If you enjoy white sand beaches and clear Caribbean water then Cozumel is the port for you! At 28 miles long and 10 miles wide, Cozumel is Mexico’s largest island. Located off the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Cozumel is rated as one of the top 2 diving destinations in the world because of its incredible coral reefs and soft, white sand. This popularity is credited to Jacque Cousteau, who brought attention to the island in a series of documentaries he made in the 60s.
The question you will have to ask yourself when planning your day in Cozumel is not, “What is there to do?” But instead, “How will we do it all?” If you are active and looking for some fun, Cozumel offers unbelievable Snorkeling, Diving, Sailing, Fishing, Kayaking, Horseback Riding and much more.
