Fishing by the Beach
Cozumel has some of the best bottom fishing in the Caribbean.
The best thing about an excursion in Cozumel is that all the tools are ready for you, alongside a great captain and crew who enjoys what they do. Besides the large fishing vessel that takes you across the golden horizons of Mexico, most tours supply rods, reels, bait and even tackle. You’ll also be able to learn some of the easiest methods for great fishing in the warm waters of the Caribbean, which are likely quite different than what you do at home in the lake or even fly fishing.
These tours are fun for the whole family and just another way to experience the crystal blue waters of Mexico.
Stingray Fun by the Beach
Cozumel is home to lots of fascinating underwater creatures which you can explore through snorkeling, diving, fishing or a trip to the well known String Ray Beach. This exciting marine dweller is really one of the friendliest and most playful underwater creatures. Stingray Beach is designed entirely around providing you a comfortable atmosphere to interact with the southern sting ray. For those who wish to get up close and person, you can wade in to the waters and slowly they’ll begin to swim nearby allowing you to “pet” them and of course feed them! They know you come bearing gifts and that’s part of the allure.
However, there’s no pressure to touch or even wade in the water if you prefer to observe them from a distance, you’ll still get an incredible view and experience to write home about! After feeding the rays, you can go back to working on that tan on the white sand beaches of Cozumel crossing off “ swimming with the stingrays” from your bucket list.
