Hi. My husband & I have recently qualified as PADI open water scuba divers whilst we were on vacation in Turks & Caicos in April 2017, & we are coming to Playa del Carmen for a week from 11th -18th June & we would love to get a couple of dives in Cozumel as we've been told by several other divers that it's amazing. Could you just answer a couple of questions for me please? 1) What is the ratio of instructors to divers ? 2) What is the price of hiring the diving gear? Many thanks in advance for your help. Regards Kerry
