Good call, Rafter! I am leaving Cozumel today, after being here for a month and diving my brains out. Cozumel has great dives for new divers and experienced ones, too. You have to be willing to give up some control and drift, and like any other new environment, listen to the briefings to know how to deal with the elements that are new. The higher your comfort level in the water, the better it's going to be.
Definitely consider going ahead and doing your advanced cert here. Good experience, dedicated divemaster, lots of local conditions/strategies information...
Once you are in, there's so much to see that your second nature takes over the diving portion while your conscious mind is enthralled with the formations and wildlife (in the water, too! hee hee)
When you get here, tell the turtles and fish hello for me. Don't know if they're going to miss me as much as I am going to miss them!
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
