Cozumel Packages

Unless you are going to need more than one bedroom and decide to go the house rental route, one of the least expensive ways to book a dive trip to Cozumel is through a wholesaler who will sell you a package of air, hotel and possibly diving all for a single price. You may or may not find yourself flying on a charter but often times, your entire total package price will end up very close to what the commercial air fare alone would have cost you. Note that the following list of dive oriented wholesalers list hotels and dive operators that are frequently packaged together. However, other combinations are available from most tour operators as are non-diver packages.

If you do decide to go the package trip route and include diving in your package, make sure you understand what type of boat your dive trips are booked on. Most will be on the larger “slow” boats. If it’s what you want, that’s fine but many divers in Cozumel prefer the faster small boats. Upgrades to the fast boats are usually available at a slightly higher cost. Note that the following list of dive oriented wholesalers list hotels and dive operators that are frequently packaged together.

Another option that usually does not include diving as a part of the package is going with a company that packages hotel with air; like the discounted offer from Priceline linked here:  Save up to $500 on Mexico vacation packages from $471 pp!

Companies like Vacation Express, Apple and Funjet operate from all over the country and usually offer a reasonably good price and sometimes offer really good last minute deals on air (frequently charter flights) with hotel. You can also consider buying “air only” from these services and try to negotiate your own deal with a hotel or make a house reservation.

As noted in the House rental section, many of the companies that rent property also offer packages that can include any or all of the house rental fee, diving, food & drink and auto rental. While it doesn’t include airfare, most are willing to tailor a package to whichever of these services that you might want to include.
