    Both are good that time of year. Each are completely different types of diving. What are you looking for?

    Cozumel all the way... use Aqua Safari, Blue Angel divers... I used to use Dive Paradise but had some issues a few years ago and have not used them since.
    The diving in Cozumel is worth the trip always! My opinion, but there it is...

    Drift diving is easy....you just drift along with the current.

    No, there are no caves in Cozumel. You can take the ferry over to Cancun and dive a Cenote there. It's more like a cavern than a cave.

    I'd advise Coz for diving.... Nassau for the beaches....

    Have not YET dived Cozumel, but just back from Marsh Harbour diving with Abaco Dive Adventures. These guys were top notch as we had our own boat (party of 5-1/2), set our own schedule and pretty much did what we wanted while getting some awsome tours. Hard to pick a favorite (the caverns and swim-throughs were way up there) but it would have to be this...

    I was in Coz just a couple of short months ago (was it only back in June???), we took the fast boats over to Playa Del Carmen to do a day of Cenote dives. You don't have to go all the way up to Cancun for Cenotes, we went back into the jungles from Playa, was about half hour or 45 minutes from downtown Playa. Great diving for my first Cenotes...... We used Yucatek Divers for that and a whale shark snorkel. I'd totally recommend Stefan for the Cenotes if you use Yucatek, he was VERY informative and made the whole thing that much more fun.
