Attractions

With its painted garage homages to the Virgin Mary, warm Caribbean spirit, mystic Mayan ruins, and the second largest coral reef barrier in the world, the island of Cozumel, Mexico is a destination that can go from authentic to ancient to exhilarating all within minutes.

Diving and snorkeling the iconic Mesoamerican Reef are certainly the most popular things to do, but Cozumel’s lovely town square is a wonderful place for shoppers, food lovers and nightlife enthusiasts. Hop aboard a rental scooter and follow a coastal road out to the Mayan ruins or just enjoy a breezy ride along the stunning coastline. Plunge into the clear blue waters and witness the magnificent coral reef formations at Palancar, Colombia, the breathtaking walls of Santa Rosa and for the more experienced divers, the adventure of Punta Sur and Maracaibo.
