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.....

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...
