Recently spent a couple of weeks in the Mexican Yucatan. First week was
spent in Playa del Carmen doing some cenote diving. From there we rode the
water ferry over to Cozumel to get our ocean-diving fix. Decided to try out
an 'all-inclusive' resort for the first time on the island. My buddies
& I have dove Cozumel many times since our first trip in 1991 & up
to now had always stayed at Scuba Club (Galapagos Inn in the old days). Of
course serious divers know that all the best dive sites are on the south
end of the island, so it makes sense for divers to stay closer to the dive
sites, especially when all the amenities are included.

This time we stayed at Wyndham Sabor Resort which is five miles south from
the ferry landing & more importantly, is adults-only. Yes! No screaming
kids peeing in the pool (adults only) or on our water slides ........
complete w/ friendly bartenders at poolside..... Paradise!

Sand Dollar Diving is the on-site operator, but due to major remodeling at
the Wyndham, our Continental Vacations package had us set up w/ Cozumel
Experience, which runs boats out of the main harbor. They picked us up each
morning & dropped us off at the boat's stern where our divemaster,
Salvador Aguilar (excellent English) took over. Salvador & his boat
crew were very helpful & accomodating to the few divers on-board &
to any photographers on the boat.

Cozumel Experience runs three boats, two of which would bring a tear of
nostalgia to the eye of any diver who remembers the old slow boats that
used to take all day from one end to the other. No matter - they're quite
comfortable & the harbor's not that far from the diving. The third boat
is larger & faster, but was not used while we were there due to few

The diving was of course .......... Cozumel ..... can't beat it for the

Continental Vacations had representatives at the hotel & airport
check-in who were very helpful.
