Comments I have been visiting Cozumel since 1965. This is our 5th return trip with Jeremy and it was our best ever. Jeremy came all the way out to the Iberostar the night we arrived and made sure everyones equipment and rental sizing was correct. Our tank and weight sizes were correct and waiting for us the next morning on the boat, this information came from our previous visit 3 years earlier! The boat crew made us feel like their family members. We were always asked where we wanted to dive, spend our shore intervals and any aspect of our diving. Our dive times were always well over an hour. This was probably our best dive trip to Cozumel in 45 years.

I've only been to Cozumel in the Spring--Scuba Club. Experience has made me worry about cold/rainy weather in December. But it sounds like you had good weather. (Do you really not wear a wetsuit? Yikes!) I'm looking for a new destination for Christmas week and wonder if Cozumel would work?
