Sunset on the Malecon: The Independent Traveler’s Guide to Staying in El Centro
Veteran travelers to Cozumel already know this secret. Downtown San Miguel’s El Centro Neighborhood is a really fun place to hang out. It’s remarkably safe, notably friendly and invariably entertaining. This article will help you determine if staying in El Centro is for you or not.
Great restaurants abound in El Centro. From 5 star dining to inexpensive little loncherias where the tortillas are fresh, hot and cooked while you wait and arrachera strip steaks sizzle on the grill.
Although Cozumel is nothing like Party-Hard Cancun, dance clubs like Viva Mexico rock until the wee hours of the morning. Some even offer free salsa lessons with Cuban dance instructors! Bars stay open late too.
And if you like to Shop, you can spend days prowling the back streets of town getting the best prices on everything from silver jewelry to leather goods to beaded purses and carved and painted wood.
All these reasons and more make the downtown El Centro Area a super place to visit.
But what many people don’t realize is that it can also be a great place to stay–provided you pick your location carefully.
We think staying in or near the El Centro district offers the best of all worlds.
You’ll get a lot more bounce to your vacation dollar on accommodations. And with the money you save you’ll have extra for restaurants and taxis or rental cars to take you to a different beach club or park every day of your trip.
But, in the late afternoon and evening, when you’ve had enough Fun in the Sun for the day, this very safe, very friendly little city on the waterfront waits to embrace you with open arms.
