Its great that the government decided to make this marine park or wildlife sanctuary off the coast of Cozumel. It stretches from the downtown area of San Miguel all the way south to Punta Sur(southern most tip of the island). Before leaving for vacation I did some research and it was quite impressive. This marine park has over 100 different types of coral and over 250+ types of animal species. We were excited to visit and explore, we were not disappointed.

If you are on the island you have to snorkel or better yet dive the reef. With visibility near 100ft, the sea creatures that you will see and coral you will explore is endless.

There is a $2 per day marine park fee.

The Marine Park in Cozumel features many of the best dive sites in the world, and in Cozumel the scuba diving is all about the drift.... Whether you want to dive walls, swim throughs, coral mazes or spectacular sand dunes, there's something for everyone here.

Currents can range from leisurely to absolutely ripping, so it's important to dive with an experienced local operator who knows the best sites for the daily conditions. Most dive operators feature small, fast boats to get you to the sites quickly. Underwater photographers return to Cozumel time and time again, for so many reasons.

You cannot drink the water in Cozumel, but most hotels and dive operators offer bottled water. There are numerous great places to eat, and the locals are friendly. Hotel rates have gone up over the years, like most everywhere, but you can still find good values if you book in advance and travel in off season or shoulder season.

Bottom line: You won't be disappointed by visiting/diving the Cozumel Marine Park.

We paid a fee for each day we dived in the park. On one dive I saw the marine patrol out and about. No gloves or knives are permitted. You are not to touch or removed vet anything from the park. The lobsters look like they are daring you to take them. I've never seen such big lobsters in my 20 years of caribbean divin.

The Cozumel Marine Park includes almost all of the dive sites in Cozumel. If you are diving, you need to have a bracelet that the dive operator should provide. The cost used to be 20 pesos per day or about $2 US (when the peso was about 12 to the $). The dive operators have always charged $2 US. Since the number of divers is down a lot, they increased it to 90 pesos. At the current exchange rate it about $4.50 US and the dive operators are charging $5 per day.
The other thing to know is the Marine Park is closing dive sites on a rotating basis to allow them to recover from overuse. This is a good thing. But having been diving in Cozumel for over 30 years, w have seen the marine life diminish. It may be because of the lionfish or it may be from illegal fishing or heavy fishing just outside of the marine park boundary. The coral seems to be very healthy

Awesome they've designated so much of this area as a marine preserve. Great diving, especially towards the south side of the island. This is a marine reserve, so really should plan to see the best parts of it UNDERWATER!

this is a really great area of Cozumel and the wildlife is excellent because they do not allow anyone to take wildlife from these protected waters

We like to stay at the Iberostar and the reef is only a few 100 yards (meters) off the beach. There are dozens of dive sites with unique names like Palancar, Columbia, Deliaha and Francesa.

Divers love this park. I've dove it over a dozen times and even though I've not seen it all, I can say it is an excellent reef system to experience.

Some southern parts were closed for 3 months and recently reopened Dec 15th, 2019. It was part of the conservation efforts.

A beautiful park that is preserved in its natural setting. The beaches are clean with aqua blue waters with sandy and rock formations landscapes.
