Things to Do in Cozumel

Cozumel is a Diver's paradise but there's lots to do here!

Tour the town:

Rent a car or get a taxi for the day and tour the East side.

Go to the square downtown on Sunday night for good things to eat and free music.

Shop for silver or anything else here.  The locals EXPECT you to bargain with them.  Go ahead and make your best deal!

Tour the chocolate factory at Chocolates Kaokao.  Josue and Mari will tell you AND show you the history of chocolate and help you make some by hand.  Of course then there are many types you can buy!
You can call or email and set up a tour for $10/person - check their website:  http://www.chocolateskaokao.com/
Check our map page for their location - a bit hard to find but well worth it!


Visit the National Parks:  You can buy a week long pass downstairs at the Museum that gives you access to all the parks on the island that are run by the government, as many times as you want during that week for one low price.  At last check, they were $35 USD per person.  These include El Museo de Cozumel, Chankanaab, Punta Sur, & San Gervasio.

El Museo de Cozumel - a museum on Melgar with exhibits that change every few months that showcase local artists and themes.  They also have a second floor restuarant that serves breakfast and lunch with a killer view of the water. 

Visit the ruins at San Gervasio.


Go to the East side and watch the sun rise.
Go down towards the South and watch the sun set.


Snorkeling / Beaches: There are many beautiful beaches and places to snorkel if you are not a diver.

Near the condo: You can walk to the beach - head toward the water (1 block down) and go a block or 2 to the right to a public beach.

Going south: There are many beach clubs down south. If you are planning to snorkel, stop at Money Bar or Playa Corona for some GREAT snorkeling in shallow water. These are both free entrance spots but you are expected to buy some drinks and snacks while you are using their chairs and facilities. We look for the beaches that are less crowded. For less people, we prefer Playa Palancar if you just want to relax on the beach.

All the way south: Punta Sur lighthouse and eco-park. There's an awesome beach here and a reef just off shore. It costs $12 to get in but is well worth it if you have all day to spend here or get a Cozumel All Parks pass (see National Parks above!)

The East side: There are many places to stop on this side for a drink and to sunbathe. Snorkeling and swimming in the water are not recommended here unless there is a Norte on the west side due to the strong undertow. Playa Bonita is a sandy respite and you should stop at Punta Morena for hammocks, a pool, and beach massage. There is a reef close to shore off of Punta Morena but again, is only recommended if the Norte is present on the other side.


Get on a boat:

There are charters for just about anything: dinner cruise, pirate cruise, catamaran tour, snorkeling by boat, and deep sea fishing!

For fishing, we like the Kay Kib.


For a tri-maran tour with lunch and snorkeling, we loved the Tucan.
