Anyone know the availability of internet access at the hotel in Cozumel?


There is one computer in the lobby. There is also free wireless in the lobby, if you have your own laptop.



UPDATE:


The wifi in the lobby is free but you will need to now enter a passcode which is cdm50

They will also tell it to you at the front desk!

The Cozumel dive boat carries a special net to catch lionfish. Too bad the divemaster didn't bother to take it on the dive that I spotted 3 small ones sitting pretty at around 100 feet, and another one nearby (not shown). (30 seconds, poor quality due to lack of light at depth and crap camera). I found another, larger, lionfish on another dive but again, the net was on the boat. They brought the net on the next dive, but I didn't spot anything to catch.



The nets will be on our boats daily! We'll have one per DiveMaster. Kamala

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

Hey gang...the timeshare salesmen are HORRIBLE. When you clear customs and walk thru the door they are standing in front of you and near the people with the signs picking up for groups. Turn either to the LEFT or the RIGHT and head to the cashier that says TAXI's OR Ground Transportation. (If you turn to the Right it is the 3rd cashier booth.) The timeshare people will try to engage you...DO NOT TALK TO THEM AT ALL. I repeat...

DO NOT TALK TO THEM AT ALL.

The cashier will ask where you are going tell them Casa Del Mar. It will be $8 US. Correct change is preferred. DO NOT TALK TO ANYONE EXCEPT THE CASHIER. You will NEVER get away from the timeshare people. The locals here say you may have to be rude to them and to not worry about it. So turn LEFT or RIGHT and find the Taxi / Ground Transport booth and get your taxi ticket then head outside.

Once you head outside then look for the FULLEST van you can find that is going to the hotels. Each driver will tell you which van to go too. They will NOT leave until the van is full so be prepared. Get your space in the van and then be prepared to wait awhile. (You can send one person to get some Margaritas from the Margarita stand. Or just wait til they are FREE at the hotel.)

See you all soon! kamala

Here is a list of arrival times. Try to get together to share rides to the hotel if you can. Also let me know if I post the wrong info for you. Some people have changed their flights.

IMPORTANT FOOD UPDATE:

Hey gang just wanted to tell you that your all inclusive meal plan covers everything but lobster, shrimp and premium liquor. However you can get all the above for a reasonable upcharge.

Carla you can order just about anything on the menu made with vegetables. I will speak to you further when you arrive!

(It was mentioned in an earlier post, in response to runner_diver_artcollector's questions. Easy to miss with so much on this thread!)
