  • What to Do ?

    Befitting an island in the warm Caribbean climate, Cozumel has plenty for visitors to do, especially during a 48-hour stayover.

    What island with clear, turquoise waters wouldn’t have plenty of watersports? If you love watersports, or have been dying to try something more than swim or bodysurf, Cozumel offers enough to keep you entertained.

    Snorkel among colorful marine life or hop on a paddle board and try the craze currently sweeping beachside communities everywhere – stand up paddleboarding, or SUP. Once you’re done in the water, lie on the beach and achieve a tan that gives you a healthy glow.

    Have a drink or even dinner at a beachside restaurant while enjoying another gorgeous Caribbean twilight.

    If watersports aren’t your style, there’s much for land lovers, too. Go golfing on beautiful, sun-drenched courses, hike through lush wooded areas, play mini-golf with your family, or walk among the shops in search of crafts, trinkets, or souvenirs.

    Or sit on the beach under an umbrella and cool off with the incoming sea breezes.

  • Arriving in Cozumel by Cruise Ship

    Picture this:

    You’re standing on the deck of your cruise ship, cup of coffee in your hand. The sweater you’re wearing, which you swore you wouldn’t need for a cruise to a Caribbean island, is a welcome buffer to the morning sea breeze whipping across the deck.

    You missed the sunrise by a few minutes, but the rising sun still paints a vivid explosion of oranges, reds, violets, and pinks against the sky canvas to the east, a stark contrast to the still-black sky to the west where mainland Mexico lies.

    With each passing minute, however, the morning sky brightens more, and a smile crosses your lips.

    The pinpoints of light twinkling in the distance signal the ship’s final approach to the port where you’ll be anchored for the next day.

    Welcome to Cozumel.

    Cruises to Mexico mainly depart from ports in the United States. Hotels can be found in every port of departure or arrival such as hotels near the port of Miami, Port Everglades hotels, lodging in Galveston, and hotel rooms in New Orleans and Mobile Alabama.
