Overview of Cozumel In Mexico

Most ofrepparttar hotels and resorts are south of San Miguel and are not within walking distance. However, there are numerous white taxicabs that are readily available. The larger and more luxurious resorts tend to be even further south of town alongrepparttar 139642 southwestern shores. This is actually not surprising since most ofrepparttar 139643 best scuba diving sites are southwest ofrepparttar 139644 island. An easy way to seerepparttar 139645 33 mile (53 km) by 9 mile (14 km) island is by renting a scooter or a 4x4. I once rented a scooter and zigzagged along most of San Miguel's streets to seerepparttar 139646 neighborhoods. Then I went onrepparttar 139647 main road leaving town and went south. After passing byrepparttar 139648 larger resorts and going aroundrepparttar 139649 southern tip ofrepparttar 139650 island, I foundrepparttar 139651 beaches alongrepparttar 139652 southeastern shores. The shores near San Miguel alongrepparttar 139653 crowded west coast are not known for beaches butrepparttar 139654 southeast part here have some really spectacular ones. Even better is that there is very little traffic here sorepparttar 139655 beaches are pretty quiet. Sometimes people can park their scooters and enjoy a beach all for themselves. There are a few stops with refreshments and more souvenirs at prices even better than in San Miguel. After traveling north again, there is a road about halfway uprepparttar 139656 island that goes across and takes you back to San Miguel enteringrepparttar 139657 town's east side. My scooter tour ofrepparttar 139658 island took just over 2 hours and cost $25 US forrepparttar 139659 rental. Cozumel has several ancient Mayan ruins but they are not nearly as large or spectacular asrepparttar 139660 ones onrepparttar 139661 mainland. After seeing some photos of them in advance of my trip, I didn't even bother to seerepparttar 139662 ruins.

Cozumel is a nice port of call for cruise ships as there are many shopping opportunities. Passengers who scuba dive or snorkel can easily book directly withrepparttar 139663 many dive shops in San Miguel without going through their cruise ships which will cost much more. For cruise ship tourists who do not intend to do any water sports and have some time after shopping, it is highly recommended to rent a scooter or 4x4 to tourrepparttar 139664 island. This is also a nice way to spendrepparttar 139665 last day of a scuba dive vacation in Cozumel.
