Comments We planned for four days of diving, but completed only two because divebuddy contracted a cold and couldn't dive two more days. The dive shop charged for the extra days of diving whether or not we cancelled those days a day or more in advance. So if you use this shop, be careful with their cancelation policy.

The fiving was below average in our opinion. We would not go there again.

The dive shop is on the grounds of the Calabash Hotel. The hotel is pretty and seemed fine but we did not partake of its services. We stayed at the Casa Bella Bed and Breakfast and we recommend it.
