Comments The resort is quite nice. Well maintained, pleasant staff, good restaurant. But the dive operation was iffy -- it looked like the operation was new. (Yeah, that doesn't make sense.) The diver setup area (rinse tanks, showers etc) was partly under construction. And the dive-boat operations were nervous-making. In particular, tanks were loosely piled up on the deck and made it scary to walk around, especially suited-up. In the water, the typical location was nearby, with shallows at 20', a slope to 50-90' then a drop off. A dive usually drifted along the slope at about 60-80', and the terrain there was oft "bombed out" -- sand covered -- possibly due to the earthquake shortly before our arrival. The shallows were prettier than the deeper slope, with much better corals, but that wasn't the dive profile on-offer. Visits to Pescador Island were better than the local slopes. No large fish. Critters were good: froggies, OGPs, nudis, a "feeder mouth sea cucumber".
