Yuca-tan, or you can swim -- or best of all, you can Dive Paradise at the new four-star Fiesta Inn Cozumel. It doesn't take much investigation to realize that Cozumel is high on the list of most desirable Caribbean dive destinations. Maybe it's the water clarity, maybe it's the ease of drift diving, or maybe it's the fabulous colors or the fact that there are more fishes per coral head than just about anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere. Regardless of the reasons, sooner or later you too will find your way to Fiesta Inn. From the moment you set foot in the lobby of the Fiesta Inn, you'll begin to appreciate the resort's special ambience; you'll find the ultimate in comfort, service, convenience and laid-back tropical luxury for divers. The three-story brightly colored beachfront hotel is conveniently located a half-mile from the famous strip of party bars in downtown San Miguel and about 4 miles from the airport. Each of the attractive guest rooms is fully air conditioned and features marble baths, remote-control color satellite TV, U.S. direct-dial phone and a splendid view of the ocean or the huge freshwater pool. A quick orientation walk around the property will quickly convince you that if you enjoy a whole lot of luxury with your dive vacation, then you've come to the right place. You'll find a beachfront restaurant, a gathering place lobby bar and the elegant La Fiesta restaurant. Some of the other amenities that you will enjoy include easy access to the beach, the large freshwater swimming pool, a tennis court, and motorcycle and car rental. On the reef side of things is Dive Paradise, located on the beach. The friendly staff has been providing safe, reliable and fun-filled scuba adventures in Cozumel for over 15 years. The owner and manager of operations at Dive Paradise is Renee Apple Applegate, who, after 30 years of training divers, is proud to have earned for Dive Paradise the reputation of being the name you know and trust. The professional enthusiasm of the staff helps Dive Paradise maintain its enviable safety record and high level of customer appreciation. After all, in a service-oriented business, an operation is only as good as its staff. That's why, according to Renee Applegate, We are fortunate to attract and keep a dedicated group. Our current management team has over 11 years working together; reception personnel, over 12 years. The dive masters are home-grown, and most are home-trained, too. Most have been with Dive Paradise for years, and all conscientiously provide the highest level of quality service. The entire staff is fluent in English and is professional and enthusiastic. Every craft in the fleet of 11 dive boats has DAN oxygen units, and all dive masters are certified in first aid and are IANTD-trained. The entire dive staff has also completed a marine biology specialty course to ensure that they can identify what you see on your dives and that they understand how to protect and preserve the reef for future generations. A first-class resort with a first-class dive operation combine to create a world-class dive destination for your enjoyment.
