Comments Dive with Martin was fantastic. Pablo was the dive master for our boat, 6 to 8 divers. Went to Punta Sur arrived before any other boats, left Hotel Cozumel (Brisas, Costa Club whatever)at 7:50 at Punta Sur by 8:30. Kept a loose group, no begineers, we were probaly the least experienced with almost 100 dives. Good fast boats, prompt for pick up in the morning. Because of small groups and getting to dive sites first we saw many nurse sharks, eagle rays, turtles, sting rays, large grouper and very large parrot fish. We have been to Cozumel 3 other times, Dive with Martin is the best dive operator we have used there. We don't intend to try any one else if DWM performs the same way next trip.
Now the bad part of the trip, Hotel Cozumel. The service was good, staff generally freindly. Ocezan view room was comfortable and clean with pleanty of places to hang wet dive gear. We opted for the all inclusive package. Breakfast was o.k. lunch was o.k., dinner was o.k. Average at best. After talking to other divers it seamed there was a lot of sick people (presumabably from the food). Ate out the last two days. This was second time at the Hotel,
