Another great diving trip to Cozumel.  Rented a house for the first time
and it was outstanding.  Casa Marcos is located on Calle 8 Norte and 20th. 
It is 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, full kitchen (with blender) and a pool. 
Great location and great accomadations.  Will rent again instead of a
First time diving with Dive Paradise.  Seems to be a solid operation. 
Boats were ALWAYS on time and the divemaster Eric is one of the best we
have ever had in 11 years of diving in Cozumel.  Our neice was Open Water
certifed on Friday before we left on Sunday.  Eric took this in to account
on the site selections and by the end of the week...we were on Punta Sur!! 
Saftey was never compromised and Eric had great situational awareness at
all times! Only complaint is they need to bring along more water...and
maybe some fruit would be nice during the surface interval.

Diving was great.  Lot and Lots...and lots of turtles.  A couple of Eagle
Rays...even saw one breach during a surface interval.  Nurse sharks and the
usual suspects to include two very friendly sea horses.  Also had a great
night dive with lots of sharps-tail eels, squids and octopus!

Flew American from DFW.  Connections were good.  Be careful on the weight
restrictions for your luggage. American doesn't care that your a diver and
we paid $100 for an "over-weight" bag on the return trip.  Same
bag on the way down was no extra??

Cozumel is still a fantastic dive location!!
