lifestyle, travel This is Cozumel

Cozumel escape

Cozumel is a haven for vacationers, divers and cruise ship passengers, and it makes for an ideal escape from the colder northern winter months.

The Caribbean waters are warm and inviting, and you can see amazing sights both above and below the surface.

You can dive into history too, with a visit to one of the Mayan ruins or the city municipal museum, or enjoy beach combing, swimming and or simply sipping an ice cold margarita in the shade as you watch the world go by.


People here don't need a reason to celebrate - it's Cozumel - that's reason enough to be happy.

But one festival not to miss is the Festival of El Cedral every April/May, which is thought to have been going on for over 160 years.

El Cedral Festival can only be topped by Carnival in Cozumel. The island's spectacular annual Mardis Gras has over 130 years of history and is held around February every year, although the exact dates vary.


Celebrate another way by shopping for your souvenirs. Cozumel is a great place to get good deals on silver and wonderful Mexican jewelry and handcrafts.

Try one of the many local merchants and return home with your own treasure. Or, buy some original tequila and invite your friends over for a drink when you get back.

As well as incredible large all-inclusive resorts, Cozumel has a wonderful range of small hotels, guest houses and B&Bs, ranging from rustic to boutique.

Or if you're looking for a home away from home you can find an excellent selection of vacation rentals, including condos and villas of all sizes.

Some of the best deals can be found with timeshare hotel and rental properties. If you are looking to buy a timeshare then the website BuyATimeshare lets you browse offers and find a package that meets your needs.

Wherever you decide to stay and whatever you decide to do, Cozumel is guaranteed to have something for you and - as winter arrives - now is the perfect time to plan your escape!
