My partner and I just came back from our first trip to Cozumel. We flew
Delta from San Francisco to Atlanta (red-eye) and after a 6-hour layover to
Cozumel. Everything was on time and uneventful. This was our first time
flying Delta and thought that it was overall a good experience. 

We took the van from the airport to the hotel but if you want to save a few
bucks, you can catch a cab just outside of the airport.

We stayed and dived with Blue Angel. The hotel was very nice, room was
comfortable and the food was very good. Most of all, the staff was very
friendly and always eager to please.

Cozumel in September was quiet, the weather was OK as it rained at night
most of the time with some short showers during the day.

Jorge was our DM for the whole trip and we thought he was great. We got to
dive our own profile and there were no limits on depth and time. The fills
were always above 3000psi for air but the nitrox fills were sometimes a
just a little short (~2800), but nothing to complain about.

The diving was very good, and we got used to the current rather quickly
(these were our first drift dives). On one dive at Palancar Gardens, the
current was quite strong and now we know what people mean by flying
underwater. The marine life was nice with lots of juveniles. Also saw quite
a few nurse sharks, barracudas, turtles, tarpons, toad fish, fighting
lobsters, and the largest green moray I have ever seen. We did a few night
dives from the Blue Angel resort and these were great: octopuses, lobsters,
squid, eels, rays (not the ones in the pen)...

Photography was quite challenging with the current.

Overall, this was a great first trip to Cozumel. We enjoyed the island very
much, Blue Angel, and the people.

We will be back.
