Comments We (myself & 17 yr old son) did extensive research, like most divers for a new destination. We kept coming across the name of a DM in Cozumel, who had nothing negative about him online. We had come to find out that he was "The Man" at Aldora, and now opened his own shop with his wife, Michaela. They are incredible!! She is the consumate hostess, he is an incredible DM! They have a new 6-pack that picked us up at the dock, and we were on the dive sites when most people were getting there. The surface interval is a 5 minute boat ride to Playa Palancar, for fish tacos on the beach! The level of diving is int-advanced, he lets most do their own thing, with the option of following him. No whiners or babies should dive with them....a fast 6-pack, rollovers to the site, fast diving. If you wnat your level of diving to get better, dive with them. We had a 3 knot drift dive that was incredible! He made a point of making my son's 50th dive special...and he did....finding a huge green moray sleeping under a rock! Seahorses, octopuses on the night dive, a cool thing he did with his signal mirror and a pike blenney. Just an excellent in my book. The hotel has changed hands a few times, but is within walking distance to the center of town, or a $3 cab ride. The rooms are clean, the AC works, the housekeeping was always done, on time with no surprises. We did not buy a meal package, but upon check-out (5 nights), our bill was only 980 pesos! Thats $98 for all you gringos out there. That was for breakfast buffets for 2, bar & pool bills, and miscellaneous stuff. I would do nothing different, except have the letter to leave the country with my son for the airlines. (email me if you want to know about that) The dive group, sites, weather, hotel were all great. Try to avoid the town when the cruise ships arrive, there were 5 unloading when we there, including a Disney Ship! by the way....I just received a email from them, telling me to pack my 3mm, and come down in January....rays are schooling & mating in the north end of the island!
