Things to do...
Cozumel is the Caribbean island just off the Yucatan Peninsula in southeastern Mexico. It has great beaches, nice people, and safe streets, with reasonable prices. Situated less than an hours drive south of Cancun International Airport, the Mayan Riviera paradise of Cozumel is easily reached from many international desitinations.
Most travelers head to Cozumel for diving along the shallow reefs and relaxing on the beach; experienced divers tend to migrate toward the northern beaches, while families looking for quiet sands and calm shores seek beaches toward the south. Land-loving travelers can explore what the Mayans left behind at the San Gervasio Ruins, or take a hiking trip through the Punta Sur Ecological Park - Check out the map below

So what are the best things to do in Cozumel Mexico? Cozumel is a very large island, one of the largest islands in Mexico. Since Cozumel is one of the safest places in the world, it gives way to endless possibilities. Chances are your visiting Cozumel for a week or so, and you will never be able to experience all that Cozumel has to offer... However, it is very important to do your homework before traveling to Cozumel, so you may learn about the best things to do. Cozumel is a very popular island and has cruise ship traffic so some tours can be booked in advance, but unless you are going to typical pier side tourist traps, the island never feels crowded.
Some of the below are just a snap shot of activities in and around Cozumel and the Yucatan Peninsular. We highly reccomend exploring the wild windway side of the island in a Jeep (or harley), trying your hand an some surfing (boards are available to rent at some of the beach clubs), see some of the Mayan ruins (if a day trip to Chicken-Pizza is not your style, Cozumel has its own ruins at San Gervasio) and relax at one of the many beaches on Cozumel's west coast (San Francisco beach, or Palancar Beach). Watching the sunset with a cold Corona (and some Mariachi) is some magical in Cozumel...
Cozumel fishing charters are hard to come by during peak sport fishing season and you're about to learn why. Everyone knows that deep sea fishing is one of the most exciting ocean-going activities there is throughout the world. But there are very few locations in the world where sport fishermen can take a fishing charter and have the chance of a grand slam day ~ which means to catch all four species of billfish in one day. Deep sea fishing in Cozumel provides just such a fishing opportunity. Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish and the night feeding Swordfish can be caught right here in the warm tropical waters surrounding Cozumel. Cozumel is also host to some of the finest sustainable eating fish as well such as Mahi-Mahi and Wahoo.
Since Cozumel’s world-reknown deep sea fishing charter fleet has been active for over 30 years, some fishing charter operators offer not only deep sea billfishing but shallow water bonefishing as well as bottom fishing. Cozumel fishing charters offer deep sea fishing or sport fishing charters for beginners to experienced anglers. Experience is not required! Most all fishing charter operators in Cozumel are family-friendly and children are welcome so make it a big family day adventure!
During the high season of Cozumel fishing (March through July) you can expect to catch Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sail fish (these are catch and release only), Dolphin and Tuna. Year round, expect to catch Wahoo, Barracuda, Mackerel, Amberjack, and Snapper. We also support only keeping a minimal catch, and that the fish kept are of a sustaibly edible species. Limit your catch, dont catch your limit! We also do not condone any sort of Shark fishing.
