Cozumel

Thanks to the island's outstanding scuba diving and snorkeling options, Cozumel tourism sector remains a major employer and the main source of income for this Caribbean getaway.
Step out of the city life by going to Columbia Reef and Punta Sur Eco Beach Park. Discover out-of-the-way places like Santa Rosa Wall and Swim with Dolphins. It doesn't end there: cast your line with a fishing tour and take a memorable tour with Tours.

To find ratings, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Cozumel journey planning website .

Mexico City to Cozumel is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Mexico City to Cozumel. Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from Mexico City in June; daily highs in Cozumel reach 34°C and lows reach 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can drive to Tulum.
