This is another great wall dive in Cozumel. Ride the current at about 50 ft. Take in the beautiful coral and marine life. Having climbed many of the 14,000 ft mountains in Colorado, a dive along these reef walls has the same euphoric feeling.

Villa Blanca wall is so nice - it's a relaxing drift dive, not too deep, but because it's difficult to dive during the week, it makes for a rather untouched dive site. The slight current makes for better photography situations than some of the other sites. plus, if you're staying in the Hotel Cozumel/barracuda hotel area, your boat ride is... More

Not too deep, an 80 lb air tank easily lasted 60 minutes, could have lasted longer. So much sea life to see.

Advantage to Via Blanca - it's even closer to downtown than Parisio. Disadvantage - it's a far cry from Parisio in terms of the density of marine life. Some dive operators will take you to Via Blanca if they want something convenient for them and they think they might have taken you to Parisio one too many times. However, it's... More
