Cozumel is a small island paradise, off the east coast of the Yucatan peninsula that we have visited numerous times. Trust me, there are a million reasons to visit Mexico, but to be honest, Cozumel is a reason in its own right. The island is blessed with abundant sea life, providing a mesmerizing insight into the spectacular underwater world. We actually did a lot of SCUBA diving around Cozumel over the years. The Yucatan Peninsula has a stunning mainland atmosphere. However, once you’ve enjoyed all the things to do in Playa del Carmen, it is time to stray off the mainland and embrace island life on Cozumel.
