Comments [None]THE VILLA IS STUNNING, YOU CAN SEE THE SOUTHERN CROSS FRAMED IN THE FRENCH DOORS OF YOUR BEDROOM. INSTRUCTOR,DENNIS MIDENCE AND DIVEMASTER, CARLOS ARE INCREDIBLE. VERY HELPFUL AND TAILOR ALL DIVES TO YOUR EXPERIENCE AND COMFORT. WE HAD THE WHOLE VILLA TO OURSELVES COMPLETE WITH COOK, CHAMBERMAID AND THE DIVE CREW. NEED TO BE AWARE SHORT CONNECTION TIMES AT G.W. BUSH AIRPORT IN HOUSTON, CAUSED US TO MISS CONNECTION TO HONDURAS. WOULD RECCOMEND COMING IN NIGHT BEFORE TO HOUSTON TO MAKE SURE YOU MAKE EARLY CONNECTION TO SAN PEDRO SULAS.
SCHEDULE IS TWO TANK DIVES A DAY, TIME DEPENDS ON YOUR SCHEDULE. ONE NIGHT DIVE. THE STAFF WAS WONDERFUL, FOOD SOMEWHAT OK, BUT GOOD. IF YOU WANT ONE ON ONE SERVICE, BEAUTIFUL REEFS, LOTS OF SWIM THROUGHS. DIVES TO 135 AT THE PINNACLES, AND THE JADO TRADER AT 110, A SUNKEN FREIGHTER. WE SAW ALL KINDS OF FISH, PARROT, WRASSE, MORAYS, TURTLE, GRASS EELS, NURSE SHARKS, TO NAME A FEW. WATER TO WARM FOR PELAGICS. WE WERE TOLD THIS UP FRONT BY JOHN HESSBURG OF U.S. DIVE TRAVEL. HE GAVE EXCELLENT SERVICE AND WAS VERY HELPFUL IN GETTING CONNECTION TO LA CEIBE AND ONTO GUANAJA AFTER MISSED FIRST FLIGHT TO SAN PEDRO SULAS. VALUE FOR THE MONEY AND SERVICE WAS MORE THAN WE COULD HAVE HOPED FOR. JOHN AND SHARON BRANDON
