Must Sees in Cozumel
Cozumel Reefs – offer arguably the best scuba diving and snorkeling on the western hemisphere and are must-sees while on the island.
Arrecife Palancar – is ideal for underwater photography. It lies less then a mile off Cozumel and offers an amazing 230-foot visibility. The deepest area of Arrecife Palancar is 80-feet deep – ideal for deep-diving; but the north end of the reef, 'Palancar Gardens', is home to shallower caverns and vivid sea life. To get to Arrecife Palancar you can sign up for a day cruise or charter a boat.
Cozumel Lighthouses – Ideal views of Cozumel's stunning stretches of beach are yours for the taking from the island's 'faros' or lighthouses - Punta Celarain on the southern tip of the island and Punta Molas to the northeast.
Punta Celarain – on the southernmost tip of Cozumel offers a picture-perfect rendition of the entire island. The historic lighthouse, built in the early 1900's is only accessible by a rugged dirt track that stretches almost 3 miles from the highway, but the view to Punta Celarain is well worth the visit and the pictures you'll take home. Punta Celarain also houses a navigational museum and stretches of isolated beach.
Punta Molas – An equally tough trek is to Punta Molas, a lighthouse in northeast Cozumel. This trip is best tackled on 4-wheeler, but upon your arrival you will be greeted by stunning vistas of golden beaches and by ruins for exploration.
