Resorts in Cozumel
Cozumel is an island located just off the coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, in the Caribbean Sea. The island, which is lauded as a prime location for scuba diving, is home to several resorts that offer a variety of activities to their guests. Besides diving, common options include golfing, biking, hiking and swimming. Many resorts in Cozumel offer these activities free to their visitors, though some charge a fee for off-property and specialized options.

The 220-room resort has an in-house dive shop that offers lessons and dive certification courses by certified dive instructors.

The resort also offers chartered deep-sea fishing expeditions, flats fishing trips, snorkeling lessons, parasailing and waverunners. All necessary snorkeling and diving equipment can be rented from the dive shop.
