Comments I was part of an escorted group trip. All dives were relatively shallow - no deeper than 40 feet. Coral in some places were pretty beat up, while in other areas quite healthy. Same with the fish. The owners and staff of the dive shop are great people, but they seemed to have difficulty with the size of our group (15 divers). There was a shortage of tanks, a shortage of boats, and then one of the two boats had mechanical difficulty when out with half of our group. It took them quite awhile to limp back to port. Getting more than two dives a day in seemed impossible, due to how much time it took to schlep gear and tanks between the shop and the boat.

The best restaurants in town were Qubanos and Barlitos. The coffee drinkers in our group thought they had died and gone to heaven upon drinking the coffee at Qubanos.

Our hotel, Playa La Media Luna, was small, quiet, felt isolated and private, while only a few blocks from downtown. It has a tiny, but achingly beautiful beach. You can easily walk the beach just around the corner and encounter multiple high-rise hotels and wide beaches.
