Paraiso Reef is 330-feet offshore from the International Cruise Docks, just south of San Miguel. With a maximum depth of 30-feet, weak current and clear water, it is the preferred spot for dive operators to take beginners. This reef has endured increased diving activity and pier construction. Nonetheless, aquatic life still flourishes. Sea fans, sea cucumbers, moray eels and queen trigger fish frolic about the huge formations of brain and star coral. It's an excellent location for night diving. Those visiting the reef must pay a USD5 fee (cash only) to the Parque Marino de Cozumel.

Location:  Parque Marino de Cozumel, (South of Villa Blanca Wall)
