Santa Rosa Wall, Cozumel

4.9
#2 of 18 in Nature in Cozumel
Explore the majestic and abundant marine life at the dramatic drop-off of Santa Rosa Wall. Descend as low as 30 m (100 ft) to observe corals and various creatures, from angel fish to sea turtles, groupers, and the occasional giant green moray eel. Currents can help you cover more ground through the water, which offers good visibility. Venture through strange tunnels formed by the corals, and enjoy the sensation that you're flying over vast underwater mountain ranges as the ocean floor plummets hundreds of meters below you.

Where to stay in Cozumel

Most accommodations in Cozumel line the island's western shoreline, offering excellent beach access and the airport. Avenida Rafael E. Melgar provides the widest range of hotels and private rentals, with some of the more spacious and relaxed options sitting around 10 km (6.2 mi) south of the town center. Budget-conscious travelers should look to the main township, where a selection of smaller guesthouses and pensions can be found just a few streets back from the beach.
