Cozumel is my new fave spot because it has some of the best scuba diving in the world.
It’s also a great place to get scuba certified. I did some of my training there in drift diving, deep diving and peak buoyancy.
The island is teeming with dive operators plus both budget and luxury resorts. I stay at Suites Bahia and dive with Tres Pelicanos.
I’ve made two trips there in recent years and plan to return at least once in 2014.
- Read about some of my Cozumel diving adventures:
Cozumel is pretty relaxed, but the small downtown area gets insanely busy when the cruise ships are in town, which is almost daily during the winter months. One day in December, I counted seven ships docked. That’s tens of thousands of invaders!!
There’s a lot of cool stuff underwater: nurse and black tip sharks, eagle rays, sting rays, turtles, giant groupers and barracudas. Even if you’re just snorkeling there’s plenty to see.
I love Cozumel.
