The Top 10 Things To Do on Cozumel Mexico

Here are The Top Ten things to do in Cozumel Mexico.

Cozumel, once a quiet, off-the-grid beach town, is now an attractive Mexican Caribbean vacation destination that offers countless activities and experiences for guests. Its acceptance means there are more things to accomplish and see, from free or inexpensive activities to pricey excursions. Here’s our pick of the finest activities around.

Rent bikes for simple transportation

Because of Cozumel’s unique design – the shoreline is the primary attraction in the downtown’s scenery. Renting bikes for at least two days while you visit is advisable. This will allow you more flexibility to explore the area without relying on taxis. Plus, with the air swirling through your hair as you cycle around, you’ll forget about the humidity.

Bar hop in downtown Cozumel or on the Eastern “Wild-side”

For night owls and party animals, Cozumel has plenty of options, whether you’re a fan of live music, DJ sets, or Caribbean salsa rhythms. If you head downtown, you’ll have plenty of choices between the clubs that fill up on the weekends and the smaller, more intimate venues that require more exploration. We recommend Woody’s for quirky live music. Head to the Money Bar if partying on the waterfront is more your style. Our favorite tour of Cozumel’s “wild side” is the Cozumel Bar Hop. They are dedicated to showing their guests the secluded, breath-taking beaches of the “other side” away from the masses. This tour allows you to experience the unique beauty of the island’s east side, where you won’t find resorts, houses, crowds, or even electricity!

Go swimming in the Caribbean

Yes, it sounds straightforward, but it’s one of Cozumel’s best things to do. When the ocean is calm, it’s crystal clear, and you can see right down to the bottom. When the sea is wavy and more active, jumping and riding the waves is fun. However, pay attention to the beach flags, which signal water conditions: a black flag means do not swim; a red flag shows dangerous conditions; a yellow flag means use caution while swimming; and a green flag means it is safe to swim. Be aware that most remote beaches do not have flags.

Cool off with a savory treat

There’s nothing like ice cream on a scorching tropical day. La Flor de Michoacán is another of Cozumel’s top-quality ice cream spots. And good news for people of all tastes. While its ice-creams are the best, it also serves some delicious frozen yogurt, shakes, and juices. So, if one of your family members is not in for ice cream, you can still visit this place and make the best of your time in Cozumel. La Flor de Michoacán’s best-selling flavored ice cream is the coconut one. Feel the tinge of coconut and cream on your tongue and tantalize your taste buds. With almost thirty distinct flavors of ice cream and popsicles available, we are sure you won’t have trouble finding the one for yourself. You have got everything from dragon fruit to cookie-flavored ice cream to a spicy Mexican-flavored Popsicle!

Check out turtles in their natural habitat

If you’re into nature, this is one of the must-do things when visiting Cozumel. Each year, from May to October, most of the coastline experiences sea turtle nesting season. After the sun sets each evening, mother turtles go onto the beach to lay their eggs before returning to the surf.

Shop till you drop

Cozumel is overflowing with shops and boutiques that sell everything from luxury home goods and apparel to Mexican handicrafts and fair-trade items. Many shop owners visited Cozumel, fell in love, stayed, opened a store, and sold unique merchandise inspired by the area.

Try Mexican craft beer

Everyone knows that Mexican beer is superb (from well-known Corona to hipster-loved Tecate or higher-end Modelo), but Mexican craft beer, or cerveza artisanal, has become very popular. Breweries are popping up, and many restaurants and bars now sell craft beer. The best place in Cozumel to get craft beer is La Internacional Cerveceria. It is a super cozy and enjoyable bar for you to enjoy with your significant other. We are sure you will not regret being there even for a minute. With a wide variety of beers from all over Mexico and so many flavors, trust us, you will even find it difficult to choose your favorite beer.

Take a holiday photo at the Cozumel sign

Every Mexican town tourist visit seems to have colorful signs for guests to be photographed alongside, and Cozumel is no different. Get creative and lie down before the letters, look through them, or sit on top of them. The picture you take here will make the perfect Instagram post or Facebook cover photo. One Cozumel sign is located downtown in the main square. Bring your patience and some water because there is almost always a line.

Try out the ceviche at La Conchita del Caribe

This has long been one of Cozumel’s favorite food spots because of the ridiculously fresh and flavorsome ceviche and seafood served daily. While locals still stop by, this has become somewhat of a traveler’s joint, but it’s still worth visiting. If that doesn’t tickle your taste buds, there is a swathe of other top-notch food vendors and restaurants you can try out in Cozumel, downtown, and on the Eastern “wild side.”

Go Kiteboarding

Kiteboarding is an exhilarating extreme sport. Whether you’re an expert or it’s something you’ve always wanted to try, Cozumel is a great place to kiteboard. If you don’t have your gear, kiteboarding schools offer rentals and lessons. De Lille Sports in Cozumel is a good option. Kiteboarding all depends on the wind, and remember that though the windiest months are November to May, during this time, there may be days with no wind, while there may be very windy days during the non-windy months.
