[None]THE VILLA IS STUNNING, YOU CAN SEE THE SOUTHERN CROSS FRAMED IN THE
FRENCH DOORS OF YOUR BEDROOM. INSTRUCTOR,DENNIS MIDENCE AND DIVEMASTER,
CARLOS ARE INCREDIBLE. VERY HELPFUL AND TAILOR ALL DIVES TO YOUR EXPERIENCE
AND COMFORT. WE HAD THE WHOLE VILLA TO OURSELVES COMPLETE WITH COOK,
CHAMBERMAID AND THE DIVE CREW. NEED TO BE AWARE SHORT CONNECTION TIMES AT
G.W. BUSH AIRPORT IN HOUSTON, CAUSED US TO MISS CONNECTION TO HONDURAS.
WOULD RECCOMEND COMING IN NIGHT BEFORE TO HOUSTON TO MAKE SURE YOU MAKE
EARLY CONNECTION TO SAN PEDRO SULAS.
SCHEDULE IS TWO TANK DIVES A DAY, TIME DEPENDS ON YOUR SCHEDULE. ONE NIGHT
DIVE.  THE STAFF WAS WONDERFUL, FOOD SOMEWHAT OK, BUT GOOD. IF YOU WANT ONE
ON ONE SERVICE, BEAUTIFUL REEFS, LOTS OF SWIM THROUGHS. DIVES TO 135 AT THE
PINNACLES, AND THE JADO TRADER AT 110, A SUNKEN FREIGHTER. WE SAW ALL KINDS
OF FISH, PARROT, WRASSE, MORAYS, TURTLE, GRASS EELS, NURSE SHARKS, TO NAME
A FEW. WATER TO WARM FOR PELAGICS. WE WERE TOLD THIS UP FRONT BY JOHN
HESSBURG OF U.S. DIVE TRAVEL. HE GAVE EXCELLENT SERVICE AND WAS VERY
HELPFUL IN GETTING CONNECTION TO LA CEIBE AND ONTO GUANAJA AFTER MISSED
FIRST FLIGHT TO SAN PEDRO SULAS. VALUE FOR THE MONEY AND SERVICE WAS MORE
THAN WE COULD HAVE HOPED FOR.  JOHN AND SHARON BRANDON
