Accommodations are mostly in small lodges, almost all of which offer meal and dive packages. The chefs in most places create wonderful meals despite often-limited resources. You won't find any independent restaurants, but if you are staying in a villa or condo you can usually have dinner at one of the resorts (be sure to call ahead). Dive packages represent exceptional savings. Most resorts prefer a five- to seven-night stay in high season, but the minimum isn't always strictly enforced. Still, rooms for shorter stays may not become available until two to three weeks prior to your trip dates.
