Can't give you any facts, but after three winters I'd say everyone is from Colorado. We'll maybe not everyone, a lot from Texas maybe Arizona and Minnesota. Very few from the Northwest. I have a feeling it has a lot to do with cheap airfare and/or short flights. Then the rest of us.
April was our second trip to Cozumel and it seemed we met a large number of Divers from Colorado. Last year the divers we met in Cozumel were a mix from all over the US not just from one state.
I also heard that Colorado certifies more divers than any other landlocked state (from a Colorado diver), but I was also heard the same about Arizona (from a LDS) ---which I can understand why as it is HOT here now!

Colorado does turn out a lot of divers. We have the highest per capita number of divers in the country, and last I heard, third highest number overall, after California and Florida. And yes, we often go to Cozumel.
When people ask most Colorado divers where we go diving around here, we answer "first we drive to the airport..."
