Cozumel is one of Mexico’s top tourist destinations and for lots of good reasons. The island situated off Mexico’s coast, in the Caribbean, offers plenty of fun, whether you want to strap on your snorkel gear and dive below the waves or just soak in some rays on the beach. For those seeking all-out luxury, high-end resorts are easy to find, as are all-inclusive properties. The tropical climate promises great weather nearly all year long. The food is delicious. And, even though Cozumel is a small island, it still is large enough to be home to various neighborhoods and cities, so you can pick the best area for you to stay, depending on the type of trip you’re envisioning.
So, where are the best places to stay in Cozumel, Mexico? Here are our top picks.

The bayside property offers views of the water from just about every angle, while keeping you a convenient mere 5 minutes away from downtown and the airport. This hotel offers quite a few water activities to its guests, too. Beyond swimming and snorkeling, you can try kite surfing, kayaking or sailing.

If you prefer the security and familiarity of staying with a well-known international brand, check out The Westin Cozumel.
The resort is nicely located to give you easy access to a variety of nightlife, tours, museums and even the Mayan ruins. However, if you’d prefer just to stay on-site for the duration of your vacay, you’ll still find lots to do there, too, from chilling in your cabana on the beach to swimming in your private plunge pool to checking out the views from the hotel’s lounge, which it boasts is the highest on the entire island.

But for those who’d prefer something a little more local, on the smaller side and budget-friendly, Playa Azul might be a good pick.
The property offers a variety of great amenities, including unlimited access to the golf course at Cozumel Country Club, a spa, beach club and scuba center.

If it’s all-out luxury you want, though, try the Presidente InterContinental brand’s Cozumel outpost, which is arguably the most luxurious property on the island.
It’s also the only resort in Cozumel with its own private beach. All the while, you’re just a few minutes from the airport and Mayan ruin sites. Expect gorgeous guest rooms, world-class dining and more.
