Diving

Less than five minutes away from the famous "Paraiso" reef.

Cozumel is home to some of the best diving in the Caribbean. World renowned dive sites like Paradise Reef and Palancar  Reef will quench your thirst for thrilling and beautiful dives. Cozumel is famous for its often exhilarating drift diving and stunning visibility. Water temperatures are always warm and sea life abundant. From rays and turtles to barracuda, seahorses, garden eels, nurse sharks and more, Cozumel's diving is sure to amaze.

"I'm often asked what my favorite dive destination is and Cozumel it always at the top of my list. The water is beautiful, the drift diving is just fun, and the variety of sea life is amazing. I keep coming back and am never disappointed at the variety of dive sites and the amazing visibility."

–Chad Anderson, DFL Alum
