Yes it is. But I've stayed as far away as The Palms by the airport and they pick you up and drop you off. Very convenient.
We will be there next week and want to do a scuba dive; what sites do you go to. Interested in Mexico rocks and Tres Palmas. Will snorkel in Hol chan marine and shark alley. What is the cost? We'll need the intro dive lesson and would like a 2 tank dive. Thank you
