Terrific Caribbean diving.  Lots of fish, interesting geological formations
(most of them coral-encrusted), very short trips to the dive sites.  Saba
Deep was great to dive with. Uncrowded, individualized attention (4-6
divers/trip), very flexible re: dive sites.  The staff was competent,
caring & listened as well as gave advice. Saba itself is also charming.
It is not crowded. No beaches or cruise ships; tourists are primarily
divers & hikers. We rented a cottage and cooked good meals. There are
well-stocked grocery stores with reasonable prices.  The island does,
however, have fabulous restaurants -particularly Shear Water and Queen's
Garden. 
We'll be back.  (Next time I'll bring a few sweaters ... can get a bit
chilly at night.)
