ShoreTrips says...

When asked, we always say that the thing to do on Cozumel is explore under the water! This island is known for its reefs and marine life.

Begin your day with an exhilarating boat trip through the sparkling blue waters of the Caribbean to the second-largest coral reef system in the world --the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System. Your experienced guide will choose not one, but two terrific snorkel stops, brimming with undersea life.

These protected areas designated as the National Marine Park are home to an exotic array of fish and marine life, including starfish. You will be outfitted with great snorkel gear and if you are new to this sport, accept some instruction before getting into the water. The clear blue sea has been the highlight of many folks coming to see exactly what lives under the water's surface. You will have a guided snorkel tour with a certified guide who will help you identify much of what you see.

From here head over to the location of the best full-service beach and water park on the island. Everything you need will be at your fingertips, whether you want to continue in the water or become a landlubber.

A full buffet lunch, water park activities for both young children and adults, pools and sandy beaches, and the 200-foot long Twin Twister Waterslides are all available to you. You will have approximately 90 minutes of fun. In addition to the white sand beach and beautiful Cozumel water, there is a shopping area, swimming pool, hammocks, lounge chairs, volleyball & soccer court, trampoline, ping-pong tables, restrooms & dressing rooms, beach umbrella, kayaks, paddleboats, sailboats, water trampoline, water bicycles, floating mats, and the amazing iceberg water mountain.
