Cozumel’s white-sand beaches are the hatching ground of marine turtles, the launching pad for peerless scuba diving, and a sunset promenade for romantic strolls from luxurious resorts on the waterfront.

Day 1: Cruises & Water Activities

Cruises sail to the snorkeling grounds off Cozumel, focusing on the island’s famous coral reefs and underwater canyons. Head out for a day of diving at a choice of 100 world-class dive sites, or time your snorkel for a sunset sail with margaritas and music. Newbies can learn to dive with a discover diving PADI course, and if you don’t want to get your feet wet there are glass-bottom boat cruises and underwater submarine tours.

Day 2: Wildlife Watching

Cozumel is a birdwatcher’s haven, providing habitats for migrating ducks, flamingos, herons, egrets, ibis, falcons and kestrels. Like us humans, dolphins are drawn to Cozumel’s crystal-clear waters, and a dolphin swim promises a one-on-one interaction with these lovable creatures. Loggerhead sea turtles nest along the island’s beaches, and feed on Cozumel’s sea grass meadows. Horseback-riding trips into Cozumel’s rainforest heart reveal the island’s cenotes, picture-perfect bathing pools designed by Mother Nature.

Day 3: Mayan Culture

The neighboring Yucatan Peninsula is renowned for its 2,000-year-old Mayan sites, with the most famous at Chichen Itza and most convenient at Tulum, easily visited on a day trip from Cozumel. Overlooking the beach, Tulum’s well-preserved, mysterious fortifications invite exploration and plenty of photos. Nearby, the Mayan ruins at Xcaret form part of the eco-park’s entertainment, and ancient Mayan walls surround the Xel-Ha water fun park. On Cozumel, the largest archaeological site is San Gervasio with its collection of temples. The lookout tower of Castillo Real looks poignantly over the Caribbean and there are evocative ruins in the Punta Sur Ecological coastal reserve.
