Comments Tamarindo Apts are nice, centrally located in town and very affordable. We shared a two bedroom apartment with another couple never felt crowded and full kitchen with a swimming pool.

Christina picked me up every day from Tamarindo and drove me to the boat. Conditions were not great as it was typical spring winds, but we always found some good diving sites. Didn't get a chance to go to Columbia reef, but did a couple dives at Palankar and some new sites I have never been to. Saw a few sharks, eagle rays, lots of turtles big lobsters and interesting fish.

I liked the boat, It was converted from something else but there was lots of room and shade. Also the lunches were great.

Even with all the growth, cruise ships, damaged to area of the reef, Cozumel is still a fun place to dive and the corals seem to be in pristine condition.
