Comments The Dive Safari Operation was very good worked to provide a good time and safe dive for each of its customers. The boat was not overcrowded and the owner was more than helpfull when I needed some assistance with my computer which malfunctioned. They provided a freshwater bucket for the camera which worked for me but the layout of the boat does not have a flat dry table to simplify changing film between dives. I actually changed film only between dive trips. There prices are reasonable and for $20 dollars extra, you can do a third dive in the afternoon.
They had rinsing facilities for equipment in the shop along with a place to hang wetsuit and leave gear from day to day.
I stayed at the Bahia Hotel which is only a block away.
Another good Hotel option is the Mexicana Hotel on the same block.
These hotels are downtown and convenient for shopping, dining, and to take excursions.
