Due to the fact that all dives were drift dives, we had to stay within
close sight of the DM and surface with him.  There were, however, two DMs
in the H20 to start, so the early finishers could surface with one, and the
late finishers could surface later.

El Cantil:  A new, very nice condo complex with a pool and artificial beach
on the water. A dock for the dive op to pick you up. Right across the
street from the best grocery store.  Free parking in secure garage under
building.  A great place to stay.  2, 3, 4 bedroom units, individually

Blue XTSea:  A superb dive op.  Great DM's, friendly, fun, and informative.
 Small boats mean small groups -- 5 or six divers per boat, with 2 DMs in
the water.  Safety and respect for the reefs and creatures emphasized.  But
plenty of freedom to dive your own profile and no rush to finish up the
dive.  Aluminium 63's available on request for short folks who don't gulp
air, like me :-)  Good quality rental gear.  Surface intervals at a beach. 
Snacks served on board or you can buy your own on the beach.
