Comments Werner looks after you, from the cold one on arriving at the airport, tank swapping, gear rinsing, a rum and coke on departing to lots of entertaining tales. Usual profile is a 45 min guided tour then stay in the vicinity of the boat until you are ready to surface, I had several 75 min dives. Dives along the coast ... jump in, come up when ready, we will find you. Great soft corals, good soft corals, not a large number of fish except at two shallow sites at the top of the island. One spotted eagle ray at a wall dive and a pair of juveniles at a marina used for the surface interval ... Werner also feeds you well. I will go again but it is not at the top of my list of repeats.
Isleno, Aquarium, Marazul (all Decameron), in that order, would be better resorts being closer to the dive shop but Werner does cover travel to and from the shop.
