I know we are not on their food chain, but was wondering what the best thing to do would be if you ever came across one? Should you ignore it, freeze, swim away slowly, or run for your life?
I am asking this because I saw a picture of one that came within 50 yards of someone in front of the Barcelo Resort, just south of Playa.
I waited too long while trying to find the best deal to Cozumel during the time that I had available, and all the flights filled up on me. So I will be flying into Cancun and staying at the Barcelo Colonial this weekend instead. The bus to Playa-ferry to Coz takes too much time for the short weekend trips.
I am asking this question on the Coz forum because there are many more divers and snorkelers over here who might have encountered one. Here is a link to the website where I found the picture. Just scroll down to the croc pic.
