This has to be one of the best parts of Mexico! I will definitely be coming back here again. The water was very clear and you can see the starfish and stingrays. This really felt like paradise and its very family friendly from kids to...More
I've never seen so many starfish before. Although I expected there to be more, but it was incredible. The water was calm and we even got to see some other types of fish including some sting ray. It's not overly crowded of tourists (we did...More

Even though we have swam in places like this that are just loaded with starfish, it was part of a snorkeling tour we took that day and...who doesn't ever want to see more starfish right? They were just everywhere you look.
It's somewhat of an...More
We ended our snorkeling tour at El Cielo first with a snorkel where we saw all the starfish, a stingray, and sand dollars. Then we parked at the sandbar where the kids could play in the crystal clear either and soft white sand! Fish and...More
This location is so relaxing and the waters are super clear. The depths go from thigh high to neck high. Sting rays sometimes swim through there but they don't bother people. I highly recommend getting a snorkel tour that wraps up at the Cielo. It's...More
This place is Caribbean dream location, it’s hard to believe that all those shades of blue exist in one spot!
It’s name “ el Cielo” is easy the understand “Heaven”, but actually it’s the “Sky” because of the thousands of sea stars what life here.
We went on a tour that stopped at a couple of places for snorkeling and El Cielo was one of them. I had heard about it from a friend already and we were so glad we went. The water is a beautiful blue and so...More

The names are for beaches and the reef is in front of the beach. The three most popular reefs are Cielo, Palancar, and Columbia, there is a beach named the same way & that beach is in front of the reef, though it may not be easy to swim to the reef from the beach!
You can take a boat trip from the ferry port for this, but it is a long boat ride. Our guide took us by car (with a cruise ship, you'd use a taxi, it's probably a 10 minute ride) to this stretch of beach in Cozumel which is lined with 'beach clubs' where you have bathrooms, restaurant/bar, nice beach with chairs, and boat trips out to the reef. We went to Palancar Beach Club and it was very nice, the Palancar Reef is in front and we took a snorkel tour with them to El Cielo and Columbia. Palancar was in front of the beach here, but we didn't swim out to it and I couldn't tell you how easy that is to do as we didn't even think about it?! But the snorkeling is definitely worth the trip!!!
