Cozumel Island is about 30 miles long, 9.9 miles wide, and is recognized as Mexico’s largest Caribbean island, largest permanently inhabited island, and the country’s third-largest island, following Tiburón Island and Isla Ángel de la Guarda. A quick ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel will take about 40 – 45 minutes.
Temperatures tend to remain stable with little variation from month to month, and it is because of this fact alone that Cozumel is filled with endless adventure potential. Of all the things to do in Cozumel, dune buggy tours and jeep safaris are the most popular inland activities, while snorkeling and scuba diving remain prime activities in the surrounding waters that are home to an incredible variety of tropical marine life, coral reefs, spectacular rock walls and endless visibility.
Visiting Chankanaab Park is also a must. The park’s name comes from the native Mayan language and means “little sea”. Located inside this National Marine Park one can enjoy relaxing on the beautiful beach or spend the day either scuba diving or snorkeling in the Caribbean Sea while admiring schools of tropical fish, colorful reefs and underwater statues. Stop by the crocodile exhibition or the sea lion show, or perhaps relax with a massage in front of the lagoon that gives the park its name.
Cozumel is a versatile vacation spot away from the commercialized resort scene of Cancun that offers a range of adventure options for the entire family.
