This was our 4th trip to Cozumel so this time we picked our own dive
operator Dive Paradise, after reviewing comments on undercurrent, and it
was the best decision we made. We dove in the small fast boats and we were
back between 11:30am to 12:30pm everyday so we had the afternoon to go to
the beaches.  When all the divers were on the boat the divemaster asked
where we wanted to go and dive and it was the decision of the divers.  All
the tanks had minimum of 3,000 psi.  With dive Paradise we meet some Great
people whom I know we will continue to keep in touch with.  As a dive
operator I have to give Dive Paradise a 10, all of their divemasters and
captians were very professional and helpful.  My wife and I can say nothing
negative about Dive Paradise and we would highly recomend them.  

Fiesta Americana was a very nice place to stay, we do not do the all
inclusive so we have no comment on the food.  We like to rent a car and
drive to the beaches and go to the resturants that are off the beaten path.
 The room we had I believe was just remodeled and it was very clean and the
bed was comfortable.  I only wish they offered a breakfast only package.  

Great trip, Great diving and new friends can't ask for much more.
