The new 333 berth Cozumel marina represents one of the current Mexican government's largest investments in tourism infrastructure.

It's construction has been managed by Fonatur, the same federal agency that created the Mexican Caribbean resort of Cancun.

Known in Spanish as Marina Cozumel, it lies next to the Caleta marina, a few miles south of downtown, and shares the same sea access as its older relative next door.

The marina became operational in July 2015 and the surrounding hotel and residential construction will be completed in the following years.

In 2012, Fonatur said that $27.4 million of public money has been invested in the project and that it will attract a further $29.1 million in private investment. They also said it will create more than 5,000 jobs, both directly and indirectly.
