The island of Cozumel was the first part of the Yucatán to be “discovered” for modern visitors when, in the 1950s, the famous ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau came here. One of the world’s largest coral reef systems, Cozumel was declared by Cousteau to be one of the finest diving areas in the world. The offshore reef is full of life and a dazzling array of colors. Onshore, Cozumel has an easygoing atmosphere, ideal for families.
