Mayan myth claims that Cozumel was home to the gods. Truly Cozumel is a place fit for the gods, with its dazzling white-sand beaches, ruined Mayan temples, exotic jungle wildlife, and crystalline waters teeming with tropical fish. Just offshore lay Palancar Reef, considered one of the most spectacular coral formations in all the Caribbean. Of course, the gods weren't the only individuals attracted to this terrestrial paradise: during its long and colorful history, Cozumel has been home to pirates, buccaneers, and freebooters, including Sir Henry Morgan and Jean Lafitte. Today's traveler will discover the same ravishing beauty and relaxation that entertained gods and pirates alike.
Extensive ruins of the ancient Mayan civilization are scattered across the region, including Coba and the renowned coastal site of Tulum on mainland Mexico.
Dig your toes into the white sands of Cozumel's coast, where aquamarine waters beckon you to the breathtaking paradises of Playa Mia Grand Beach Park and secluded Passion Island Beach.
The ecological/archeological theme park of X-Caret is one of the most popular attractions on the Yucatan Peninsula. Among its great treasures are underground rivers, a replica of a Mayan village, and a Mexican cultural show.
Alabaster-white beaches, gentle surf, coral reefs and a slow lifestyle make Playa del Carmen the place for backpackers, archeological buffs and New Age sun worshippers.

It is no secret that Cozumel excels with clear waters and spectacular reefs.
The museum houses two floors of exhibits. El Cedral is a small century-old ruin, the island's first settlement founded by Spanish explorers in 1518.
