Mexican Heart and Caribbean Soul
Cozumel blends Mexican culture with Caribbean vibes. You can explore its Maya roots in Tulum or discover a secret world of sea life as you snorkel beneath the waves in Chankanaab. And there’s no better way to close out a day of adventure than with an ice cold michelada and a beachside massage at Playa Mia.
Things To Do
Get up close and personal with Maya history at San Gervasio, the largest ancient Maya site on Cozumel, which dates back to as early as A.D. 300.
Dive Into Adventure
At Chankanaab National Park you’ll find everything from snorkeling and scuba to swimming with dolphins.
Reconnect with nature while wandering the endless mangroves, beaches and reefs in Punta Sur National Park during your Cozumel cruise.
Cozumel’s cuisine is dominated by Mexican, American and international cuisine. Fresh seafood is always a good choice and so is the cochinita pibil – a slow-roasted, highly seasoned pork dish. Cool off with a michelada, a refreshing drink made with beer and freshly squeezed lime juice over ice in a chili salt-rimmed glass. Or keep it traditional with Mexico’s signature spirit, tequila.
For great deals and guaranteed stores, walk along the waterfront on Avenue Rafael E. Melgar, a mile-long strip in San Miguel. And be sure to check out the Chile Tequila Factory for a sampling of Mexico’s favorite spirit.
