We went for whale sharks but saw none.  There were a number of disappointed
people, some who had been there previous year and hadn't seen any that year
either.  However, we did meet a couple of ladies who had seen them four
years in a row, hoping to make it five.

Otherwise diving was good, not great.  Didn't see much in the way of big
stuff - no sharks, only a couple of turtles and eagle rays.  Did see lots
of green moray eels, some out and about.  Highlight were Sea Horses -
White, Orange, and Black.  Our Divemaster Annette was excellent at finding
the small stuff - flatworms, nudibranchs, shrimp, etc.  Dive staff and boat
captain were great.  

Resort was very nice, great scenic location, staff and service were
excellent.  Accomodations were comfortable - air conditioning + ceiling
fan, comfortable bed, hammocks and chairs on deck where we had beautiful
sunsets.  Food was buffet style, not gourmet but satisfactory.  Big
downside was the abundance of bugs - nothing seemed to work for us and
others, similar to other trips we've taken to Central America.  

Wouldn't recommend going during Easter Week as we did - influx of natives
returning for big family week but stress on island's utilities.  All in
all, an enjoyable week - maybe some day we'll roll the dice again and head
back for whale sharks.
