Comments It has been 6 yrs since I was last here to Isla Marisol,so it was great to get back. Eddie Usher is the owner/operator of the resort that has been in his family for many years(see past posts)there has been some changes. Now there is diving added on to the package as before it was all included. Dive masters and captain where new to me but the cook and maid where the same. They were just getting setup as we where the first people to start the years diving. There was only 2 couples when we where there so it was all to ourselves. The diving was great as always. Short 10 min boat ride/dive. Fish were as big as anywhere that I have seen. There always seem to be lots of life under the water as it is a long way from the mainland. I think that it is 1 of the best places to dive account no stores, TV's, small groups of people and lots of things to see. You should give it a try. I'll be going back again.
