    I just caught this photo on the Yahoo news page of tourists in a shelter in Cancun following the storm. Oogh. I really hope things are back to normal now. What an ordeal.

    The Fujet rep I just spoke to says the free ferry rides are only for those who booked complete vacations through them. Not if you just booked air only. :(

    They have a setup at cozumeleno via Ocean-tours

    Since we'll be staying at Melia, it'll be nice to have a dive op next door. Especially one that far north.

    I'm going to Coz in mid-August and was wondering how the reefs fared. Glad to read your post that things are looking good. I guess the constant currents wipe away the silt and restore the vis pretty fast. Have you tried Palencar caves or Punta Sur or Columbia wall yet?

    Wow this thread is really really long!!

    Does anyone know what hotels are closed at this time in Coz? I hoping to go there on short notice, the 30th is when I want to leave. We are hoping to stay at the Cozumel palace, Allegero or the El Presedente, does anyone know if they are closed?
