Cozumel Island is surrounded by clear, warm water and some of the finest reefs, making diving and snorkeling in Cozumel one of the greatest activities in the world. More than that, however, is the terrific sense of community and tradition abound, and an interesting Mayan history awaits to be discovered. But of all the things to do on the island, we’ve highlighted three of the most unique.
1. Scuba dive at night
Although you’ve been scuba diving many times before, at night you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light. The scene changes as day creatures retire and nocturnal organisms emerge. If you’ve wondered what happens underwater after the sun goes down, this is your opportunity. So take a plunge into the waters surrounding Cozumel, with its legendary clarity, and some of the most dazzling displays of soft coral and marine life you’ll ever see. A Cozumel night dive is for certified divers only. And an experienced crew will work with each group to personalize the dive to match your experience and preferences.
2. Explore Cozumel by Jeep
Exploring Cozumel by Jeep is the best way to see all of its main attractions, including the island’s most important lookout points, and its lighthouse. These tours usually offer a variety of additional activities, and a delicious Mexican buffet, making for a perfect day out in the sun.
3. Take a plunge in a submarine
A submarine tour – which descends to 100 feet below sea level, in the protected marine park of Chankanaab, is one the most unique underwater encounters one can have. The area is home to a huge variety of tropical fish and coral, and is known worldwide for its incredible visibility, something that can now be experienced from the family friendly comfort of a submarine!
