Cozumel Travel Guide

by our Mexico expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanThe island’s name is ancient Mayan for Isle of Swallows (birdlife not tequila, though that has changed of late). In the 18th century it was a hideout for the real ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. An extremely flat island in the Gulf of Mexico, with a single town, San Miguel, it’s the brilliantly clear waters of the Caribbean that first drew Jacques Cousteau and countless aqua-lovers since. The coral reefs received some damage from Hurricane Wilma in 2005 but again now teem with myriads of colorful tropical fish – the currents provide for easy, safe ‘drift diving’ along the reefs. Scuba and snorkelling, of course, but also trips in glass-bottomed boats, swimming with dolphins, self-drive mini underwater ‘scooters’ are all on the marine agenda in a superb climate. Mexican food, especially fish, varies from OK to good.
