For non-divers, the options do not stop being good, of course there are the beaches and the Caribbean Sea to practice snorkeling and water activities. Exploring the island is also a very interesting activity, rent a jeep and give full to the island around you will discover passages and views very beautiful, the sea on the opposite side overlooking Playa del Carmen is very different here wave is stronger for being open ocean but the feeling of the wind in your face and the majesty of the view is spectacular.

Cozumel has wonderful archaeological sites as tourist center of San Gervasio, the ruins of El Caracol, El Cedral, Castillo Real, Ixlapak and Hanan, each of these sites really amazing stories to tell. It also has museums, one of the most important was the first luxury hotel opened in 1936 showing in one of its rooms a portion of one of its reefs; Lighthouse is also Celarin which shows other historical relics from surrounding lights.

Playa del Carmen is a handy option too, the crossing by boat from Cozumel to Playa only takes about 35-40 min. and hourly boats leave from side to side, so if you are in Cozumel and want to take a trip to Playa to stroll through its Fifth Avenue, go shopping or "blowout" Beach, will have no problem.
