Sounds like a nice trip. How did you manage the COVID and travel aspects of your trip? Any problems?

I live here permanantly. My reports are going to be all diving. Parking at the marina can be a pain :D.

Spotted Eagle Ray. I went down to 100' for this one but he did not leave. I was told as I left it followed me up.

My friends in Ontario are dying to get out. There are no flights now (to Cozumel) and and we were hoping maybe if they have vaccinations they can have an easier time for quarantines on their return (to save their jobs). Wishful thinking maybe?

I'm patiently waiting my turn for the vaccine. Then I'm planning a trip for sure! Thanks for the pix to tide me over.

Double mask at airport and on plane and let Dale pick me up at airport to avoid the shuttle. Hotel staff all masked and arranged for covid testing 2 days before depart at no cost. Return was a bit unsettling as Cozumel airport departure area is to small for proper distancing and had 4 planes waiting to board. Somewhat relieved that everyone must have tested negative or would not be in waiting area.
Agent at check in did not check our test paperwork however and said they would check at US arrival ICE. At Chicago ICE did not check, just scanned passport and took picture.

PS got 1 shot 3 weeks ago getting 2nd tomorrow 3/3/2021. the advantage of being over 65

The current official timeline is that all of us wanting vaccinations, should be vaccinated by September - October, perhaps earlier if things go well. The next hurtle will be the elimination of the expensive government quarantine policy on international travellers. Once this policy goes away, flights to Cozumel should resume. November maybe?
