Comments Best Western Juan Dolio Metro Hotel excellent. All inclusive package for $40. day, safe water system throughout hotel complex. Neptuno horrible dive operation. Very unsafe practices. We were put in dangerous situations daily. They were not providing adequate safety for situations as they aroze. Cave diving beautiful but not set up for safety. No lines in places, bad visibility. Boats not adequate for long trips in ocean. Engine problems. Inexperience with conditions, poor judgement. No safety precautions. We had to insist they call for help. Diving only fair in the Juan Dolio area, Boca Chica has some very nice dive sights . Get on the bus and in 5 minutes your in Boca Chica to dive. Catalina Island diving is excellent. Stay in that area if possible to save traveling. Santa Domingo is a very nice city to visit. The tour of the historical city is wonderful. The country is very nice and we were impressed with the people there.
