For six months or so, we had the privilege of seeing this Frogfish (named "eduardina" by my nephew) nearly every dive. She is the most active Frogfish I've ever seen! Also lots of Boga action, including cleaning behavior. less

According to legend it was where the Gods gathered to plan the creation of man. Construction of Teotihuacán commenced around 300 BC, with the Pyramid of the Sun built by 150 BC. The city reached its zenith approx. 150--450 A.D., when it was the center of an influential culture. At its height the city covered over 30 square km, and housed a population of as many as 200,000. The central avenue is called "Avenue of the Dead". The city contained palaces, apartment buildings, a marketplace, huge pyramids and temples used for worship. Teotihuacán was a place of pilgrimage in Aztec times, who identified it with the myth of Tollan, the place where the sun was created. Around 750 A.D., much of the city was burned, possibly during an invasion or a rebellion. less

Diving is now his new passion and he cavorts in three magical dive destinations in the Caribbean. There are many reasons why they call the Cayman Islands a divers dream: this is an entire nation dedicated to both banking and diving! Everything there is absolute: the visibility, the abundance of sea life and the drama of its underwater walls. At least 2 plane rides are necessary to find truly virgin reefs. The remote St Vincent and the Grenadines is such a place and home to a unique type of diving called “muck diving” which reveals the most amazing sea critters. Several of them have not yet been classified! Hurry before they get into every biology book. The unspoiled Tobago, because of its Atlantic currents meeting the Caribbean is known for the best and fastest drift diving. Flying underwater is a whole different kind of sport here. Sort of like skydiving but sideways. Strange and terrific to be tumbling through the water while fish life stares motionless. Hosted and narrated by Roberto Mitrotti less

Their meat was eaten and the shells were used to make tortoise-shell trinkets. Their population dropped dramatically. But here, the local residents of an ancient tribe, called the Nagua, have taken it upon themselves to become guardians of these fascinating creatures. Hosted by Roberto Mitrotti less
