Destination Spotlight- Cozumel
Cozumel has been a destination in which many of you have requested information for, and it is on my bucket list as well.
Cozumel is filled with rich history and natural wonders. It has beautiful beaches along with an amazing Mayan culture. If you are visiting Cozumel, you will want to make time to explore the ancient Mayan ruins on the north side of the island. While there, you will also want to visit the sanctuary of the fertility goddess Ixchel at San Gervasio.
Cozumel is the largest island in Mexico and is known as “the Land of the Swallows”. It offers some of the most spectacular diving and snorkeling in Mexico with the second largest reef in the world. If you don’t dive, that is okay because Cozumel also offers a lot to those who are looking for fun, sun, and relaxation. There are a numerous amount of tours and day trips offered such as: snorkeling, fishing, swimming with dolphins, and catamaran tours. If you are staying in Cancan, Playa Del Carmen, or the Riviera Maya you can take a day trip over to Cozumel, as it is just off the south east coast.
Cozumel has something for just about anyone. It hosts about a dozen resorts with the majority of them being all inclusive and family friendly. However, they do also have an adult only resort as well. With its many incredible features and excursions, Cozumel is an experience you won’t want to miss out on.
Fun Fact: The Mayans first settled on Cozumel in the 1st millennium A.D. They considered the island sacredx and dedicated it to Chel, the Mayan Moon Goddess. Many temples were built there and were places of pilgrimage, especially by women seeking fertility.-Travel Impressions
