Top 5 Things To Do In Cozumel, Mexico


1. Snorkeling/Diving

Cozumel is one of the world’s top diving and snorkeling destinations because of its clear waters, bright coral reefs, and over 200 fish species. Whether you are an experienced diver or a beginning snorkeler there is an experience for you that will leave you in awe. Chankanaab National park is a hot attraction and is great for a half or full day of diving or snorkeling. It is the island’s most popular attraction however, so if you are looking for something a bit more secluded try a diving or snorkeling excursion from Cruise Excursions.




Cozumel has a lot to offer, but most visitors just stick to the West side of the island. By renting a car or jeep you can take a day trip around the entire island and visit the the East side which has 7 miles of secluded beach and ocean. You can visit small restaurants and bars with very few people around and enjoy your drink on an empty beach. There is a lighthouse you can climb up to with amazing views and a jungle that you can explore if you are feeling more adventurous . Renting a convertible or jeep and cruising with the wind whipping your hair is a fun way to fully experience the Island. Be sure to check out Mezcalito’s for their delicious fresh fish and some awesome coconut drinks.



Take a tour of the tequila making process while learning the different types of agave and how they come to create Mexico’s signature alcohol. After the tour enjoy a tequila tasting that might just make you want to head on over to the gift shop and buy a bottle or two.

4. Take An Excursion

Cozumel has great beaches and some relaxing all-inclusive resorts that you could easily spend all of your trip at, but the Island offers so much more. There are several excursions that you could take depending on your interests. ATV through the jungle, take a diving tour, join a submarine expedition or embark on an off road Mayan adventure. If you have a full day, take a ferry from Cozumel to the mainland and visit one of the seven wonders of the world, Chichen Itza, or some of the beautiful centotes and caves in the area.


5. Visit Tulum

With a short ferry ride across the caribbean you can head to a truly unique piece of history, the ancient city of Tulum. The Mayan city built in the late thirteenth century is located on the coast of the Yucatan peninsula. Tulum was one of the last cities built by the maya and was used for heavily for trade of turquoise and jade. It has 39 foot cliffs that drop down to gorgeous beaches below and is protected by a wall that surrounds the entire city. It’s definitely worth the trip if you want to experience the history of the Mayans and see beach ruins.
