Make Beach Time a Priority
Cozumel has earned a reputation as a destination filled with beautiful beaches and as soon as you arrive, it’s easy to see why. A spring break adventure to Cozumel isn’t considered complete until you’ve built time into your itinerary to soak up the sunshine from a place on one of Cozumel’s powder-white shorelines. If you’re staying somewhere near the northwest end of the Cozumel, both Playa Santa Pilar and Playa San Juan are great options for a day of beach-bound fun. Those who can’t wait to soak up sights of the Caribbean Sea will want to head east where Playa Hana, Punta Morena, and Playa Encantada are all amazing options for delighting in time on the sand. Those spring break revelers staying near the southwest corner of Cozumel will find Playa Palancar, and Playa Santa Rosa well worth taking time to explore.
Consider Underwater Adventures
A trip to Cozumel in the spring comes packed with options for land-based entertainment, but you don’t want to overlook options for underwater adventures as well! Heading over to Playa Mia Grand Beach Park is a perfect option for those who are excited to spend some time snorkeling in crystal clear waters. Snorkeling here also allows for direct access to El Cielo which hosts some amazing coral reefs. For those who are certified, diving in Cozumel promises to be an unsurpassed experience. Especially when you set your sights on Palancar Reef. This inspiring location is considered one of the ultimate dive spots in all of Cozumel and is found near the southwest end of the island. While exploring the reef up close is a captivating experience, these waters also host a bronze figure of Christ approximately 17 meters beneath the surface! While independent diving is a delight, those looking to get to lesser-known underwater marvels more easily will want to link up with a diving tour group while you’re in town. Booking tickets in advance of your arrival is important when you want to save significantly on your spring excursions. No matter how you choose to dive, expect to encounter everything from sunfish and sea turtles to angelfish and maybe even nurse sharks along the way!
