    Hello all, it has been a couple years since we've been to CZM and know that the new marina changed some things. I was looking for a list of the dive shops that typically make pickups near Cozumel Palace.
    Thanks in advance.

    I believe all of these do. Aldora, Aqua Safari, Blue XT Sea, & Living Underwater Also note that Tres Pelicanos do too but in a vehicle that transports you to / from the marina.

    They actually rent a lot of taxi's which smooths the waters. As to the non taxi trips, treating the other folks at the Caleta and now the Marina with mutual respect and courtesy helps a lot. When that fails a crazy belligerent driver seems to work, at least for me.

    Brules, we took a taxi all week long last week, from the shop. Pony would go hail one then we would head out.

    Yea, I think if the Taxis found out, it would get ugly. They had a tour group from MX City come over on a bus. They were touring the whole Yucatan. They got to Coz and the taxis surrounded, stopped the bus and sat there until EVERY one got off and got in a taxi.

    3P's isn't pulling anything that would upset the taxi mafia. They use taxis all the time to take divers from town to the boat in the AM and bring them back in the PM.
