Comments It was very convenient to pick up our gear, board the boat right out front, and dive. We ate our meals on site, also very convenient, usually tasty and lots of variety. Fresh fruit was abundant at breakfast. Visibility was good; we did not measure it but I guess 80 feet or so. On some dives, conditions were not what we were told to expect, but we never had a problem. The resort offers unlimited shore diving; we took very little advantage of this. On the dive we did there, we found some interesting creatures to see.
Wish I had better understood before we left home: guests are expected to tip in cash at the end of the stay and the extensive handout provided upon arrival listed their hoped-for rate for tipping various categories of staff.
The ATMs we found in town provided cash in US dollars or pesos, your choice.
The room we were assigned was upstairs with a view of the courtyard but because the toilet needed repair, we were moved to a wonderful ocean-view first floor room.
