Snorkeling in Cozumel

Cozumel is a port of call for the Western Itinerary for Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas. When my clients ask me about suggestions for excursions, my first reaction is – snorkeling! Do you know that Cozumel has the second largest reef ecosystem in the world after Great Australian Reef?

Cozumel is part of the Great Maya Barrier Reef, which a system that extends from the Northern Yucatan to Honduras. The island’s 32-km long reef system is located off the island’s southern leeward coast.

This unique experience you just can’t miss! Picture yourself floating at the surface with a myriad of sea life right below you. Angelfish, Parrotfish, Butterfly fish, Tangs, Wrasses, Groupers, and many, many more. Don’t forget about the wide variety of Corals, such as Brain Coral, Star Coral, Sea Whips, Sea Fingers, and Sea Fans. The Soft Corals actually sway with the soft sea motions and add a nice touch to the whole experience. Don’t forget your (waterproof) camera!

I recommend visiting Villa Blanca, Paraiso, and Chankanaab reefs. Each has a wide abundance of soft and hard corals and many beautiful tropical fish that Cozumel is famous for. Trust me, coral gardens make for an exciting first experience. Sounds interesting? Contact Nadia for additional information 772 240-9797 or drop a question by clicking here.
