Things to do in Cozumel

So you are coming to Mexico and need a few things to do in Cozumel because you have a non-diver friend traveling with you. We understand, it happens. If you are unable to shake them, and we are unable to convince them to try scuba diving in Cozumel, then we can help you with other ideas to help keep them entertained while you come diving with us.

Are you looking for things to do in Cozumel Mexico?

I am slowly building this list for our divers looking for things to do while they are visiting Cozumel. It is a growing list as we gradually do and experience each of these items for ourselves.

Go Scuba!

First things first, if you are not already a client of Salty Endeavors, allow me to mention that the number one thing to do in Cozumel is go scuba diving. And I might be biased, but I do suggest you dive with us! For certified divers, check out what we offer in our dive packages. If you have never been scuba diving before, worry not, we can get you scuba diving today. Check out our information for introductory scuba diving. Not up for diving? Or not everyone in your group is a diver? We also cater to snorkelers.

Relax in El Cielo

A favorite group activity is taking one of our private charters to El Cielo, or The Heavens. Simply put, it is a picture-perfect Caribbean postcard setting where you can snorkel with starfish or stand in the shallows drinking beer watching the sun slowly fade away while stingrays swim among your feet. Private charters are available to experience your slice of heaven on earth. For more information please scroll to the bottom of this page.

Cenote Tours

We have a number of cenotes on Cozumel which are easily accessible, and some that are not so easily accessible. Depending on how dedicated you are, you can reach nearly 20 mapped cenotes on Cozumel. However, we suggest you stick with just 2 or 3 for starters. Perhaps the most popular one of Cozumel is Cenote Aerolite de Paraiso. It is a fantastic cenote worthy of a visit from any visiting Cozumel. You can find more details about this cenote on our blog about the excursion.

All About Turtles

In the spring season lucky tourists have the opportunity to assist with marking sea turtle nests. This is an overnight excursion but gets you up close and personal with female turtles as they lay their eggs. Alternatively, the fall those same eggs hatch, and you have the opportunity to watch and assist. This is a always a favorite experience among our divers.

Art Lovers

For the art lovers out there, we have a wonderful mural collection on the island. Back in the summer of 2015 a large group of international artists converged on Cozumel to paint our walls in an amazing assortment of murals. Over 30 large murals in all not decorate the streets of Cozumel. To see all of them in one day you will need bicycle at the minimum. However, if you are a fan or art and artist, this is a must-do thing in Cozumel on our visit. Check out our photos with included maps for more information.

Cozumel Mexico Things to Do

Off Road Adventure

If you are up for an adventure, there is always the off-road trek to the north lighthouse. Punta Molas is a challenging excursion for the hardcore enthusiast. Don’t be mistaken, this drive isn’t about going to a nice beach and secluded location. The adventure is getting there. If this adventure sounds up your alley, keep an eye on our blog section About Cozumel, which details our land based excursions.

Find a Beach

Finally, what list of things to do in Cozumel would be complete without any mention of our world class Cozumel beaches and beach bars? Fret not, I have painstakingly visited and experienced every single beach of Cozumel. Okay maybe I missed the one that charges over $100 entrance fee.. but otherwise I’ve covered them all. Hard work, but I did it all for you! For all the details you should check out my info blog on the topic.

More Things to do in Cozumel coming soon…

There are so many other things to do in Cozumel that my list can be near endless. As I like to tell my divers looking for stuff to do, Cozumel sees roughly 12 million tourist visitors yearly. Our entire economy lives and dies off of tourism. If a tourist wants to do something, there is a very high likelihood that we have it available to you on this island. Until I can experience the next tour for myself,  contact us and let us know what it is you want to do and we’ll help you get that taken care of during your stay!
