TRAVEL & TRANSFER DETAILS:
 
AIRPORT INFO 
Getting to Cozumel is very easy. The airport code is CZM and all the major airlines fly into Cozumel. You can also fly to Cancun CUN and then take a taxi to Playa where you pick up the ferry for less money. The hotel can help to set this up for you so you do not have to try and do it yourself. Email trips@singledivers.com requesting help to transfer from Cancun to Cozumel. Flights are easy to book and you can arrive ANYTIME on Saturday and depart ANYTIME on the following Saturday. Please check online or with your travel agent for pricing and schedule information. After you make your reservation, please include your flight arrival/departure information in the booking template.  If you would like SingleDivers.com to research and/or book your airfare ticket for you, we will be happy to do so for a $30 research & booking fee.

 

Airport transfers to/from hotel:

When you exit the luggage area AVOID THE TIMESHARE hustlers and proceed directly to the wall of TAXI SERVICE COUNTERS facing you on the outside wall of the airport. DO NOT EXIT or they will send you back inside to get a taxi coupon. Taxi coupons are all price controlled and you pay based upon the zone that your hotel is in. Casa Del Mar is in zone ___ (checking on it) but the price is approx $12-15 each way. Get the coupon and head outside and choose the TAXI THAT IS NEARLY FULL as they fill them up and they will be FULL before they leave. Do not think that by getting into a taxi that is only half full you will have more room. You will only have more room WAITING for the taxi to fill up. So look for the fullest taxi looking for 1 or 2 people more and take that one. You will leave sooner with the least amount of waiting.

 

Transfers to/from different vendors:

Please see the special taxi/ferry/park fees pkg we created so you don't have to come out of pocket 3-6 times per day of travel to the Cenotes and/or the Whalesharks. When they hit you up for tips just send them to me and I will take care of it. One and done! (Please buy this pkg under the optional items which will be in the shopping cart soon.)
 
VISA/PASSPORT INFORMATION
Please note that A U.S. passport valid for at least 3-months from the date of entry is required to enter Mexico. Though not required by law, some travelers have reported difficulty departing Mexico using a passport with less than three months of validity beyond the date of departure. A visa is not required, but tourists must provide evidence of return or onward travel. U.S. citizens are encouraged to carry a photocopy of their U.S. passports with them at all times, so that if questioned by local officials proof of identity and U.S. citizenship are readily available. For other global citizens, please review MEXICO visa requirements posted on the Internet.
 
TRIP INSURANCE IS OPTIONAL BUT STRONGLY SUGGESTED
If you miss any Flights to (CZM) Cozumel you MAY be able to catch a flight the next day but MANY run full and not all carriers run daily to Cozumel delaying you even more to get to the island! If you choose to self-insure that is fine but you also choose to accept all losses accordingly as SD.com nor any vendors will be responsible for losses due to non-insurance.

We recommend: 
Dive Assure please reference SingleDivers.com via the drop down menu under GLOBAL PARTNERS. 
 
Click HERE for Dive Assure for either a 'one time' policy OR ! an annual policy that is either BOTH Dive & Trip Insurance providing PRIMARY COVERAGE with excellent rates and coverage OR JUST TRIP INSURANCE. They offer annual plans as well as one time policies. They are not the cheapest but they are the most hassle free when filing a claim.
 
 
DIVING & ITINERARY:

Our weekly diving itinerary will consist of 5 days of 2 tank dives starting on Sunday and ending on Thursday. We have a house reef clean up dive planned as well as a reef restoration dive planned. (these dives are VERY shallow so are included in the pkg as air dives.) We can schedule an optional night boat dive for those interested as well as a shore night dive. Stay tuned for more details!

 

Diving in COZUMEL offers something for all skill levels with 60-90 ft of vis, mild currents that you drift along with, walls and water temps in the mid 80's this time of year. All diving is provided by Cozumel Marine World and we will be picked up and dropped off right at the dock of Casa Del Mar! The Dive lockers are down by the dock but you WILL NEED A LOCK FOR YOUR DIVE CUBBY.

