Fabulous Photos Friday under the Caribbean Sea!
My last visit to Cozumel was wonderful. I spent it with friends, did yoga, and went diving and snorkeling A LOT.
Enjoy looking at the fabulous creatures and scenery you can see under the waves in the beautiful Mexican Caribbean!
Looking up from below is a beautiful sight.

Looks like the surface of the moon, doesn’t it?
Here is some scale: the pinnacles and mountains of coral on Palancar Reef are fantastic, just unreal in their beauty and size!

Have a great weekend!
