First I was a bit worry that I was traveling solo for my PADI open water licence. After all, instructor is very friendly on the land, but very professional under the sea. The diving sites are very beautiful. It is cheaper than other places if compare with qualities and services.

“Depending of your need (quiet or not), ask for a room close to the dive center (more noisy) or far from the dive center (more quiet)”
