Comments The service is excellent at the resort with a very friendly and engaging staff. The rooms are kept spotless by housekeeping. A wide variety of delicious food is available at the Buffet Restaurant. Pro Dive Mexico is a very professional and accommodating dive operation. The boat crew is helpful and courteous. A gentleman named Santiago washes the gear for divers and stores it in a secured area. The number of dive sites is limited in this area. There is no shore diving. Divers must carry their own gear and weights through several hundred feet of sandy beach to the boat anchored at the shoreline. A few of the reefs have heavy currents. Most dives are very relaxing with lots to see under the water.
