No trip to Cozumel is complete without a boat ride (or two) around the island's magnificently blue waters. Whether you hop on board to scuba dive through some of Cozumel's magnificent reefs or to simply take in the scenery during a sunset sail, most travelers agree that chartering a boat is worth the time and money. 

One of top traveler-approved tour operators is ScubaTony Cozumel, which specializes in taking small groups on scuba diving trips in the reefs around Cozumel. These start at $90 per person for a four-to five-hour round-trip boat trip. The fee includes fresh fruit and drinks, along with marine park taxes and fees. Rental gear costs extra. Recent visitors described their experiences with ScubaTony with words like "perfect," "flawless" and "sublime." 

Chili Charters is another popular tour operator that offers scuba diving, snorkeling, and sunset boat trips. Snorkeling tours start at around $52 for a three-hour trip. The fee includes all of the equipment as well as some refreshments, including water and sodas. Chili Charters' Scuba diving trips start at $90 per person. Recent travelers felt like they were in good hands with Chili Charters, saying that not only was the staff highly organized but they also knew the reefs backward and forward. Other highly ranked scuba companies include Cozumel H20 (especially for first-timers), Blue Project and Salty Endeavors.

#2 Faro Celerain Eco Park (Punta Sur Eco Beach Park)

If you're a wildlife lover, a trip to the Faro Celerain Eco Park is a must. Also known as Punta Sur Eco Beach Park, this ecological park sprawls across the southern tip of Cozumel. Its 2,500 acres are home to exotic birds, crocodiles and sea turtles. But don't let the animals distract you from everything else the park has to offer. Take some time to explore the eco park's two lighthouses, one of which hails from the pre-Hispanic era. There's also a museum that details the history of the Maya, as well as pirates and corsairs that once frequented the area. You can also book a catamaran tour of the Colombia lagoon. 

Recent visitors said that the beach park offers a great mix of history and nature situated in a beautiful spot. The white sands and peaceful atmosphere of the beach are just about perfect, according to most visitors.
