Cozumel Overview

Cozumel is the perfect Caribbean destination for all types of travelers. Shortly after Jacques Cousteau explored Cozumel and its coral reefs, he described it as “one of the best places to scuba dive in the world.”  And after artists experienced the island’s beauty, they immortalized it in paintings seen in museums worldwide.

Cozumel is located off the coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Its airport is listed as one of World War II icons, but the new one offers flights to and from anywhere in the world. Cruise ships frequently include Cozumel on their scheduled stops.

Once you experience Cozumel you won’t want to leave. There are museums, galleries and nature sites to explore. And if you’re environmentally conscious, you’ll appreciate all the work that the Museums’ cultural society is doing for conservation. Cozumel’s marine parks are dedicated to maintaining the equilibrium of its reefs and marine life.

The waters of Cozumel are known for their incredible transparency, allowing for snorkelers to get a clear view of all species of tropical fish. Divers from around the world make a beeline for Cozumel where they know that they’ll find the most amazing coral reefs on the American continent.

History buffs will be most entertained by the displays at the Island Museum. These relate the legacy of the ancient Mayan civilization, as well as that of the Hispanic conquerors. And throughout Cozumel visitors have the rare opportunity to see remnants of archaeological digs and important icons. The most famous is the San Gervasio. Historians explain that this was a most important temple for women to pay their respects to the goddess of fertility.

Cozumel is a first class resort blessed with a sub-tropical climate that allows for tourists to enjoy the island year round. Golf and tennis are the preferred sports of the travelers. Cozumel luxury resorts offer the aid of professional instructors as well as quality courts and courses. Spas are the rave, offering the latest treatments in massage therapy and beauty care.

Visitors won't have to worry about finding a place to spend their money in Cozumel. Retail shops around the island boast excellent selections of souvenirs. They also allow for great buys in hammocks, leather goods, hand made lace, linens, carved wood and handicrafts from throughout Mexico. There are outstanding venues for obtaining great art and one-of-a-kind items. Crafted shell work, black and red coral jewelry and decorative mirrors are items you won’t see elsewhere but in Cozumel.

Unique restaurants are also part of the Cozumel experience. Most venues feature fresh seafood prepared in the style of Cozumel’s traditional recipes. Prime examples include stuffed poblano chile peppers. But don’t go thinking that Cozumel gastronomy is spicy. It offers an array of flavors for the most discriminating palates.
