Comments The weather was cloudy with periodic rain storms. There appeared to be a whitish/yellowish haze off resort that limited visibility significantly. Because of the overcast weather it was hard to warm up on the boat between dives. I was cold on every dive in 79 degree F water despite a full 5mm wetsuit and 3mm hood. No gloves are permitted.

They set up your gear for the initial boat dive and changed the gear to the second tank if you are doing the drop off dives on either of the two walls that funnel back towards the resort. If you get in the shallow water at the top of the walls, there were numerous small fish and small critters. Large fish were very limited in numbers.

A virus seemed to be working its way through the resort so a number of people were sick with nausea and diarrhea.

You have to pay the exit tax at the airport which was $39.24. They would take a credit card that was processed as a cash advance. They hand searched your carry as you boarded after having X-rayed it during normal screening. You could not have liquids greater than 4oz in your carry on even if you purchased it in the waiting area for boarding.
