If you're a diver you need to put Cozumel on your list. The diving is world class, the people are friendly, and it's affordable.

We hit this reef on a very good visibility day. It's a reef that is very enjoyable for an experienced diver while being friendly to newer divers by not requiring frequent depth changes to enjoy it close at hand. Very nice dive spot!

Love this reef for photography, large colorful fish - angels, grunts, filefish, crabs and lobster. You can tell the crab and lobster are not hunted in the park - they are huge!

This site is not too deep and it has lot of marine life and coral. As it's drift diving here,let the current take you and enjoy the reef.

There are several reefs to dive in Cozumel. San Francisco Reef is one of them. It is not a deep dive; but the sea life is abundant and the reef beautiful. If you dive, include Cozumel in your trips.

Diving San Francisco Reef in a current is like sticking your head out the window of a slow moving car, minus the bugs. You are along for the ride with no stopping for pictures. Forget about swimming back to something you just saw. Amazing dive...More

Is this at the San Francisco Beach in Cozumel? A taxi driver there recommended San Francisco Beach to spend a couple of hours while arriving on a cruise ship. tia

This was a boat dive - not sure of the exact location but I wasn't at the beach. Sorry.
