Comments First trip since Hurricane Wilma last year. Shallow reefs are in terrible shape. Most soft coral gone and consequent lack of much marine life. Layer of sand smothering reef. Deeper reefs down south are OK. Go somewhere else and give it some time to grow back. International pier is gone! Land based facilities in great shape, rebuilt quickly. Lot's of boat people (cruise ships), up to 5 at a time. Get a jeep and cruise around. Get away from the shore front and explore for good places to eat. I hate resorts. I booked myself and companion at the Colonial downtown San Miguel. Its cheap and basic. What else do you need? Blue Studio is a fine shop and Manuel Ortiz treated us well. Somewhat more expensive than others but more flexible in arrrangements. Marine park closed one whole day due to chopper water. I rented tanks (from the local air fill facility for less than a $1 per tank!!). Dove the other side of Coz. Long surface swims and you never know what you'll get. The dirt road to the north side on the other side of the island is closed!! How sad. Really good shores dives up there.
