Comments Absolutely fun place if you go with a group and have it organized beforehand. Pick up at hotel in town means a long boat ride to southern reefs and walls. All dives had some drifting but Punta Tunnich was especially fast, though that's where we saw the largest Parrot Fish (3 feet) and groupers (3-4 ft). 3 dives a day and a night dive meant diversity and lots to sea. I was expecting a lot of Lionfish, but was happily surprised we only saw a few.
Casa Mexicana was very white and clean and extremely attentive. It is located within waling distance of many attractive and tasty restaurants.
Caribbean Divers, led by Cezar was all about "what do you want to do and see" and safety.
Overall a great trip.
