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.
