Dive into the magic of Isla Cozumel. This jewel of a tropical island rests in the shimmering turquoise waters of the
Caribbean. Just east of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico, the lush jungle life fills the island’s interior while sugary beaches, sunshine, and gently swaying palm trees line the coast. It’s paradise!
Must Do Activities
As the second-largest barrier reef in the world, the Mesoamerican reef offers a massive variety of coral that creates a maze of swim-throughs and walls. Not only is Cozumel known for its beautiful reef, but it also has an abundance of marine life.
Coral Reefs Monument
The sculpture shows two scuba divers that pay tribute to Cozumel’s beautiful reefs. There are over 30 dive sites along the west side of the island.

Best Time To Visit

Know Before You Go
Electricity – There are no adapters required. If you’re visiting from the States, you won’t need to worry about an adapter for your cell phone or computer. Cozumel operates on a 110 V.
Bug Spray – Please be sure to bring it with you! Mosquitos are mostly active in the early morning hours and around sundown.
Water – Although the water that comes out of the faucet on Cozumel is in fact potable, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should drink it. While it’s okay to bathe in, we suggest you use bottled water for absolutely anything else.
Credit Cards – You are able to use your credit cards in most stores and restaurants. Just remember that the charge will be made in pesos and your bank will charge you in dollars.
Money – 1 Mexican Peso equals 0.0549 USD. So, 20 Mexican pesos is about 1 USD.
