Diving in Cozumel

Just a short ferry ride from Playa del Carmen lies Cozumel, know as the “Island of the Swallows.” This small but lively island has become a popular scuba diving destination. Cozumel has everything you could need for a great dive holiday – sunny skies and white sandy beaches, warm water with great visibility, amazing coral formations, and lots and lots of marine life.

 

Most dive sites are within the Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park, which protects much of the second largest barrier reef system in the world, the Meso-American reef system. This marine park is home to some 65 species of corals and more than 500 fish species live in the park, including the endangered splendid toadfish.  Divers often see loggerhead, hawksbill and green turtles.
