Cruise travel is one of the most cost-effective ways to visit different places in the world, either for a romantic or family trip, here we leave you the perfect place to visit at a Caribbean Cruise.
If you are thinking of joining the club of cruise passengers and navigate the waters of the Caribbean, one of the sites we recommend you is Cozumel also called “Isla de las Golondrinas” (Swallow Island). This island is located in the southeastern of Mexico, on the coast of Quintana Roo, at a distance of 60 kilometers south of Cancun and at 20 kilometers from the coast.
Here are a few recreational and cultural activities you can do on this beautiful island when you descend from the boat:
If you’re tired of the pool’s cruise, we invite you to swim in the crystal clear turquoise waters of Cozumel, but if you’re looking to get a perfect tan, you should just lie down on the soft, warm sand, read your favorite book or listen to your best playlist, relax and sunbathing (we advise you to wear biodegradable sunscreen at least every two hours so it will not lose effectiveness and protect your skin from ultraviolet rays).
Interaction with marine mammals
In this beautiful island, Dolphin Discovery is located inside the Chankanaab National Park and gives the cruise passengers a wonderful opportunity to interact with the dolphins through its various swim programs. In addition, the participants and their companions are offered to stay on site to relax, enjoy good regional typical food and cold drinks or, if you are willing to, enter to the educational presentation of sea lions and meet the friendly manatees.
If what you want is to learn more about the Mayan culture, the archeological site San Gervasio should be on your list of places to visit, because in it you can explore various ruins and a sanctuary dedicated to Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of fertility and love.
If you are a nature lover you came to the right place! When you immerse in the waters of Cozumel you can admire a huge variety of tropical fish and underwater statues that will blow you away.
Chankanaab National Park
Chankanaab National Park is located within the National Marine Park of Cozumel and its name means ‘Small Sea’. It is an amazing place where you can go diving, try the zip line, watch the alligators at a very close distance, eat some delicious handmade tortillas and observe more than 60 replicas of the different cultures of Quintana Roo, among other activities.
Now that you know everything Cozumel has to offer, do you dare to embark on the adventure?
