I had a fabulous time diving with Nora, Harold and Nancy. The last dive was the best dive I had in 20 years. We saw at least 4 nurse sharks, turtles, drum fish, lobster walking around, plus much more.
My return flight was cancelled and had to be re-booked in Cozumel. The Miami to LAX flight was late so I missed my flight from LAX to San Jose. But, I was able to get on the next flight to San Jose. All in all, I had a great trip.

We really enjoyed the Occidental Allegro in Cozumel. The room upgrade put us closer to the beach however the rooms were small. The food was good and the diving in Cozumel was excellent as always.
When we arrived at Allegro they offered us an “upgrade” since they were overbooked. The upgrade was to Secrets Aura. We accepted the upgrade and were very happy that we did! We continued to dive with Pro Dive at Allegro. Pro Dive was a good operation. We were lucky to have had 4 dives as a small group of 4. I did notice that some of the dive boats were packed to the gills overflowing with divers and tanks. The equipment storage was rather unique as everyone was given a basket to store their gear in and then you turn it into the shop and they store it away somewhere. The baskets were not numbered or coded or have an recognizable identifier. This led to numerous people having difficulty finding their gear and ending up wearing a different BCD and regulator each day. I was really surprised too see how disorganized it was considering that they were catering to so many divers. The diving was great! Much better than Cayman! The caves and swim throughs were excellent. The boat rides to the dive sites short and easy. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer and do more dives! I really was surprised at how good the diving was in Cozumel.
It was very nice in Hotel Allegro (the resort is very nice with a wonderful Caribbean beach, the diving organization is better in scuba club but in scuba club the beach is not nice at all and the reef is absolutely spoiled) the only thing is that Allegro burnt during our last night, at 6:30 am they came to tell us that the hotel was burning and all the other people woke up at 3:00 am to go to the other Grand Occidental Resort while we were sleeping! Fortunately nothing happened to us, as we had a room near the beach while the reception and some rooms near the reception got the fire!

Great vacation! The diving was superb and the dive crews and masters were excellent. The resort was fantastic with multiple pools, great food and plenty of bars for "refueling." They had a very nice beach and beautiful water for swimming. Resort staff was very friendly. Accommodations very comfortable. I would gladly visit there again!
