“It's all about the drift in Cozumel”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

The Marine Park in Cozumel features many of the best dive sites in the world, and in Cozumel the scuba diving is all about the drift.... Whether you want to dive walls, swim throughs, coral mazes or spectacular sand dunes, there's something for everyone here.

Currents can range from leisurely to absolutely ripping, so it's important to dive with an experienced local operator who knows the best sites for the daily conditions. Most dive operators feature small, fast boats to get you to the sites quickly. Underwater photographers return to Cozumel time and time again, for so many reasons.

You cannot drink the water in Cozumel, but most hotels and dive operators offer bottled water. There are numerous great places to eat, and the locals are friendly. Hotel rates have gone up over the years, like most everywhere, but you can still find good values if you book in advance and travel in off season or shoulder season.

Bottom line: You won't be disappointed by visiting/diving the Cozumel Marine Park.

“This is what brings divers to Cozumel”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Nearly all the diving for which Cozumel is famous takes place within its Marine Park. The existence of the park accounts for the preservation of the reefs despite countless divers over many years.
