      About this trip

      Escape the cold and join Blue Planet for a long weekend of diving in Cozumel! The island offers big reefs, warm water, great viz and a guaranteed good time. Complete your eLearning at home and then jet off to Mexico to finish your pool work and certification dives in the clear waters of the Caribbean. Our instructors will be with you every step of the way! Certified divers are welcome too. Stick around afterwards and dive the mysterious cenotes!


      Cozumel

      Cozumel is one of the most popular dive destinations in the Caribbean. With world-class drift diving and abundant marine life, beginners and advanced divers alike will delight in the underwater exploration with our expert dive guide. The choice of activities are boundless in Cozumel: golden beaches, turquoise waters, friendly people, festivals, scattered Mayan ruins, great restaurants, a myriad of stores, diving, golfing, romance, and a whole new world where everybody has a place under the sun. But the diving takes center stage...


      The Diving


      Minimum dive certification/experience:  Perfect for beginners. A great spot to complete your Open Water Diver certification, Advanced Open Water Diver and more. 


      Most dive sites are found within the boundaries of the Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park, which protects 29,000 acres of the Meso-American reef system – the second largest barrier reef system in the world. Created in 1996, the park is home to some 26 types of corals with more than 100 subspecies and more than 500 fish species, including the endemic splendid toadfish. Divers often encounter sea turtles, sharks, moray eels and other critters while drift diving on the currents Cozumel is famous for.


      Cozumel Hotel & Resort

      Cozumel Hotel & Resort is an all-inclusive resort perfectly set up for divers. It's a short walk from downtown Cozumel and right on the water front. With 3 restaurants on site plus a beach club, a huge pool and jacuzzi as well as dive lockers, rinse tanks, shore diving and a private pier, it's the perfect place for a quick dive getaway. 


      We've reserved Standard rooms furnished with either one king size bed or two double beds, a private balcony or terrace, flat screen TV, a direct dial telephone, radio/alarm-clock, safety deposit box, iron, and ironing board. All bathrooms are marble finish with shower and bathtub, hairdryer and toiletries.


      Travel

      Round-trip flights to Cozumel are around $500 and go up from there. You can also fly into Cancun and either take a local flight to Cozumel on Maya Air OR take the ferry to Cozumel from Playa del Carmen. You should plan to arrive at Hotel Cozumel on March 25th. If you get in early, you can get a shore dive in at the hotel! When leaving, choose any flight that leaves after 1 PM on the 29th. Please contact the shop before booking your flights.

      We had a wonderful trip! It was thoughtfully organized and well executed. The accommodations were great, the dive shop was really professional, and we ended up having perfect weather. We look forward to another Blue Planet trip in the future!

      I had an amazing time! Great people, awesome experience and most importantly I am a newly certified diver. Already booked the next trip with Blue Planet and counting down.

      This was a short, but densely packed trip. The trip was well organized, the leader did a good job communicating with everyone and organizing the various meetups. The dive shop selected was nice (not fantastic), and I thought the accommodations selected were very nice (above expectations). We stayed at a small hotel, so get togethers happened organically and were organized by the group as well. Really appreciated how travel arrangements and transfers were handled as well. I definitely plan to travel with this group again.

      It was a great trip! The people on the trip were nice and the weather was perfect. The dive operator had some high and low notes. The dive masters and the crew were great. The rental gear quality, cleanliness, and charges were not great. They charged non-divers just to be on the boat and they charged $15/ tank of nitrox which is quite high. Overall I highly recommend the trip!
      By Sarah A for Weekend Getaway to Belize on 20 Jan, 2023
      Thanks for your review, Sarah! We're glad to hear you enjoyed the trip despite a few issues with the Belize operator. We will definitely address those with them. We hope to see you on another trip soon!
