Local Information

Cozumel Flag

La Isla de Cozumel lies approximately 45 miles (72 km) south of Cancun, with its own international airport and is served by many major airlines as well as by frequent passenger ferries from Playa del Carmen.

The largest inhabited island in Mexico, Cozumel is situated about 12 miles (19 km) off the eastern coast of the mainland Yucatán Peninsula. 

The limestone karst plateau that forms the base of the island is 34 miles (55 km) long north-to-south and 11 miles (18 km) wide east-to-west and, despite the boom in tourist and residential development due to its tropical climate, the island retains large expanses of untouched jungle and beaches.

The island is one of the top SCUBA diving destinations in the world thanks to stunning coral reefs, part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the largest reef in the Western Hemisphere and second-largest reef in the world, located just off the coast. The warm, clear water, with visibility often as great as 200 feet (60 meters), will treat you to incredible and memorable diving or snorkeling.

Between the north and south hotel zones on the island's west coast is the vibrant city of San Miguel de Cozumel, population 77,236 in 2010. This safe, extraordinarily friendly, mostly English-fluent, Mayan/Mexican community has managed to retain its own customs and cultural identity despite the increasing influx of visitors. 

You’ll find wonderful dining and great shopping just minutes from Casa Suzana.
