¡Disfruta la ciudad de Cozumel y el tequila!

Cozumel, a mostly undeveloped Mexican island in the Caribbean Sea, is a popular cruise ship port of call famed for its scuba diving. At Arrecifes de Cozumel National Park, there’s diving spots around a section of the Mesoamerican Reef and the Museo Subacuático de Arte’s submerged sculptures. Chankanaab is an eco park surrounding a lagoon with underwater caverns, home to dolphins, manatees and sea turtles. 

The Cozumel cruise port is fairly large and offers quite a bit. Cozumel is the largest island in the Yucatan peninsula. It can currently dock 8 (yes, EIGHT) cruise ships at once each day. This makes for a very busy port.

In the port area are quite a few ships, as well as restaurants. In fact the first thing you come to once you debark the ship is Three Amigos Restaurant. It’s actually good food here, but you want to get away from the port area and enjoy your port of call.
