This hotel has a very nice location on the island and provides for gorgeous views of the sunset. The rooms are spacious and have balconies overlooking the ocean which is great. Overall the staff is OK, very friendly at the breakfast restaurant but not all that friendly at the front desk or the pool ...

This was my 3rd stay at Casa Mexicana and it is always like coming home. I see familiar smiling faces that call me by name during my stay and are always willing to help however possible. The breakfast is always delicious and plentiful. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cozumel.

Introduction to Cozumel

Experience Your Best Cozumel Vacation

Get all the excitement of an exotic island vacation, combined with the quaint charm of classic Mexico, by vacationing in Cozumel. With casual and upscale dining, beach excursions, parties and bars, Cozumel is perfect for the adventurer in all of us.

Visit Parque Chankanaab for a taste of history mixed with marine life exhibits. For those interested in snorkeling, swimming and relaxing on the beach, Playa San Juan is the place to be. If you want to experience everything you can in Cozumel but don't want to empty your wallet, check out to get great deals on air tickets, hotels, car rentals, tours and more.

Experience Your Best 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 trip 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.

Things to do in Cozumel

San Gervasio

Head a few hours outside San Miguel to this small jungle complex of ancient Mayan ruins. You can hire a guide or explore on your own.

Plaza Central

The town square is the de facto hangout spot for tourists and locals alike, especially on Sunday evenings, with live music and dancing.

Chankanaab Park

Families will find lots to do at this popular beach eco park from dolphin encounters and great snorkeling to (minor) Mayan ruins and more.

Passion Island

A private-island beach club off the northern shore, Passion Island is a popular all-inclusive day trip for cruise shippers.

Cozumel Museum

The downtown museum describes Cozumel's unique natural ecosystems and its ancient and colonial histories, complete with Mayan and Conquistador relics.

Punta Este

Escape the crowds on the undeveloped east side of the island. This wind-swept shore is great for beachcombing, but not swimming—the water has dangerous currents.

Offshore Fishing

Show your big-gaming fishing skills in Cozumel's offshore waters. Arrange a local charter to catch tuna, mahi mahi, marlin, sailfish and more.

Hacienda Antigua Tequila Tour

Want to learn how agave turns into tequila? Take a guided tour and see how this award-winning label crops, pulps, ferments and distills this famous plant. Enjoy a tasting as well as a souvenir shop, restaurant and bar.

Palancar Reef

Cozumel's largest reef boasts a half-dozen boat-accessible dive sites with plunging walls, sun-dappled sea caves, and dramatic underwater canyons.

Insider tips for Cozumel travel

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.

Drift Diving

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

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.

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.

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.

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.


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.
