Comments  
NECO Marine was excellent.  They took us on night and afternoon dives with
only two divers.  Unfortunately, the night dives were all local wreck
dives.  The dive guide, Ernan,  asked us what we wanted to see, and then
tried to find it for us.  He was accomodating, friendly, and always
helpful.  He lent me a weight pouch when one of mine was lost.  Nitrox was
available, and though somewhat expensive, was worth it.  Waterfront Villas
was clean and modern with a full kitchen and a nice view of the ocean. 
However, it was in an out of the way location and not convenient to town,
so we had to take a taxi to go anywhere.  The on-site restaurant, Captain
Finn's, had good food, but was expensive.
