Nice snorkeling experience

You can get to 3 places by bus, ferry and speedboat: Reef Palancar (would have been unnecessary), Columbia Reef (numerous and different types of fish were attracted by the feeding of our companions), Sandbank El Cielo (there were many starfish nearby) ). It is recommended to take this with a waterproof camera, otherwise the experience will be gone too quickly. If you imagine a huge colorful underwater world, as it sparkles from some brochures, you will not get your money's worth. Otherwise, the excursion was well organized and handled.

Sea is good but tour is bad

I am very dissatisfied. Because I could not skin-dive due to life jacket. I am a skin-diver. I went to skin-dive to Cozumel. BUT, I was ordered to wear a life jacket. There is no worth to go Cozumel if I cannot to skin-dive. I went to some resorts(Tahiti, Maldives, New Caledonia,Palau) , however I was not ordered to wear life jacket. The previous day, I went to Isla Contoy/Isla Mujeres. I was ordered to wear life jacket like Cozumel Perhaps, we must wear life jacket in Mexico sea. Further, I bought a new skin-diving set(fin/boot/mask/snorkel/glove/watch with water depth meter) for skin-diving to skin-dive in Cozumel. I wasted much money. I will never visit to Mexico due to cannot not skin-dive. Cozumel sea is beautiful. However, other sea is beautiful, too. At least, It should be mentioned in information to wear life jacket.
