    AS - the tanks are AL80's; the $90 does not include taxes (16%); the marine park fee is $5 (it would be less if you paid in pesos I think, but they charge $5 US); nitrox is $14 a tank; and they have lockers to store your gear at no additional fee.

    Scuba with Alison picks you up at the Fiesta Americana pier - no additional charge for the pickup at the pier. FYI, some resorts (like Sunscape and Secrets) charge a fee to use their pier ($3 or $4 per day), which I think is a rip-off for an all inclusive. They don't charge it if you're using their in-house dive op, Dive House.

    @jonhall - I just traded emails with someone at AquaSafari and the prices DO include the taxes. Sorry I had that wrong - happy that I did though. So No taxes on any of those prices - no extra 16%.

    American Airlines stranded several hundred passengers on a Cozumel to Miami trip. Then stranded hundreds more by cancelling flight last minute on Miami to San Diego and other flights. Many spent 3-6 hours in line for rebooking and hotel voucher. American has devolved into Spirit airlines, but American charges double to triple what Spirit and Southwest charge.

    I'm startled to see a cruiseship!

    I'm sorry, loady? Stranded? Just dumped hundreds of passengers and left them to their own devices?

    Do you know why or at least, what was American's excuse?

    That picture was from a year or two before. It's certainly out of place right now!!

    Roger read yesterday that there were 1.9 million people flying last weekend, and the same time last year it was 450,000. Time to step up their game for the 'nearly-post-covid' travel demand - bring back anyone who was furloughed, if they haven't already. I've read several AA negative stories lately. Not good.
