The beautiful subtropical island of Cozumel, Mexico offers entertainment activities for everyone, including splendid scuba diving and snorkeling adventures, deep-sea fishing and multiple competitive events that attract athletes from all over the world, including dancing, fishing, triathlon and biking competitions.
People travel from far and wide to participate in the plethora of events that take place regularly in Cozumel. One of the most popular activities for tourists is exploring nearby ancient Mayan ruins, which can be done independently or via a guided tour. One of the best ways to see the beautiful island of Cozumel is to rent a bicycle or scooter for traveling around the island and experiencing firsthand the culture, the food and the locals who make the island so special.
Many competitors choose to rent their cycling gear (instead of bringing their own bicycles with), as well as other gear and equipment. Locals offer rentals of a variety of bicycles for daily use or competitive racing, as well as motorized scooters for independent excursions.
