This was my fourth trip to the Bay Islands and second time staying in West
End. I have used Sueno del Mar Divers for both my stays in West End and
think they have the best facilities in the area. I spent some time checking
out the other operations in West End and I feel that Sueno offers the best
value. My second choice would be Native Sons. Sueno has their own dock with
the gear storage lockers, rinse tanks, and showers a few steps away from
the boat. All the other dive operations I checked out required you to carry
your gear from the shop across the road to the dock/boat. There is a full
time dockmaster to help with gear problems and a decent shop on site. All
the staff speaks English. Its quite a mixed bag of nationalities working
there; Filipino, Brit, Kiwi, Swiss, Welsh, Austrian and Hondurans. 

The diving and visibility was much better than November. The reefs have
seen some bleaching and the fish are not as plentiful as they were 5 years
ago. There is still an opportunity to see some pretty good sites. The reef
is extremely convenient to West End. Most boat rides are five minutes with
the longest being fifteen minutes. Dives are the usual 45 minute dives with
aluminum 80s. Most shops do two morning dives and one afternoon dives.
Because of the close proximity of the reef, the boats return to shore after
each dive for the surface interval.

Nightlife in West End is decent but most people tuck it in about 10 pm.
Sundowner is the local beach bar hangout that you can find most of the
ex-patriots and more lively visitors at happy hour each day. Dont miss
Sunday Quiz night, the most popular weekly event.

The Sea Breeze Inn is your basic West End hotel. The rooms are basic and
clean. You get a bed, a small TV with a couple channels, fan, small fridge
and a hot plate. Its convenient and cheap.
