Yes 3Ps got us a taxi when it was all five of us, or a ride in their truck when there was just two or three of us.

That pretty much includes most to all of them. You can narrow your search a bit if you know whether you like a small fast boat or a slower larger one, if you want an op that handles all your equipment (which you pay for), and if you are content to dive on an AL80 tank (nearly all ops) or a larger steel tank (only a few ops, and again you'll pay for the difference). If you don't have preferences to those questions you can pretty much throw a dart.
Maybe whether you like the boat to pick you up at an intown dock or like going to the southern marina to board. It's a long boat ride from town docks, but I detest that southern marina now.

anyone been in the last couple months and have a dive shop recommendation in the recent time of covid?

This thread did a pretty good study and came up with a chart. Finding a (Best) Dive Op in Cozumel
Well, the last version is on page 6 so I'll add it here.

Not sure when the OP plans to go, but my trip is getting nearer (end of November.) I plan to do a quick check/update of all of the dive ops I put in the chart in the thread that Don referred to. Will do that within the next 2 weeks and get it posted.

The next time I go, I will dive with Julio Kin. I have dived with him when he would sub himself to Tres Pelicanos. Great dive master, and fun guy to be around.

We are also offering our 2 tank trips at 95 USD all included.
*This includes all taxes, marine park fees, and FREE NITROX.

Not sure about the rooms, but the diving part is pretty good - it includes 3 things one normally has to pay for with Aldora: 16% tax of $15.20 per 2 tank dive, marine park fee of $4.50 per day, and $10 per tank for nitrox - a total of $39.70 per 2 tank dive savings.

Casa Mexicana, Hotel Vista del Mar, and Villas MayaLuum.

A different type of deal for the 5 days of diving since the costs are included in the dive and stay package, but 2 of the 3 resorts indicate taxes are included in the package price. All do include free nitrox, but marine park fees are not included.

If they could always offer the flat rate of $95 that included all taxes, nitrox, and fees, that would be amazing.

thank you everyone this is more than i need to go on. thread closed as far as i'm concerned!

Sorry, but this is the Cozumel sub-forum. The thread closes when it gets split by the mods for too many off-topic posts that cannot be simply culled out.

Here are some ways to steer the direction of the thread towards closing after 20-30 more pages:
  • How should I go about meeting a friend coming off a cruise ship for the day?
  • We are staying at an AI...
  • How much is a taxi from...?
  • I really want to dive Devil's Throat, but my buddy who only has 10 dives...
This is just a free sample pack. If you would like to upgrade to the premium thread destroyer level, please contact me for pricing.
