    What difference does that make? If the price of a dive in pesos happened to change at the same rate as the US$ to peso exchange rate, the price to US citizens would stay the same. That's all the dive shops are doing, and they have the right to change their prices if they want to. They could just as easily post their prices in pesos and change them constantly as the exchange rate changes. If it makes you happy, convert the dive price to pesos and figure out how many Canadian dollars that is. You'll end up in the same place.

    The vast majority of Cozumel divers are US citizens. The Cozumel dive shops cater mostly to US citizens. It's not a coincidence.

    Sounds great to me. Make mine Leon Negra or Bohemia Oscura.

    Just so you will know, Aldora paid Dive Professionals in US Dollars ( or peso equivalent) at least when I was there--and I expect that has continued.

    i find this very interesting. how is that even legal ? not suggesting you were doing anything illegal. just cannot understand how this would even be allowed.

    Dear DevilEye Dog,

    I like your attitude and eagerness to enjoy the wonders of Cozumel. Got a deal for you that should make your dreams come true.

    Get your airfare and enough money for food (its cheap here) and you can stay in the Villa Aldora free and dive free with Aldora. Just mention me when you make reservations on line.

    Enjoy,

    Dave Dillehay

    Salary set in USD and paid in pesos? I don’t think it’s that odd.

    i think you need to go back and read my post with the pricing examples. as you can see, if they did that, your cost today would be less and so would mine. doing it the way they currently do it, your cost is the same but mine increases. why is this so hard for people to understand ? just because some do not understand, does not make the arithmetic incorrect.
