We hadn't been to Cozumel since the hurricane a few years ago, and while
the corals were removed in the shallows, the wonderful coral structures
were present in deeper areas.  Fish life was great.  The Dive House
divemasters worked very hard to find small critters and point out larger
fish.  I was very impressed with the marine life in all dives, in the
shallow areas in particular.  We saw several spotted eagle rays, more
splendid toadfish than in all past trips, and nurse sharks, southern
stingrays, turles, and many species of fish.

We have been to Fiesta Americana, Cozumel at least 9 times and this was the
best food experience yet.  Chef Rod, you could not have been more
attentive.  Your attention to detail, the ability to relate to guests and
follow through with all the offerings were amazing.  The food menus worked
well, the presentation was beautiful.  When we asked for a special birthday
cake, it was very tasty and exactly what we were looking for.  We wanted a
cooking lesson, you were both entertaining and informative.  Being some are
vegetarians, you worked hard to find soy products to serve us.  We stayed
for 11 days and enjoyed every one of them.  We could not have asked for a
better way to spend our time and vacation.
