UW Photo Comments no accomadations for uwp... except ice chest in boat and water tank and hose at village. hard on cameras etc. not much to take pictures of. micro was good and lots of eels. California diving with some tropicales and no kelp... cold upwelling and no large animals was disapointing. one sealion one small manta on the surface and lots of little fish and schools in one week the most dives you can do is 13. only shot three video tape and less than a 100 stills.....

Comments they have a power problem that needs to be fixed unless you like to sweat a lot. makes sleeping hard. hot at night by May.... Clean but not well maintained facilities. food was the best of all. location is right the road at the sea wall and the locals like to cruse, late on weekends, and no beach at all. town is right behind the outpost. the owner is a dreamer and if his dream comes true it will be a nice place and maybe in five or ten years the over fished fish will come back. until then it is just above camping with good food and friendly people. not enough is the way I would desribe it. not enough fish, not enough diving, not enough airconditioning, not enough water pressure, not enough electricity, not chips and salsa or any other snacks. there was enough good food and friendly people. if you were ratting this place on trying it would get an "A". it just misses, but it is Mexico after all, really Baja if you know what I mean. They are still learning. I would go back in a few years hopping the dream is a liitle further along.......the dive staff are some of the best with what they have to work with. they bust there butts and put you first... the people make this place...
