Comments Wife is ready to go back. She did two adventure dives and I did two Special Cert dives to complete my PADI Master Diver. They really weren't set up to do training though they advertise it. After a little insistance they accomodated me to great satisfaction. That is what makes this place great. Normally a no kids resort, during our spring break they were allowed to our disappointment - if I wanted to play with grand kids I would have brought my own. Boat ride from Belize is good 1.5 hours -ours was three hours going out as one motor was about to die and blowing black smoke. That was really the only bad experience. Blue hole was a disappointment. I like the reefs at Cozumel better. The plus of this place is the peace and quiet (no TV, cells) and the hosts. We were only there for half a week and missed the night dive and couple of spots I would have loved to have dived.
