We booked a week in Cozumel, and then scrambled to find a dive operation.
Our group was comprised of four newly certified divers therefore we were extremely pleased to learn Chucho Divers limits the size of the dive groups. The core of our group (two couples) did thirteen dives in five days. A pair of divers were added to our Days Four and Five dives to round out our group (it was clear they were repeat customers).
As for Chucho, what can you say about the best Dive Master in Cozumel? (Okay, that is my opinion); he did, however, take one of our less confident divers by the hand, acting as a personal coach and a private guide, all the while keeping an expert eye out for the rest of our group.
Chucho Divers coordinated our pickup at the pier of our hotel which was really cool and convenient (just another way Chucho made you feel special). In addition, at the end of Day One, we were all very happy to discover that we could leave our gear on board for the next day's dives where it would be rinsed, stored, and prepared for the next day, allowing us to avoid lugging it all back to our hotel rooms each day.
We had such a great time and are now suffering from post dive depression.

"The search is over. Done. We’ve found it. What we heard is true. Chucho Divers has got to be the best dive operator in the world! My wife and I decided to give them a try after my stepbrother, Herb, advised us that we’d be crazy to dive with anyone else. I thought he was going a little overboard (no pun intended), but he was right.
"I’ve been diving since 1971, so nobody can tell me I haven’t been around enough to know. There are dive operators - and there are dive operators. No dive outfit in all my years of diving has come close to the service and professionalism of Chucho Divers. Besides being a great outfit, they’re just plain fun. In three days, my wife and I did six daytime and one night dive with Chucho’s. It was the finest dive trip of my life."
"My first salt water dive was with Chucho Divers. My husband and I had planned on being buddies, but I started having trouble right away. My new, thicker wetsuit, plus the extra buoyancy of the saltwater, caused me to have difficulty descending. Chucho was right there. He pulled out an extra weight from somewhere and fastened it to my tank. Then he actually helped me descend by gently pulling me down. He constantly exchanged “Okay” signals with me, and kept an eye on my dive computer and air - as well as his own. He must have seen I was a little nervous, because he stayed right with me through the whole dive. And he was my buddy for all our dives afterward. My husband was relieved to have the new arrangement since it gave him the chance to relax and enjoy his dives more, and not to have to worry so much about me. He just followed along on the other side of me. Talk about security!"
"Boo hoo, how did that week fly by so quickly?!?!? Pat and I enjoyed every minute, soon as we got on that boat it only took about 2 minutes for all the work stress to drain. We were so impressed with the whole operation- Chucho is an excellent divemaster, and just a really nice, nice person! We were telling the family that he's definitely the one for all future diving in Cozumel. One hour on every tank, that was AWESOME."

"Best dive trip ever. Thanks to Chucho, he took time to point out great photo ops and video. Splendid toad fish incredible. Many fond memories. Thank you Chucho. Why would anyone dive with some one else, full valet diving, the best."

"So here you are, on vacation. Possibly your first dive in the ocean or possibly your 500th plus dive. Diving with Chucho does not really matter. What matters is this....If you want personalized service, no "cattle boat" diving, the best guided tour of the islands reefs and a text book scenario of what you read in all of the books and magazines of what a dive operator should be, be prepared to become spoiled and Dive with Chucho Divers.”
