Dive Blue is a good operation. They had a small boat, Raul was a good, fun,
mellow and flexible divemaster. He was unobtrusive and let us do our thing,
checking in to make sure everything was ok and pointing out fish from time
to time, but also didn't go out of his way to find marine life. From 10 or
so divers in Mexico, it doesn't seem that operations here conduct extensive
dive pre-briefs or wrap ups identifying dive time, marine life, etc. 

We went to Santa Rosa wall, which was beautiful - great swimthroughs, reef
was in good condition, decent fish. Not a lot of big fish. 

We stayed at the Suites Bahia, which is a pretty good budget place with a
great location (right on the beach and next to the docks). Great breakfast
included (in another hotel around the corner).
