Cozumel

Drift Diving Adventure

 

Where we are diving

Dive into the magic of Isla Cozumel. This jewel of a tropical island rests in the shimmering turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Just east of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico, the lush jungle life fills the island’s interior while sugary beaches, sunshine, and gently swaying palm trees line the coast. It’s paradise!

Cozumel is an easy trip from the United States and offers some of the best diving in the world. One of the many reasons Cozumel is a bucket list location for divers is the incredible drift diving. Drift diving is fun, and it adds to the magic of Cozumel. Let the current gently carry you through a world filled with colorful coral and vibrant fish. No plans, no map. Relax and ride the current, taking in the beauty and majesty of the reef and all its vibrant inhabitants.

As the second-largest barrier reef in the world, the Mesoamerican reef offers a massive variety of coral that creates a maze of swim-throughs and walls. Not only is Cozumel known for its beautiful reef, but it also has an abundance of marine life. Get your camera ready for white Marlin, splendid toadfish, gray angelfish, and porkfish. They are just a few of the 500 species of fish in Cozumel. Other creatures include moray eels, nurse sharks, and hawksbill turtles.

Join Nolan & Devin in Cozumel at Dressel Divers for a great dive getaway – friendly locals, good food, lively nightspots, warm water, great visibility and white sandy beaches.

Divers choose to travel with Diventures because we make everything easy for you while creating the adventure and experience of a lifetime!

Electricity – There are no adapters required. If you’re visiting from the States, you won’t need to worry about an adapter for your cell phone or computer. Cozumel operates on a 110 V.  

Bug Spray – Please be sure to bring it with you! Mosquitos are mostly active in the early morning hours and around sundown. 

Water – Although the water that comes out of the faucet on Cozumel is in fact potable, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should drink it. While it’s okay to bathe in, we suggest you use bottled water for absolutely anything else. 

Credit Cards – You are able to use your credit cards in most stores and restaurants.  Just remember that the charge will be made in pesos and your bank will charge you in dollars.  

Money – 1 Mexican Peso equals 0.0549 USD. So, 20 Mexican pesos is about 1 USD.
