Cozumel Guide

Guide

Cozumel, measuring 45kms long and 16kms wide. is Mexico's largest island. Situated 19kms off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, the island is famous for its stunning powdery beaches and the remarkable clarity of the surrounding Caribbean Sea. During the early 1900's Cozumel was originally a very quiet fishing island, but in 1961 a local called Jacques Cousteau confirmed it to be the best place to scuba dive anywhere on earth, especially with its stunning 30 to 40 metre visibility. Book car hire in Cozumel right here, and see the sights from the comfort of your own vehicle.

Explore Cozumel

There are so many amazing dive sights in Cozumel. The area is also famous for its open water diving. Cozumel and nearby Akumal have many magnificent caves and caverns which were formed over millions of years ago from the continuous erosion of the river. It is now a perfect spot for diving.

Take a trip to the stunning crystal clear blue waters of the Xel-Ha lagoon. This 'National Underwater Park' was very sacred to the past tribes of the Maya, but today it is used for sunbathers, snorkelers and tourists visiting the small aquarium. There are also a few places to eat and drink. There are three great beaches on the island; one is at Chankanaab National Park, while the other two, Playa San Francisco and Playa Palancar, are about 16kms away. The San Gervasio ruins date back to 100 BC, and are very popular with visitors from all over the world.

San Miguel de Cozumel is the islands only town, which comes to life when many cruise liners and other boats dock in the port. Additionally, with ferries travelling to the mainland you could do a spot of shopping, dine out in fabulous restaurants and sight see. For those who love to snorkel get over to the 'Dos Ojos Cave System', this is a site not to be missed.

Several fascinating places are found within an easy daytrip from Cozumel, including: the famous archaeological site of Chichén Itzá; Tulum (the only Mayan city built overlooking the sea); and Tikal, set among lush jungle settings.

Transport

The majority of tourists visiting the island of Cozumel arrive at the island’s international airport, from the US. There is also the option to fly to nearby Cancun Airport, which offers transfers via Aero-Cozumel.

Car rental companies are available at Cozumel airport, however there is a limited supply of rental companies and therefore a small selection of cars to choose from. For more options on cars please book in advance online. Using our price comparator we can quickly compare the market to help find you the cheapest deals.

Adventurous travellers can ride the water jet from Playa Del Carmen to Cozumel; journey time is 35 minutes.

Additionally, cruise ships make regular stops at the port.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
