OFFICIAL UPDATE FROM THE HOTEL:

I have finally reached the hotel. Here is the update on our trip:

Diving:

The rain and wind stirred up some sand but it has settled and the waters are clear and calm!

Hotel & Travel:

1. Some flights are being re-routed to Cancun and the airlines/operators are paying your ferry ride fee, etc from the airport to the ferry to Cozumel. (If this happens to you...you will be about a mile from the hotel so simply take a taxi and I'll refund you for it.)

2. The hotel only sustained minor damage to one grass roof that was over the outside beach bar. It should be fixed in a day or so.

3. The swimming pool is currently drained of water merely awaiting the go ahead that they can refill it.

4. The hotel has lights, power, food, but no tv, phone, or ac. Current temps are in the mid 80's. Full power to support ac, tv etc. should be restored within the next 4 days. It may be sooner but we may have a few days with no ac! Oh well...we'll just have to uh...drink more to cool off.

(If everyone brings an extra bottle of 'something' we'll just get extra mixers and do add'l happy hours to 'beat the heat'!)

5. The hotel is excited about us coming and they even have a few extra rooms so Bruno if you are reading this....come on down!!!

Or if anyone wants to have a last minute get away to Mexico...you can still join us!!!

Since you guys are flying charter (I'm coming in on Delta Airlines), I thought you might be interested.

My planes, both ways, have opened up a lot of seats. Guess some people chickened out. We might have room to move on the island (and make some good deals at the shops). It's going to be a buyers market.

I went down during Ivan last year. They about jumped me to sell to me. Nobody in town.

I might look at some afternoon dives with others. I do plan on being in the water by Friday afternoon for sure.
I hope that "about 4 days" to fix the A/C is in our time, and not south of the border time! Heat indices this time of year are regularly 105-110.

Heat is just a state of mind. Just another reason to do repetitive night dives!!!!!!!!

The bars are functional...the roof has some extra ventilation so we are good! Oh yes...the pool part is dry for now.

We can do shore dives for free and night shore dives for free and boat night dives for I think $35 or so.

I just wanted to wish all of you the best on your Cozy trip and be safe. I don't know what the conditions are down there now but I hope the storm hasn't affected what I am sure will be a great trip for all of you. I only wish I could've tagged along, my first ow dive was there and I can't wait to go back :hiya:

God speed to you all!

Hey did I mention that you can still join us on this trip???? Seems a silly little hurricane scared a few people off so the hotel is NOT full and they have some rooms!

Come on down and join us!! There are surprisingly some reasonable last minute flights to Cozy.

AND...you can come for just 4 days if you want! -ww


note: if we can't match up roommates you may have to do the single room thing but right now I think we have room for one more person room wise so come on down!!!
