Cozumel is probably one of the best diving locations in the entire Caribbean and has been ranked as one of the top five dive destinations in the world. It has calm waters and white sandy beaches, which are fringed by a spectacular reef system. It is also a great spot for snorkelling, water sports and other seaside activities.
The only town in Cozumel is San Miguel, which is quite small and quaint. The locals gather in the plaza, especially on Sunday evenings, just to socialise and have a good time. There are several restaurants and other nightspots in town.
Cozumel is a particular favourite of cruise ship passengers and when a ship is in port, the town comes alive with tourists.
