Cozumel, Mexico

Carnival Inspiration docked at Punta Langosta, St Miguel, Cozumel. This is the most convenient pier for downtown St Miguel.

Craft Market in St Miguel

Craft Market in St Miguel

The craft market by the main plaza of St Miguel de Cozumel. Here you'll find Mexican crafts, simulated Mayan artifacts, Mexican blankets and everything else Mexican!


Chankanaab Marine National Park

Chankanaab Marine National Park

Chankanaab Marine National Park is situated just south of San Miguel. There's a lovely beach, which offers good swimming and wonderful snorkeling. There's also a wildlife refuge, and a lush botanical garden surrounding an inland lagoon.


Playa San Francisco

Playa San Francisco

A few miles further south of Chankanaab lies Playa San Francisco (also known as Paradise Beach), a beautiful 3-mile stretch of sandy beach. All basic amenities are on offer, including two al-fresco restaurants, a bar, changing rooms, gift shops, volleyball courts, beach recliners, and a variety of water-sports equipment for rent. You will see scuba divers using Playa San Francisco as their start point for the San Francisco reef and the Santa Rosa wall.


Passion Island

Passion Island

Beautiful Passion Island, situated just off the north west tip of the main island, is a short (about 4 mile) ferry ride from St Miguel. This picture-perfect Caribbean island is blessed with idyllic beaches, and is a great get-away-from-it -all. Facilities at the main beach include restrooms, showers, lockers, sun beds, hammocks, pedal boats, and kayaks.


Mayan ruins of Tulum

Mayan ruins of Tulum

Tulum was built by the Mayans between 1200 and 1450, but was abandoned during the Spanish conquest of the 16th century. The ruins stand in a spectacular setting overlooking the Caribbean. Be warned though it can be very hot, and there's little shade on offer. There is a beach though, for a cool and refreshing swim. The ruins are quite a trek from Cozumel, requiring a ferry transfer to the mainland (50 minutes) followed by a coach ride (30 minutes).

Cozumel has long been popular as a scuba diving destination, with the world renown Palancar Reef lying just off shore. But fear not, you don't have to be a oxygen-tank-lugging rubber-suited man to enjoy the reef. Snorkelers too can see the wonderful underwater world of dazzylingly colored fish, and beautiful corals. Alternative possibities are shopping in the local marketplace, dining al fresco at a restaurant, or going a short distance in-land to check out the Mayan ruins.
