Scuba Diving In Cozumel (VIDEO)

One of my favorite places to scuba dive is Cozumel, Mexico. Cozumel is the Mexican Caribbean's largest island, just 12 miles off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. With world class reefs, drift diving, marine life and much more, it's regarded as one of the top places to scuba dive in the world. The best part is you can hop over to Play del Carmen where you are only an hour away from the fresh water cenotes and Whale Shark tours.

In the creative video below you can watch us explore Palacar Reef and Cedral Pass. You can really get a sense of how great the drift diving is. It's best to be prepared to be drifting while diving, almost all dive sites have some level of current.
