Why go to Cozumel

Dive into holidays in Cozumel to discover one of Mexico's most beautiful islands and a destination that has become world famous for diving and snorkelling. The island of Cozumel can be found in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea off the Yucatan Peninsula, on the east coast of Mexico.

This flat and attractive limestone island has been a sunshine and seaside favourite for many years...

Cozumel holidays can be reached either via direct flights into Cozumel International Airport (CZM), or by flying into Cancun and taking a ferry from Playa del Carmen, which is a laid-back resort just a little way south of bustling Cancun.

An abundance of reefs that teem with fish and coral have placed Cozumel on the list of firm favourites with keen divers and snorkellers. The west coast of the island is particularly rich in reefs and the Palancar Reef, in the south west, is one of most beloved. You'll see fish of every colour and shape imaginable, plus turtles, eels and possibly a couple of small reef sharks.

Back on dry land you'll discover that Cozumel's jungle interior has been left untouched while many all-inclusive hotels and resorts line the palm-fringed white-sand beaches. Popular resorts include Playa San Francisco and Playa Palancar, both in the south west of the island.

Holidays here are taken at a much more chilled out and hushed pace than those on the nearby mainland in big resorts such as Cancun. This is a place to get away from it all, and families, groups and couples who appreciate the quiet life will enjoy Cozumel.

There is some nightlife, though the music usually stops by midnight; most evening activities revolve around the island's restaurants and candle-lit tales of the day's adventures on - and below - the waves.

San Miguel de Cozumel is the only big town on the island and many more eateries and shops can be found here. It's an attractive town and well worth a few hours of your holiday time.
