No rinse tank on boat or at dock which was 20 to 30 minutes from resort.
After asking at the resort I was given a tub, however the only exterior
water source was brackish and dirty (hauled water from shower). The
accommodations were damp (take ziplock bags and plenty ofdrying agent) and
leaked, even when it wasen't raining, making recharging a challenge. I put
chargers under tables and beds.

GOOD - The dive guides were friendly and competent. Nitrox was available
and cheap, priced acording to the O2 % ( $7 @ 28% to $13 @ 32%). The meal
on the boat was good. The food at the resort was good and varied. The hard
coral was beautiful.

BAD - The dive operation was poorly run. The van for one of the three docks
left at 9:00a along with pickup with gear. The boat then had to be loaded
while you waited, oops, we forgot gas. The short version that coupled with
a slow flat-top boat you arrived at the dive mooring 1 to 1.75 hours. The
reverse was true at the end, the resort was called to send the van after
arrival at the dock. It took 20 to 30 minutes to get to the dock then 20 to
30 minutes back to the resort. Divers were allowed to wear gloves (no
current) and two did. One diver went to each coral he passed and pushed on
it with his finger. Bring DEET, your room is open to the outside. The
resort is about 8 years old but looks about 40. It is billed as
environmently friendly but I think that means run down. There are no
attractions on land.

WISH I had known the scarcity of fish life.

We would not return!
