Island of the Swallows

Cozumel is a heavenly island where tradition, joy and Caribbean taste blend in together. At Cozumel you will always find a gentle and warm welcome which will make your visit unforgettable.  Cozumel is world famous because is part of the Great Maya Barrier Reef, a system that extends from the Northern Yucatan to Honduras and is the second largest in the whole wide world! This joyful island offers a great array of activities and excursions such as diving, sport fishing, snorkel, kayaks, swimming with dolphins, etc.

Cozumel … What to expect?

Cozumel is Mexico’s third biggest island, the ideal destination for those couples wishing to enjoy a loving honeymoon or just a romantic getaway having the stunning sunsets as scenery. You can walk the white sand beaches, sit on the beach under the moonlight, swim on the turquoise color ocean or enjoy romantic afternoons with a candle light dinner.     

There are hotel zones such as Playa Norte (north beach) and Zona Sur (south zone), where you will find gorgeous Resorts facilities to enjoy every moment of your visit. There is also the Chankanaab (meaning “small sea“) Lagoon which offers a beautiful beach, but what you’ll stop here for is the snorkeling (or diving). You can jump right in and explore limestone caves which lead to the lagoon. Chuck full of thousands of tropical fish, Chankanaab is a must see. There’s a botanical garden here as well which has the region’s most representative flora.

When is the best time to visit Cozumel?

High season in Cozumel begins December 15th and on until Easter and “Spring Break”. However, based on the weather conditions, the best time to visit Cozumel is between February and April which coincides with the Mexican most popular vacation season.  If you wish to avoid the +100 F that Cozumel brings in the summer, you may want to choose winter season to visit, the weather is ideally cool from November and thru January.
