    I'd agree, except that any diving is likely to be in a cenote. I assume he'd do it in something like Car Wash which is wide and open and fairly shallow in the open section. It has lines setup and is used as a training site. You just would be very unlikely to do any overhead stuff sidemount.

    Honestly, I'd have no problem trying sidemount even if he did it in the bay rather than in one of the cenotes. I'm undecided as to whether or not I want to do that yet, but I still have a few weeks to figure it out. Maybe I get with one of our tech guys at my LDS and see if they can hook me up with a couple of SM dives where we do all of our OW training. I'll actually be DMing for one of them out there this weekend. Maybe I can see if he's got a SM rig he can set me up with for a couple dives after the OW class is done on Sunday. And if I like it, maybe I just opt to do the SM class.

    Update: I Did EXACTLY that! Dove with Martin and one other girl from Argentina who was getting her AOW on Wednesday 6/12/19 and was absolutely floored! Even mentioned you and those cookies, which were wonderful btw. First dive we did Casa Cenote, followed by a 107ft dive in The Pit and the third dive down the Bat Cave line in Dos Ojos. I gotta say diving The Pit has to be one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring things I have ever seen in my life! And I agree, Martin is an excellent diver! His position and profile in the water was admirable to say the least. Next time I'm on the mainland, I'll definitely be making more dives with them! So thank you SB for all the suggestions!

    Here are a few pics for your viewing pleasure.

    For me Cozumel has become a waste both diving and the ambience has left ( all inclusive ruined the Mom and Pop eateries)
    My suggestion is to dive the Mayan Riviera and do Isla Mujeres underwater museum and if you dare the ripping dive around the point.

    Been there done that
    I have coupons for Vidanta Resorts anywhere Mexico golf and dive center onsite 2 bedroom as low as $1,000 a week very secure
