San Miguel is the capital of Cozumel and a great window on the typical Mexican destination. The city has adapted to the growing tourism, which made it quite busy, full of restaurants, shops and even shopping malls in the center of the city. But everything has preserved the original character of local people. If you dock in Punta Langosta Pier, you will be right in the city as soon you exit the cruise terminal. If you arrive at Puerta Maya or International Piers, than we recommend to ride a taxi for just few minutes and 5 to 10 dollars charge. It's a nice alternative for those not loving beaches and nature, or just looking for an alternative day to find out more about culture, architecture and Mexican lifestyle. Don't forget that restaurants are offering great fresh fish and delicious traditional dishes.
