Cozumel is Mexico's largest Caribbean Island at about 30 miles long and 10 miles wide. It is situated 6.2 miles off the mainland and lies around 56 miles south of Cancun. San Miguel, which is Cozumel's only town, lies on the western shore of the Island facing the mainland. San Miguel de Cozumel is host to the vast majority of the Islands population (77,236 in 2010), which is not surprising when you consider that a large amount of the Island is covered by dense jungle.
Cozumel is an island off the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, originally known to the Mayans as Cuzamil (“Island of the Swallows”).
San Miguel de Cozumel is the main town on the island, and is home to one of the major cruise ports in the world.
Cozumel has become a well-known tourist destination, famous for its white sandy beaches and abundant aquatic life, making it a top destination for divers and snorkelers alike.
