Trip Features:

Getting There:

You are on your own for airfare or use your airline points, but as of 9/30, cheapo air was advertising 1-stop travel from CVG to Cozumel for $872 and from Dayton for $674.  Given the recent State Department travel warnings, it is probably best to fly directly to Cozumel and be picked up at the airport versus taking a lower fare to Cancun, then a bus ride to Playa del Carmen, then a ferry to Cozumel as we've done in the past.

The Hotel Location:

Situated in front of Playa del Carmen, Cozumel is a teardrop-shaped coral island, formed by a limestone plateau of 151 sq. miles/ 392 sqkm. Measuring 34 miles/ 56km from North to South and 8 miles/ 14km from East to West, Cozumel is Mexico largest island and the oldest in the Caribbean group. The island is separated from the mainland by a channel only 12 miles/ 19km wide.  The resort (shown on map) is on the southeast shore.

The Diving: 

There are more than 30 dive sites waiting to be explored and the majority are situated along the West coast and southern end of the island. The dive operator is "Pro DIve, Mexico". Their boats leave the hotel jetty in front of the dive center for two tank dives in the morning and afternoon, as well as for exciting night dives, and take you to Cozumel´s stunning dive sites of Palancar and Santa Rosa Reef among many others within 5-15 min.
