A Caribbean island paradise, Cozumel lies a short distance from Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. Tourism is the main economic engine here: visitors can enjoy a variety of activities, whether taking advantage of world-class snorkeling and scuba diving, swimming with dolphins, or lounging with a drink at one of the island's seaside resorts. Venture outside of touristy downtown Cozumel to discover the island's breathtaking natural beauty. Drive to the island's southern tip to Punta Sur Park, home to some colorful wildlife and one of Cozumel's most spectacular beaches, or head north to the San Gervasio archaeological site, where you'll find ancient Mayan ruins and a wildlife refuge brimming with iguanas. Visit Cozumel in February to experience the island's festive Carnival celebrations, occurring annually the week prior to Mardi Gras. Stunning Cozumel awaits!
