I was planning a vacation in one of these places with my husband, and he would like to go scuba diving (I don’t have the license). Anyway, I was wondering if Cozumel is much better than Playa del Carmen for that purpose.
Thank you!

Cozumel is actually only 12 miles off the coast from Playa Del Carmen so the boats basically go to the same dive areas. Cozumel is very quiet and low key while there is a little bit more action at Playa Del Carmen. It’s really whichever you prefer.
