  Port Map

San Miguel de Cozumel cruise port is on the Cozumel Island, part of the Quintana Roo state (Mexico), located on the Yucatán Peninsula's eastern part. This is the most visited port of call on cruises to Western Caribbean. This Mexican port destination attracts international tourists (mostly from the USA) with its tropical weather, snorkeling, diving and sea fishing opportunities, shopping and sightseeing. The island has population of around 75,000, and its main town is named San Miguel de Cozumel.Cozumel (Mexico) cruise port

Cozumel Island offers some of the world's best underwater tour activities, with its main tourist attractions being the offshore coral reefs and numerous diving shops and tour operators. The main diving areas are located on the island's western side. Its east side is relatively undeveloped, but has amazing beaches with beach restaurants every few miles.

Chankanaab National Park is located approx 5,5 ml (9 km) south of San Miguel. The park is opened daily (between 7 am - 5 pm) and as amenities offers a lagoon, beach, restaurant, full-service bar, changing rooms, several walking trails. There you can enjoy snorkeling, scuba diving, SeaTREK helmet diving, swimming with dolphins. Another major attraction is the Cozumel Pearl Farm. This is an active farm surrounded by a mangrove lagoon and accessible only by boat.

The local economy depends heavily on tourism. The island's tropical climate determines rainy season from June through November, and dry season from December through May. The wet season is also characterized by hurricanes.


Highlights: San Miguel, San Gervasio Mayan ruins, Coral reefs

Cozumel cruise terminal

San Miguel de Cozumel cruise port has three different piers for docking. They all are located on the west side of the island. If in your cruise itinerary to Cozumel is added “Fundeo”, that means the cruise ship will anchor in the harbor and passengers will be transported to and from the shore (Punta Langosta pier) via the ship's tender boats.

Punta Langosta Pier Cruise Terminal

Punta Langosta pier is located right downtown San Miguel. You can walk on your own or join guided walking tour in the city. There is also a taxi rank in front the pier. Taxis are relatively inexpensive. If you want to rent a car, the closest offices are 5 blocks from the cruise ship pier.Cozumel Punta Langosta cruise ship terminal

International Pier

The oldest Cozumel cruise ship pier serves mainly NCL ships. The pier is located about 1,5 ml (2,5 km) from downtown San Miguel (to the south). The distance is easily walkable (about 30 min), and most pleasant as it is along the waterfront promenade. There is also a taxi rank in front the cruise ship pier. Taxi ride is approx 10 min. If the lines of disembarking passengers waiting for taxis are long, you can exit the pier, walk toward El Cid La Ceiba Hotel and catch a taxi on the street there.

Carnival's Puerta Maya Cruise Terminal

The third Cozumel cruise ship pier was built by Carnival Corporation and serves exclusively its brand companies' vessels. Puerta Maya is located 0,5 ml (0,8 km) south of The International Pier. The terminal (aka “Little Cozumel”) has the most modern and diverse facilities.Cozumel Puerta Maya cruise ship terminal (Carnival)

  • In October 2015, Carnival Corporation inaugurated the opening of a parallel berth to the Puerta Maya pier. Carnival Freedom was the first ever ship to dock there. Since then, the Puerta Maya pier has capacity of 4 vessels that can be berthed there simultaneously.
