  • Not too deep, so colors still good. Beautiful multicolored reefs, with coral, sponges, gorgonids, etc.  more »
  • This, too, is a good place for beginning divers. There is much to find and a lot of sand. It's fun to careful glide one's hand over the sand and watch for juvenile flounders.  more »
  • Shallower dive site where you expect to see smaller critters, though we still saw eagle rays, large turtles, and sting rays. Excellent specimen of a toad fish made for a great dive!  more »

Where to stay in Cozumel

Most accommodations in Cozumel line the island's western shoreline, offering excellent beach access and the airport. Avenida Rafael E. Melgar provides the widest range of hotels and private rentals, with some of the more spacious and relaxed options sitting around 10 km (6.2 mi) south of the town center. Budget-conscious travelers should look to the main township, where a selection of smaller guesthouses and pensions can be found just a few streets back from the beach.
