FROM PAST REVIEWS I EXPECTED GOOD DIVING. I DONT KNOW WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM
?EL NINO BUT THERE WERE MINIMAL FISH AND CORALS WERE POOR.THE PEOPLE AT
JINETES DE OSA WERE VERY NICE AND PRICES WERE REASONABLE. SINCE THE DIVING
WAS POOR I DID SEVERAL EXTRA LAND EXPEDITIONS AND THESE WERE ALL GREAT. SAW
LOTS OF BIRDS,ANIMALS AND VERY INTERESTING BUGS. THESE TRIPS ARE HIGHLY
RECOMMENDED.THE TRIP TO CANO ISLAND WASAT LEAST 45 MINUTES AND SOMETIMES
ROUGH. BASIC LUNCH AFTER DIVING. NOTE ONLY CERTAIN TYPE OF CELL PHONE WORKS
IN COSTA RICA ALL COMMUNICATION FROM DRAKE BAY BY E-MAIL FROM CORCOVADO
EXPEDITIONS. THEY BOOK INTERESTING TRIPS TO RAIN FOREST AND ARE VERY NICE
AND FAIR PEOPLE.
