The first review I did on this site can be found below. It was written BEFORE hurricane Wilma. I was staying at Caribe Blu hotel and dove at this site one day before Wilma hit and experienced the hurricane first hand on the island. I finally returned to the island for some diving in February of 2007 and again stayed at Caribe Blu. The hotel itself is even better than it was before the hurricane hit. They have done a nice job rebuilding. Unfortunately, the dive site was pretty much blown away by Wilma. While the site remains a great place for a checkout dive and maybe some night time exploring with a little marine life, it is nothing close to what it used to be. Now, it's just sand and some rubble piles. You will still see a variety of fish but the coral is almost entirely missing. Only a few small heads here and there. Too bad really. Basically, if you are staying at Caribe Blu then do the dive, but don't make the trip to the property JUST for the dive. It's simply not worth it for the time being. All that negative said, this is still a great property and a nice little first dive of your trip, and Cozumel is as wonderful a place as it always was. The island's charm remains and the drift diving is still fantastic! Another positive is that the entry is even easier now, if that's possible, than it used to be. Just walk in, with nothing to trip on or avoid now. Enjoy!!!
