The wonderful island

Cozumel derives from Kùutsmil (meaning: “island of the swallows”); it’s the largest of the Mexican Caribbean islands and the third largest island in Mexico after Isla Tiburón and Isla Ángel de la Guarda. This Caribbean treasure is very famous among either elite and popular tourism, being an important hub for cruisers.

San Miguel represent the main center of Cozumel, with about 77,000 inhabitants. White beaches and incredible colored sea water surround the coastline. Thanks to the particular ecosystem that exists here, there’s a perfect environment for corals. Beside that, the inner part is almost entirely covered by dense vegetation and mangrove forests.

Finally we want to stress that visiting this place with a cruise ship, will require to choose carefully what to see and do. In fact Cozumel is just extremely various and the choice can be hard! 🙂

What to see & what to do

Beaches

El Mirador Beach

30 min by car from the Cruise Port. Playa El Mirador is located on the south east coast of the island, just south of Playa Chen Rio and Punta Morena. The place it's exposed to the prevalent windward side (facing the wind). That's why we recommend to come here during beautiful days, in order to enjoy its full beauty. The beach sandy but once entering in the water, the bottom is rocky.

Palancar Beach

Playa Palancar is located south west of the Island, and it can be reached in 15 minutes by car from the closest cruise port of Puerta Maya; or 5 minutes more from the other terminals. Named for the famous Palancar Garden Reef, this beach it's a good option to get away from the crowd. While access is free, there are instead fees for tables, chairs, loungers.

Paradise Beach of Cozumel

5 to 10 min by car from the cruise port. This beach is packed with services and comforts. It offers sun chairs, water games, restaurants, bars and family services. There is also a big pool just behind the beach that you can choose to relax during those windy days, when the sea maybe is not so smooth. All together with the classic Caribbean white sand and palms which make it one of the favorite spot for tourists.

Playa Chen Rio

30 Min by car from the Cruise Port. The surf that hits this beach is interrupted by a series of large rocks, therefore, there is a fairly sheltered water at a depth of less than two meters. Swimmers and snorkelers will appreciate the sea and there are lifeguards. A small rocky island is located just offshore, which is fun to explore. As with all the beaches on the east coast, Playa Chen Rio is almost never crowded.

Playa de Isla Pasion

30 minutes drive from the cruise port. Located on the north side of the Island, the beach of Isla Pasion measure less than a mile in length and it's a romantic spot for couples. The landscape its very unique with lots of Caribbean palms and white sand beach. More over also turtles can be spotted and many bird species are populating this unique place.

Playa El Cielo

Among all the stunning sandy beaches all over Cozumel, we consider Playa El Cielo to possibly be the best one. First of all is not accessible by car since no street are reaching this area. Only boat tours allow tourists to enjoy this spectacular place; in this way the beach is never overcrowded and the nature is perfectly preserved. Crystal turquoise waters host amazing starfishes and stingrays to admire. Finally it really feels like paradise and it's very family friendly from kids to grandparents.

Playa Mia Gran Beach Park

15 min car form the cruise port. The beach park is located further south of the similar Paradise Beach, with even more activities. It has in fact lots of thing to do for all ages and enjoyable for families. There are 200-foot long waterslides, a floating obstacle course, a kids' pirate-themed water park, a underwater "sunken" Maya village, kayaks and more activities. With additional costs you can experience parasailing and wave runners.

Playa Punta Morena

30 Min by car from the Cruise Port. This beach is located in the middle of the east coast, just north of the other beauty "Playa Chen Rio". Playa Morena is a beautiful stretch of fine white sand. Being on the prevalent easterly wind side, during windy days the sea breaks long wild waves. Eventually you can admire the beautiful sound and sight, rather than swimming. Deck chairs and refreshments are available at the local beach club, where there is also a small swimming pool. Visitors here can discover as the east coast is quieter than the west coast; Punta Morena is never too crowded and it certainly deserves some time.

Park & Landmarks

Celarain Lighthouse in Punta Sur

30 min by car from the Cruise Port. The Celarain lighthouse (Faro de Celarain) is located on the headland of Punta Sur (Punta Celarain) and is part of a nautical museum. Just north-east of it lies the Caracol (Tumba del Caracol), a Mayan building erected during the post-classical period. There is a persistent myth, often repeated in the tourist literature, according to which the building functioned as a weather alert, producing a whistle that would precede the arrival of a hurricane, but it's just a legend

Punta Sur Eco Beach Park

30 Min by car from the Cruise Dock. A fun place to explore the diversity of the coast of Cozumel and experience its flora and fauna, the Punta Sur Eco Park Beach is the largest island ecological park. Located on the southern tip of the island, Punta Sur offers plenty of opportunities to swim and have fun at the beach, as well as the opportunity to practice snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking. Part of the Parque Punta Sur, over 240 acres, is home to a variety of beaches, reefs and lagoons, as well as a wooded area with many trails.

It offers an aquarium section with fish, turtles, manatees; a zoo section with deer, jaguars, crocodiles, tapirs, a bird aviary, a butterfly pavilion and more! If you like to swim there's a natural salt water pool by the sea, or a beach where to snorkel as well.

In fact the presence of very high variety of coral systems make this destination one of the most beautiful for find corals in Cozumel. There are also copious and colorful fishes. The reef is covered from current, which is only moderate sometimes. Furthermore the depth of the water is between 30’ and 80’. That's why Palanca Reef a perfect spot for beginner and intermediate levels.

