The Caribbean island of Cozumel is located off the east coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. There’s something to do here for everyone from exploring the range of tourist attractions to relaxing on the pristine beaches.
San Miguel de Cozumel is the main city on the island. It was once a quiet fishing village but is now a popular tourist destination with its excellent beaches and water sports opportunities. Scuba diving and snorkelling are some of the main attractions in the clear waters here, with a variety of tropical fish and colourful coral to explore. Other water sports include paragliding, jet skiing and banana boats.
The Festival of El Cedral takes place in Cozumel during the month of April. The vibrant festival has been running for over 150 years, taking place in the town of El Cedral and featuring everything from carnivals and bullfights to live music and traditional food. For a fascinating insight into the history of the island, there are also a variety of Mayan ruins to explore that date back thousands of years. You’ll be able to take a tour to sites such as Tulum, Chichen Itza and Coba Mayan.
