"All four elements were happening in equal measure - the cuisine, the wine, the service, and the overall ambience. It taught me that dining could happen at a spiritual level." Charlie Trotter
Cozumel Shopping and Dining
San Miguel is a safe, extraordinarily friendly Mayan/Mexican community that has retained its customs and cultural identity despite the increase in tourism. Head downtown and experience the delicious local cuisine and incredible waterfront shopping. Every dining experience is available, from authentic Mexican food to fine dining to pizza. Find the town square (El Zolaco) in the heart of the waterfront district, where no vendors or advertising is allowed, and rest under the shade of a Flamaboyan tree, check out the Museum (El Museo) and learn about Cozumel’s rich history, or experience a slice of authentic island living at the traditional market (El Mercado) and bargain with the locals.
