Cozumel packs a lot of adventure into one tiny island. Your time here could include snorkeling in crystal clear waters, scaling ancient Mayan ruins, feeling your tension float away during a beachside massage, feasting on fresh-caught seafood, finding incredible bargains along the famous Avenue Rafael E. Melgar, or simply sipping on a refreshing beer-and-lime-juice michelada while relaxing on a warm, white-sand beach.

Cozumel

With so many options, it’s best to have a game plan before you visit. So we asked our Travel Leaders agent what their clients love to do most on Cozumel, and here are their answers.

With so many options, it’s best to have a game plan before you visit.

SUBMARINE EXPEDITION

Thanks to the high visibility, snorkeling is a major draw in the warm waters surrounding Cozumel. For those who wish to dive a lot deeper into the wild, underwater realm, our agents suggest taking an Atlantis Submarine journey down into the depths. During this eye-opening expedition, you’ll have a window-seat view of dazzling fish, turtles, sharks, the Cozumel Reef Wall and incredible dive wrecks.

 

CENOTE DISCOVERY

The Yucatán Peninsula is more than just beaches and colorful coastal towns. Fascinating geological features abound in this area, and you can easily explore one of the most famous—Chaak Tun Caverns—while in Cozumel. An underground world held sacred by the Mayans, the Chaak Tun cenote is framed wondrously by stalactites and stalagmites, giving your refreshing dip in its hallowed waters an otherworldly sensation.

LOCAL FLAVORS

One of the best things about visiting a foreign destination is discovering the foods and flavors that define its culture. This is especially fun in Cozumel thanks to its two defining staples: chocolate and tequila! Discover how crucial chocolate was to the region’s historic culture at the Mayan Cacao Company, where you can see it manufactured and taste some delicious samples. Or visit Tequila Place to learn about the beverage’s long history, watch it get made and sample several tempting variations.

UNIQUE RUIN EXPERIENCES

When you visit the Yucatán Peninsula, visiting its unprecedented collection of Mayan ruins should be high on your list. While there are numerous ways to tour these sites, Travel Leaders agents like to recommend two unique ways. For those with little kids, you can play a round of laser tag in a jungle maze filled with Mayan ruin replicas, which also teaches you about the culture as you play. For those who do not suffer from acrophobia, you can take a private Cessna flight over the ruins of Chichén Itzá, landing with a certified guide for a personal tour of this amazing ancient city.

All of these amazing experiences are actually shore excursions offered by Royal Caribbean.
