Scuba diving was like entering a whole new world. Hearing the sound of my own breathing was pretty trippy. And it felt like I had 3D legs. Normally legs can only travel on a flat plane (sort of) but here you can not only go forwards, backwards, up, and down but also higher and lower. The statues were much cooler then I imagined. They were covered in coral and algae that had naturally grown on it. And there were fish swimming among them.
Here’s how it worked…
After about 5 minutes playing bumper people in the pool, I was bored. If you finish in the pool early, they’ll tell you to go eat upstairs (which has surprisingly good food)
but if you don’t want to spend the $ or aren’t hungry, the beach is right across the street. Also, if you want a sweet snack and don’t want to settle for the chips or candy bars they sell at the scuba place, vendors are selling donuts, mangos, and coconuts for cheap at the beach.
2. The Boat Ride: 1/2 hour each way to the underwater museum.
Fun: 8/10 fiestas (the boring pool brought the score down)
Captivation: 10/10 sponges (all absorbing)
Food: 7/10 feasts (surprisingly good)
