Anyone who goes to Cozumel without seeing the east side can’t really say they’ve been to the island. It is postcard gorgeous anywhere you look. For us, it’s the chips, pico, and a margarita at Mezcalito’s. Coconuts is also a fun place and has an unbeatable view, friendly dogs, and powerful drinks. Try Chen Rio for a fantastic place to swim in a tide pool. Punta Sur is a whole day for us. We get there when they open at 9:00 and check out the crocodile lookout. Next, you need to climb the lighthouse (133 steps) and then go to the beach. Also, there is a lagoon boat tour you need to do. We’ve seen some big crocodiles on that tour up close and personal.
