Mexico Things to Do: 627 reviews and 826 photos


If you are a certified diver, you absolutely have to make plans to dive in Cozumel. The diving there is world class! I personally took a wall dive at Palancar reef which was absolutely amazing ? it was an intermediate dive, though, so if you?re still working on your buoyancy, be careful! Chankanaab Gardens is a protected underwater garden which had tons of gorgeous sea life and coral. My only concern about Chankanaab is that I remember it being a popular place for dive shops and snorklers, so it might get a little crowded and damaged from fins and wandering hands! And for the seriously daring diver, there?s Punta Sur, which is close to 100 feet in depth and almost a vertical descent ? I haven?t tried that one, but next time I go, I will give it a shot.