While OUR personal COZUMEL WEEK Experience may vary due to weather and conditions, the outline below will give you a good feel for the exciting week in store for us! KEEP CHECKING BACK AS MANY ACTIVITIES ARE STILL BEING LINED UP FOR THIS AMAZING WEEK OF FUN IN THE SUN AND CRITTERS IN THE SEA!!!

DIVING INSURANCE:

 

DIVE Insurance is required on all trips! DIVE insurance is VERY inexpensive. Even if you have insurance that you think covers DIVING ACCIDENTS and air lifts…it is CHEAP (approx $100-$125) to get a supplemental policy to ensure you are covered for an entire year of diving. 

 

PRO TIP; The two primary suppliers of dive insurance DiveAssure.com and DAN are inexpensive enough to carry both. This way you will have the best coverage internationally, the best coverage domestically, primary insurance, secondary insurance and if a claim is denied on one policy you can submit it on the other. No matter what happens...YOU ARE COVERED!!! ... PRICELESS!!!
 
We recommend:
 

Dive Assure: for either a 'one time' policy OR an annual policy for BOTH Dive & Trip Insurance providing PRIMARY COVERAGE with excellent rates and coverage! Please use THIS LINK and/or reference SingleDivers.com via the drop-down menu under GLOBAL PARTNERS. (If you can not find the drop down, do not reference anyone and email info@singledivers.com your policy info and we will do it for you via our Dive Assure company representative. OR SIMPLY USE THIS LINK AND YOU WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY TIED TO US. )

Alternatively you can also use....
Diver's Alert Network: Please use our reference number when ordering: ID1603080   (This only works if you are a new first time DAN member.)

Cozumel is decent for beginners and great for intermediate and beyond!  NOTE If you are a new diver with 10 dives or less please be prepared to hire a DM to assist you as you will be expanding your diving skills dramatically this week. CONTACT kamala@singledivers.com to discuss if under 10 dives. :thankyou:
  • Certification in Paradise - Ask us about different certifications available on this trip. Its always nice to get certified in Paradise. Let us help you do this!  USE THE "Help with this trip" BUTTON TO REQUEST MORE INFORMATION
  • AOW NOW BEING OFFERED: We have asked about offering AOW Advanced Open Water and the class is $300 cash per person + the price of the book. Pls get the correct book revision from us FIRST. Plan to arrive Wed Aug 12th if doing the AOW or other classes.
  • Advanced Open Water - includes several 'advanced dives' such as navigation, night, and deep plus several choices of your own including photography, peak buoyancy, etc. USE THE "Help with this trip" BUTTON TO REQUEST MORE INFORMATION
  • Nitrox - includes book work, classroom instruction and sometimes the manual. Some classes include the use of a nitrox compatible computer and the gas itself. Some classes will give you a reduced rental rate for the computer and use of the gas if you take the class during the trip.  USE THE "Help with this trip" BUTTON TO REQUEST MORE INFORMATION
  • Solo Certification - This cert will enable you to dive independently of a human dive buddy by training you to dive with a mechanical dive buddy aka a pony bottle or stage bottle. - Ask about the 'enhanced solo skills' where the instructor will challenge you with several additional skills that will complement your solo cert skills enabling you to be even MORE independent and self sufficient in the water. USE THE "Help with this trip" BUTTON TO REQUEST MORE INFORMATION

PRICES: Prices for classes in Paradise are always more expensive than doing them at home. Sometimes SingleDivers.com has instructors on our trips who are happy to teach AND usually offer a member discount to anyone interested in taking a class. The more that take a class the more feasible a discount becomes .

