We came here to do a little shopping in the morning before the other cruise ships came in. It was the right choice. We found many good deals and agreed on many good prices. We bought NFL panchos, leather Beer holders, and even a few knock off MK and Coach purses and backpacks. They were extremely good quality for being... More

In the past few years the plaza has been made more user friendly and has improved landscaping. The spray fountain is a must stop for kids to play in on a hot day. Evenings now feature a light and sound show at the fountain.

We explored the town center of San Miguel during our time in port. We found it to be very picturesque, clean and safe. There are lots of restaurants, shops and senic areas. We visited the Catholic Church is the area and loved it. There are beautiful mureals and statutes throughout the town square providing lots of picture moments. It's a... More

Had dinner here twice this trip. One day we were fortunate enough to catch this group of younger men doing dance/athletic/gym moves. They were powerful and we were captivated by there talent and energy. We tipped generously but it would be nice if some program could be set up with groups like this so they become a regular feature here.

In the Plaza, there are fountains during the day and in the evening the fountains are lit with music in the background. We love to walk over to the Plaza after dinner and sit and watch the show. During the days, children play in the fountains( ground level) which is an entertaining sight.

Lots of stuff to buy but pretty much the same in each shop. Ate wonderful churros there. Bought trinkets and walked around.

It all depends what are you looking for when you travel to Cozumel? If you are looking to shop around, ok. This place is surrounded by shops. Not for us! Mexican food, walk in the city, there is more options. For a walk, it is fine. The Plaza has a few benches to sit, wait and look at the activities... More

Given that every storefront you pass has someone in front of it, trying to get your attention, this Plaza has some relatively quiet spots. There is shade and some benches that make this a nice place to sit and relax.

Every good city in Mexico will have a plaza where locals get together to see and be seen. This place has restaurants, local shops, ice cream places, water splash to kids, a clock, a church, a small cultural center... It worth to go and walk in a warm afternoon.

Last time we were in Cozumel they were re-doing this area and it was under construction. It's a nice welcome space amid street after street of vendors. Kids were playing, guitar's and street statues, etc... Nice colorful Cozumel sign for a photo opp.
