Whether you’re a diver or non-diver, Cozumel is a great place for those looking for fun, sun and relaxation. Palancar Reef, the second largest in the world and a national park, was hailed by the French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau as one of the world’s best diving sites.

Need a little nightlife to break up the diving? No shortage here! Enjoy one of the many local cafes or one of the lively discos. Do keep in mind that the evenings start early, places are packed by 8pm and clear out around midnight, so you can get up early for another great day of diving.
