trip report Jan 13-18 aldora & casa mexicana
This was my second time on the island and first time to dive with Aldora. Moved trip up a day to avoid a predicted ice storm that never happened. Arrival through passport control and customs was incredibly easy and quick.
Did 8 morning 2 tank dives with aldora. I had originally planned to add afternoon dives or night dives but the morning dives were all nice long dives so I cancelled the extra dives. Sites visited were planacar caves / bricks, tunich, maracabio,dailia, columbia deep, white house / caedral, punta sur, and santa rosa wall. Most dives were 60-80 minutes. I had a 3mil suit on and was chilly by the end of each dive. The dive coats on the boat were very welcome.
On the trip home I put together some gopro clips using imovie
Shot with gopro 3 white, backscatter flip 3.1 and a D11V archon light.
Would definitely dive with aldora again and would stay at casa mexicana again. Favorite restaurants were: Los Oates, fishermans mercado by the graveyard, La Choza, Maple Bakery and Zermat bakery, Kondesa, and Camillas.
