Cozumel Snorkeling

Cozumel

Known the world over for its crystal-clear waters and coral reef, Cozumel boasts a plethora of water sports, including snorkeling, kayaking, surfing, deep-sea fishing, and diving, in a pristine setting. Our readers flock to this tropical locale to feel the wind in their faces and taste the salt of the ocean.

Reader krishelle said, "The color of the water in Cozumel is phenomenal! Snorkeling there is a must. And try the fabulous shrimp tacos from the street vendors. They are worth the risk."

Reader browningwd said, "Cozumel. It is only a little ways across from Cancun, but it is as different as night and day. You can mingle with the native people there and celebrate in the town square every Sunday night. There is also very good diving here. Real laid back. [You] can venture into town for a night of lively activities. Ocean is so beautiful and calm here, [with] no seaweed like in Cancun and very little commercialization. Very calm and relaxing. We have been to Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, but Cozumel is the best!!!!!!"
