If the summer-vacation bug is starting to bite you, here are a few suggestions for places to consider for your next dive trips, based on other Undercurrent readers' reports.

Condos on Little Cayman. While my favorite resort in Little Cayman has forever been Pirates Point (it's celebrating its 30th anniversary this year), many divers prefer condos, so I'll call your attention to the privacy of the oceanfront Paradise Villas, where you can gaze at the ocean, cook in, or eat next door at the Hungry Iguana restaurant (or walk to Pirates Point). Michael T. Hynan (Graftin, WI) says, "My wife and I made our 11th trip to Little Cayman in April, staying at Paradise Villas. Conch Club Divers owner Bill runs a solid operation. I turned 68 and told Bill, who just turned 70, that I appreciated diving with an older captain/ divemaster, as I knew I would not get discriminated against for my age.

Units have new air-conditioning systems, beds had new frames with headboards, and new large dressers were a plus. Food and service at the Hungry Iguana restaurant continue to be very good." A week with six days of diving runs in the neighborhood of $1,500 per person, double occupancy. ( www.paradisevillas.com ; www.conchclubdivers.com )

[Note from Ben: hmm, maybe a nighttime problem for aging bladders.] There is only one grocery store on the island, about a 20-minute walk." ( www.conchclubcondos.com )...
