Cozumel is a world-renowned destination for scuba diving. The island’s clear waters and abundant marine life make it a perfect place to learn to dive or to explore the underwater world. If you’re planning a scuba diving trip to Cozumel, here are 10 tips to help you get the most out of your experience.


  1. Choose a reputable dive shop. There are many dive shops on Cozumel, but not all are created equal. Do your research and choose a shop that has a good reputation and that offers a variety of dive courses and excursions.
  2. Get certified. If you’re not already certified to scuba dive, now is the time to do it. There are many different certification agencies, so do some research to find one that is right for you.
  3. Take a dive course. Even if you are certified to dive, it’s always a good idea to take a refresher course before you go diving in Cozumel. This will help you to brush up on your skills and to learn about the unique conditions that you’ll be facing in Cozumel.
  4. Be prepared for the weather. The weather in Cozumel is warm and sunny year-round, but it can get quite windy. Make sure to pack sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses. You should also pack a wet suit or a rash guard, as the water can be quite cool.
  5. Be aware of the marine life. Cozumel is home to a variety of marine life, including sharks, turtles, and rays. Be sure to respect the animals and to stay away from them if they seem agitated.
  6. Be aware of the currents. The currents in Cozumel can be strong, so it’s important to be aware of them before you go diving. If you’re not comfortable diving in strong currents, it’s best to stay in the shallows.
  7. Be a good diver. Always follow the rules of scuba diving and be a good diver. This means being respectful of the environment and of the other divers. It also means being aware of your surroundings and of your own abilities.
