Cozumel, an island located just offshore from Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, is just 36 miles south of Cancun, but the quiet island is a world away in ambience from that bustling resort. Cozumel, best known for its snorkeling and scuba diving, is a friendly destination, with a few luxury resorts, spectacular coral reefs, and colorful, affordable shopping in the island's capital of San Miquel.
Cozumel is a popular cruise ship destination, but when the ships pull up their anchors the island reverts to its laid-back, uncrowded ways. Visitors can fly into the island directly from Miami, Houston, Chicago, or a number of other cities. You can also take a short flight from Cancun or a half-hour boat ride from Playa del Carmen, along the Riviera Maya.
Popular hotels on Cozumel include the all-inclusive Allegro Resort, located on the south end of the island; the affordable El Cozumeleno, another all-inclusive, beachfront resort, this one located just outside of San Miquel; and the Fiesta Americana, arguably the best hotel on the island and the one that's nearest the popular diving reef at Palancar.
Wedding guest will be able to get around easily for your Cozumel wedding. Taxis are affordable as are car rentals, and many attractions are within walking distance from major hotels.
