5. Thing to do
As you’ve probably noticed in any beach town, mopeds are in vogue. And for a very good reason- they are extremely comfortable! My dad and I both rented a moped for the duration of our stay, and we used them all the time. It takes about an hour to an hour and a half to circle the entire island, without any stops. But you can easily take your time, stop at some cool destinations and enjoy yourself. Some other ways to explore Cozumel is by bicycle, or with a car.
I recommend you do this, because you’re going to see a different side of the island which isn’t as obvious if you don’t take the time to explore it. It takes you away from the tourist areas, and into the wilder side, where you can enjoy miles and miles of beaches and stunning nature. The stops along the way have some nice lookout points and a break from the touristic areas.
One really cool stop is El Mirador Beach, which is on the Eastern side of the island.
It’s a 40-minute moped ride from the main ferry port. Here you will find incredible views and the untouched Cozumel nature all around you. If you want some solitude while enjoying the stunning beach, this is a great place to visit. I have to say however, be extra cautious here, this is not the place you want to go swimming with the waves and currents.
