Let’s be real.

If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you are planning a Cozumel vacation and are wondering about our Cozumel weather.

At Fly Cozumel, we get these questions a lot:

  • Is it going to rain?
  • When is hurricane season?
  • How hot does it get?
  • Will we be able to do the tour in July?

In the end, all of these questions boil down to one thing: you’re coming to frolic in the sun.

Have you ever asked yourself that bold and daunting question of Chichen Itza or Tulum?

If you’ve ever traveled to the Riviera Maya or have plans to do so then you probably have.

It’s a good question with a very nuanced answer. You see, there are a lot of factors to take into consideration when deciding which Mayan ruins to visit.

We’ll try and make it easier for you.

Yes, Day of the Dead is just around the corner, and we wouldn’t want to your body to rot waiting for all the otherworldly details about Mexico’s most beloved holiday.

Throughout Mexico, the holiday is known as Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. In Yucatan, however, the holiday is known by the name used by the Yucatec Maya of the region: Hanal Pixan.

Depending on the event and where you are, you can experience the magic of these special celebrations of life and death from the last week of October up until November 2nd.

Note: we’ve update the article on October 16 with more details on events in Cancun, Cozumel, and Playa del Carmen.

Thinking about visiting Cozumel? Just forget it.

Yes, that’s right.

No need to read again.

Thems fighting’ words for some, but then again, as the great H.I. McDunnough once said:

“There’s what’s right and there’s what’s right and never the ‘twain shall meet.”

So here it is. The scoop. The low-down. The hidden secrets of Cozumel Island no one else would ever dare to tell you brought to you by Fly Cozumel.

De nada.

When most people think of Cozumel ruins they’re likely conjuring up in their minds those iconic images of sites like Chichen Itza or Tulum.

While we don’t want to spoil it for you, it is important to start off by letting you know that the San Gervasio ruins in Cozumel are, ehm, more humble in nature.

Of course, that by no means implies that they are not impressive or played an important role in the history of the ancient Maya.

Not at all. It’s like having two kids and one is taller than the other. They’re both still special in their own right. That’s how it is with the Mayan ruins as well.

It’s just that you won’t find structures such as the great Kukulcan pyramid of Chichen Itza or a temple high on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

So now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s take a look at what you will find at this ancient archaeological site and one of our recommended things to do in Cozumel.

Cozumel beach clubs are to the island what a good sound system is to music. Without one, you may still enjoy the sweet melodies but man oh man what a difference that deep base and those speakers make.

As could be expected, beach clubs in Cozumel are among the most popular places to visit for locals and visitors alike.

After all, it’s nice to enjoy a nice stretch of beach while laying on a towel and reading a book, but there’s also something to hanging out on a lounger under the shade while you sip on a cold beer or cocktail and a dose of coconut shrimp or ceviche.

Are you coming to Cozumel Island for the first time on a cruise ship and aren’t sure what to expect?

To make it easy, we’ve decided it up into the following sections:

Happy Hour.

Those few minutes of alcoholic bliss where drinks come cheap and those frowns are turned upside down.

Even though both those statements may be a tad bit exaggerated, there is something special about the idea of happy hour.

And as a visitor to Cozumel or even a local, sometimes you just want to know where to go for that good deal.

That’s where we come in.

We’ve scoured the internet and hit the bars to bring you the top 10 Cozumel restaurants for happy hour.


Cozumel Mexico is a tropical paradise in the Mexican Caribbean.

The island is a major destination for regional tourism, particularly for scuba divers and cruise ship passengers.

In fact, Cozumel Island receives almost one million passengers a year just from cruise liners such as Royal Caribbean, MSC, Carnival, Norwegian Cruiselines, and Disney.

But what makes this island so special and where is it anyway?

Would you ever visit Paris and not go see the Eiffel Tower?

How about going to New York and not seeing Times Square?

Now think about it from another perspective.

Would you visit the Yucatan Peninsula and not take the time to explore the New Seven Wonder of the World that is Chichen Itza Mexico?

We didn’t think so.

Of course, a Chichen Itza tour from Cozumel can be complicated, especially due to factors such as time and distance, but remember that we can get you there in just 45 minutes (more on that later)!

But have no fear!

We’ve put together a list of the most common Chichen Itza facts, tips and tours from Cozumel to make sure you’re properly informed.

So where do we start?
