Comments Resort and rooms are simple, but very nice. The Dive operation is very organized and set up so that 4-5 dives a day are easy to do with boat dives and shore dives.

The shallow reefs were very healthy and lush. The deep walls were not as healthy or colourful as Cozumel, but the vast shallow coral gardens and interesting crevice/crack dives made up for it. Not as fishy as some other locations, but they seem to have more interesting creatures such as mantis shrimps, octopus, squid, banded shrimp, lobsters, various species of crabs, etc. One fun experience is the friendly schools of Atlantic Spadefish who will rub against your fins and tank if you hover very still at about 10-15 feet. Night dives were unlimited with lots of interesting things to see (octopus, eels, squids, etc.) and exploring the shipwreck at night was fun. We did the shark dive and it was also an amazing experience. We did 22 dives in our week and really enjoyed the diving, people and hotel.

Food was also good and easy for a vegetarian to find plenty to eat at the buffet meals.
