Cozumel Island has grown over the years to become one the biggest and busiest cruise ship ports in the world, with over three million visitors stopping off annually on this incredibly beautiful tropical paradise. The island boasts three separate cruise ship piers, the International Pier, the Puerta Maya Pier and the Punta Langosta Pier, as well as the SSA Mexico (ferry) Pier from which thousands of tourists cross from the mainland to relax in Cozumel.
One of the important Cozumel facts to bear in mind is that during the high season months that run from November to April, Cozumel often plays host to more than twenty cruise ships weekly, equating to more than eighty thousand visitors who want to enjoy all the many things to do in Cozumel, including shopping, restaurants and some of the best scuba diving in the world. So plan ahead in order to make the most out of your stay.
Do not forget that the new time zone in this part of Mexico means that Cozumel Island no longer changes its clocks to Daylight Saving Time, affecting the time difference between Cozumel and the U.S., Canada and other parts of Mexico. So grab a map and enjoy this wonderful Caribbean island!
