Relax, explore or pursue adventure in Cozumel
COZUMEL — Cozumel is Mexico’s “fun capital,” where options include relaxing on the sunny beaches, diving from the reefs or heading to the beaches a bit further north for some deeper dives. In the southern part of the area, serene sands and quiet picnic locations are a family tradition for many visitors to the area.
After exploring the waterfront, visitors in Cozumel like to head over to San Gervasio ruins and explore the ancient Mayan civilization. After that, anyone who enjoys nature can take a hike through the exquisite Punta Sur Ecological Park, where flora and fauna abound.
There is never a shortage of exciting things to do in sunny Cozumel. Palancar Beach, for example, is one of the top water-sport locations in on the island. Diving, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling and more are on tap for those who are aficionados of all things about the water. There are plenty of restaurants and dive charters on hand too, which means that good food and underwater adventures are always within reach.
A taste of Cozumel’s culture is just the thing for adventurous visitors. The Museo de la Isla de Cozumel is the ideal place to learn about the area. There are numerous exhibits that explain the region’s ecosystems, as well as fascinating Spanish and Mayan artifacts from the colonial era.
Stingray Beach is one of the city’s most popular attractions. Zoos, aquariums and swimming pools are just part of the fun. One of the key interactive experiences is the “swim with the stingrays” venue. The harmless stingrays (their barbs have been removed) enjoy swimming along with visitors. This is something that children love and will never forget.
Discover Mexico Park is a unique stop on the must-see Cozumel tour. The park features miniature versions of many of Mexico’s most famous attractions, like the Mayan ruins and the Metropolitan Cathedral of Mexico City. Many visitors say that the park is one of the most educational offerings in Cozumel. It’s perfect for families with young children.
Because Cozumel has some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and friendliest people, there is always something to do, whether it’s a cultural activity, a water sport, a hike or just a lazy afternoon in the sand.
