Back to Cozumel!! We went back to our beloved Iberostar. See my previous detailed review here.
We had a plan for the second trip. We spent the long, cold winter in Pennsylvania completing our PADI Open Water theory online. We preferred doing it that way so that we weren’t spending our vacation in a classroom. We prepaid for our Open Water completion and extra dives ahead of time through the Dressel website. This saved us 20% off of our total and we didn’t have to schedule our dives until we got to the resort.
Since we did our OW theory online, we had to do 4 pool sessions and 4 OW dives over the course of 2 days. Dressel has the best instructors. They are all consistent with the utmost concern for safety. We felt more than prepared for our first dive.
The water in Cozumel is crystal clear with unlimited visibility. The reefs are some of the most beautiful in the world.
Our first official dive picture!

Look closely above, there is a tiny seahorse.
