Rating Low Key But Safe
Beaches The beaches here are small and unimpressive, tucked in along the rocky coast.
Nightlife There is one gay bar (sort of). There is nightlife in Playa del Carmen and Cancun - but getting back to Cozumel at the end of the evening isn't practical.
Best For Those looking for excellent diving and snorkelling.
  • Playa del Carmen (and much better beaches) are only a 40 minute ferry away, so it's easy to pop over to the mainland for the day.
  • The water on the western coast are the calmest and the sunsets are beautiful.
  • Cozumel is a popular cruise ship stop so the town can be overrun when a ship is in port.