The different activities depend on which program you choose. Anyway there are lots of programs and tours offered by cruise companies or right outside the port. Be aware that taking your own picture is not allowed. There are local photographers and you will need to pay additional fees to bring pictures with you.

Meet sea lions and crocodile in Chankanaab National Park

Be sure to have time in Chankanaab National Park to watch the sea lion performance, as these marine animals love to show off with acrobatic leaps and by zipping through the water at remarkable speeds.

History & Culture

Cozumel Pearl Farm

20 min by car from the Cruise Port. The Cozumel Pearl Farm is a family owned project that began operations in 2001 and is considered the only pearl farm in the Caribbean. At the farms they works with oyster Pinctada radiata also known as Atlantic Pearl Oyster. This oyster was considered almost exctinted in the Caribbean so they are helping with the preservation of this oyster species in the region.

Maya Ruins in Tulum

To reach the area it will take about 1 hour and 30 minutes from the cruise port. There is a 45 min ferry ride plus 45 minutes run on the bus from Playa del Carmen. Tulum is perhaps the best preserved coastal Mayan Ruins site. It's the second most visited site in Mexico, after Chichen Itza. The ancient city of Tulum is about 800 years old and it was abandoned by the end of the 1500s. In fact it served as a fortress against enemies approaching by sea; that's why there are many walls surrounding the city. It was also also a major trading port for the inland city of Coba. Tulum is perched on a lookout atop a 40' sheer cliff, creating a drastic and awesome view of the Caribbean Sea. It's the kind of view that you'll never forget.

San Gervasio Maya Ruins

San Gervasio archeological site is located north east of San Miguel, about 30 minutes from the cruise port of Puerta Maya, the most distant cruise terminal from this place. It's a small site, compared to Tulum, which is still accessible from cruise ship with a longer trip. But it's still a very famous maya ruin site. In 1560, the Spanish historian, Diego Lopez de Cogolludo, wrote: "The pilgrims arrive at Cozumel for the fulfillment of their vows to offer their sacrifices, to ask help for their needs, and for the mistaken adoration of their false gods." The bishop of Yucatán, Diego de Landa, wrote in 1549 that the Maya "held Cozumel in the same veneration as we have for pilgrimages to Jerusalem and Rome, and so they used to go to visit and offer presents there, as we do to holy places; and if they did not go themselves, they always sent their offerings."

Walking

San Miguel downtown

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.

Shopping

Playa del Carmen Downtown

45 minutes by ferry to cross the cannel and reach the mainland. For those shopping addicted, especially crew members with time off, in Playa del Carmen there are plenty of shops from locals one to big chains like Zara, Mango, Swarovski, just to mention some. Souvenirs boutiques alternates with big malls; to enjoy your brake there are also many restaurants, cafes and ice cream shops.

Puerta Maya

This facility is part of the cruise port ad it welcomes ashore guests coming from ships docked at Puerta Maya Cruise Port. It's very well organized, with bars and restaurants in full Mexican style, with regards to Americans preferences. Shops are offering souvenirs, jewelries and goods calling especially the local traditions. Picturesque performance are offered by entertainers dancing and playing, representing the Mexican joy at its best.

Good to know

 

  1. Clothing Casual summer wear can be worn during the day any time of the year; but be sure to bring a jacket or sweater for cooler evenings from December to March.
  2. Water Shoes Bring them if you go to swim or snorkel. Some of the water can be rocky after you walk from the beach.
  3. Sundries For convenience and cost concerns, bring your own everyday health and beauty products with you.
  4. Port Regulation Be aware that in Mexican ports it's forbidden to take off the ship fruits, vegetables and unsealed food items due to local agricolture concern.
  5. Currency The official currency is the Mexican Peso, but the U.S. dollar is widely accepted throughout the island.
  6. Credit Card concern Pay attention using credit cards in Cozumel. Here several episodes of cloning happened. Use cash as much as possible.
  7. Time Zone EST (Eastern Standard Time) UTC/GMT -5 hours. No DST changes during the year. Make sure to keep the ship's time on your clock to come back board on time. Be aware of automatic changes of your smartphones.

Terminal

Cozumel is the busiest port in the Caribbean. In fact, hard to believe, this island can accomodate up to 10 large cruise ships in one single day. The cruise ports are three. Punta Langosta is located in San Miguel downtown, right in the center of the largest town of the island. Usually these docks are used by Disney, MSC and Norwegian. There are two spots available. Sometimes a third ship can stay just off the port, bringing guests ashore by tender boats. Few miles south there is the International Cruise Terminal. It’s utilizes mainly by Royal Corporation Companies like Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises. The last going south is the Puerta Maya port. With its three docks it is used by Carnival Corporation. Almost every day you can spot Carnival Cruise Line ships, together with Princess Cruises and others.

Regardless where you arrive with your ship, every port is very well serviced. Bars, duty free shops and restaurants are available everywhere. Renting vehicles and tour departures are available as soon as you get out from any of the terminals.

Remind

In Cozumel it is forbidden to carry food outside the ship. On leaving the terminals, agents and dogs carry out checks on the bags.

Smaller piers are used by ferries which are the boats crossing the channel from the island to the main land. You will use these boats if you decide to visit Playa del Carmen and all the amenities close by the city.

 

Transport

Public transportation is generally not considered a viable option for travelers visiting Cozumel.

Preferable to buses are taxis.  Taxi fares are standardized by the union operating in Cozumel, so be wary of any taxi driver who tries to charge you additional fees or to bargain with you about cost.

A good way to reach beaches and amenities around the island is renting jeeps and scooters. You will move quickly and have fun with friends or family.
