Best months to travel

Cozumel Travel Tips. The best time to visit Cozumel is from March to June when the island enjoys daytime temperatures around 90 degrees Fahrenheit and nighttime temperatures in the mid-70s. This short summer season is a sweet spot for visiting Cozumel: You’ll avoid the hurricane season and score a great hotel deal along the main thoroughfare in San Miguel. Plus, droves of sea turtles make their nests on the island in the summer, so this time of year is perfect for nature enthusiasts.


How to save money in Cozumel

Pay as the Mexicans do. Most places accept U.S. dollars, but you will usually get a better deal in pesos.

Avoid unnecessary expenses; there are some items that you can buy in your local grocery will save you some bucks. For example, pack your sunscreen, you can buy your sunblock in Cozumel, but you’ll probably pay double. Don’t forget the sunglasses, hats, and bug spray, either!


What to eat

Meals in Cozumel are built on a foundation of shellfish, seafood and common Mexican staples like beans, salsa, and tortillas. Many of the best restaurants in town offer local seafood, including affordable lobster dishes. Most can be found in downtown San Miguel, in addition to a number of local food stands that offer cheap, local fare that is ideal for a quick snack.


Getting Around Cozumel

Because so many activities are centralized in San Miguel, there is very little need for a vehicle. But if you’re going beyond the downtown area or staying in one of the hotels on the west side, a rental car is a good investment. The best way to enjoy the amazing views of the island is on a jeep. If you do decide to drive, your U.S. driver’s license is valid in Mexico.
