Discover heaven on earth
You don’t have to wait for eternity to discover heaven. You can reach The Sky while you’re still on earth. Welcome to Cozumel Island.
This beautiful beach is located 800 meters off the Cozumel’s coast. It receives its name due to the hundreds of starfish that live in shallow waters. To get there is necessary to hop on a ferry; you can take these from Chankanaad, Muelle de la Laguna de Colombia (Colombia’s Lagoon Pier) or Palancar beach. If you are an adventurer, some of the local boaters will offer you transportation service as well as snorkel equipment for a modest price.
This marine paradise is inhabited by echinoderms, colorful fish, stingrays and sea turtles. Birds who love to fly in this area enrich the ecosystem.
It is very important to mention that if you are planning to visit this friendly-nature site, please do it so with respect. Starfish breathe through their skin capturing water’s oxygen, therefore, taking them out of the water is dangerous. Littering is unacceptable and campfires are prohibited at all times.
Don’t forget to bring the camera with you, as there will be mesmerizing sceneries you don’t want to miss. ¡You can take incredible underwater pictures!
