Some of the best corals and sponges to be seen in the carribbean, very
healty reefs.  Mostly small fish, local fishermen have emptied the reef of
large fish.  DR has friendly people and attacts Europeans.  Most
reasonalble place to stay, beer $1 and dinner usually $5 to $15.  Nice
place for a change but not a Bonaire.  For the most part clean restaurants
and hotels like El Candil two blocks off beach very reasonalbe with good
service including pick up at airport.  Treasure divers is an average
operation, friendly staff.  Boat is slow but reliable. Not to many divers
during April.  Safe operation overall.  Last day had 6 to 8 ft seas and the
anchor line broke while underwater, lucky the captain could retrieve the
line that broke on the surface. A surprise at the end, they wanted cash, no
credit cards.  Spent part of the afternoon in a DR bank getting cash. Glad
we went but not sure I would return unless the fish population increases.
