Cozumel Travel Guide
Travellers looking to vacation in Mexico get all their wishes fulfilled in Cozumel. The beauty of its beaches and wealth of things to do seduce even the pickiest tourists into booking a flight.
Cozumel is renowned for the beauty of its coral reefs; their multicoloured marine life is impressive. Adventurous divers can immerse themselves in history admiring the Spanish galleons run aground on certain reefs.
Tourists can visit several archaeological sites. When the wind blows on the Tumba del Caracol Mayan temple, the shells embedded in its dome sing, offering an intriguing musical show.
Nature lovers adore this corner of Mexico. Not to be missed: the Parque Chankanaab, a nature reserve that boasts more than 350 plant species as well as a natural aquarium.

Presence of Sargassum in Mexico and the Caribbean
Depending on the weather conditions, winds and tides may bring large quantities of Sargassum to shore. Since seaweed moves with the ocean currents, quantities may vary by place and day. Transat would like to inform its clients that this natural phenomenon beyond its control affects several parts of Mexico and the Caribbean. Although the presence of this brown seaweed is greater than usual, our hotel partners are making every effort to clean the beaches when necessary.
