Comments It was a 15 minute flight in a small plane to get to the resort and a 90 minute ride in a large comfortable boat going back to Belize City. The rooms were very nice with a good bed and plenty of hot water. There was a screened poarch which was handy.
The food was good and the grilled fish was outstanding. Belikins were cold and only $3.
There were a good number and variety of fish. Spotted Eagle Ray, Tarpon, Midnight Parrotfish, Spotted Drum, Goldspotted Eel, White Spotted Toadfish,and all of the usual tropicals.
All in all this was the best dive trip I have been on in a long time and I am going back.
