From our freindds at Visit Mexico
‘The Caribbean sea is completely fascinating. The turquoise of its waters and its transparency will make you fall in love of this scene. If you are thinking about visiting the Riviera Maya, you definitely have to enjoy a few days in Cozumel. To get there you will have to take a flight to Cancún and then, take the ferry to this enchanted place. The island has incomparable views, in and outside the water. It is one of the favorite destinations for doing snorkel thanks to the fact that it is part of the second largest reef barrier in the world. Begin your visit in Punta Sur, where you will find a park and an ecological reserve. Take a look at the Faro Celarain, a modern lighthouse that contrast with the Templo Caracol, a pre-hispanic construction. To visit the archaeological zone you will have to make a prior reservation to the Centro Nacional de Antropología e Historia. The park is open to the public from Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM. Discover the downtown of Cozumel and eat a traditional “marquesita”, a kind of sweet, thin tortilla stuffed with bola cheese and hazelnut cream. If you prefer, enjoy an ice cream in the Parque Juarez, a place so calm, beautiful and quiet that you will not want to leave. Finally, take a tour through the museum of the island, that has four exhibition rooms, in which you will learn part of the history and marine life of this place settle in the middle of the Caribbean. Admire the Reloj Publico, built in 1910 in the town of San Miguel and then, walk around the Monumento al Mestizaje, an ode to the Mexican mestizo race.
