Watersports are popular here and visitors can windsurf, jet ski, water ski, even swim with the dolphins.
Those looking for a culinary adventure will find it in the outstanding authentic Mexican food. Cancun is not a quiet, tranquil island and the nightlife is hot with plenty of clubs, resorts, bars, and restaurants. to keep everyone hopping. The ancient Mayan ruins at Tulum, Chichen-Itza, and Cobra are nearby and are not to be missed.
Mexico's largest Caribbean Island, Cozumel is considered one of the top five dive sites in the world. Its Palancar Reef, one of the largest in the world, attracts divers and snorkelers from around the globe. Quieter than its neighbor Cancun, Cozumel is what one thinks of as the ideal Caribbean island. Here you can visit ancient Mayan ruins, explore the undersea wonderland of caves and canyons, see birds native only to this island (Cozumel vireo and Cozumel thrasher), or bask on the sugar white beaches.
