Because of the hurricanes we postponed our August trip and went in
December.  We are a diving family, with daughters 11 (certified at 10) and
a 17 year old.  This trip we stayed at Villa Aldora.  The villa was hit by
the hurricane, but most repairs were done.  The accomodations were
wonderful, Kay and Greg phenomenal hosts.  We were even upgraded to an
ocean view room.  Aldora divers is an fantastic dive op.  They certified
both my girls.  My youngest is limited to 40 ft because of her age.  We
often had a boat to ourselves, and they would take us to our favorite
sites, even when we requested Yocab over and over.  They made suggestions
based on our interests (fish!) and limitations.  We saw eagle rays,
turtles, nurse sharks, baby spotted drums), splendid toadfish, and more
juvenile fish than we see in August.  They never rushed us, were always on
time, and catered to our needs.  Memo was in constant contact, making sure
we were happy.  We could dive as often as we wanted.  We can't wait to see
them again.
