Feast your eyes at El Mirador overlook
At El Mirador overlook, take in the rugged natural splendor of Cozumel‘s east shore. El Mirador overlook is a rocky seascape filled with natural bridges, tide pools, and stone spires on Cozumel’s mountainous eastern shore. This unspoiled, natural location faces the open Caribbean Sea and provides a refreshing break from Cozumel’s more popular areas. The sea has sculpted a granite arch that you may climb to the top of for spectacular views. On the gorgeous east coast route, it’s easy to get there. Don’t forget your camera; El Mirador is a photographer’s dream.
Perfect for bird fans
El Mirador overlook is a fantastic area to see seabirds and other wildlife because of its distant location. Some Cozumel island tours, including private and wheelchair-accessible trips, stop at this wild lookout point, as well as other local sites like tequila distilleries and flea markets. The natural Jacuzzi is another unusual element that most people are unaware of. This feature can be found around 70 yards south of El Mirador. Water bursts up from the bottom of the “Jacuzzi” each time a set of waves comes in.
