Cozumel can either be visited as a day-trip from Playa Del Carmen or as its own vacation destination, and it’s also a common cruise port. While snorkeling and scuba diving are great all throughout the region, Cozumel has some of the best spots to witness magnificent coral reefs. Cozumel is a larger island, and is split between a downtown area and the beach. Activities on Cozumel range from exploring ancient ruins to wildlife and marine life excursions.
You can get to Cozumel by taking a 45-minute ferry from Downtown Playa Del Carmen which runs every hour; flying directly onto the island; or via cruise.
