Its great that the government decided to make this marine park or wildlife sanctuary off the coast of Cozumel. It stretches from the downtown area of San Miguel all the way south to Punta Sur(southern most tip of the island). Before leaving for vacation I did some research and it was quite impressive. This marine park has over 100 different... More

Currents can range from leisurely to absolutely ripping, so it's important to dive with an... More
