Comments We stayed at Casa Del Mar and used Cozumel marine world, and cannot say enough good things about both. The dive masters were great and very accommodating to everyone's skill level and what they wanted to see. If a diver needed extra help, all the staff were there to take care of them. If you are an experienced diver they let you dive how you wanted, as long as you stayed within reasonable distance to the group. You only had to come to the surface when you were out of air. We saw many sharks (nurse and black tips) as well as sting rays, eagle rays, turtles, a sea horse, reef squid, numerous large groupers, along with many other reef fish. There is also a nice shore dive and night dive spot right at the dive shop. I haven't been diving in Cozumel since 2001 and the diving seems even better than back then.
