Visit Cozumel in the Off-Season

Cozumel is a very beautiful island situated just thirty minutes off the shore of Rivera Maya. The islands in Cozumel boasts some of the best diving spots and snorkelling in the entire Caribbean. Also, there are so many things you can do and see on the land as well. To help you get ready for your trip to the wonderful islands in Cozumel, we’ve organised some helpful tips to help you have a wonderful vacation in the islands.

 

Ferry away: Cozumel is an island, this means- asides from flying in and out by airplane, the only way to get to the island is by a ferry. If you are coming or going, always try to make sure you are aware of when the last ferry sails in order not to miss the boat. The last ferry from Playa del Carmen leaves for Cozumel at 11 pm and at 10 pm from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen.

Make sure you learn about the traffic signs: If you choose to rent a car, then this is important to you. Traffic signs in Cozumel aren’t totally tourist friendly. Most are in Spanish, and they may be way different than what you see regularly. However, you don’t have to panic; you can ask the locals or the car rental shop for information and advice.

Money!: when you are making larger purchases in Cozumel, it is better to pay in pesos. There are several ways of exchanging your dollars to pesos, and the most economic and simplest way to do so is to withdraw from any ATM at any bank, rather than the ones on the streets. You’ll get the best exchange rate this way.

Best places to swim: There are so many options for taking a swim or going snorkelling. Nevertheless, we still recommend that you swim at the South side of the island because the currents on the Northern side are much stronger and not safe for swimming.

Have some fun and enjoy the Caribbean: Relax, relax and relax! You are in Cozumel on vacation, all you have to do is ease off the stress of the big cities, the everyday traffic and all the noises. Enjoy the experience and change of pace, be yourself, have fun!
