We took some great shots, especially of all the bullsharks who just ignored
us.  The visibility is a bit low, but get close to your subject to avoid
back scatter

We fell in love with Costa Rica.  Both under and above the water it's
beautiful, we've even changed our plans and are getting ready to move back
to Costa Rica and start our own dive operation.
Most dive operations are not to well developed and I think there are great
possiblities for us!
We had a great dive experience with Rich Coast diving and had lots of fun
with the staff.  We dove with almost all operations in Coco, but this one
is by far the better one!!!
