Cozumel

Cozumel has it all: a bustling waterfront town, excellent shopping, delicious food, sun-soaked beaches, Mayan ruins, crystal-clear warm waters, and activities galore. Just offshore, the world’s second-largest coral reef is part of an underwater national park, one of the many reasons undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau dubbed Cozumel a diver’s paradise.
