Comments  
The reefs and Aldora Divers were generally as good as we have experienced
on past trips.  Fiesta Mexicana had nice rooms, but is too far from San
Miguel to allow cheap trips there for sightseeing and meals.  Mult. cab
rides get expensive!  We saw many lionfish on each dive, which we did not
see one year before.  Our divemasters stopped frequently to kill them,
slowing the whole group down.  
A Caribbean-wide policy (fat chance) should be established for dealing with
lionfish, since they are becoming a nuisance of huge proportions.
