Cozumel

Thanks to the island's outstanding scuba diving and snorkeling options, Cozumel tourism sector remains a major employer and the main source of income for this Caribbean getaway.
Step out of the city life by going to Palancar Reef and San Francisco Reef. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Playa El Cielo and Paseo El Cedral Reef. There's much more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Miguel Church (Iglesia de San Miguel), have some family-friendly fun at Clear Lounge Cozumel, and explore the gorgeous colors at El Paso del Cedral Reef.
