How to Spend 3 Days in Cozumel

How to Spend 3 Days in Cozumel
With three days to discover Cozumel, go beyond the basics to see a side of the island many visitors overlook. After you take in perfect beaches, candy-colored reefs, and the party scene, ditch the crowds to ride jungle trails, fly through the treetops, and discover ancient Maya ruins. Here’s how to make the most of three days in Cozumel.
 
Day 1: Hit the Beach
Get into the rhythm of your tropical island escape with a full day on the sand—Cozumel has powdery white beaches that are among Mexico’s best. Many of the island’s most appealing stretches of coast are managed by private beach clubs, which offer convenient perks such as on-site showers, changing rooms, bars, and restaurants. 
 
While a lazy day by the shore sounds like a perfect start to any vacation, not all Cozumel beach days are quite so relaxed. Local beach clubs range from party spots lined with loungers to active adventure parks stocked with water sports equipment, rides, and even nature trails. Whether laid-back or active, clubs are a popular option for enjoying Cozumel beaches; to secure a spot at the beach club of your choice it’s worth booking ahead.
 
Day 2: Leave Dry Land Behind
For many visitors, Cozumel’s real treasures start at the waterline, and the protected area of Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park features both snorkel-friendly coral gardens and undersea cliffs that plummet into darkness.
 
Since many snorkeling tours visit a series of reef locations, you can get a taste of Cozumel’s wild diversity in just half a day on the water. Scuba diving in Cozumel can range from outings for certified divers to beginner-friendly excursions that don’t require a lengthy class.
 
If you’re a first-time diver, consider a “discover” scuba diving trip that gets you in the water after minimal classroom time, or try out an individual “mini sub” with fully enclosed helmets designed for breathing without a mask. And if wet hair and flippers just aren’t your thing, you can still peek beneath the surface on a coral reef tour by glass-bottom boat or submarine.

Day 3: Explore the Island
Venture beyond the beaches and you’ll discover dense jungle, hidden caverns, and ancient Maya ruins. The experience can be as adventurous or relaxed as you want, with options that include horseback riding, ATV tours, and zipline courses that fly through the lush treetops. Keep an eye on the forest as you explore, since the Cozumel jungle is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including iguanas, coatis, crocodile, and a jewel box of tropical birds.

Since this is your last night in Cozumel, go all out to celebrate the sunset in Caribbean style. Many sunset cruises in Cozumel offer festive perks such as free-flowing drinks and snacks that can kick off a festive evening on shore, or you can make a night of it on board with an all-inclusive dinner cruise.
