Best Airbnb in Cozumel: 12 best stays beyond the tourist resorts

Booking an Airbnb at Isla Cozumel is the best choice when visiting this Mexican island. Because besides those cozy places to stay, Cozumel mainly has large-scale hotels and resorts. Or huge cruise ships at the jetty. As we prefer to stay in more small-scale and off-the-tourist-track accommodations, we highly recommend you to stay at an Airbnb as well. We booked an amazing penthouse room with a private bathroom and a shared kitchen and garden with a pool. Our hosts lived in the building as well and gave us many great recommendations for their island. That accommodation doesn’t seem to be available anymore, but we had many more options on our wishlist we love to share with you. These are the 12 amazing Airbnb rentals on Cozumel Island!
