Comments Tired of the AI circuit, we tried the condos at El Cantil. This was our 4th time here. Every time a different condo, everytime very happy with the set up; rooms are spacious, well kept, the pool area is excellent, you can snorkel from the dock or walk in from a cut out area leading to the sea, all dive ops pick up at the El cantil dock ( no extra charge), and your almost in San Miguel so a short walk away from some excellent dining. You get to eat exactly what you want, when you want etc...
A different way to do it but my wife & I will be hard pressed to go back to an all inclusive.
Blue Magic Scuba is run by Joyce Mustin, she has put together a great team of people, the boats are clean, they arrive on time, they take you where you want to go not where they feel like, the boats are never overcrowded usually 4 sometimes 6, the DM we request is Pumba, he lets us do our dive, take our pics and is there for us if we need him.
We highly recommend this dive op
