Cruises sail to the snorkelling grounds off Cozumel, focusing on the island’s famous coral reefs and underwater canyons. Head out for a day of diving at a choice of 100 world-class dive sites, or time your snorkel for a sunset sail with margaritas and music. Newbies can learn to dive with a discover diving PADI course, and if you don’t want to get your feet wet there are glass-bottom boat cruises and underwater submarine tours.
Cozumel is a birdwatcher’s haven, providing habitats for migrating ducks, flamingos, herons, egrets, ibis, falcons and kestrels. Like us humans, dolphins are drawn to Cozumel’s crystal-clear waters, and a dolphin swim promises a one-on-one interaction with these lovable creatures. Loggerhead sea turtles nest along the island’s beaches, and feed on Cozumel’s sea grass meadows. Horseback-riding trips into Cozumel’s rainforest heart reveal the island’s cenotes, picture-perfect bathing pools designed by Mother Nature.
