Comments Christina Roman was with us the entire time. She is an outstanding instructor and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone. She first checked out our skills and then we went diving according to them. Toward the end of the four days we were diving in more arduous areas, but still within our expertise. She let us dive our computers. I am sure that she would work with any skill level and seems to know a great deal about the water, currents, fish, fauna, etc. She has been diving for over 25 years and she was most accomodating. Luis, her husband, was the instructor for the two referral divers in our group and did an outstanding job. After he finished with the referral divers, he went back to his fishing boat and Heime joined us. We had a great time and all of us are already planning to go back, and go diving with her and her great crew. Christina's boat is not the newest, but worked well and had plenty of shade, fresh water, and a good bathroom. Fiesta Americana was very good. The rooms were clean and we did the all-inclusive. The food was above average, but a little limited. I would probably not do the all inclusive again (would want to go to town and try other restaurants and since I don't drink alcohol wasn't a great deal.
