Comments This was our 4th trip to Cozumel so this time we picked our own dive operator Dive Paradise, after reviewing comments on undercurrent, and it was the best decision we made. We dove in the small fast boats and we were back between 11:30am to 12:30pm everyday so we had the afternoon to go to the beaches. When all the divers were on the boat the divemaster asked where we wanted to go and dive and it was the decision of the divers. All the tanks had minimum of 3,000 psi. With dive Paradise we meet some Great people whom I know we will continue to keep in touch with. As a dive operator I have to give Dive Paradise a 10, all of their divemasters and captians were very professional and helpful. My wife and I can say nothing negative about Dive Paradise and we would highly recomend them.

Fiesta Americana was a very nice place to stay, we do not do the all inclusive so we have no comment on the food. We like to rent a car and drive to the beaches and go to the resturants that are off the beaten path. The room we had I believe was just remodeled and it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I only wish they offered a breakfast only package.

Great trip, Great diving and new friends can't ask for much more.