 
 

INSURANCE, DOCUMENTATION & T&C's:
 
INSURANCE

Trip Insurance is STRONGLY SUGGESTED and/ is NOT required on this trip! TRIP insurance is RELATIVELY inexpensive. Even if you have insurance that you think covers your trip…it is CHEAP (approx $100-$200) to get a supplemental policy to ensure you are covered for your investment in your dive trip. If you opt to not get trip insurance you are responsible for all losses related to your trip including not going for any reason. If diving a LIVEABOARD please consider the liveaboard rider offer by DiveAssure.com.
 
We recommend:
 

Dive Assure: for either a 'one time' policy OR an annual policy for BOTH Dive & Trip OR just Trip Insurance providing PRIMARY COVERAGE with excellent rates and coverage! Please use THIS LINK and/or reference SingleDivers.com via the drop-down menu under GLOBAL PARTNERS. (If you can not find the drop down, do not reference anyone and email info@singledivers.com your policy info and we will do it for you via our Dive Assure company representative. OR SIMPLY USE THIS LINK AND YOU WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY TIED TO US. )

 
DOCUMENTATION
All SingleDivers.com trips require necessary documentation to facilitate booking your trip and/or making it a better experience for you.  Once you complete your documents online our automated system will take the information from your last trip with us and fill out your new trip forms for you. You then add any missing information and/or change anything that is no longer current. You will find the forms you need to complete under MY TRIPS which you will find under TRIPS in the main menu across the top of the site. Since each trip requires a unique set of docs, please choose the correct trip from your "My Trips" drop down and then complete the forms required for that trip. Some trips will also ask you to complete the resort or liveaboard's forms as well.  

The AIR AUTHORIZATION FORM is only required when you are having SingleDivers.com book air for you but this includes air that is part of the trip pkg price. 

Not all of our forms are online as they are either infrequently used or being phased out. If you need a form that is not in our online directory email trips@singledivers.com.
 

TERMS & CONDITIONS
All SingleDivers.com trips require:

  • You complete the necessary documentation as referenced above for each trip you sign up to take with us. A $75 document fee will be applied if you fail to submit your online and uploaded documents withing 21 days* of signing up for a trip or within 3 days if signing up within 45 days of departure. NOTE THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO AIRFARE UNLESS SIGNING UP WITHIN 45 DAYS OF DEPARTURE.  *Remember the Forms can be edited at any time up to 30 days prior to departure with updates such as insurance purchase/renewal, change of address, even preferences for rooming and diving so there is no reason to delay your initial Forms submissions.  This enables us to meet the reporting deadlines imposed by our suppliers.
  • SingleDivers.com LLC reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.
  • You read all the trip details before booking and commit to being responsible for post trip booking follow up by use of our TRIP PM, FORUM DISCUSSIONS  and in some cases emails. You commit to ask us how to use these tools if uncertain and commit to keeping your premier membership dues current and email on file current so we can contact you. Our tools require your dues and email to be current to work. Any delays/expenses/issues due to lack of trip information will be borne by the trip goer and NOT SingleDivers.com as we regularly and routinely use these tools to communicate extensively with you. If you are not hearing from us it means you are not using the tools we have in place. Email trips@singledivers.com for help.
  • You have read the EXPERIENCE REQUIRED & TRAINING/WORKSHOPS information in the online trip details to ensure that you are able to safely and comfortably meet the requirements of the trip. Please contact to further discuss any questions you have about attending one of our trips. We often accept students who would not otherwise meet the stated trip requirements because they are taking a class that will then enable them to meet the trip specifications and they will be diving with an instructor or dive master during the dives.
  • We require Dive Insurance for all dives and trips as stated above and we STRONGLY recommend trip insurance for all dives and trips but in some cases require it due to vendor specific mandates. Please see the online trip details under INSURANCE to see if the trip has optional or mandatory trip insurance requirements.
  • In the event of cancellation, your trip insurance will be your first line of defense. Secondary remedies include some rights afforded to you based upon when you have to cancel your trip in writing. Please see THIS link for full additional trip cancellation details.
  • Please read THIS link for our Guaranteed Double Occupancy Policy, Rooming Policies, Payment Terms, the "Ex" Rule etc
