Comments Did I mention the no-see-ums? Put on bug spray as soon as you get out of the airport and keep it on the entire time you are there. I kid you not.

Love the diving setup. Dive lockers within feet of the boat. Captain and dive master were fantastic (Eddie and Jorge). Fun and knowledgeable. One moored boat dive in morning followed by drop off dive at one of several places on the reefs in front of the resort. One moored boat dive in afternoon followed by drop off dive.

60 minute bottom time limit on moored dives. Unlimited time on drop off dives. We usually went 1.5 hours on drop off dives.

We did between 4 and 6 dives a day. Shore diving is really easy. Night diving is set up to be almost fool proof. Strobe in water for 15' safety stop area. Reflective markers to indicate way back to resort.

Several dive sites had spectacular coral. Wall dives were nice. Loved diving the patch reef at night just in front of the resort.

Staff is extremely welcoming and accommodating. Food is excellent and plentiful.

Overall, extremely well organized, safe and fun.
