    It was great overall and with good organization, which is not obvious in Mexico. Loved the crew and how they managed the crowd. I was hoping for a stop ad Cielo beach but we ended up at the crowded Mia Grand beach park, but this is because of food/lunch options. The food was actuallly the only downside as it was basic and pre-cooked and came in cold. Also not too much time on the beach ( only 50 mins including eating)

Frequently asked questions about Cozumel

What top attractions are a must-see in Cozumel?

Planning Your Visit

  • When to go

    Weather-wise, the best time to visit Cozumel is between the late autumn and early spring, when temperatures remain warm and dry. That said, this is also the peak season, so the island is at its most crowded. If you'd rather avoid the rush but still want to enjoy good weather, your best bet is late spring, before the start of the rainy season in June.

  • Ride scooters responsibly

    Scooters are a fun and highly popular way to get around the island. There are many rental places, with rates around $20-30 per day. However, make sure to exercise care as crashes are very frequent amongst tourists. Wearing a helmet is not only a good idea, but legally mandatory (police are on the look-out for riders without helmets and the fine is $25).

We didn't get to the tour at 12 noon due to the current situation of the ferries which are very congested. However, thanks to the tour manager's goodwill, we were able to start the tour at 4 p.m. The tour was very nice. And the crew was very nice. Great experience!

The crew was phenomenal!! Everyone on board had so much fun. Food was great. The whole experience was fantastic. Already recommended the trip to several people at our hotel.

Loved going to the local eateries! The people were so nice!

Driver was on time, very nice and the car was very clean
