newer on the scene from a diving perspective is Panama.
Though our time there was limited, one of the dive operations took us
by boat (they must get their boats from the same place as the Belizeans
and Hondurans) out to some heavily fished reefs within the chain of
islands off Bocas Del Toro, the main dive destination on the Caribbean
When I went, visibility was poor - around 30 ft, 10m due to a heavy
run-off from storms the day before. I saw lots of macro life
(tons of spiny starfish wrapped around the coral) but with
less of the large shoals of fish found elsewhere in the
Caribbean. The coral seemed in decent shape, though.
