The average air temperature is 80 degrees or 27 Celsius, but during the warm summers temperatures go up to 90 degrees or 32 Celsius. During winter expect it to be in the 70’s. That’s why every day in Cozumel is a good day to go to the beach. The temperature of the sea goes from 77 to 80 degrees or 25 to 27 Celsius throughout the year.
One of the best things about this place is the fact that it has America’s largest barrier reef, the Mesoamerican reef – the dream of any diver due to the more than 250 species of tropical fish you can find here, including the queen angelfish and toadfish, which can’t be seen anywhere else in the world. Also, you can get to swim with sea turtles and an endless variety of marine species that put themselves on display to the visitors who prefer snorkeling rather than diving in unexplored depths.
On land, the trees are dotted with wild life and pelicans enjoy a stroll on the boardwalk. In the mating season there are huge amounts of crabs everywhere while iguanas exhibit vivid varieties of colors. If it rains, tortoises take a walk through the jungle and the city enjoying the humidity, and sea turtles bury their eggs on the beaches without acknowledging the curious eyes of onlookers.
