Cozumel

Cozumel ©
Thanks to the island's outstanding scuba diving and snorkeling options, Cozumel tourism sector remains a major employer and the main source of income for this Caribbean getaway.
Get outdoors at Palancar Reef and Santa Rosa Wall. Discover out-of-the-way places like Fishing Charters & Tours and Punta Sur Eco Beach Park. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Columbia Reef, go deep with a submarine tour, partake in some friendly competition at The Amazing Cozumel Race, and head outdoors with Paradise Beach Cozumel.

Plan my day in Cozumel using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
