This was my 2nd trip with Aldora.  1st was in 2003.  You can see that there
was damage to the reefs from Wilma & the vis was not as clear.  However
it was still great diving.  Aldora is the best operation I have yet to
encounter.  Mateo the DM was fantastic.  We went with 2 friends who are
beginers.  After the 1st day Mateo saw that they needed extra help so he
brought along a DM in training to give thoes 2 one on one help.  There was
only the 4 of us on the boat with the e DM's.  At no time during the 2
weeks diving with them did the boat have more than 6 customers.  Tanks were
120 steel filled to a minimum of 3500PSI.  All dives were atleast 65
minutes and some as long as 90.
The villa's are managed by Greg & Kay whom were extremly helpful.  They
met us at the airport and helped us get organized, gave us lifts into town
which was only about a 3 minute ride.  You could walk it in about 20
minutes.  On calm days the boat would pick you up at the villas and on
rough days they would hire a cab to take you to the main pier.  The overall
experience was 1st class all the way.  You cannot go wrong with Aldora.
