I would suggest a 5 or 7 mm wetsuit or if you are wearing a 3 mm make sure
you have a hood and gloves. It was a little difficult getting back into the
boat (small boats with only 6 divers) but the divemaster and boat captain
were very helpful. We saw a lot more than we expected and were pleasantly
surprised. We were also happy that all dive gear (minus computer) was
included in the price. Only doing one day of diving, we didn't bring our
gear expect for computer. Lots of starfish and ran into a school of Spotted
Eagle Rays. I would also stay in one of the two nearby towns next time. The
food in town was delicous and very affordable and it was very safe to
explore. We stayed at the Las Brisas on the western side of Tangolunda Bay.
The resort was very spread out and there was a lot of people
with bad knees...beware. The hotel provided 24-hour shuttle service in
oversized golf carts.
