The water may be warm (27°C to 30°C) but a wetsuit is often preferable for comfortable diving. A 3mm suit should be adequate, but 5mm is preferable if you want to go deep or dive more than once per day. Some resorts don't have a good selection of wetsuits for rental, so this is a good item to bring if you can. When dive centres say 'full equipment rental', that doesn't usually include a wetsuit. Renting a suit will cost about US$5 per day. It's possible to dive in a T-shirt if you don't feel the cold too much.
