Cozumel Environment

The island of Cozumel, Mexico lays 44-miles south of Cancún and 12-miles southeast of Playa del Carmen. Cozumel is 28-miles long and 11-miles wide. The majority of the island terrain is flat, undisturbed scrubland. Best known as one of the world's most spectacular dive destinations, Cozumel offers more breathtaking beauty underwater then it does on land. Cozumel's southwest coast offers divers billowing walls of seascape to explore.

Those who like to enjoy the water from a hammock will revel at Cozumel's beaches, that lie along the west and east sides of the island, home to numerous 'beach clubs'. Cozumel beach clubs are generally a palapa hut that's open to the public. Cozumel's beach clubs range from glamorous spots with pools, restaurants and water sport rentals; to very basic beach clubs which serve soft drinks and host a snack bar. Tourists who are looking for crowds should venture to beach clubs, especially on weekends when they are the most crowded. One such beach club is the all-inclusive Playasol, which grants access to beachgoers for about $50 a day. If you are looking to get away from crowds and paying for a day at the beach, Cozumel's small beaches can be found tucked between its many rocky peninsulas.
