Turtle Nets.

If you are in Cozumel Island between the months of May through November, you may witness one of the most beautiful natural journeys. Hundreds of sea turtles come to the eastern beaches of Cozumel every year to build their nests and lay their eggs.

The season starts in May and a couple of months later, tiny hatchlings emerge from their eggs and make their way to the ocean on their instinctive journey that begins every evening around 5 pm.

You will definitely want to include this in your day tour in Cozumel, Mexico during these months.

Coconuts, bar and grill

Stop at Coconuts, a popular hangout with the vacation crowd with an amazing view, to sip a drink or take beautiful pictures.

lt is situated on top of the highest point in Cozumel Island and is accessible via a long and winding staircase made of natural coral rock.

Statue of The Lookout. 

Preserved in its most natural state, the Lookout Statue is a must see place in Cozumel. It is not a standard classic beach. Large rock formations just out into the open ocean with some natural bridges and tidal pools whirling around.

Over thousands of years, the coral rock that composes the Caribbean Sea bed has been pounded by waves which turned the coral reef into these magnificent formations.

Climb and walk across to the end where the ocean spray meets this natural rock bridge.

National Park Punta Sur. 

Far from the tourist crowds, you will find a true off-the-beaten-path discovery of one of nature’s masterpieces.

Punta Sur National Park is the biggest natural Eco-reserve on Cozumel Island.

This area is known for its mangrove-lined lagoons, which offer a wide array of local flora and fauna.

Enjoy the most beautiful beach of Cozumel, climb up our Celarain lighthouse and take amazing photos of crocodiles, exotic birds, fish and flowers.
