Could you compare conditions to places like Galapagos or Cocos. How about currents?
I would like to visit a big fish destination, but Galapagos was too cold for me and too much current (even compared to Maldives, Sudan).

November is around 27-28. Then it starts getting colder, and at its coldest around February, it probably gets down to as low as about 22. But never as cold as the Central or Western Islands of Galapagos. If anything, I usually feel the coldest in Socorros if there is a strong breeze and I am either trying to take the wetsuit off or putting the wet wetsuit on.
I have seen stiff currents near the surface in Cabo Pearce on Socorro Island and at the Boiler in San Benedicto, but once we got to depth, it was OK.
To me, Socorros is definitely easier than Galapagos. Most of time if there is current, it is fairly mild and there is no surge like there is sometimes in Galapagos.
