There have been some changes in personnel at Living Underwater - Oracio is
gone.  Jeremy is now in charge and he is doing a great job.  The
determination to give divers what they want, rather than what is convenient
for the dive operator, is what makes Living Underwater a real jewel.  We
abandoned another dive operation that we had been diving with for years
when they stopped focusing on where we wanted to dive and took us to the
same old dive sites over and over again.  Instead of deciding where the
dive was going and imposing it on divers, Jeremy let us decide, within the
limitations of our abilities, where we should dive.  As a result, we were
able to dive sites that I havent been to in years, including Barracuda. 
Jeremy was also flexible about the time that we started diving so that a
few days, he picked up divers at 6:30 am (dont panic, it was by
consensus). There are a lot less folks out diving at 6:30 than just a few
hours later!  I also did some less challenging dives with my 12 year old
son.  It was a good mix of sites including Punta Sur, Santa Rosa Wall, San
Francisco Wall, Delilah, and Punta Francesca.  The 120 and 95 steel tanks
make all the difference  minimum time down (excluding Barracuda) was 72
  We also discovered a new restaurant - La Lobsteria, on Avenida 5 Sur at
Calle 7.  As the name implies, they had lobster which they prepare with
several sauces or just plain old broiled with butter.  There was also
pasta, fish, chicken, etc.  The service was charming and the proprietor
genuinely gracious.
