Just off Mexico’s southwestern coast, this scenic island is known as a top diving destination, but it's also home to authentic eats, diverse wildlife, and pristine white-sand beaches. Sign up to snorkel amongst the well-developed coral reefs that line the western coast of the island and get up close and personal with the native, diverse marine life. Thriving underwater gardens await eager divers, but submarines can take anyone down for an exploratory peek. If you’d prefer to stay on land, explore the Mayan ruins of San Gervasio, the largest Mayan ruins site on the island. Women once (and still) would pilgrimage to this holy site to pray to Ixchel, the goddess of fertility.
Visiting the island in February? Get ready for Cozumel Carnival. Established in the mid-1800s, Cozumel Carnival is one of the oldest, most culturally important carnival celebrations in all of Mexico. And no matter what time of year you visit, all of Mexico is at your fingertips. If you manage to run out of things to explore on the island (highly unlikely), you can hop a quick ferry to the mainland and take a daytrip to Playa del Carmen at San Miguel on the other side of the Cozumel Channel. Where else can you take a vacation from your vacation?
