Cozumel is a destination in which many of you, my clients have requested information on. It also happens to be on my personal bucket list for it’s beautiful waters.
Cozumel is filled with rich history and natural wonders. It has beautiful beaches along with an amazing Mayan Culture. If you are visiting Cozumel, you will want to make time to explore the ancient Mayan ruins on the north side of the island. While there you will also want to visit the sanctuary of the fertility goddess Ixchel at San Gervasio. Cozumel is a very easy destination to get to with flights daily from Milwaukee or Chicago airports and most other major hubs. It is a very popular stop for many of the cruise lines departing out of New Orleans and can be found on most Western Caribbean Itineraries.
Cozumel is Mexico’s largest island and is known as “the Land of the Swallows”. It offers some of the most spectacular diving and snorkeling in Mexico with the second largest reef in the world behind Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The reef is one of the destination’s major draws and the big reason I’ve added it to my must do list. If you don’t dive that is ok because Cozumel also offers a lot to those who are looking for fun, sun and relaxation. There is a multitude of options for tours and day trips. It’s each to find items such as, snorkeling, fishing, swimming with dolphins, and catamaran tours. If you are staying in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, or the along the Riviera Maya on Mexico’s mainland, you can arrange a day trip over to Cozumel, as is just off the south east coast. There are ferries that run regularly between Playa del Carmen and Cozumel or an easy intercontinental flight can be arranged.
Cozumel has something for just about every type of traveler.
