Comments Needed to be more specific about dive schedule. We setup for 6 1 tank dives and had a bit of trouble changing to 2 tank dives. Dive shop was very busy the week we were there. Toucan is a very well run operation. The stories about Toucan not being organized we found to be false. Hotel staff and service were very good. Resturant service is very very slow in the evening. Breakfast room very well run.Lunch service slow but acceptable. We would return to Plaza Resrt without concern and recommend using Toucan Diving for boat dives. The only dive not recommended is salt pier. Sea life good but water very cloudy and has been at this site for past 2 months.
