Scuba Diving in Cozumel , Mexican Caribbean
Cozumels coral reefs offer diving experiences unparalleled anywhere in Caribbean.
The island of Cozumel features one of the largest coral reef formations in the world, second only to Australias. Walls of coral that drop 3,000 feet to the ocean floor, as well as tunnels, caves and underwater gardens of brilliant corals, are home to tropical fish, and exotic marine plants and mammals. Furthermore, the water is clear enough that, on a good day, visibility can reach 100 feet.
In 1997, to help preserve this underwater environment, Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo proclaimed these reefs the Cozumel Reefs National Park and designated them as protected areas. To satisfy demand for its top market, most hotels in the island have onsite certified diving operators and offer packages that include accommodations, three or more dives (depending on length of the package), equipment and transportation to dive site. Following is a sampling of diving offers in Cozumel for winter 1999-2000, listed by hotel.
