Visitors heading to the beautiful and coveted Maya Riviera region of Mexico already understand that the entire area is one replete with luxury resorts, world-class beaches and some of the finest golf courses in all of Mexico. There is an ideal balance of new, tourism sites and services as well as historic and ecological sites as well. Whether you wish to visit historic Mayan ruins and dine in a four-star restaurant or you want to spend entire days on the water or beneath the waves diving and snorkeling, this area has it all.
One thing that the Maya Riviera also has is its own gorgeous island - Cozumel. Set in the central portion of the Maya Riviera, and adjacent to the equally appealing, mainland city of Playa del Carmen, Cozumel is noted for its impressive beaches, its remarkably friendly locals, and its wonderful dining.
Though small, picturesque and well preserved, it has its very own city, San Miguel and an international airport. Daily ferries make a point of transporting travelers and locals alike to and from Playa del Carmen, and you can even enjoy the use of a car ferry if you wish to bring your vehicle to or from the mainland. Cozumel is so popular that cruise ships stop here, docking alongside the downtown area too.
Though well stocked with the same sort of resort and hotel properties as the mainland, the island also offers private, luxury villas as well. These ensure you get to enjoy the endless scenery, beach access, and proximity to the best the island and region has to offer, but in a truly private, peaceful and premium setting.
At Isle Blue, we work with our clients to help them book a Cozumel holiday that provides just the right amount of luxury and comfort, activity and experience and world-class support to create an unforgettable experience.
Because most visitors head to Cozumel for its beaches and amazing diving, our custom concierge services can help you find the right dive operators and locations. As one of the best diving regions in the entire western hemisphere, Cozumel has a large variety of dive shops, private boats, and classes that allow beginners to be certified by some of the best trainers available.
In addition to diving, many travelers come for snorkeling, sailing, and boat tours. The center of the island is also home to some truly remarkable archeological sites dating to the Mayan period. At the south of the island, visitors may even spend time in what is believed to have been a Mayan lighthouse!
Clients in Isle Blue villas always have the option of arranging for household staff, including a chef. However, with the local restaurants offering some of the finest authentic cuisine, it is a good idea to head to San Miguel's downtown area to sample some of the best. Casa Denis is noted as the oldest restaurant on the island and serves both Yucatan Peninsula and Mayan specialties. Casa Mission is also famous for its surroundings and setting, and both Kinta and Kondeas are popular for their contemporary cuisine and excellent surroundings.
Easy to reach by air or ferry, beautiful and historic, and offering the best blend of leisure and activities, the island of Cozumel may become your favorite destination for a luxurious and unforgettable holiday.
