Vicki, as a mother of 2 divers (now somewhat older than your daughter), and a long-time diver myself, I'd just add to Bruce's sage advice by reminding you to research the credentials & reputation of whichever local dive operator you find to use for your daughter in either Cancun or Cozumel. You want to be sure they are using well-maintained equipment, and whatever boat they use has appropriate safety gear. There are a lot of dive operators who can promise a good time; but you obviously want your daughter to be safe and to feel comfortable with the instructor(s) who will be taking her for her open water dives. These days you can get a lot of information on-line (on trip advisor and various scuba boards) about other folks' experience with whichever dive shop you are considering, in addition to contacting NAUI for referral information. I agree with Bruce that it would be better for her to stick with the NAUI program she's started.
It's been several years since the last time we were diving in either Cancun or Cozumel, but I do remember that the level of professionalism & attention to safety issues varied considerably from one dive operator to another. So see if you can get some recommendations to contact & research well before you head down there.
But you've probably already thought about all this and done your homework.....and I hope you'll be telling us more about your daughter's wonderful diving after you all enjoy your vacation!
Have a great trip!
