Comments Didn't really see anything spectacular. Maybe I'm spoiled. Lots of nice swim thrus. Some of the eels tried to attack us and were probably looking for food having been previously fed by dive masters. Made for great video when they attacked my go-pro. We did 3 dives a day. Had an all inclusive package which provided cheap booze. I had too many pina coladas (can be fattening). Food was good. Enjoyed the homemade tortillas. The rooms were quite nice Lots of large groupers on wreck dive. Saw turtles on another dive and they seemed quite confident with divers (must have seen a lot of us) because they continued feeding while we shot video. Dive master killed and fed many lion fish to local animals. Dive masters were quite safety oriented and boats were comfortable. Subway seems to be a well run operation. I was with a group of 24 mostly experienced divers and we did have good time. Fire dance show at resort was worth seeing. Rode a horse for half hour included in price.
