Comments As older diver,wise,I found the trip from Texas very nice even in economy. Transfers were already set up by vacation connections so after customs it was a short ride to the resort. check in was easy. My Dive buddy, Vernon, and I roomed together we both had queen size beds. every room has a balcony (good for drying stuff) if you are below the 5th floor trees block the view. All food, drinks, and dives were included for around $1300.00 We did 2 dives a day.
This was my first experience drift diving and I love it. we were back at the resort anywhere between 1:30 and 3:00 everyday. Nitrox and night dives are extra if they can get enough people to do it.
I have some picture's and video on my face book but I am still learning about my go pro so not that great. The dive masters were all great helping me get weighted for saltwater since I had not done it for 2 years. Instead of 6 lbs I need 12 lbs.
I will not forget that because I am going again next year.
Most every one had on thermoprene or 1 1/2 mm wet suit to warm for me I only wore my hot skin with swim trunks. I could have rented dive gear but rather bring my own because I know it.
