Similar to a link on Atlantis, there wrere few biting insects for 5 of 7
days; mabe vit.B-1 works to keep biting insects off.
The resort was very good; natives friendly. staff at resort and diving were
very service-oriented w/ or wo/ tips.  Most of the staff  try very, very
hard to please you.  Head man of diving is Rudy who is very popular with
German and other divers; he's also very good divemaster.
Resort has racks for 35 divers but they are expanding. During the weekend,
the resort was at least 1/2 full.
Food was very tasty and good if not gormet every meal.
Diving was very good at Apo island; Apo island reminds me of Fiji diving
with colorful soft coral and lionhead fishes.; other thought local diving
was good.  Some / many marine life is unusual compared to Hawaii,Mexico and
caribbean diving.
Travel in May or Sept. when air fare is low , ~ $579 wo/ tax.
