you ever thought about Costa Rica? For Americans and Canadians, it is way closer to home, and even when you’re flying from Europe, San Jose is much closer in flight time. And while it is not an island, it is very tropical and you can still live the dream and if you do a good search you will find a very cheap ticket to get back and forth 🙂

Here at Rich Coast Diving we offer great packages with loads of add-ons. These include several PADI specialties and Marine science programs. We just opened a new “intern house” were you can stay at a reasonable cost. If you want to learn a second language I think Spanish lessons will be more useful than Indonesian, wouldn’t you? Here in Coco, on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, there are several language teaching institutes that make you understand. You’ll be able to hold a decent conversation in Spanish in no time. The Spanish classes are highly reputed at a very reasonable cost.
