    This needs a letter campaign, etc. to government and tourism offices from Mexico City all the way down the penisula and to every operator and liveaboard company.

    I was looking for someone to talk to at DEMA but nobody from the Mexican Tourism or BCS Tourism office was there. Only a couple of operators.

    Let’s not put words that weren’t said where they might belong. I’m sure a less pejorative term might be self initiated judicial beneficence on behalf of the state administration.

    I'm sure there are some Cartel members who also have a dive/photo hobby. Anybody know a guy? I've heard they are experts at negotiating.

    Given that Nautilus at least is going full-court press about it, it seems perfectly fair to me.

    You are required to pay a 16% fee on the total value of all your personal items over $500 in Mexico. Cabo & La Paz are enforcing this law whether you enter by plane, boat, or land.
