When staying at Villa Del Palmar Cancun, organizing a day trip to Cozumel is easier than you might think. At less than two hours away, including an idyllic ferry ride, the scenic island provides the perfect opportunity to escape the mainland and head to where Caribbean influences and Mexican culture blend into one heavenly destination. Known for its stunning white sand beaches, emerald green jungles and serene natural beauty, Cozumel is the ideal place for travelers looking to spend the day in paradise.
When organizing a Cozumel day trip, visitors should have a good idea of how they want to spend their time. There is a lot to see and do, but the relatively small size of the island makes it possible to get a lot done in just one day. Whether you’re looking to head out scuba diving in one of the best dive spots in the world, relax on the white sand beaches that blanket the region or hike alongside the natural beauty that makes the Mexican Caribbean its home, Cozumel is the place for you.
Renowned for its beautiful coral reefs, Cozumel ranks among the top five dive destinations in the world. Surrounding the island are vast expanses of crystal clear water teeming with schools of tropical fish and a variety of exotic marine life. With visibility of up to 200 feet and near perfect weather year round, Cozumel is a mecca for divers at every level. While scuba diving excursions have become the most popular pastime in the area, there is no shortage of other water activities, including snorkeling and swimming with dolphins, to keep each and every visitor busy for hours on end.
Walking around town is also a great way to spend the day. Guests to the area can peruse the variety of boutique shops, visit the different museums that explain the history of Cozumel and indulge in the beauty of the Afro-Latino culture. For those interested in learning about Mexico’s history, one of the most interesting places to spend a few hours is Discover Mexico, a one-stop theme park designed to educate visitors on the culture, traditions and history of the Mexican people.
In Cozumel, connecting with Mother Nature is inevitable. For as far as one can see, tropical forests, botanical gardens, sandy beaches and lush jungle are waiting to be explored. Get lost on a bird-watching excursion where one can spot over 200 species of birds, hike the Botanical Garden Trail and enjoy over 350 different species of plants or live the thrill of exploring the untamed jungle. In Cozumel, the largest island in Mexico, anything is possible.
