Comments Cozumel is great when you figure it out. You can get a great hotel
(Casa Mexicana)-hard bed, clean, cold, internet connection within
each room, happy staff, free buffet meal in morning, in town with
no road noise and great water pressure.
I dive with Dive Cozumel-the boat -Yellowrose--48 foot fast boat
that hold 30 divers, but usually the groups are under 6. No dive
restrictions as long as you have the proper cc's . The dive master
is "worldclass"-he is certified to take you down to 300 ft+ if
you are qualified. The equipment is modern,clean and "new"- The
boat is clean, has a head, very roomy and fast. I am a normoxic
trimix certified diver via "Dive Cozumel" and we dive regularly to
200 ft on mixed gases. Roli Fontaine is the owner of the operation.
his website 011-52-987-872-4567--tell
him Bill told you to call. This operation keeps me coming back-Of
my 180 dives 1/2 have been with this operation and has turned me into
a "real" diver!
