This trip was really amazing. I stayed at Club Cantamar (CC) from 6 Oct - 16 Oct 2013. I was traveling solo primarily to use up expiring vacation days from work and I couldn't have made a better choice than to stay and dive at CC.
Many people say that CC is too far from Centro La Paz but I found a shuttle from the hotel to town whenever I wanted it. This was a dive trip and I certainly did dive. The in house dive op is Baja Dive and Service (BDS) and it is run very well by the entire staff. Friendly people run BDS and the divemasters are very good divers - especially Maria who basically took her own time to be my dive buddy since I was, as said above, traveling alone. I very much enjoy diving alone but it was such a pleasure to have such a fundamentally skilled and natural diver to pair up with. Made so much difference!
Crystal clear water and 82F with no thermocline - heaven for this Southern California native diver.
The food and service at the CC was outstanding with the dive boat arriving back at the hotel around 5PM each day - shuttle to town leaves around 6:30 or 7PM if you'd like to go into town for a nice meal and they'll pick you back up at 10PM to return - or you can stay the night in town and they'll pick you up in the morning to get back to the hotel and get ready to go out on the boat dive at 8:30AM sharp.
I appreciate that the CC is out of town which make it closer to the dive sites we went to.
I have zero complaints. I hope I made some lifelong friends among the staff and with BDS - I will return very soon and often. It's only a few hours from Los Angeles, CA - so long weekends at CC and BDS are definately in my future.
