 Cozumel Island

Mexico, Yucatan

English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): Cozumel (Island of the Swallows) is an island in the Caribbean Sea off the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula, opposite Playa del Carmen. It is one of the eight municipalities of the state of Quintana Roo. Cozumel is a popular tourist destination renowned for its scuba diving. The main town on the island is San Miguel de Cozumel.

In 1959, Jacques Cousteau discovered the extent and beauty of Palancar, the coral reefs at the south of Cozumel and publicized it as one of the best places to go scuba diving in the world.

Scuba diving is still Cozumel's primary draw, mainly due to the healthy coral reef marine communities. These coral reefs are protected from the open ocean by the island's natural geography. In 1996, the government of Mexico also established the Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park, forbidding anyone from touching or removing any marine life within the park boundaries.

Cozumel (l’ile des Hirondelles) est une ile de la mer des Caraïbes de la côte est du Mexique, sur la péninsule du Yucatan, situé en face de la ville de Playa del Carmen. C’est l’une des huit municipalités de l’état du Quintana Roo. Cozumel est une destination touristique, renommée pour ses sites de plongée. La principales ville de l’ile est San Miguel de Cozumel.

En 1959, Jacques Couteau a découvert la beauté du site Palancar, l’un des récifs situé au sud de l’ile, et l’a désigné comme l’un des plus beaux site de plongée au monde.

La plongée reste l’une des activités de base pour l’ile, si l’on considère la vitalité de la vie aquatique. Les récifs de coraux sont protégés de l’océan par l’ile, ce qui assure leur pérennité. En 1996, le gouvernement Mexicain, a créé le parc marin «Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park» interdisant de toucher ou de prélever tout objet de vie marine des limites du parc.

- Almost all of the diving here is done through chartered boats from companies on Cozumel island. There are many good companies around. I used Deep Blue. I would recommend finding small, fast boat types of operations.

There are so many wonderful reefs along the southwestern side of Cozumel. I just returned from a weeklong trip there, and I saw everything from sea turtles to sting rays, nurse sharks and black tip reef sharks, and octopi and crabs on a night dive. It was fantastic! The drift diving is such a relaxing and carefree way to dive.
