Aldora remains a top quality operator  -- professional, safety conscious,
knowledgable and always ready to accomodate their divers.  Site selection
was totally up to the divers on board that day.  Really enjoyed diving with
the 120 cu. ft. HP steel tanks, with all dives about an hour and leisurely
surface intervals back on the beach. DMs (Jorge, Omar, Bill, Mateo &
Memo) were universally excellent and gave good briefings. Watched carefully
over less experienced divers on the boat. Bill is the best I've encountered
at finding small stuff and carries a magnifying glass to assist.  The Bahia
Hotel is relatively small & plainly furnished, but convenient to
downtown right on the water front 2 blocks south of the town plaza, quiet,
squeaky clean and a great bargain at $50/night.  Rooms have A/C, TV,
phones, & refrigerators and there's free internet access in the lobby
