Mexico is a beautiful place to Scuba Dive, and Cozumel is one of the top scuba diving and snorkeling destinations in the Riviera Maya the Caribbean. It’s unique for its drift diving, marine life, and beautiful dive sites. There are a few in particular, called Palancar Bricks, Palancar Gardens, and Palancar Caves. These sites are all part of Palancar coral reef, and are like swimming through a cathedral. Towers and caves of coral rise over you, and run beneath you.
Cozumel is a special island. During the day the big cruise ships, especially Carnival Cruises, unload thousands of people looking for Cozumel excursions. Most go shopping, but the smart few find a local dive shop and get on a boat. If you travel all this way and don’t see underwater, you’re missing the biggest draw to the island.
I ended up doing a lot of dives here over the past couple years. When editing this video, it was hard for me to cut it into a few minutes for youtube. I settled on just cutting together the dive of Palancar Gardens. That’s the dive site if you’re curious!
