What are the best Cozumel Shore Snorkeling Locations?

Mexico is known for many cultural wonders, but some may not realize that hidden within are some excellent touring locations that are both luxurious and awe-inspiring. Cozumel is one of those places; an island located off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Channel.

One of the excellent points about Cozumel is the abundance of reefs located in and around its shoreline.
