Oh to be a Luxury Travelista in Cozumel. The beauty of the island’s white, sandy shores never ceases to amaze guests and visitors alike. This pristine jewel continues to be one of the brightest stars in the Caribbean collection.
Settled by indigenous Mayan inhabitants some 2,000 years ago, the name Cozumel is derived from the words Cuzam (which means swallow) and Lumil (meaning land of). The Spaniards assigned the present day pronunciation of the name upon their arrival to the Yucatan Peninsula in the late 16th century.
Until 1961, the island was better known for being a quiet fishing town. Then, Jacques Costeau the French explorer put Cozumel on the map by using it as his back drop to film many of his under water scuba adventures.
From that time until now, Cozumel has been constantly evolving as the perfect ‘travelista’ destination in the Mayan Riviera. The island has it all; historic ruins from Aztec civilizations gone by like that of Tulum, decadent shopping, oceanside massages, luxurious tropical temperatures and top notch resort style service.
The Luxury Travelista in Cozumel will find that there is no lack of “all included” leisure activities, water sport options and fabulous duty free shopping outlets to choose from. Add to this copious amounts of year-round sun, sea, sky and amazing food.
