Dive with Martin was fantastic.  Pablo was the dive master for our boat, 6
to 8 divers.  Went to Punta Sur arrived before any other boats, left Hotel
Cozumel (Brisas, Costa Club whatever)at 7:50 at Punta Sur by 8:30.  Kept a
loose group, no begineers, we were probaly the least experienced with
almost 100 dives.  Good fast boats, prompt for pick up in the morning.
Because of small groups and getting to dive sites first we saw many  nurse
sharks, eagle rays, turtles, sting rays, large grouper and very large
parrot fish.  We have been to Cozumel 3 other times, Dive with Martin is
the best dive operator we have used there.  We don't intend to try any one
else if DWM performs the same way next trip.
Now the bad part of the trip, Hotel Cozumel.  The service was good, staff
generally freindly.  Ocezan view room was comfortable and clean with
pleanty of places to hang wet dive gear.  We opted for the all inclusive
package.  Breakfast was o.k. lunch was o.k., dinner was o.k. Average at
best.  After talking to other divers it seamed there was a lot of sick
people (presumabably from the food).  Ate out the last two days.  This was
second time at the Hotel,
