Flights to Cozumel

A key destination on the Mexican Riviera, Cozumel flights land at the Cozumel International Airport, just a few miles from the various resort towns. The airport advertises its shopping mall as an alternative to spending your entire vacation shopping, as it has a variety of shops for souvenirs and gifts. Banking services are also provided at various locations around the airport, so when your flights to Cozumel land, you can be ready to jump into Mexican life as soon as you go through customs! You can get out to the hotel zone, about three and a half miles from the airport by rental car, taxi, or shared shuttle.

Cozumel Weather

With a classification of sub-tropical, Cozumel has fine weather and high temperatures. The temperature when you disembark your Cozumel flights will be well above 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20°C). You'll be happier in the water during the hotter months of April through July, when the water warms and becomes perfect for snorkeling, although scuba diving can be done any time of the year. The colorful fish and other life come out into the open when the water temperature rises. No matter what time of year your flight to Cozumel lands, you'll find a summer paradise!

Getting Around Cozumel

Traveling in the vicinity of Cozumel is easily done on foot, and walking is a tried and true way of getting to local attractions. If you want to visit the further ends of the island, however, you will want to rent a car and avoid the high cost of local taxis. Just do a little research into traffic patterns and signage before leaping behind the wheel, and you'll be fine. You can rent a moped as well, but if you are unused to traffic patterns, this can be dangerous. In addition, you can break up the monotony of walking by renting a bicycle, which is almost a necessity in San Miguel, where most bars and restaurants provide bike racks in front of their businesses to encourage bikers.

Cozumel Attractions

Cozumel is known as a tourist destination. Beaches and water-sports abound, and the bars and nightlife in the clubs of San Miguel are well known. The scuba and snorkeling is a draw for tourists, and most of the island is covered with undeveloped jungle and wildlife. You may not have known about the chocolate factory, however! In addition, you can see these attractions:

  • Playa Corona, snorkel heaven, with many fish, Eagle Rays and eels. Snorkel rentals available.
  • Paradise beach, with plenty of space to lay back and enjoy the sun, or go windsurfing.
  • Chocolates Kaokao, a chocolate factory tour with chocolate tasting and shopping at the end.
  • Mayan Steam Lodge, the old practice of Mexican-style sauna, or "Temazcal".
  • Columbia Reef, scuba with groupers and giant sea turtles as well as moderate currents.

Cozumel When to Go

Often classed as subtropical and very similar to Cancun climate-wise, Cozumel typically sees sunny conditions and resultant heat. Summer (low season) ranges from the mid-80s to 90s, and winter (high season) cools to the mid-70s. Hurricane season is August through November.

Naturally, prices are steeper during high season. For a less pricey time, hit the summer season from May until mid-August. Some days are scorchers, but cooling onshore winds help tone it down a bit.

From April through July, the sea surrounding Cozumel warms up dramatically. These crystal waters boast exceptional visibility levels of up to 200 feet. And when they heat up, they ambush scuba divers with confetti-colored fish and marine life. During peak diving season from June through August, the water is an inviting 75 to 80 degrees.

If you plan your travels around cultural events and festivals, Cozumel's most significant event, the Sacred Mayan Journey in May, re-creates the pilgrimage crossing the Cozumel Channel to worship the fertility goddess Ixchel. Twenty-five traditional Mayan canoes depart the Xcaret adventure theme park in Cancun and cross the channel to Cozumel before returning to Playa del Carmen.

Other celebrations include Carnival the week prior to Ash Wednesday, the Kite Boarding & Windsurfing Tournament in March, and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in November. Also in November, the Ironman brings uber-athletes from around the globe to compete in the triathlon.
