Cozumel

Drift diving and an all-inclusive resort

Where we are diving

Join our Trip Leaders Joe Fuller and Megan Oswald in Cozumel for a great dive getaway – friendly locals, good food, lively nightspots, warm water, great visibility and white sandy beaches. Most dive sites are found within the national marine park, where you can find 26 types of coral, with more than 100 subspecies, and more than 500 fish species, including the endemic splendid toadfish and loggerhead, hawksbill and green turtles. The dive sites are a short 5-15-minute boat ride away. From shallow dives to secluded, seldom visited, current-swept dives, there’s a dive for everyone. Just relax and enjoy the drift diving experience.

What prior travelers say

“Fiesta Americana and Dive House are sure to please. I am already planning my next trip back. Fiesta Americana has seven restaurants to choose from, all rooms have an ocean view, there is a swim up bar, and everything is included. It is perfect for families, couples, or the single diver! Dive House continues to impress me with their ability to find the best creatures, best dive sites perfect for our group, and the valet diving is hard to beat. Everyday upon returning to the dock the staff grabbed my equipment, washed it, store it for the night, and it was right back in my spot for me the next day. I cannot say enough great things about staying and diving with Fiesta Americana and Dive House.”

Important Details

Know before you go

Electricity
No adapters required, if you’re visiting from the Unites States. Cozumel operates on 110 V.

Bug spray
Be sure to bring it with you! Mosquitos are mostly active in the early morning hours and around sundown.

Water
Although the water that comes out of the faucet on Cozumel is in fact potable, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should drink it. While it’s okay to bathe in (just be careful not to get it in your mouth), use bottled water for absolutely everything else.

Credit cards
You may use your credit cards in most stores and restaurants. Just remember that the charge will be made in pesos and your bank will charge you in dollars. It’s also important to know how much you are being charged before paying.

Money
1 Mexican Peso equals 0.0549 US Dollar. So, 20 MXN is about 1 USD.

Temperature
Cozumel is part of one of the hottest, most tropical climates in Mexico. With average temperatures of 80°F and cool breezy nights at a low average of 70°F.  Water temperatures range from 78°F – 82°F throughout the year.

Resort amenities
The newly renovated rooms have been furnished with either one king size bed or two double beds, bottle water, flat screen TV, radio/alarm-clock, safety deposit box, iron, and ironing board. All bathrooms are marble finish with a shower and bathtub, hairdryer and toiletries. All rooms are also non-smoking.
