Fourth trip to SCC. Rooms are perfect for divers. Very firm mattresses,
efficient but loud AC units, no TV, bar fridge - basically perfect for
diving. Location is fantastic. 10 minutes to town and 5 mins walk to two
great supermarkets. Shore diving in front of the resort is fun and great
for impromptu dives.

We had 8 to 13 divers on o ...

For the cost, the ease of a good diving experience, the reliability of the
service people and the same staff for many years...Why not keep coming? It
is a good value. I first went there with International Diving Adventures
with Hank Ketels of Foothill College (California) in 1978 I think. Been
back many times and had my daughter and wife certified there.It is
especially nice as all the food has been great. Most good dive spots have
an empty bar because everyone is getting early sleeping for the morning
diving!

If you started coming in 1978, then you're pretty much slot right into the
demographic I described. LOL. I love the place but it's a ghost town after
dinner. And no I'm not looking for PDC either!

Great commentary. Any other places similar you would recommend in Cozumel?
I am 65 and I also dont want to be stuck with a bunch of old people.  I
like concept of great boat diving from  onsite pier and breakfast and lunch
coordinated with diving and close to town for dinner -- the  alternative
all inclusive resorts are boring.. Is there anything closer to reef?
By Howard Lewis in CA, US at Apr 11, 2016 10:38 EST  
I always stay at Scuba Club. There is another resort, I think it is San
Francisco, which is down near the reefs on the south side which is
"supposed  to be good". I do not know. Now, if you want Belize---
Look at Hurrican or Itza, both on Long Caye, 50 miles offshore and close to
great diving.
