Cozumel can be visited in many different fashions. All inclusive, budget hotel, ocean front condo, or in town villa are all great options here. The selections of food choices are just as diverse, from interesting street foods to finer dining establishments. After visiting many different vacation locations over the years we have settled on Cozumel as our preferred destination of choice. It is the perfect balance of us of, location, beauty, food, price and a great local community.

    Our favorite hangout on the island. Great staff that works their tails off to make sure you are well taken care of. The margaritas are bigger than your head and very flavorful. The food is also very good here.

    This operator runs 2 basic tours that are excellent. The 5-6 hour day time excursion and the sunset sail. Both are tremendous bangs for you dollar. The crew goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great time. Going out on this boat is a must do for us each trip at least once. Many other excursions offer "sail" excursions but don't actually sail like this one does.

    We have loved this place for years, from its origins as a small empanada take out place to its current invention as a full service restaurant. While the empanadas are still excellent, their grilled items are tough to beat. The fresh catch of the day is always grilled to perfection and pairs with Rene's excellent selection of wines very well.

    When you are craving a steak this is the place. I have been stuck on ordering the Arracherra steak each time lately and it never disappoints. The queso fundido as an appetizer is the best on the island, since it is cooked on their grill it caramelizes fantastically well.
