Went diving with Dive Paradise to Paradise Reef. One of the best reefs in Cozumel. Loved the unique variety of fish and coral beds. Just gorgeous!

Did my first night dive at this reef. Really close to the new marina so easy to get there. Lots to see at night time, octopus, crab, lobsters and sea snakes.
