2014 World’s Best Diving & Resorts: Scuba Club Cozumel
Pass through Scuba Club’s arched gateway and you’ve entered a charming Spanish colonial village by the sea. It’s so tranquil and inviting that you might feel you’ve been transported to another time and place. But this is a modern town built with scuba divers in mind. From the drying racks on each terrace to the private pier and custom dive boats, right down to the hammocks under the thatched roof by the water — everything is designed to make life easier for the diver.
Scuba Club Cozumel offers diving packages that make your vacation a breeze. With one phone call you can make room, diving and meal arrangements with one of the best names in Cozumel. Famous for its relaxed atmosphere, great food and excellent dive service, Scuba Club Cozumel runs everything around the dive schedule, so you’ll never have to worry about missing a meal or a dive.
Scuba Cozumel, the resort’s fivestar dive center, has some of the island’s most experienced divemasters and instructors. Its seven custom-made dive boats are exceptionally maintained and laid out for maximum comfort and safety.
