Experience amazing water sports and activities on the island of Cozumel (meaning “Land of the Swallow”), named by the Mayans for its many native birds. Cozumel is located in the Mexico Caribbean on the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo.  Only 60 kilometers (36 miles) south of Cancun, it’s easy to reach by ferry from Playa del Carmen’s port or by ship on a Cozumel cruise.  Cozumel is best known for the spectacular fish and marine life of its coral reef, the Palancar Reef, and is recognized as one of the top two travel sites for scuba diving worldwide.  It’s also a great place to snorkel, kayak, and go deep-sea fishing, or swim with the dolphins; take submarine tours, sunset sailing and snorkeling tours, or glass bottom boat rides.  Then relax at Playa Uvas, a beautiful beach inside the Chankanaab National Marine Park, or tour Punta Sur Ecological Park, a protected nature reserve, containing turtle nesting beaches, coral reefs, mangrove forests, salt-water lagoons, Mayan ruins, the Punta Celarain lighthouse, and Colombia Lagoon, a haven for endangered sea turtles.  The natural treasures of Cozumel await you!
