Wonderful dive sites that have healthy corals, lots of fish, and more
variety of sea life than any other place I have been. It is a long way to
go from the USA, but well worth it. I have been to this same resort in
2004, 2006, 2007, 2008 as well as this 2009 trip. I plan to go again in

This year the number of people staying at the resort was significantly
fewer than each of my prior trips. All five of my trips have been in July
and August, so the decline was not seasional, but most likly doe to the
weak world economy.
Please see my earlier Undercurrent reviews for additional information.
