If you are planning to frolic in the Pacific, this is not the place. There is no lifeguard, and visitors are warned to stay away from rocks and riptides, which pretty much rules out the beach. However, if you are a pool person, you'll love the huge infinity pool. The resort itself is beautiful and well maintained. But if you are paying $500 a night, couldn't they give you free internet rather than charging $15?
I was on a tour, and the tour company paid all the tips, which may have had an effect on the staff. We had to ask to be reseated from the very hot terrace to the air-conditioned dining room. Some of the dining room staff was downright surly. But if you are paying the full price you might get better service.

... with Yami and Anna at the beach playing in the waves, basking in the rays and discussing the differences between men and women's shopping (funny how this topic is oh so similar no matter where you are!). We bought some fresh street ceviche from a man who speared it last night and served it straight from his cooler.

... t keep still so Martin ended up holding onto Shana's fins to stop me swimming off with her. To be fair him shouting at me while I do it is probably good practice because I'm sure a real life rescue is going to far more stressful than that! After this all the DMT's went back to the shop and I got the rest of the day off as I haven't had a day off this week. I was going to sun bathe in my towel but the ground was boiling so I decided to test the ...
Day 14: Today is finally the day I get to do my shark speciality and finished my advanced diving course all in one go. Once I'd got in to the shop I did my knowledge review with Laura for the shark speciality and then we headed out to the boat. Brenda is going to be diving with us today which is pretty cool, unfortunately the water is cold. At our first dive site, Tortuga the current was so strong that despite my best efforts I wasn't moving anywhere when I was trying to get to the ...
... subject of cars and transport we have to smile
sometimes as the owners of even the more robust 4x4s on the roads here will
invariably come to a virtual halt to negotiate even a minor bump or pothole in
the road. Their nasty and usually unmarked speed bumps which one can encounter
almost anywhere DO demand respect however and are almost up there with the
shockers (excuse the pun) we remember on the Tanzam Highway in Tanzania.
How’s our Spanish? ...
