Embark on a leisurely tropical day trip to Cozumel Island, Mexico. After a scenic ferry ride to the island, enjoy beach perks like sunbathing, swimming, and playing at Playa Mia Grand Beach and Water Park, a one-of-a-kind theme park and seashore. Downtown Cozumel is full of bright buildings and quaint shops, and you'll have plenty of time to explore them before returning to the mainland. This is a great, carefree way to enjoy this island paradise.
Your 8-hour trip to Cozumel Island begins with pickup at your hotel in Cancun, Playa del Carmen or the Riviera Maya. Cozumel Island is the largest inhabited island in Mexico and the former Mayan capital of the region. Spend a day at the beach to get the full scope of this nearly impossibly beautiful shoreline.
Kick back on the beach and catch some sun at Playa Mia Grand Beach and Water Park, as you look out over the sparkling blue Caribbean. Swim in the ocean or let loose at the water park's Oasis Island Pool, chill in the Floating Park, or shoot down the 200-foot-long (61-meter) Twin Twister Waterslides. Kids can roam the Buccaneer's Bay kids' pool, staged with a pirate ship, water cannons and slides. Snack on foods from the buffet of salads, sides, and delicious main dishes.
Once you've soaked in some rays, take a break from the beach to explore Cozumel's downtown shopping district. Peruse the shops, notice the remarkably colorful buildings and stroll the quaint streets. At the end of the day, board the ferry back to Playa del Carmen and enjoy drop-off at your hotel.
