Went on 6 dives with Aldora divers. The best dive was Punta Sur. The coral, while in good shape, was not colorful and visibility ranged from poor to very good. There were fish but mainly at more shallow sites. We did see turtles, lobsters, baracuda and other tropical fish. We saw no sharks, one small ray in the distance.

The operation is good and well organized. It would be helpful if Aldora had more charts with fish identification.

During the past several years I have dived in the Pacific, and Cozumel, while providing relatively good diving, is not comparable.
