For my birthday, I treated myself and family to one of my favorite dive
spots.  This was my sixth trip to San Sal which was documented by a piece
of painted driftwood in the bar.  This island has the most beautiful water
in the world.  The diving was spectacular as always.  Every dive at San Sal
is special and unique. Unreal cuts and chimneys with spectacular
visibility.  These dive sites will stay in your mind forever. Sharks
(Hammers), turtles, large friendly groupers and lion fish were with us on
every dive.  The dive boats and guides were top notch.  The guides left you
alone to do your thing while at the same time keeping an eye out for any
novice who needed help getting comfortable. The boats were perfect size,
open with lots of shade. The resort was like it always has been, a diving
dude ranch. The rooms were cold with satellite TV and a fridge. The food
was good but nothing gourmet. The Driftwood Bar has been a favorite of
divers for 20 years. The best thing I can say about Riding Rock is their
friendly staff.  Everyone was wonderful. I've been there six times and I am
planning on returning again and again.
