Exploring Cozumel’s Coral Reefs

Located off the coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Cozumel island is home to a world-famous coral reef system. The reef near Punta Sur Ecological Park is best for experienced divers and is famous for its underwater cavern system. Paradise Reef and Palancar Reef are ideal spots for novice divers and snorkelers due to their shallow depth; both offer a chance to glimpse sea turtles, colorful fish, towering coral spires, and gently waving sea fans.
