Comments ALDORA DIVERS WAS THE BEST I HAVE DIVED WITH IN MY LIMITED EXPEIRIENCE. DIVEMASTERS VOLLRATH AND MATEO WERE GREAT, THEY KEPT AN EYE ON YOU WITHOUT SMOTHERING. 120 CU FOOT TANKS GAVE OVER AN HOUR ON EVERY DIVE. DID MARACABO DEEP TWICE, PUNTA SUR, PUNTA FRANCESA,PALANCAR CAVES,EL CEDRAL, TORMENTOS AND THE WRECK( C-53). I SAW NUMEROUS TURTLES, SHARKS, EELS, SPLENDED TOADFISH( SIX ON ONE DIVE). WHAT I DIDN'T SEE THE DIVEMASTERS POINTED OUT. I WILL DEFINATLY USE ALDORA ON MY NEXT TRIP TO COZUMEL.

THE CORAL PRINCESS WAS BEAUTIFUL. THE OCEANVIEW WAS SPECTACULAR FROM OUR ROOM AND FROM THE TERRACE. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AT THE TERRACE RESTRAUNT. THE STAFF WAS VERY FREINDLY AND WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO BE HELPFUL. THEY EVEN SURPRISED MY WIFE(AND I) WITH A CAKE ON HER BIRTHDAY. NORTH OF TOWN SO I HAD TO MEET THE DIVE BOAT AT ALDORAS PIER, BUT WORTH IT.

OVERALL A BEAUTIFUL TRIP THAT I HOPE TO REPAET SOON.
