Cozumel Activities


For those who don't want to take part in an cruise-organised excursion, the following are a selection of activities you can enjoy on Cozumel. You'll usually save money over cruise-organised excursions to the same places, but might have to arrange your own transportation.  

Museo de Cozumel

Investigate the history of Cozumel at this fascinating museum. Discover exhibits on the island's origins, endangered species and coral reef ecology. Examine Mayan artifacts, conquistador's swords, cannons and remarkable maritime instruments.

Port Shopping District

Shop to your heart's content at one of the world's best duty-free ports. Consider bargains on diamonds, colored gemstones, jewelry, watches, gold, sterling silver and even Oriental rugs, as well as Mexican housewares and handicrafts.

Playa San Francisco Beach

Popular park sites and excursions include Dolphin Discovery, where visitors can swim with the dolphins or simply enjoy the 45-minute dolphin encounter. The Sea Lion Show, an exciting display of stunts and other performances featuring the talents of these lovely mammals. The Maya Zone, a modern-day reproduction of a Maya village, in which visitors can learn about the ancient culture's building and farming practices. The Botanical Gardens, a forest cut by trails, in which visitors can identify 350 different plant species, watch exotic birds, or simply bask in the sun. In addition Snuba and Sea Trek are two exciting activities that provide opportunities for visitors to view the reefs located near the shore.
