 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Price: $1699 per person (diver)/$900 per person (non-diver), based on double occupancy - single supplement may apply.
4 nights in Cozumel, 3 nights in Tulum - dives total, experience two entirely different dive environments in one trip. 
This is not your typical trip to Mexico! The trip will be led by Manuel "Caballito", a native of Tulum, Mexico, who currently resides in Seattle. Manuel has 20 years of experience diving and leading trips to the area. 
This trip is highly specialized to our group, there will be no rushed 'cattle boat' trips, no huge 'gringo' all inclusive resorts, no trips to the same Cenote that everyone visits.
Under the philosophy that dive travel should be able enjoying and supporting local businesses and cultures - not damaging them, wecaballito.jpg will be staying at environmentally conscious hotels & diving in a relaxed atmosphere with businesses that will support the local peoples, not huge foreign corporations. 
We will have our own personal guide, an expert in the local area both above and below the water - who is available 24hrs a day to answer questions....   and who deals with ALL the local travel logistics! You don't have to figure out how to get your dive gear to the boat, or to the Cenotes, or how to buy tickets for the ferry from Cozumel to the mainland - you just have to show up, dive, relax and have a GREAT week!.
