E. COZUMEL CHECKLIST:

  1. Passport
    • Required for all travelers
    • Must not expire for at least 6 months
    • Copies provided – see #6 above
  2. Travel Reminders
    • CELL PHONES - Check into adding a temporary international roaming plan to any cell phones you are taking. Scouts – cell phones can work in Mexico but rates may be huge without a special plan. Best advice, leave it at home. We will have computer access if you want to upload to Facebook.
    • CHARGE CARDS - Adults – we always like to have some charge card backup! If you will be brining a charge card to Mexico, it is good to call and let them know your travel plans and dates. This is especially true if you get tapped for dinner bill. I'll have charge cards for our use but backups are always good if there are problems with them.
  3. Travel AND Dive Insurance
    • Our bookings and fees are not refundable. The decision on travel insurance is up to each Scout's family. It is not part of the troop trip.
    • Our biggest challenge is always the fact that it is hurricane season.
    • Diver Alert Network provides both Dive Insurance and Travel Insurance.
      • Dive Insurance - coverage for dive related injuries and medical transportation services
      • Travel Insurance - various coverage levels affect the premium
      • BOTH of these insurance plans are on an individual basis. They are encouraged, but NOT part of the trip costs!
      • When purchasing trip insurance on the DAN Website, the basic price for airfare, scuba dive rates and hotel is $1300.
