Cozumel Snorkeling

In the Caribbean Sea, off the curving arm of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, is the island of Cozumel. It has long been a popular destination for scuba divers, but it is not necessary to be a trained diver to appreciate the beauty and color found underwater in Cozumel. Snorkeling in Cozumel is a delightful experience for visitors of all ages. One truth to underwater exploration is that the brightest colors are always found nearest to the surface where the suns light is brightest. That means that shallow reefs are often the most colorful. There is excellent Cozumel snorkeling right off the coast, especially off of the rugged “iron coasts.” It is possible to rent equipment from hotels, or organize a trip with a charter. An excellent snorkeling spot can be found at Chankanaab that is an eco-park. An admission fee is required, but there is so much to see that you can expect to spend the entire day there. A snorkeling spot that is just off the roadside is called Dzul Ha. Though it isn’t as large, Dzul Ha offers rich marine life and color and is a perfect short afternoon trip.
