Dive Planacar a great dive operation.  Even though we took our own
equipment the rental equipment at Dive Planacar was top notch, I would say
less than a year old and well maintained.  The boats were clean, large and
well equiped.  O2 on every boat, excellent dive masters and captain.  Water
before the dive and all you could drink after.  Short run to reef
locations, wall dives, tunnels and small caves.  Excellent experience.

Allegro resort was just OK.  Food was just OK in buffet, breakfast the best
meal.  Rooms varied from horrible to very nice.  Staff working hard to keep
place up.  Entertainment OK.  For diving dollar good value, but .....  the
dive operation more than made up for any resort short comings.  Pools and
beach were excellent!  We had a ball!
