Despite being buffeted by Hurricane Wilma's winds for over 50 hours, Scuba Club Cozumel sustained minimal damage and expects to reopen Nov. 15. The hotel had broken windows in many rooms and water damage in eight rooms, but they have already begun replacing windows and, fortunately, the rooms are mostly waterproof. The upstairs dining area came through the storm fine; however, the downstairs restaurant needs repairs. And finally, divers will be happy to hear that six of their seven boats made it through the storm without a problem.
Eighty-seven guests rode out the storm at Scuba Club Cozumel and are currently waiting for the airport to reopen so they can return home.
