Introducing Isla Cozumel

Cozumel is too resilient, too proud to let itself become just another cheesy cruise ship destination. Leaving the tourist area – and the gringo-friendly souvenir shops behind – you still see an island of quiet cool and genuine authenticity. Garages still have shrines to the Virgin, there’s a spirited Caribbean pathos, and of course there are some tourist things to do – such as diving down to some of the best reefs in the world.

While diving and snorkeling are the main draws, the pleasant town square is a nice place to spend the afternoon, and it's highly gratifying to explore the less-visited parts of the island on a rented scooter or convertible bug. The coastal road leads to small Maya ruins, a marine park and captivating scenery along the unforgettable windswept shore.
