Comments Ramon's Village is a superb dive resort, with excellent divemasters and facilities. Our divemaster, Luis, skillfully navigated the boat through the channels to the reefs (these cuts can be quite choppy) and once we were in the water he led calmly-paced, interesting dives. There was never a rush to get into the water or any rush through the dives. The land facilities are really convenient, with rinse tanks, showers, and storage lockers right on the dock. I had some equipment problems with my regulator and the repair facilities were also on the premises. The repair tech took care of the problem even though it was after hours, and he did the job right and with a smile. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. The food was good, the bar was relaxing, and the setting was fabulous. The beach is immaculate. The sunrise and sunset views from the resort are spectacular. The restaurants in town are only 5-10 minutes away walking on the beach. Elfie's restaurant was a treat. Ramon's service to and from the airport was prompt. Last, I reviewed the Miller report on Ramon's and I really wonder if he was at the same Ramon's! Our entire dive group had a great time. All are highly experienced divers.
