Comments The Wyndham Aura is all that you could ask for in all-inclusive, Great beach, incredible rooms, perfect service.

Living Underwater is the best, Paperwork is done before you leave home, once there Jeremy contacts you the night before your first dive to make sure that nothing has changed and set up the pick-up time in the morning.
We started at 7:30 each morning and were back to our hotel ordering lunch by noon.
Surface int was on a beautiful beach with water and snacks provided.
We had two brand new divers with us and Jeremy went above and beyond helping them develop their skills while the rest of us enjoyed incredible dives. Safety is always Jeremy's first concern. We never suffered shortened dives due to inexperienced divers.
Palancar Brick, gardens, and horseshoe were unbeleivible as was Santa Rosa wall.
Jeremy uses Steel 120s so we all maxed out our bottom time with one dive at 71 minutes (Nitrox).
Jeremy is very skilled at pointing out the less noticed even coaxing out a very shy Toadfish for photos.
A 10 foot wide Spotted Eagle ray and three sharks. (Hard to say what kind they were, we were at 115 ft off of Palancar horseshoe and they were at least 160 or deeper) It made the trip complete.

Thanks Jeremy for an incredible trip,
We will always call you first.
