This was my 2nd time at Plantation Beach Resort in 4 months. Words can’t adequately describe my time in Cayos Cochinos, and I can’t tell you how extremely grateful I am for the experiences I am lucky enough to have had. During 15 dives, I saw things I can only describe as magical. Swimming with schools of Blue Tang, watching in astonishment as the bioluminescence and pearls turned the dark ni
ght ocean into an entrancing scene as if something right out of Disney, while bolts of lightning lit up the reef in the darkness, seeing a sunken airplane, watching a gorgeous sea turtle resting in the reef, living through a gang of 7 barracuda LOL, seeing an 8 foot nurse shark swim by from the boat and diving in to find it, (yes, I did that…I know…it’s still unbelievable to me, too), visiting a little with the local octopus I now call Frank, surrounded by his garden of shells, and diving off the boat into the bluest waters I’ve ever seen, were only a few of the amazing things that I will always remember and think of on days that are less than fantastic. I so loved getting my animal fix with Rocky and Jaxx, too. But the time spent with some of the best people I know, on one of the most beautiful places on earth, with great conversations, billions of laughs, underwater adventures, hiking, and catching up will be with me forever. A piece of me will always remain in Cayos. Some tears may have been shed LOL. Some apologies may need to be made to Joe for having to put up with the tears all day long on the trip back. Ha! I’m such a baby. Although it’ll take me a few days to adjust back into reality, I will have a smile on my face each time I think of my time there. I’m so appreciative for my life, adventures, friends and family. WHAT A LIFE! Oscar, thanks for a safe ride and a great tour! Maralena, it was great to meet you. Julie, you’re a trip! Edith, you rock. I will miss you! Danny, I love you, my friend. You’ll always be a part of my family, too. Roger, thank you for everything. And Nito, take care, my friend. I will miss you. Special thanks to Danny, Samuel, and Joseph for making it an incredible week.
