Easygoing and laidback may be the buzzwords that make up Cozumel’s vernacular, but you’d be remiss to think that luxury amenities and top-notch resorts aren’t also at your fingertips here. With spectacular coral reefs and clear calm waters, this chill island has become a world-renowned diving destination that features first-class facilities and services. And while diving, snorkeling and various watersports are often the most popular activities, Cozumel also offers many things to do on land. Take a jeep ride along the wild, undeveloped eastern coast to explore secluded beaches and untamed vegetation or enjoy a relaxing round of golf at the internationally recognized Cozumel Country Club. Ancient Mayan ruins and a number of eco-parks and nature reserves are noteworthy sites to visit, and you’ll also find plenty of shopping, fine-dining and sizzling nightlife around the island. Year-round celebrations, including the weeklong Carnaval in February, contribute to the festive nature of this Caribbean island.
