[The boat Caicos adventures uses is quite spacious - a double hulled
catamaran which is quite stable-for those long 40 minute trips.The rince
bucket was a little small with 3 or 4 cameras in it at a time- it needs to
be slightly larger ! We saw a reef shark on every other dive,and many
spotted eagle rays-a turtle or 2 what more could you ask for. The sponges
are huge and healthy and was quite satisified with the walls around West
Caicos ]

[Provo- This hot travel destination-is cooling off a bit which can be a
good thing-it may stop the hotel overbuilding...
My wife and I stayed at the Royal West Indies Resort which was one of the
nicest and plushist places we have ever stayed.We easily walked the beach
at night after dinner - to restaurants like,Bella Luna,the return trip to
Hemingways and the casino is close by for  some blackjack. We chose a
garden view room which had a great view of the pool and even granite
counter tops in our kitchenette ! The house Restaurant "Mango
Reef" we ate at at least 3 times and were very surprised at the
fantastic seafood dishes- some with curry- which is common here.We saved
money by eating in a few times.
Our favorite restaurant was the  Bella Luna, with fantastic seafood risotto
-some of the best I have ever had- Generally, we were dissapointed with the
food and exorbident prices, up to $230.00 for 2 !   Don't miss Da Conch
Shack for Conch salad and rum !]
