Our Trip Report to Cozumel

We've taken several scuba dive vacations to Mexico. You can read about our trip scuba diving in Cozumel, Mexico in this dive trip report.

It was our first time back since Hurricane Wilma hit so we didn't know what to expect. Not to worry, it still stays on our list of the best place to scuba.

(How would you answer the question "Where is the best place to scuba?" Where can't you wait to get back to? Why don't you share with us so we can live through you? Also read about the best scuba locations as voted by other readers - found after our list at the above link.)

Drift Diving In Cozumel

Scuba diving in Cozumel, Mexico is all about drift diving. If you have never done a drift dive before, I explain what to expect and how a drift dive works.

It may sound intimidating at first, but you'll soon get the hang of it. I also talk about our experiences during one of our Cozumel scuba diving vacations.

So if you are ready for some scuba diving Mexico, you'll be prepared to do some drift diving in Cozumel. Of course, as I talk about in the next page listed, the current in Cozumel was nothing compared to what we experienced while we were diving in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. It was different and unexpected.

Scuba Diving in the Riviera Maya, Mexico:
Riviera Maya Trip Report

Scuba diving Mexico is a blast.

And scuba diving Mexico off the Riviera Maya is a FAST blast.

The currents we experienced here during our last scuba dive vacation in Mexico were much stronger than anything we had experienced while drift diving in Cozumel.

Read all about our last dive trip scuba diving in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. You can also check out our Riviera Maya maps to help you plan your trip.

We hope this information will help you plan your trip if you plan on doing some scuba diving Mexico. We don't think you will regret it.

Books About Mexico

Here are some books you might also want to check out for your trip. One book I highly recommend is The People's Guide to Mexico. It isn't your typical travel guidebook - I had tears running down my face I was laughing so hard in places. Even if you don't travel to Mexico, it's a great armchair read. Let me know if you enjoy it as much as I did.
