GETTING TO COZUMEL

BY AIR: The Island of Cozumel is served by Cozumel International Airport. The following airlines fly to Cozumel, check with your travel agent or call the airline directly to confirm.

BY FERRY: The primary gateway between Cozumel and the mainland of the Yucatan Peninsula, including Cancun and the Riviera Maya, is the passenger ferry from Playa del Carmen. Thousands of tourists and locals every day take the 45-minute ride to or from Cozumel. It's very easy, and runs nearly every hour. The ferry makes it a piece of cake to go to or from Riviera Maya on a day trip, which is especially popular with cruise ship passengers coming to the mainland to see attractions like the Mayan Ruins, Xcaret, or Xel Ha.
