Comments They took excellent care of our group and the Instructors leading the dives were competent, fun and attentive. Briefings were thorough and understandable. Boat Captain and deck hand looked after every need. We were diving steel tanks which gave us more bottom time but which some of us found pretty unwieldy. I was using a travel BC and switched to a standard one from the shop mid-week to keep the tank from flopping around. Free Nitrox and all personnel were very conscious of the environment including disallowing sun screen that wasn't reef friendly. The pier was a 5-minute walk from our hotel and the boat arrived with all our gear washed and loaded. One of the best dive shops I've experienced. Casa Mexicana was lovely and my room mate and I popped for an upgraded room overlooking the main road and harbor. Well worth the extra money! The breakfast that was provided was plentiful and tasty and a huge super market was about a 15 minute walk. The hotel is located in the town center, so lots going on, shops, restaurants, etc. I'd stay there again. Also, staff was great - helpful and kind.
