The best way to explore Cozumel is on the back of a scooter. We rented one for the day for $25, hopped on and took off. There is one main road around that goes around the island so it's basically impossible to get lost. Our first stop was at Playa Palancar. This beach was picture perfect and had a funky little beach bar and restaurant. Keep an eye out for the baby raccoons running around. After a quick swim in the ocean we took off again and headed to the Eastern side of the island where there are less people and more seculuded beached.
The best little mojito bar in the world
The glory of having your own moped is the ability to stop anywhere you would like. As we were cruising along the coast a small tiny shack with the word "Mojitos" on it caught our eye. We flipped a quick U-turn and arrived at one of the coolest little bars we've ever been to.
We are still dreaming about the mojito we had at this little bar. It was made with tons of fresh mint and grinded into a paste with a pestle and mortar.
Unlike your usual mojito where you muddle mint then have leaves floating around inside your drink, this mojito was super smooth and a bright green color.
Once you get your mojito go relax in one of the many hammocks on the beach behind the bar.
Next we heading along down the coast and stopped at Coconuts for lunch. This lively restaurant and bar is right on the cliffs.
After a full day exploring the island we headed back on the ferry to Playa Del Carmen. Cozumel was a fun day trip and there was no better way to see it than on the back of a moped.
