Scuba trip report: Cozumel March 21-27, 2007

Blue XT Sea Diving/Cozumel Palace HotelTrip Report

We returned home late last night from a fantastic week diving Cozumel. We stayed at the all-inclusive Cozumel Palace Hotel and dove 6 days with Blue XT Sea Diving.

The Cozumel Palace is an excellent place to stay and exceeded our expectations. The rooms are very, very nice and the service of the hotel staff was unbelievable. Waiters/waitresses bringing cold drinks and snacks (bar and otherwise) to people laying at the pool, etc. all day. Flaming dinner drinks at dinner. The enormous staff was unbelievably friendly & accommodating, and never had their hands out for tips.

We previously stayed at the Intercontinental El Presidente on Cozumel and the Palace far exceeded the El Prez in every category. The location is excellent and you can walk right to the shopping/restaurant area if you want to do the tourist thing as well.

We dove all week with Blue XT Sea Diving. This is a terrific operation with very fast boats and a "valet" style dive service. Both of Blue XT Sea's boats are 6-packs, well equipped, and comfortable. The diving was exquisite. We had the pleasure of diving with Blue XT Sea dive guides/instructors Blanca, Arturo and Pedro, all of whom are top notch. I highly recommend Blue XT Sea. We were picked up at Cozumel Palace pier at 8:15 each morning. The valet service permitted us to leave all dive gear except for our wetsuits on the boat and it was all ready to go the next morning. What a pleasure.

Thank you Christi, Blanca, Arturo, Pedro, Mago and Adan for a great week of diving. See you next year!
