Situated in front of Playa del Carmen, Cozumel is a teardrop shaped island boasting beautiful dives on drop-offs and shallow colorful reefs along the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. Called Ah-Cuzamil Peten (land of the swallows) by its earliest inhabitants, Cozumel has been a favorite destination for divers since 1961, when Jacques Yves Cousteau’s documentary broadcast Cozumel’s amazing sea life to the world.
A National Park characterized by a vertical drop off that that boasts large sponges and many different types of coral and crystal clear waters. Keep a keen eye out into the deep blue, to spot large pelagic fish and sometimes sharks patrolling the area.
