I want to be able to swim with orcas. I understand they like colder waters and past through costa Rica from time to time.
We saw whale sharks, black tip sharks, white tip sharks, manta rays, stingrays, eagle rays, napoleons, moray eels, an octopus, turtles, many corals and hundreds of different colorful fish. At times it was like being in an aquarium.
The Vilamendhoo house reef is great, there you have the guarantee of black tip sharks. The babies swim in the front in the shallow water and the "juvenile" black tip sharks of about one meter swim around the reef. The house reef has 10 entrances and exits around the island. There are over 50 dive sites and the Euro Divers diving school is great too.
5mm or 7mm?
I prefer no wet suit but I'm accustomed to Caribbean waters, I know Pacific will be a different story!
Went for a couple of dives in Nusa Penida (small island south of Bali) with Reeflex Divers and ended up staying for more. The dive center is super comfy, the staff is so friendly, the gear is spotless, guides are super pro / knowledgeable and finally the diving is great !!! I have been diving for a little while and Reeflex stood out so much that I felt like letting others know ;)

Our giant mantas are back this year! The visibility is awesome and the water temperature amazing.
After 16 years of absence of our giant manta population, they returned 2 years ago. Now we are reporting them daily at the cleaning station on La Reina. Just another reason to dive Baja California.
I cant manage to attach any photos ! but my profile pic gives you an idea
