Well, that's an interesting turn! Not too shabby, Antonio. Still hosting the Sunset Cruise???

But remember, folks, he's still an expert re the El Coz and can now help those who want to know about Coz's premier resort.

Claude - It's still OK to leave the stuff at Ocean Tours if you can't get over to Cruz -- just tell the manager what it's for. Thanks! - Deb

He obviously made a move up the ladder, he did a great job at the El Coz. I'm glad you posted that because, even though we're not staying there, in a few weeks we were going to drop by the El Coz to say Hi, so now we'll just stop by the Presidente.

Just spoke with Antonio to confirm fishing trips with Ocean Tours next week and he is still doing the same thing, but from a different location. You kind of caught me off guard with that one!! Sorry for the people that like to visit him at the El Coz, though.

I guess the cat's out of the bag now...

As Debbie mentioned I'm still taking care of emails and internet reservations for Ocean Tours, I am also doing emails and reservations for Scuba Du, and my office is now at El Presidente, it's amazing the difference 2 stars make, and yeah Hobie, it sure is a move up. At El Coz we still have Jose my assistant, and the new guy is Mauricio, I'm in constant contact with them and will continue to work for Ocean Tours and the guys at the dive shop there.

Enjoy Cozumel!!!

Well, I knew that, but was waiting for Antonio to announce it in his own time. (not to be rude to Cdill)

Antonio, I missed having you there and talking to you! I still REALLY am thankful for your advice last year that you gave me on "Dean." The last thing we needed was to be stuck with a sick husband and 2 little kids. I know the hurricane didn't hit Coz, but it VERY well could have and that's what matters. "You can't second guess Mother Nature."

I wish the very BEST for you at the Presidente and maybe we will meet again. We sure can't afford those prices.....we like more trips and LESS STARS. ha-ha

You're great, Antonio!

Congrats, Antonio. We'll stop by and check out your new digs, we've always meant to check out the El Presidente but have never gotten around to it. We'll be doing a lot of sailing with Cozumel Sailing but might just have to make time for your sunset cruise as well and can book it when we stop by.

As were others, I was also waiting for Antonio to announce his move. I was fortunate enough to meet up with Antonio while down there a couple of weeks ago when we went to Presidente for our dive. Same guy, same wit and same character. Just a change of scenery :) íCongrats amigo!

Claude, thanks for taking down supplies. Had a great time when we delivered ours to Cruz a couple of weeks ago. Just had to fill those empty bags with Cava Antiqua bottles for the trip back home :) The gals were simply wonderful and take a great picture :)

Antonio - how long have you worked at El Coz? I ask b/c I stayed there in 1998 or 1999 for Spring Break and there was one "host" there that was great! He was so cute, too! He looked like a Mexican Brad Pitt and he was crazy about my friend and flirted with her relentlessly. Do you happen to know who I am speaking of? Good but not great English....very friendly and showed us around town and escorted us everywhere. Worked for the hotel or maybe for the travel company....
