Fun and food at Central Plaza
Although most tourists come to Cozumel for its divine beaches and world-class diving, the town also offers its own brand of fun. The Central Plaza is a hub of Cozumel living, with shops, restaurants and excellent entertainment options.
The Plaza is home to big-name stores, local boutiques and market stalls selling street food, which often serve visitors the best meals of their trip. On most nights, Central Plaza hosts dancing shows, fire twirling or live music, which is free to watch. Sunday is the most popular day with local families, who often put on their best outfits for the occasion.
Dive the Felipe Xicotencatl Shipwreck
Cozumel is well known for its myriad of reefs filled with abundant marine life sitting close to shore, but if you venture a little further into the sea, you can discover the Felipe Xicotencatl Shipwreck.
Most of the scuba operators in the area offer a wreck dive as one of their packages, with an agreement between them ensuring there aren’t too many people diving the site at one time. The wreck is easy to explore, because it has large holes in the sides for straightforward access. A lot of tropical fish call the ship home, making it easy to get caught up in the fascinating ecosystem.
