Great place to start or learn to snorkel. Walk down stairs at about 6-8 spots and easily enter the water. Water fairly clear. Good assortment of fish. Not much of a reef to look at compared to other spots I have visited, but good for the family and kids to see the world of fish for the first time.

Diving is one of our loves, me for 30+ years, my new partner for several months. However after diving here he sees why I am a Diveaholic and is well on his way to becoming one as well.

This was our fifth time to the park and we bought friends for their first time. We were impressed by the constant improvements and the sea lion show

Of all the places in Cozumel to dive, I am the least excited by this location. Not that it is bad compared to many other places in the world, it is just not favorite in Cozumel.
