5 Things to do in Cozumel

It's Wanderlust Wednesday! Today we're talking about what to do in Cozumel.

We've been thinking about spending our winters away from Idaho. As a writer I can work anywhere so it would be a bit silly not to head to somewhere warm. We've been to Cozumel many times as cruise ship passengers and have enjoyed it every single time. No decision has been made yet, but these five things I've done in the past makes me want to go back and do them again and again.

1.Visit an all inclusive resort for the day. Mexican food + all you can drink + beach = an amazing day.

You can also take the ferry to Playa del Carmen on the mainland.

2. Once there, head to the Tulum ruins. Get a good tour guide and you'll come away knowing everything you'd ever want to know about the Mayans. (For more info, check out my previous blog post HERE.)

3. If you'd prefer something more active, consider taking a tour that takes you to the Dos Ojos Cenotes. Cenotes are underground caves filled with water. Stalagmites and stalactites. And you can snorkel in them! (For more detailed info on the trip, check out my previous blog post HERE.)


On the mainland you can also snorkel with the sea turtles in Akumal Bay.

4. Back in Cozumel, check out the different methods of transportation. You can rent a scooter (be careful, drivers are crazy), take an ATV tour, or even hop a ride in a pedicab.

5. Stay local and just relax. Eat, drink, and hang out at a beach not too far from port with a pay-as-you-go restaurant or resort.
The Money Bar is great for snorkeling.
Their menu can be found HERE.
Beautiful views from one of the restaurants in port.
