Cozumel, Beautiful clear water
Gin clear water lets us easily see out anchor and chain 15' underwater on a white sand bottom. Underwater visability is 100'-200' and with over 200 species of fish there is plenty to see.
We spent 3 days in Cozumel. Even though the water was some of the best we have ever seen and snorkeling daily can be had right from the boat, it wasn't a very comfortable place for us to stay for very long. There was no real dingy landing so you had to either beach it (the waves for cooperating) or tie up to some dock and hope you don't get in trouble or get run over by a ferry boat. In addition there was no protected anchorage, it's just an open roadsted, so we had a few sleepless nights.
