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.
