Convenient flight from Houston; Van waiting at airport; check-in at Hotel
Cozumel Resort (formerly known as everything including Las Brisas) quick
and easy; very nice pool; in the water by 4:00 p.m. for weight check and
brief shore dive; DIVE PARADISE was GREAT; nice snacks between dives with
adequate surface intervals; diving was great with an 80' dive to start the
morning followed by a 60' dive; highlights of the trip were a great night
drift dive and penetration of the C53 wreck; pre-dive briefings were very
adequate and DIVE PARADISE showed their concern for everyone's safety.
THE BAD (not so bad!)
Try to talk the hotel into giving you a room facing the pool or on a floor
other than the first.  All we could see out of our room was the road
between the hotel and the beach club. We were worried our gear might get
stolen while it dried on the first floor patio. Look for food elsewhere.
Breakfast was OK, but the rest was not good.

Nice hotel and great dive operator. I recommend them both.
