Oct 24, 15 How to make your holiday in Cozumel truly unique

A lot of people, when planning their vacations in the Caribbean Sea, choose very iconic locations, such as Barbados or Belize, even Antigua and Barbuda. However, if you want a holiday a bit out of the ordinary, then you should really consider Cozumel, a small island pertaining to Mexico, which has plenty to offer both in terms of heritage and in terms of fun and excitement. The island is particularly attractive to passionate divers, as it has amazing locations for scuba divers, but it also great opportunities for Cozumel excursions to explore the area. Due to these facts, the island has known quite a development over the years and now it’s an important touristic hub for Mexico. As more and more travellers chose the island as their holiday destination, more and more agencies and tour operators began developing packages for tourists and more hotels and resorts were founded. But if you want a truly unique holiday, you might want to stay off the beaten track.

 

Stay with locals

The thought of a spacious, luxurious hotel room with all the amenities you could dream of and the possibility of breakfast in bed may all sound amazing, but you do that every vacation, don’t you? Why not try something different, like renting a local’s house or even staying with locals, to get a better sense of the life on the island and the local colour. It’s a great way to learn more about the history of the places you see and maybe find out less known facts or even stories that regular hotel receptionists won’t be able to tell you. In addition, this type of accommodation will be a lot cheaper than a hotel, which means extra money for you to explore the island.

 

Book Cozumel excursions or tours

Exploring the island on your own, at your own pace, is a great idea and it will help you relax and enjoy the beauty of the place, but there is much to be said about the organised Cozumel excursions, as they will take you to all the right places and allow you to enjoy activities you might never think of, such as Jeep tours or ATV tours along the island. Some tours even include swimming with the dolphins or dinner cruises, which can be very fun and truly unique experiences. All these will definitely make your holiday very different than the rest of the vacations you had, where your main activities were sunbathing and cocktail drinking.

 

Dive

 

Even if you’re not a passionate diver, even if you’ve never done scuba diving before, if you’re in Cozumel, be sure to do it. You’ve got the Arrecifes de Cozumel National Park and the Museo Subacuático de Arte’s, both of which are unique places to explore, not to mention the underwater caverns and the breath taking lagoons.
