An old lighthouse-turned-museum also offers a historical perspective of the protected area. The lighthouse offers panoramic views of the area, and legends say the building whistles when a storm is approaching. You'll find a bar and eatery at the site, so don't worry about bringing a packed lunch.

Where to stay in Cozumel

Most accommodations in Cozumel line the island's western shoreline, offering excellent beach access and the airport. Avenida Rafael E. Melgar provides the widest range of hotels and private rentals, with some of the more spacious and relaxed options sitting around 10 km (6.2 mi) south of the town center. Budget-conscious travelers should look to the main township, where a selection of smaller guesthouses and pensions can be found just a few streets back from the beach.
