We snorkeled here with and excursion from our hotel. It was one of three places we stopped. There's plenty of things to see. It is beautiful.

Columbia reef has lots of colorful fish. The reef itself has yet to recover from the damage of several large hurricanes but it's still enjoyable--especially for novices.

Everything you always heard about Cozumel reefs is true. Gotta check it out! Starfish, turtles, and thousands of colorful tropical fish.

As is the case with all dive sites in Cozumel, the Columbia reef dive is a great dive. I have never had a bad dive in Cozumel and am nearing 100 logged dives here!

We really enjoyed this reef. Very colorful with an abundance of marine creatures. January isn't the time to go. The weather can be unpredictable.
