“Amazing, just as imagined coral reefs should look”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2011

We went out with our resorts Dive Palancar boat. About dozen of snorkelers with a guide in the water. At $29 a head, the best bang for our Cozumel buck. We also stopped at El Cielo for starfish gazing and turtle spotting and of course Palancar. But Columbia was beautiful. Fan, stag horn, and all other kinds of coral, animal life and colors. The viz was great, depth was perfect and the current just takes you. I thought it was stunning to see that reefs still look this good. Even more amazed that I am the first reviewer. One of the best reefs I have seen in my travels.
