The Mayans of antiquity established commercial ports and ceremonial areas within the island. Centuries later, Cozumel has maintained its naval importance. Nearly all mayor cruise lines dock within its harbor, giving their passengers the opportunity to discover the island’s traditions, its natural wonders and its picturesque urban nucleus: the little town of San Miguel. There, we find a wide selection of restaurants, cafes, boutiques and colorful shops that sells souvenirs and Mayan crafts. Likewise, the island boasts a surprising number of luxury hotels.
