We were treated very well.  Anna, with Aquacenter, arranged all of our
diving and other tours.  The dive operation was very professional and
safety conscious.  We did 5 dives in 2 days.  The guides and staff were
great.  We saw a mother whale with her calf as well as dolphins on the way
to Catalina Island for the first dive.  We saw large turtles mating at the
surface. The schools of fish were huge.  Anna picked us up at the resort
and took us back.  They stored and rinsed our gear.  We saw octopii? during
the day and white tipped reef sharks.  I thought it was amazing.  The boat
was not too crowded.  We had plenty of snacks and water.  We would have
liked to dive Nitrox but it was not available.  We did a zip line canopy
tour, white water rafting, sat in hot spring pools, and saw the Arenal
vocano erupt.  We ate mostly at Marie's and the food was delicious.  The
lunches on our other tours were also delicious, tilapia, chicken, beef were
some of the choices.  The country is beautiful.  The Flamingo Beach Resort
was nice.  The staff were wonderful, we were involved in a auto accident
and the staff were very supportive and helpful.  Our room was spacious and
clean.  There were small crabs that came in, we were on the ground floor,
but if you keep the AC on they stop visiting.  The resort grounds were
beautiful.  My husband died in a car accident while we were there and I was
severly injured.  They people of Costa Rica were wonderful.  They took very
good care of me and my neice.  They were very nice and helpful.  The resort
comped the two extra nights I had to stay there because I had to have
medical attention before I was able to travel.  TAM tours representatives
did every thing to assist us.  DAN was also very helpful with the
repatriation of my husband.  I will definelty go back to Costa Rica.  The
land and the people are wonderous.
