The diving operation was excellent.  There were three in our party, and
often we were the only ones on the boat.  Rafael, the divemaster, was with
us every day.  He was safety-conscious and careful.  He made sure we had a
good time and went out of his way to point out underwater sights.  Ramon,
the boat driver, was watchful and attentive.  Dolphin Divers took good care
of our gear and made the diving a pleasure.  I expected the cold water, and
we borrowed hoods from the dive shop.  I didn't expect the poor visibility,
but the trade-off was  diving with large critters.  Accommodations at The
Iguana Inn were fantastic.  They only have four rooms which are actually
little casitas on the property.  It is spotlessly clean, and Mike, Julie
and their dog Zoe make their guests feel particularly welcome.  We had a
small kitchen where we made breakfast and snacks.  Rafael recommended
"Super Burro" restaurant which had delicious food and amazingly
low prices.  The patio at the Iguana Inn has a fountain and a barbecue
grill for guests.  If we return, I would not consider staying anywhere else
or diving with anyone else.
