sandiegocarol,

you're on the list too for both Holbox and Cozumel

I can't wait to dive with you in Holbox!!

Kim

Thanks-- i'm really looking forward to this! looks like i should fly in a day ahead, can't find any way to get there by 12:30 on the 14th and might as well be in Meh-hee-co :P than anywhere else. Let me know what any of you gals have planned for the 13th and add one more :welcome:

Holbox looks great! And for the divers wondering about a snorkel trip, lets just report that this diver had a incredible encounter near Kona snorkeling with a whale shark. Seems that we were anchored in his favorite spot during our surface interval. Maybe heresy to say this here, but ten minutes of swimming with the whale shark was better than many of the decent dives I did that week in the Kona area (and certainly more memorable).

Well, I already signed up for the NC wreck trip two weeks before this one. Gosh, can I do two fly-in weekend trips in the same month??? :diver:

Ladies thanks for asking me what I am doing on the evening of the 13th in Dallas :dltears: ......Guess I will find my own entertainment :dance: :P :dance: Perhaps fingrabber will have time to get together :D
You must endeavor to pursue!

ok, I'm doing the math and now I'm confused. You have not posted a price including bulk air from DFW yet right? So I see $499 for the holbox piece and $825 for the entire 10 days? Is that right? So for me it looks something like this:

Holbox only
Trip fee $499
Flight to Cancun $560
1 Night in a Hotel$100? Anyone know what a hotel room in Cancun costs?
_____
$1159

10 Day trip
Trip Fee $825
Flight $560 (apparently it's the same to and from Canc/Coz)
Hotel in Cancun $100
_____
$1485
or is it + $ 499
= $1984 ?



Thanks!!!

Thanks Kim. I think I got it figured out now. But I'll wait to hear from Kamala. The big question will then be what will be a per-day cost for Coz post Holbox.

Thx!

Mandi, the correct pricing for the 10 day trip is Holbox plus Cozumel plus your flight plus your hotel in Cancun = $1984
