Frequently asked questions about Cozumel

Planning Your Visit

  • When to go

    Weather-wise, the best time to visit Cozumel is between the late autumn and early spring, when temperatures remain warm and dry. That said, this is also the peak season, so the island is at its most crowded. If you'd rather avoid the rush but still want to enjoy good weather, your best bet is late spring, before the start of the rainy season in June.

  • Ride scooters responsibly

    Scooters are a fun and highly popular way to get around the island. There are many rental places, with rates around $20-30 per day. However, make sure to exercise care as crashes are very frequent amongst tourists. Wearing a helmet is not only a good idea, but legally mandatory (police are on the look-out for riders without helmets and the fine is $25).

Mega good tour! Small group of 6 people! The crew spoke English. Got drinks on the boat and clean gear! We had a little delay due to the ferry, the guide had called me and was waiting for us! I would do it again and again! Thank you so much!

Jorge was very helpful for our family of 15. When I asked to move up our pickup time, by an hour, to return to the airport, Jorge was able to accommodate us and had 2 large taxi vans ready and waiting. Thank you!!

It was very entertaining, and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone, who wants to relax and have great time.
