Best time to visit Cozumel: Although weather is never guaranteed, the best time to visit Cozumel and many parts of Mexico is mid January to April. During this time the temperature is just right and is also dry season. The fall (mid June to late November) is Carribbean hurricane season. Nothing ruins your beach vacation more than heavy rain. Cancun and Cozumel beaches get a lot of seaweed (sargassum) from June to October.
Best things to do in Cozumel: Cozumel is a very popular waterfront destination for beach vacations. It is a small island that packs a lot of beach activities. You will find lots to keep the kids happy at water parks or beach clubs such as Mr. Sanchos , Paradise Beach, Chankanaab Park, or visit Isla Pasion. Many Cozumel beaches offer safe swimming for children. For those who love adventure, you will love some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving anywhere and there is a wide variety of professionals to choose from to learn. So with so many fun things to do on your Cozumel vacation you will definitely want to ensure you have the very best Cozumel waterfront hotels to suit your taste.
Transportation: Hiring a private driver/guide is the most luxurious way to get around Cozumel but obviously the most costly. Cabs are plenty and well regulated. Cabs are probably your best option. Uber is not an option as we write this article. Cozumel does have public service but it is mostly for locals. It focuses around town and not outlying areas of Cozumel. Renting a Jeep for a day can be fun however this needs to be booked well ahead of time. Walking is great along the beach and tourist parts of town.
Safety: Cozumel is considered extremely safe. The local police and the local business community place much emphasis on keeping Cozumel safe for tourists and locals. Safe tourism is very important for the economy. As a tourist please do not purchase or take drugs anywhere on the island. As in any city, late night walking should be done cautiously and with another person. Beach safety is particularly hazardous on the East side of the Island. Take all safety precautions while scuba diving or swimming anywhere on the island.
