    Water temps in the winter in Coz? Who cares if you wear a full 5MM suit and sport a beanie (which I do). Water temp in Dec when we go is prob around 80. In Jan/Feb I assume it may drop to the upper 70's like 77-80 maybe. Anything you may read that says it is colder than that water temp is total BS.

    I hit 74 once in February but that was due to a fresh water underground spring, 77-78 was the normal temp that trip.

    It was a misunderstanding. What Don posted were records of air temperatures, plus he was pointing out that a couple of days it showed freezing air temps, which are clearly in error.

    Just returned from Cozumel. Overall a great dive trip and definitely worth going and glad we did not change our destination. Yes , there's were some dives where the reef looked like the first new snowfall of the winter with white as far as the eye can see , but also sites that looked like Cozumel diving a couple years ago. Santa Rosa wall still awesome. Lots of Eagle Rays visiting. Hopefully it turns around soon.

    What’s the reef closure status and plan? I just looked for an update on closure and related news and found nothing. Can anyone, like maybe @Christi, give us an update or share a good news source for the same?

    And what will we learn from the short closure?

    Apprehensive about planning a dive vacation in Cozumel. Wondering what will dictate and the direct their next step, Will they open the southern reefs or close other neighboring reefs? I still wonder about those environmentally friendly sounding 'Marine Park Fees' which obviously went towards zilch.
