Your Cozumel vacation

Famous for its bustling cruise-ship port, Cozumel also sports an alter ego as one of the world's best scuba-diving destinations. And between the extremes lies much more: Families find all-day activities at eco parks like Chancanaab and Punta Sur, foodies savor cosmopolitan and local flavors in downtown San Miguel, and history buffs explore Mayan ruins at San Gervasio.

Let Orbitz help you arrange a Cozumel vacation tailored just for you. Get the inside scoop on the best diving reefs, secluded beach spots, and the best time to go.

Best time to take a vacation to Cozumel

  • Cozumel travel conditions stay fairly consistent year round, but like many Caribbean hotspots, the winter high season brings the mildest weather, biggest crowds and highest prices. Savvy travelers go in the summer during low season (translation: reduced hotel rates) -- and divers and snorkelers take advantage of calm waters. Hurricane season spans from June through November.

    Celebrate Mexican holidays like Cinco de Mayo (May 5) and Dia de los Muertos (November 1st and 2nd) on your Cozumel vacation. Another can't-miss is Carnival (think Mexican Mardi Gras) which kicks off right before Lent in late February or early March.

  • Cozumel has warm weather year round, with average temperatures ranging from 68 to 89 degrees Fahrenheit, so it's the perfect weather for a beach destination. Fall is the best time to visit Cozumel if you're looking to save money. If you go during this off season, you'll also be rewarded with fewer crowds. If you go in November, you'll be able to celebrate two major Mexican holidays along with the locals: Day of the Dead on November 1 and the anniversary of the Mexican Revolution on November 20. Both holidays in Cozumel are celebrated with feasts and ceremonies.

Insider tips for Cozumel travel

  • Best Beaches

    For good sunbathing, hit the natural sandy beaches on the north and south ends of the island, while the rocky beaches near town offer the best nearshore snorkeling.

  • Off-Strip Shopping

    Explore beyond the waterfront jewelry and souvenir shops—San Miguel proper has better deals, especially in the evenings when the cruise-ship crowds have receded.

  • Downtown Dining

    Find food aplenty in San Miguel, from cosmopolitan fine dining fare to late-night walk-ups selling traditional Yucatecan snacks for a song.

  • Drift Diving

    World-famous among scuba divers for its offshore currents, Cozumel offers ripping underwater rides at top-tier dive sites like Tormentos Reef.

  • A Link to the Past

    Find the Temple of the Hands—which bears red-painted palm prints on its walls—among the jungle-cloaked ruins at San Gervasio.

  • Cozumel at Night

    Cozumel really comes alive at night. Take a nap during the day like locals do, so you can live it up after dark.

    Kinta

    Stop by Kinta, a favorite restaurant of locals, for delicious, fresh seafood with tons of local flare.

    Avenida 30

    Pick up lunch to go on Avenida 30, one of the main roads on the island. Treat yourself to a picnic on the beach.

    Souvenir Shopping

    Avoid the waterfront when shopping for souvenirs. You'll get better prices if you shop along the backstreets.

    Cocina con Alma

    Learn to cook Mexican food like a pro with this unique cooking class in the old neighborhood of El Centro.
