Useful facts for your holiday to Cozumel

Flight and transfers

Cozumel does have an international airport, but you are more likely to arrive by flying to the Cancun airport and then taking a ferry across to the island.

Visa Requirements

Currently a visa is not required for Irish passport holders but you must obtain a travel card on arrival, which at present time costs less than £20. This should be re-checked on booking for any changes. Passports must be valid for at least the duration of stay and you must have a return or onward ticket. All travellers should check full entry requirements prior to travel.


Spanish is the official language but the majority of the population will be able to speak at least a little English.


To get to the main attractions of the island, you’ll need to drive or be driven. The problem lies in that taxis are very expensive meaning that it’s a much better idea to rent a car.


The Mexican peso is the official currency but US dollars are widely accepted.

Vaccination and Health

Health requirements often change, so check with your GP or specialist travel clinic in advance of your holiday for specific information related to your travel and medical history.

It’s a good idea to drink plenty of water to avoid sunstroke and dehydration. Be aware that most resorts and high-quality restaurants will use a water filtration system to ensure tap water is safe to drink, however, if you find yourself away from your resort you should stick to bottled water to make sure it’s safe. Tap water outside of the resorts is not safe to drink.
