Comments I had planned to dive for a week based out of Vidasoul resort. Unfortunately the resort was not as nice as advertised. The rooms were spacious with a/c and comfortable beds, but the eco base theme was more than my non-diving spouse could handle. No paper in the toilet killed the stay. We left after one night, and moved to Royal Solaris, 25 miles west to civilization. I believe Vidasoul will be a nice place to stay once they have completed the pool and ironed out the operation. the food was above average and the drinks were good. It's still a 40 minute drive to Cabo Pulmo Resorts. Cabo Pulmo Bach Resort has accommodations, that are rustic and fine for divers, but leave the non-divers at a resort in Cabo San Lucas or at home. The diving operator has been around for many years. The rental gear appeared in good working condition. After our 2 dives, they rinsed my gear and helped stow for travel back to my hotel.
