The hotels. There are wide arrays of hotels on the Island, all of which are very different in how they cater to their guests. There are the economy hotels, which are located just outside of town. There is very little that you can do without getting into a taxi from out there. The price is right, but they are generally not very convenient. There are the all-inclusive hotels that are on the west coast—south of town. These share a similar inconvenience, but offer a lot more to their guests at a much higher price. Private beaches.

For anyone who was ever looking for a quick and inexpensive scuba diving trip from Texas has been to Cozumel. And anyone who has ever been to Cozumel once, has been back time and time again. Better than drugs, it is addictive. The people are wonderful. The dive locations are diverse, and the dive operators can accommodate everyone from the first time diver to the most advanced divers. I don’t know of any scuba diver who has ever been disappointed by spending 3-4 days in Cozumel, Mexico (and few who don’t dive have been disappointed either). But Cozumel is not just about scuba diving. There are many wonderful things to see, taste, small and experience in this wonderful little jewel off of the coast of ...Read More
