I met a dive buddy in Jamaica by the name of Bob who worked for a dive shop
back home in Cedar Falls called Scuba Too,His dive shop put this package
together at the (was called) Hotel Cozumel.(Congrats on the very
professional dive trip Scuba Too!) The hotel was excellent,, a 4 minute
walk to town, a beautiful pool and beach area and the dive shop right there
on the beach as part of their beach front. A 30 second walk from your room
to the dive boat!. Dive Paradise and their guide Hosai were great,very
helpful and the boat we had called Paradise was large and spacious.The only
shortcoming of the dive shop was they should push and preach more about not
touching the reef,once again there were bottom draggers and the dive
masters should not let them dive unless those kind of divers improve their
skills! The boat ride to the dive sites were 30 -50 minutes,but I'm a boat
person so I did not mind the ride! Some people may prefer to stay at a
hotel way down closer to the dive sites but then its a 20 dollar cab ride
back to town, your choice. The reef was great, drifting was cool, but they
need to do a better job at preserving the reef!
