Comments Dive guides were friendly and knowledgable. The fastboat option was worth the extra money. These boats were good condition and got you to the divesites fast. Fast enough that the lack of a sunshade on the boats was not a problem. I was not happy that they kept the boat in idle while picking us up. We ended all of our dives sucking in engine fumes. This company needs to pay better attention to o-rings on the tanks. I can't begin to count the number of first stage leaks we saw on the trip.

Plaza las glorias is begining to show its age. They keep up the lobby and exterior but the rooms are starting to show lots of neglect ie; broken tiles, rotting doors, masking tape over peep hole, A.C. that couldn't keep up. Restaraunt had a good breakfast but the lack of fans to move the air made it a heaven for mosquitoes in the eavening. we had a $60 steak dinner and the mosquitoes ate better than we did. No other restaraunt we ate at had this problem.
