Si quieres ver tortugas, morenas, langostas, meros y tiburones de arrecife, este es el lugar. Es plano, no hay muchas formaciones y tiene poca corriente. Revisa siempre debajo de los arrecifes, donde veas cuevas, encontraras muchas sorpresas. (If you are looking for turtles, eels, nurse sharks, lobsters and groupers this is the place. It is plane, no spectacular reef formations,... More

We wanted to find turtles and did we ever! 8 hawksbill sea turtles, 2 nurse sharks, large barracuda, large queen angelfish, large rainbow parrot fish... Like an aquarium. A thrilling dive.

You really can't get a bad dive in Cozumel. All the reefs have gorgeous coral and lots of sea life ranging from sharks to sea horses. We even saw some dolphins at surface.

We dove El Paso del Cedral reef yesterday. The weather was perfect, water clear, no waves. We dove with Caribbean diving, Cesar was our divemaster. Today there was some current, not too much. We saw lovely wildlife, brilliant colors. A great dive!

I dove this reef as part of my certification. It was 70 feet with a strong current. I felt like I was flying underwater. I saw a turtle bigger that me just walking along the bottom eating breakfast. Hey are like grazing cows of the sea. The reef was also beautiful and colorful.

Not a deep dive, but so beautiful. We saw so much wildlife, baby nurse shark, a giant manta ray, giant grouper, huge parrot fish, so many corals, baby rays, tiny glass fish, and on and on. Dove with Living Underwater, a great dive company on Cozumel.

Paseo del Cedral is a great site for leisurely drift diving, not too deep at about 50-60 feet. Currents can be moderate-to-strong, but visibility has always been decent for us here, depending on the time of year and conditions. There are several underwater overhangs and amazing swim throughs. Coral is abundant here and marine life is beautiful. This site is... More

This was the second of two dives we did in Cozumel. It's a very leisurely drift dive - 1.5 to 2 knots of current - that sweeps you past small coral heads, broad sandy expanses and allows you to see various fish and marine life, lobsters, crabs etc. with little effort. Recommended as a beginners dive site.

Cozumel has lush reefs and this was another. It was not our favourite - but, like all of Cozumel, the reefs are among the most beuatiful we have seen.
