Cozumel, Mexico

Secrets Aura Cozumel is an "adults only" product in Mexico and specifically on the island of Cozumel where there is nothing else like it on the island. Secrets Aura Cozumel's theme is couples only/adults only.

This in NOT a nudist resort so please don't expect it. Secrets Aura Cozumel is all inclusive in concept for adults couples only so you will want for nothing.

If you're looking for an upscale, refined experience, this is it.

  Travel Alert from U.S. State Department about Mexico The alerts concern primarily the border areas between the U.S. and Mexico. Alerts do not include Cancun, Cozumul, Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, Manzanillo or similar tourism centers. The primary concerns are on the border of Mexico along the state lines of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and southern California. See more from the U.S. State Department concerning Mexico.

This beachfront property opened in 2008 and includes only 96 rooms, all appointed in cool colors and fine amenities. Secrets Aura Cozumel faces due west for spectacular roof top sunsets.

We've been there and found the ambiance intimate although the resort itself feels larger than 96 rooms. Secrets Aura Cozumel is in a resort complex adjacent to other vacation properties owned by the same investors; thus no nudity. A few of the roof top, two bedroom suites have their own plunge pool, so you have everything you need for a private party. The two-bedroom penthouse suites are perfect for two couples who travel well together.

  Fly directly into Cozumel with daily flights from most U.S. cities. Take a taxi or shuttle to the resort about 30 minutes south of the airport.

If you're on the mainland, on the Yucatan or Playa del Carmen, take a water taxi from the main pier at Playa del Carmen across the bay to San Miguel. The trip, depending upon the wind and weather, takes 30-45 minutes and costs less than $20 (price subject to change without notice). A taxi stand is immediately in front of the ferry dock on the main street in San Miguel.

All suites have beautiful views of the beach and sea.

  Adult Couples only…..probably best suited for the South Beach in crowd. From late 20s to 50s.

  AURA is one slick resort for upscale couples who enjoy pampering and personal attention.

The meandering pool that links the separate hotel buildings together is cool. If you're a guest in a Swim Up Suite, you're able to invite your neighbors in for a drink while they float by.

What it's not: AURA is not Hedonism or Desire with an hourly routine day and night although you can participate in all the sports and activities offered. This property carves out a niche all its own since it's more upscale than any of the other adults only resorts.

Cozumel is noted primarily for what goes on below the water's surface and not above it. While Cozumel's only little town, San Miguel, has grown out of its sleepy, colonial britches the past 20 years, your major tourist attractions are across the bay on the mainland of the Yucatan.

Shopping and bar hopping are two favorite past times in San Pedro.
