Cozumel has grown steadily over the years since Jacques Cousteau first put the island on the map as a sea turtle sanctuary. The internet has also grown tremendously along with it. When visitors travel to Cozumel Mexico they want to know in advance where the best restaurants are, what are the best things to do, who are the most reliable tour operators, and so on. The problem with many of the top web sites is that it is sometimes hard to separate unbiased facts from advertising. This was the reason we decided to take a different approach to curb the commercialization of Cozumel. All of the pages that appear on Cozumel Mexico .net are based on decades of experience living here. We know know the island inside and out. We've watched the island grow first hand and distilled this maze of information into an easy to navigate and useful series of web pages.

Cozumel Mexico has many natural wonders to enjoy while on your vacation. Between Passion Island, all of the beach clubs with beach toys, as well as the raw natural beauty of the windward beaches, one might ask, where do I start?! For an excellent overview you can always check out pictures from around the island. Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park (aka Chankanaab National Park) is a top destination. Enjoy and view the new Sea Lion Program, Dolphin discovery, and much more. We revisited the park recently. And what we found was a renewed appreciation for this diverse and adventurous place! Coconuts Bar and Grill is perched atop the highest point on the island, surrounded by dense jungle vegetation. It is located on the Leeward side of the island. For this reason alone it rates as a point of interest. Next; San Gervasio Ruins. They are not as well known as their larger counterparts; Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Coba. But in terms of significance, Cozumel's San Gervasio ruins played an integral part of the Ancient Mayan Culture that was unique in all the Mayan civilization. Another great place to visit is Jade Caverns. It is tucked away in the middle of the jungle and is only accessible by ATV or ATX rails. A trip to the other side of the island reveals a Sea Turtle Sanctuary. What was once common knowledge is now a tradition kept alive by the ecological department here. Celerain Lighthouse is located at the southern tip of Punta Sur (the southernmost tip of Cozumel) and makes for a great way to spend the day. Many of the most popular points of interest like Punta Sur are run by the department of Parks and Museums.
To get the most out of any day you can always drive around the island. Starting from the leeward side you would travel south until you get to the south end (Punta Sur). You then travel north on the windward side till you get to Mezcalitos, and finally take the transversal road back into town. There are many beaches and beach clubs that appeal to just about everyone. No trip around the island would be complete without visiting El Mirador which is located on the windward side of the island. For more information about where the beaches are and what they are like, make sure to visit our Cozumel beaches web site on the main menu. Of course there are over 40 tours and excursions to choose from. The most popular tours are listed on the menu. You can also make reservations there. For those of you who enjoy the night life and live music, make sure to check out our night life guide. If you are staying for a while you may want to go off-island for a mainland excursion. For more information on mainland excursions see the Mayan Ruins link under tours and excursions on the menu. Or what about something totally different like underwater photography? Cozumel's underwater photography was brought into the spotlight by Jacques Cousteau. He spent countless hours studying the behavior of sea turtles and dolphins here. Jacques also enjoyed SCUBA diving and photographing what is arguably the most pristine coral reef in the Western Hemisphere. It is no wonder that underwater shutter bugs travel from all over the world to photograph our majestic coral reefs and its inhabitants. And if all else fails you can always just rest and relax while you hang out in this island paradise!
