As I wrote before, I went on this trip that basically almost all-inclusive. The only things that were not covered was the transportation to and from the airport, food and drinks (I didn’t mind as I could go out into town and eat whatever I wanted not what the hotel restaurant was offering and I found out that the food out in town can be cheaper), taxi rides in other parts of town, and extra trips such as excursions. The only thing that was offered in this package was the scuba diving (tanks, weights, guide, boat rides) and the hotel room (which was great because I got two beds to sleep in) with air conditioner, refrigerator, and a balcony (I used this to dry my clothes and look at the water and girls). Life was great!
But I had no complaints whatsoever since the only things I was worried about was the diving and sleeping. Everything else I could take care of. Of course, it probably helped that I spoke some decent Spanish so that meant going anywhere without any problems. But don’t worry if you’re a tourist there who can’t speak the local language – plenty of people speak English. Your only concern if you’re a diver is having fun.
I have to say that the diving guides/divemasters work hard to get people to see the amazing things and on this trip was a little different. It was my first time seeing a sea turtle on this trip!
It was only one measly turtle but the fact that I got to swim around it and take some great photos was neat. But of course, it was right afterwards when the divemaster started to bang his metal clanker against his air tank to get everyone’s attention about something else.
