Cozumel is the largest Caribbean island in Mexico as well as one of the country's top spots for tourism. The island, which gets its name from the Mayan word "Cuzamil" meaning "Island of Swallows," focuses on tourist activities as its primary source of income.

Attractions in Cozumel are safe and friendly, as the island is eager to welcome single, families, seniors, and anyone who loves exotic places, sandy beaches, and delicious food.

One of the most popular Cozumel activities is shopping. The best shopping is arguably found in San Miguel, the island's largest city. Walk along the Puerta Maya Pier or head into downtown for an even bigger variety of shops. You can find items like handcrafted jewelry and leather goods, not to mention tequila and kitchen spices for a fraction of the cost you will see elsewhere.

Aside from shopping, there is plenty to do in Cozumel. Local sites in Cozumel include the Discover Mexico Park, the San Gervasio Mayan Ruins, and Xcaret, a natural theme park. You can also take part in one of the many Cozumel tours, some of which allow you to explore anything on the map of the island by horseback or snorkel along the shore.

These must see ruins take you back to the 13th century when Mayans ruled the land.
