Occidental Cozumel All Inclusive Dive Packages

The lush tropical gardens of Occidental Cozumel is just part of the allure. Probably the main focus of this family-friendly property is the incredible beachfront. This is truly what you dream about when you are researching your perfect Caribbean resort. Soft white sands, clear blue  waters gently coming ashore. That is the Occidental Cozumel. Combine that with colonial-style architecture that really adds some charm to the property, and you have the makings for a great dive vacation. Plus of course, we can pick you up right at their pier making it simple for you!

A popular feature for the Occidental Cozumel is its close proximity to the Palancar Reef system. For anyone divers that get seasick easy,  the only closer resort location would be the Iberostar Resort. An additional consideration is often the expansive offerings for dining and entertainment. An incredible seven (7) restaurants are located on the property, which accompanies three (3) pools (one is a children-only pool). Naturally the oceanfront pool is the most popular, particularly at sunset.

Family Fun at Occidental Cozumel

There is plenty for you to do when you are into scuba diving with us. Your afternoon can be filled with ocean kayaking or windsurfing and sailing. Two tennis courts are on property plus a fully equipped gym. While the snorkeling is not the best (part of the trade off for that incredible beach), the Occidental Cozumel does run a full program of water sports in the pool including volleyball and water polo.
