by BRADLEY CONDO, CO, US (Reviewer Reviewer 4 reports with 1 Helpful vote). Report 8528.

Reporter and Travel

Dive Experience Over 1000 dives
Where else diving This year we have been to Komodo/Indonesia for a month of diving, cave country in Florida and a week on a T&C liveaboard.
Closest Airport JAGS McCartney International Airport Getting There interCaribbean from PLS to JAGS. We flew on a Beach 99 - twin turbo, 15 passengers, 1x1 seating with the cockpit open to passengers. Returning, we were on the larger Embraer turbo.

Going to JAGS the Beach was weight limited and as a result our bags stayed in PLS - a frequent occurrence that should be considered. The bags caught up with us about 9PM the day of our arrival.

Excess baggage charges were reasonable - we paid $50 outbound and $25 returning to PLS.

Comments BOHIO is a small resort which reminds me of the Caribbean that I visited in the 70s. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and you are never more than a few steps from the water. There are ~16 rooms in total. The rooms were good sized, spotless, cleaned daily and nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms well laid out. The bar featured live entertainment on several nights. The dive op is owned by BOHIO.

The conundrum at BOHIO is that they market to cruise ships as a day-tripper beach club. As a result the resort goes from an intimate experience to a party with 50 or so of your new best friends. They try and segregate the day-trippers, but the experience for residen ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here
