Cedral is a decent dive by Cozumel standards. The wall is sloping and there tends to be more current. Coral formation resemble more of a patch reef system then the pillar corals you see at Palancar, Santa Rosa and other sites a little further south.

One is never disappointed with this site. There are many critters that make this reef their home. There is a chance to see virtually everything here if one's eyes are open.

Didn’t appear to be as much sea life as some of the other dive sites, but we did see a sea horse and a sea turtle, neither which we saw on other dives ...so that makes up for it.
