Is there a favorite travel site that you use for dive travel? Do you take advantage of trips offered by your local dive shop? Do you book airfare as part of the package, or book it separately? Etc...

Interested in everyone’s experiences!

I am a big Cozumel guy, so I figured I would put a few tricks to reducing the cost of that experience... here goes

1.  Obtain a Southwest credit card and use it to get points... they have a very rich and affordable program

2. Fly into Cancun and take the ADO bus to playa del carmen $12

4. Take the ferry from playa to Cozumel...and your there

5.  Book 60 days out, it’s typically the cheapest time.

6. Try Scuba club Cozumel in late September ... great deals

Costco also has some great deals, definitely worth a look.

George, can you give me some more info about your trip? I am planning on going there next year. I haven’t decided specifics. Whats the best time of year to go? I went to Havana about a month ago just to check out ease of travel to Cuba.
Thanks
