... quickly warmed up after being in it for a few minutes. The weather was just perfect, sunny with 80 degrees and a nice breeze. We decided to have dinner at noon. The guacamole was excellent but that was surpassed by the grilled grouper and shrimp.
About 2 pm we decided to head back since Silhouette departed at 4. I had a great time and would return here again. I went up on the observation deck to watch ...
... by bright yellow and white Spanish casa’s which housed little tourist shops, restaurants and banks. A few local men wheeled carts selling juice or empanadas and the touts around the sides tried every trick in the book to get you into their restaurant.

... few others docked in town that day and so for once, the town was extremely busy so we got a break from the over zealous shop keepers trying to sell us souvenir items all branded with Cozumel. Think Cozumel, think tourists, souvenir shops, cruise ships and for some unknown reason - lots of jewellery stores specialising in diamonds. Would I go back to Cozumel? Probably not, there are better islands right around the corner.
... to enjoy an iced tea made from some local flowers. Cozumel is near the heart of the Mayan territory the Island was a sort of Mecca for Mayans, with young person expected to visit here once in their lives. Like most of Mexico, it is a largely Catholic country and we stopped in the Catholic Church for a few minutes. It was a relatively plain sanctuary.

There were two fails however besides the ear; the first being that we tried to use the underwater camera for the first time but it kept fogging up because the camera was wet, and the second was that we couldnīt use our own regs because we were missing a fourth hose to connect to the BCD, massive fail.

Historical Traveler Reviews Caribe Blu Hotel Cozumel
We had reservations at the Coral Princess for our first real vacation in 4 years. Somehow I misunderstood the Expedia reservation and thought when I requested ocean-front and they confirmed - that was what they were comfrming. Instead we ended up with what the hotel called a 'garden view' which meant overlooking the highway and parking lot. After complaining to Expedia they sent us to a hotel at the other end of town. When we passed Caribe Blu I recognized the name from being online so often and we went in to see if they could put us up for 5 nights. The very sweet hotel manager from the states said sure and showed us what we would be getting. It was a walk up but once there was worth the climb. Clean, nicely appointed - primitive artist chic - the rooms were large, good mattresses, lots of hot water and towels, and there was that beautiful view! Huge balcony overlooking the water with the most amazing sunsets right there every night. Our vacation was really saved. The location is great - even if you are not a diver as my husband and I are not yet. Internet Cafe and market a short way up the road. Try the restaurant next door for breakfast and lunch. Excellent value for the money. Oh, and Expedia refunded our money immediately and handled our issues on the telephone in a very professional manner. Rent a jeep and head for the other side of the island for the most beautiful beaches, saphire water - and beach clubs with drinks, massages and food right at your lounge chair.
We stayed 5 nights here, 12/27 ~ 1/1/05, in 2 rooms on the 4th floor. It is a fantastic find, even when compared to the high-end resorts on the island. Yes, the hotel is simple and basic..it does not offer room service, or plush decor in the rooms, or the little baskets of shampoo & conditioner, or a full-serve restaurant, or elevator. What it does offer are very large rooms, simple and clean. Space for luggage, full-length mirror, a shelved closet, and small safe. (Although I seriously doubt if the safe is needed, money that was left on a shelf was still there at our return) A tiled walk-in shower with nearly instant hot water, and a large, private balconey with chairs and a million dollar view. There are few hotels anywhere that offer that close of ocean front proximity, for the rates they charge, and we gladly gave up the upper-end amenities, just to enjoy the view. We watched cruise ships pass and pelicans fish. We spent the nights with our sliding door open and listening to the sounds of the ocean.
My wife and i just returned from Caribe Blue Dec. 26. The hotel itself was very nice and well maintained, if unspectacular. I'm not sure, with all the costs involved in staying there, if its any cheaper than the all inclusives, but it certainly was great for divers. We were on the 4th floor and I would not recommend that too highly, although the room was clean, simple, and had a great view. The dive operation in the adjoining building is professional, flexible and friendly. I must say, we did prefer diving with some guides much more than others. The ability to shore-dive on our own time from the beach out front was a big reason we chose the hotel in the first place. It was very nice.
Caribe Blu-best kept secret in Cozumel!!!
Just returned from another great trip to Cozumel. First time staying at the Blu Caribe and we have found our new "home" in Cozumel. Rooms are newly renovated,clean, and have real mattresses! All rooms are ocean view and the price/night was less than $100. Close enough to town to walk (about 30 min) or a $3.50 taxi ride. Used Blue Angel for all of our diving and they were the best dive operators we have ever used. This place is Cozumel's best kept secret!!!
The divemasters are great and great care is taken to ensure divers of equivalent skill levels are grouped together on their small (max 10) fast boats. I am a Master Scuba Diver with 150 dives and my buddy has over 400 dives, and we were always allowed to stay as long as the air lasted, even when others had ended their dives. I walk with a cane and the staff was equally accomodating on land, helping me with my gear and doing whatever else was necessary to make me feel at home.
Stayed at Caribe Blu twice in March and April, 2004 and dived with Blue Angel dive shop located on the hotel grounds.
Best deal on the water in Cozumel
This hotel has recently changed hands and the new owners are remodeling. The rooms are large, clean and comfortably appointed, all have ocean views and large patios, in-room safes, bottled water dispensers, screen doors, air conditioners, plenty of hot water and benches for luggage and equipment. The beach/pool area is quiet and comfortable - booties are good for getting in the ocean as there is some coral there, but the snorkeling is good once you get in. The dive shop next door has a small restaurant on top where you can get a good breakfast or lunch for a very reasonable price. Walking distance to town (about 40 minutes if you stroll), and many dive boats will pick up at the hotel pier. The staff is friendly and helpful - kudos to Caribe Blu!
Just returned from four nights, five days at the Lorena (now the Caribe Blu), and diving with Blue Angel Dive Shop.
