Experience the magic of Colombia and Palancar reef ecosystems, then stop at El Cielo, a sandbar where starfish are the stars of the show. Drinks and ceviche are available during your unforgettable sailing and snorkeling excursion.


Set out to Colombia and Palancar reefs
Start out your snorkel adventure in the morning with a boat pick-up at one of seven Cozumel resorts’ piers. Meet your PADI certified guides who’ll be on hand as you board a boat, which will take you to experience all the wonder of the Caribbean Sea in Cozumel. During your sail, enjoy provided snacks, fruits, fish ceviche and soft drinks.
Your boat will take you to two ecosystems in the Cozumel Reef National Park. Jump right into the clear water and explore Colombia and Palancar, two of the most iconic reefs in Cozumel. Swim with a myriad of impressive marine life, and use your snorkel to see coral formations 20 to 30 feet below you!

Enjoy a heavenly experience at El Cielo
Your third snorkeling stop is El Cielo, a sand bar whose clear, shallow waters make it an ideal snorkeling spot for kids and adults alike. Spanish for ‘Heaven,’ El Cielo is a divine place where starfish live, adding a special touch to your swimming expedition. After your heavenly dip, get back on your boat and knock back a couple cold beers, just what the adults need to complete this refreshing journey.
When you’re done with your three-reef snorkel adventure, your boat will take you back to the marina, where transportation will be on standby to return you to your resort.
