The Island

Cozumel, off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, is Mexico’s largest inhabited island, and it is renowned for its white sandy beaches, coral reefs, colorful fish, and the remarkable clarity of the azure Caribbean Sea.  The climate is subtropical, and the native people are of Mayan descent.  In addition to swimming, sailing, deep-sea and off-shore fishing, Cozumel is one of the world’s most beautiful scuba diving areas.
