Luckily, the bus station was small and easy to navigate! I bought a ticket (only MX38 this time - £1.75) for the next bus to Tulum - leaving in 15mins! Or so the timetable went.

They were ecstatic and it made me yern for my jump ...

... on the ferry landed up chatting to a group of Californians who actually turned out to be diving with the same company as I was. We arrived in Cozumel and found our operator. We were doing a two tank dive and going to dive the famous Santa Rosa Wall and a dive called Tormentos.

The Santa Rosa wall has magnificent corals and swim throughs. I managed to see a huge turtle and a mass of barracuda really close up. The second dive was shallower and even ...
