Comments hadn't been to Cozumel in over 15 years and was pleasantly surprised at the health of the reefs and abundance of fish. Had read about Aldora Divers and they were as excellent as advertised. Small groups and varied the sites each day. The dive guides were exceptional, attentive but not overbearing. We will definitely return to Cozumel and without question will dive with Aldora. Saw the usual cast of Caribbean fish including very large angels,groupers, many turtles and a few reef sharks. Seems the fish are used to divers and allow very close contact. The Presidente hotel was upscale as good as any we have stayed at. Definitely 5 star. Food expensive but again excellent. we like to stay with other divers and next time plan an staying at Aldora Villas.
