Hi all
We did a trip to the Philippines and stayed at The Atlantis in Dumagute. Had a great week. Now looking for the same type of place a little closer to home. Anybody have any ideas for the Caribbean?

There may be dive resorts comparable to Atlantis however I don't think you will find the same quality of dive site.
Muck + plus Apo Island

I understand.. How about a place that is even close to the diving?

Check out Little Cayman Beach Resort on Little Cayman and Brac Reef on Cayman Brac.
These are excellent dive resorts with valet diving. If you like walls the Bloody Bay Wall is outstanding, but be advised, the critters are different from the Indo Pacific.

Closest for macro would be St Vincent.
I have dove both places and St V is a far second!

How about Cozuzmel? Not the same type of diving, but good walls and big pelagics. Time it right and a quick side trip to Isla Muejeres for the whale sharks could be possible
