Is it just me, or are all the pics showing up as links? When I hit reply, the message shows every image.

After a thread is a month old, TD software programing turns photos into a link. I think they do this to save on bandwidth...

Gotcha. Well, that renders the thread with all of the destination links useless

Sadly, yes. I've sent an email to the TD admins asking about this.

Can you fix some of the photo URLs? Even when clicking on them it is blank.

Thx!

I've always wanted to dive Chinchorro Banks. I think you could base out of this area. Any of those folks run dive trips out there?

Yes there are dive operations out of Xcalak, I don't know much about them but here are a couple of links. XTC Dive Center and Costa de Cocos Resort, but you would probably need to drive up to Mahahaul to get closer to that dive spot.

I'd trust the water before I'd trust that map.

Thanks!

Maybe someday. I've dove on the three atolls in Belize, this is the only other true atoll in the Caribbean.
