What is your favorite thing about living on Cozumel?

The underwater world around the island is breathtaking; it feels like going to a parallel universe. The reef, marine life, and clear water made me stay.

Our cultural diversity, rich and colorful. Our language full of turns, double sense and endless meaning possibilities. Our practical resourcefulness when in need.
