this small island will captivate your senses with its quiet streets, friendly people, and spectacular natural beauty.

Diving and Snorkeling

Diving and snorkeling in Cozumel

Scuba diving is one of the most popular activities on the island, and the underwater world of Cozumel is truly amazing. It’s here that you’ll find the second longest barrier reef in the world, after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Stingrays, manta rays, sea turtles, colorful tropical fish, and a variety of coral make up the incredible landscape at the bottom of the sea. 

Snorkeling in Cozumel is a more relaxed way to get to know the diverse marine life of the island. Head for any of the beaches on the island’s west side where you’ll find calm, clear waters perfect for snorkeling. You’ll be amazed by how many fish you can see just a few yards from the shore!
