Columbia Reef, Cozumel

#4 of 8 in Nature in Cozumel
Reef · Geologic Formation
Explore the rich marine life of Columbia Reef, a shallow dive spot just off this popular tropical Caribbean island. Less popular than its counterpart, Palancar Reef, the shallows here are a more laid-back and undisturbed place to explore. Snorkelling or scuba diving along the interesting coral formations, you can spot barracuda, grunts, snappers, sea turtles, and sometimes even octopuses. The diving spot is suitable for children and beginners, as it has gentle currents. Put Columbia Reef at the forefront of your travel plans using our Cozumel trip itinerary planning app.
