Great first dive trip and first time to Mexico

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by a traveler from on October 4, 2009

I did my open water certification and had a blast. The hotel is clean and super friendly staff. Don't expect super hot water or icy cold AC. However, Ioved the island and the friendliness of the locals. The diving staff from the dive shop right across the street were fantastic. M, muchos gracias. He was a lot of fun and very skilled as a dive master. I loved sitting in the open air restaraunt to enjoymy meals. The staff were very patient with our group as we negotiated the exchange rate and as we ordered. We had several folks familair with the island so could find other local delicious restaraunts as well. This is a great place for divers and a reasonable way to spend a vacation. If you are a shopper and a partier, I suggest going closer to town. Otherwise, Casa Del Mar is the way to go. Check out their private beach. Very clean and quiet. Yes, a bit of a drive away but worth it for white sand and clear water with no current. I can't wait to go back.
