Our 3 month adventure in the Riviera Maya was sadly coming to an end. There was no way we could leave without scuba diving in Cozumel, one of the top diving destinations in the world! This being our last week, we kept the best for the last. I know, you’re probably wondering why wait so long to go scuba diving in Cozumel! The answer is simple – with hundreds of activities and daily tours in this part of Mexico, it can be pretty overwhelming. We wanted to pack in as much as we could in these three months – and I assure you we did pack in some great activities! As it turned out, this was the best of them…
After having dived in Cozumel I could absolutely see why this is one of the top diving spots in the world. Beginning with the warm clear water and great visibility, Cozumel diving conditions are ideal if you like to find yourself in the midst of an abundance of exotic marine life, stunning reef walls and coral formations. But hey, let me not get carried away with verbal descriptions, these pictures that Jonah took, capture our dive more eloquently than I ever can.
The Company – Scuba with Alison
I’m extremely picky when it comes to choosing a company to take a tour with. If there’s one thing I learnt in these 21 months of travel, it is to stick with small, private companies for the best experiences. Before I decided to contact Scuba with Alison, I read a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor, and this one just stood out by miles. So I got in touch with Allison, and her response made me feel really comfortable. She really knows how to put you at ease, follows the highest safety standards and gives you the best dive you’ve ever had. Along with Carlos, the boat’s Captain, they are a great team, getting you ready, checking your gear before you jump into the water, and all this with a wonderful sense of humor. It is no wonder that people return year after year to dive with Allison.
Would I recommend diving in Cozumel?
This is a no brainer! I would absolutely recommend diving in Cozumel – novice or advanced divers. If you’ve done your research, you probably are aware that Cozumel has the second largest barrier reef system in the world. We did a 2 tank dive in two different spots, yet we feel it wasn’t nearly enough to see the large variety of marine life. We’ve decided that the next time round we will plan on spending more time in Cozumel!

Disclaimer: We took this dive tour on Allison’s invitation. However, I would like to state that my recommendations come from being a very satisfied diver.
If you’re planning to go scuba diving in Cozumel, you won’t want to miss the Underwater Museum Cancun (MUSA).
