I traveled with a good diving buddy from California to Puerto Rico recently and had the pleasure of staying at the new Royal Isabela links golf resort overlooking the northwest coast of Puerto Rico.
My stay was beyond exceptional, truly my greatest vacation ever. My friend agrees with me and we were able to enjoy daily scuba diving with excellent local dive centers and even an extraordinary excursion to dive in the beautiful caverns and reefs of Desecheo Island (12 miles off the coast from Isabela). Royal Isabela has the most beautiful and spectacular golf course I have ever seen and in addition a 5 star restaurant, tennis and swimming--all on 300-400 acres of beautifully landscaped and natural land. My accommodation in luxurious and comfortable casita was perfect with magnificent views of the ocean. plunge pool and a rain forest shower.
