Comments The dive operation at blue xt sea diving was first rate. We had Arturo for our first divemaster and he was incredible at finding macro life. We were a little upset at first when we switched over to Pedro Pablo because we had become used to Arturo. We loved Pedro as well! He was great at finding Pelagics and the Splendid Toadfish. My wife asked for some Eagle Rays and Pedro delivered two of them on the next dive. We feel very lucky to have had two such capable divemasters. Adan and Mago were both excellent boat captains. Adan was especially attentive. My wife left a dry bag on the boat and Adan drove it over to us and was in the lobby as we were headed to a taxi to go get it!

Fiesta Americana is a fine resort. The food is decent but got old for dinner after 2 to 3 nights and we went to town thereafter. Our favorite
place is Primas.

The rooms at FA are clean and nice enough. The bed might as well be a wooden board. Hard, hard, hard!
