[None]Anthony's Key is organized and efficient. Food was excellent, and
Chilean wine ( cost extra) satisfactory . Weather in September is
hot/humid, so an air conditioned cabin is worth the extra cost. The resort
has thouhgt of about everything to accommodate divers, including lockers
adjacent to the dive boats. The reefs are colorful/healthy and fish life is
abundant, but the biggest thing I saw were Hawksbill turtles and Black
Grouper. There were also a few Nurse sharks.The walls are beautiful, with
Mary's Place ( a funnel-like journey up form a 125 ft. starting depth)
memorable. For $100 you can watch a reef shark feeding , but I skipped this
as I have seen a number of these.The BIG DOWNSIDE: sand fleas ("no see
ums") which bite mercilessly ( I had over 50 bites after 7 days at
resort). This despite practically immersing myself in 98%DEET. There are
also mosquitos, but not as bad. So come armed with DEET and - for itching-
Benadryl. Some guests complained of red ants in their cabins , and also
claimed the resort's management did not seem very concerned re this
("here is a can of Raid you can spray your room with" per one
guest). I had no ants in my room. Overall, this resort offers a comfortabe
dive experience at a great price. Since Mexico has become increasingly
violent, this resort in my opinion offers as good a value as I have
encountered in over 700 logged dives since 1997.
