$21 usd/pn and the main attraction is the beach. The snorkeling was fine, nothing out of the ordinary for Cozumel. There are walking trails and dolphin encounters (addt'l fee). I don't anticipate coming back.

Our dive was amazing, we started at C-53 than swam over to the reef, we have seen huge lobsters and a green moray eel. Check it out!
