Q: CAN I FIND GOOD SNORKELING FROM THE SHORE IN COZUMEL?
There is good snorkeling on the beach at Dzul-Ha
, Sunset Beach
, and the Fiesta Americana, as well as at the Coral Princess hotels. This is where many of the tours, like the ATVs or Dune Buggies, will take you snorkeling if you choose these excursions instead of a snorkeling tour. However, you'll mostly be snorkeling along rocky shores, not coral reefs. The beautiful coral reefs that Cozumel is famous for can only be reached by boat, so you'll need to take a tour to experience the very best Cozumel has to offer.
