Setting sail from Cozumel
Cozumel first made its name as an off the beaten track destination for divers, thanks to the crystalline waters and low key beach vibe. These days the cat is very much out of the bag, but get away from the craft shops and jewellery stores of the busy port and you'll find a welcoming island community that is still authentically Mexican.
Mexico: Seybaplaya (Campeche)
The port of Seybaplaya is the jumping off point for Campeche, a charming colonial town reminiscent of Cartagena in Colombia. The historic centre is a photogenic parade of pastel-coloured buildings, cobbled streets and pretty balconies, while further inland lies the impressive Mayan site of Edzná.
The town of Progreso, on the north coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, is the jumping off point for exploring the fascinating Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá, a 100-mile drive inland. The lovely colonial town of Mérida is another option, and is much closer, while Progreso itself has a decent beach.
