    Are any of those locations many of the Atlanta neighborhoods that you mention?

    And the places without running water are they so common that you can find them easily in nearly every town?

    But if are so offended by the term "third world" we can use the less offensive modern term of "middle income countries" and guess which country is on the list of middle income countries?

    That does not exist (that I’m aware of) and would be somewhat expensive to do, but it’s a VERY attractive idea! Why maintain a separate gas analyzer (or two) for oxy and monoxide and laboriously check every fill when the transmitter pod on your reg could do it for you automagically?

    That is a very serious accusation on the professionalism of every dive guide in whole Mexcio.
    Far more interesting then determining which gender is more dangerous to coral reef.

    I have dived in many countries mainly in SE Asia and never ever came across such a remark on local dive guides. As I have never dived in Mexico so could anyone confirm this "blanket statement" please? Hard to believe to be honest.

    The camps in the video are much nicer than the hundreds of camps inhabited by thousands in the Portland Oregon metro area.

    I wouldn't exactly put it in that category unless you are talking about some of the nicer AI resorts or perhaps the number of Houstonians that travel to Coz... But it does take about as much time to fly from Houston to Cozumel as to drive from Houston's southern to northern suburbs. (Galveston to Conroe)

    It, like much of the criticism, should not be.

    Is that something to brag about?
    I guess they have better materials to work with. What about all the rats, disease, filth, drugs, crime, stench, is that the same?

    I had an insta buddy a few years ago in Cozumel who was from the Isle of Man. He was a good diver.
