Comments The diving operation was excellent. There were three in our party, and often we were the only ones on the boat. Rafael, the divemaster, was with us every day. He was safety-conscious and careful. He made sure we had a good time and went out of his way to point out underwater sights. Ramon, the boat driver, was watchful and attentive. Dolphin Divers took good care of our gear and made the diving a pleasure. I expected the cold water, and we borrowed hoods from the dive shop. I didn't expect the poor visibility, but the trade-off was diving with large critters. Accommodations at The Iguana Inn were fantastic. They only have four rooms which are actually little casitas on the property. It is spotlessly clean, and Mike, Julie and their dog Zoe make their guests feel particularly welcome. We had a small kitchen where we made breakfast and snacks. Rafael recommended "Super Burro" restaurant which had delicious food and amazingly low prices. The patio at the Iguana Inn has a fountain and a barbecue grill for guests. If we return, I would not consider staying anywhere else or diving with anyone else.
