About Cozumel’s natural beauty, reefs, great scuba diving, Archeology, the Yucatan peninsula, Mayan and Mexican Culture and History.
Cozumel, Caribbean island in turquoise waters, lies just off the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo about 60 kilometers south of Cancun.
Surrounded by coral reefs, Cozumel is world-famous for its scuba diving and snorkeling.
It has been one of the top tourist destinations in Mexico for nearly half a century.
The island is 48 Kilometers long and 16 Kilometers wide. It is 20 K. from the mainland.
Nearly everybody in Cozumel, lives in the town of San Miguel on the developed western shore looking across the water to Playa del Carmen and the newly-created Mayan Riviera.
Cozumel, has on one side glorious sunsets and on the other, magical sunrises.
Not many know that besides being one of the top destinations for the flora and fauna that lies under the water, it is also a place where you can see some endemic species on earth and over it. Only Cozumel Island can claim exclusive rights to 3 endemic species of birds not found anywhere else in the world, and herpetologists have also their share in the island.
Limestone is the foundation that gives support to each of us, having our fresh water supply underneath in caves called “cenotes”.
