Accommodation for Diving vacation in the Yucatan/Cabo?Hi, I'm solo traveler from India to Mexico on a dive vacation 26 April to 11 May, 2012. I'm stuck on deciding where and how to stay to have the best possible time.
1. 26 Apr - 02 May: I'm tending to favour Cancun as there's plenty in the same area: Cozumel, Riviera Maya, Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen to name a few. What's overwhelming is the sheer number of dive spots that are listed; where would be the best place to stay in terms of ease of moving around? I'm thinking real basic: leave in the morning and get back in the night. I'm not going for the party so i don't mind staying out of the city. Diving and whale sharks are top priority on my list but i would also like to have a couple of days for moving around to Mayan ruins and exploring the country's history.
2. 02 May - 10 May: Los Cabo. I am trying to get on a live aboard for this period of time but if there are good accessible options on land, i'd love to take 'em.
Appreciate any advice you guys have. Any additional options i ought to explore would also be handy!

3@55vineyard: yeah, i couldn't help the timing, its all the time i could get off ......... i'll try my luck nevertheless; is there any other big fish dive one could do? Would going south help spot the whale sharks in early May?

4The top dive sites in the yucatan are in cozumel. Also the cenotes are amazing dives as well. Try staying in playa for easy diving access and tank-ha dive shop has a direct boat to the cozumel dive sites right from the beach. Then you dont have to take the ferry over. Happy diving !
