Comments I would suggest a 5 or 7 mm wetsuit or if you are wearing a 3 mm make sure you have a hood and gloves. It was a little difficult getting back into the boat (small boats with only 6 divers) but the divemaster and boat captain were very helpful. We saw a lot more than we expected and were pleasantly surprised. We were also happy that all dive gear (minus computer) was included in the price. Only doing one day of diving, we didn't bring our gear expect for computer. Lots of starfish and ran into a school of Spotted Eagle Rays. I would also stay in one of the two nearby towns next time. The food in town was delicous and very affordable and it was very safe to explore. We stayed at the Las Brisas on the western side of Tangolunda Bay. The resort was very spread out and there was a lot of stairs...so people with bad knees...beware. The hotel provided 24-hour shuttle service in oversized golf carts.
