One of many awesome sites that Cozumel has to offer to beginners and seasoned divers. I've been coming back to La Isla for diving since 1996.

This reef has great sea life as all the reefs in Cozumel. Every time I have dove this reef I have seen sharks!!! Don't be scared they are only nurse sharks but they are pretty cool and have let me get pretty close to them (2 - 3 feet away). I have also seen turtles there. Has some great swim... More
