Denny and I traveled to Cozumel on Delta airlines leaving from Ft. Wayne and connecting through Atlanta.· The flights were uneventful.· The best kind.· We booked our trip with Al from Bay Adventures.· We stayed at Hotel Cozumel and did our diving with Dive Paradise.· The dive operation is top notch and the hotel is very clean with many activities offered every day.· We enjoyed sitting by the pool and drinking the local drinks, which for us was coconut rum/diet coke.·We did an all inclusive and the food at the Hotel·was fine but not exceptional.· We enjoyed the made to order omletes and breakfast the most.· We did walk downtown and had dinner out on two of the nights.· We enjoyed the atmosphere at Jimmy Buffet's Margariteville.· The other night we went to Poncho's Garden.· We ate there back in 2005 with Bart & Jaki.· We had a rental car and drove all the way around the island stopping at Mayan Ruins, the Tequila·factory and the beautiful·beach along the ocean coastline.· I negotiated some good prices on·Black coral jewelry and·we brought several bottles of 100% Agave Tequila home with us.·
