Don't think of Chicago,or Naperville as land locked, or unfreindly to diving. I'm sure you have heard of Pearl Lake near Rockford, or Haige quarry near Kankakee. There's also a lot of diving available in Lake Michigan, day trips to Bonne Terre mine's in MO.,as well as Meremet Springs in southern Illinois.
I'm sure you'll enjoy Cozumel. My wife also was recently certified, classwork in the US but O-W dives were done in Puerto Galera in the Philippines.
The main thing is to DIVE-DIVE-DIVE.
No, we fully realize Chicago is not landlocked. We have the lakes and we had also heard of Haige quarry. So this is no where near locked.... hell, I grew up in CO - it had much less opportunity for diving.
