The Mexican island of Cozumel, a popular cruise ship port, is a tropical paradise, complete with world-class scuba diving and snorkeling, ancient Mayan history, a charming town square, unique dining options (and the old favorites like Senor Frogs and the Hard Rock Cafe), plenty of shopping and endless attractions and activites for all ages.
Explore Cozumel's Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the second largest coral barrier reef in the world, at Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park. If what you really want is to spend the day lounging on a white sand beach with a drink in your hand, Nachi Cocom or Playa Palancar are two options. If you'd like to participate in various activities, try Chankanaab National Park or Paradise Beach Cozumel. Maybe you'd like to go ziplining, horseback riding, off-roading or participate in a paintball war. Ecoparque Cuzam offers all of these activities. See the "wild side" (named for the rocky shoreline and big waves) of the island during the Cozumel Bar Hop Tour, where you'll visit four of the best beach bars on Cozumel. Salsa and Salsa, Stingray Beach and Discover Mexico provide unique experiences that you'll never forget.
