Cozumel is feeling very Christmassy with colorful lights, festive shows, carol singing, artisan markets, a visit from Santa Claus and plenty of seasonal charity and cheer.

While families enjoy time together it is also a very busy time of year for the island and the tourism high season is shaping up to be a merry one. Cruise ship arrivals and hotel occupation have increased for December and January and many businesses are expecting record visitor numbers over Christmas and New Year.

Many things to do are already sold out, so if you're visiting Cozumel over the Holidays don't wait any longer, book your tours and activities now!

Whatever you're doing and wherever you are, we would like to send very Merry Christmas wishes to all our readers, ¡Feliz Navidad!
