Our group of four divers asked Hector to show us the magic of Huatulco waters. We took 6 dives and each of them was a unique and fantastic experience. Hector's knowledge of the local diving sites, their history and significance to environment is unsurpassed. His attention to detail before, during and after the dive(s) was excellent. Before each dive we... More

His pre-dive briefing was great, he safety was commendable, and his passion for doing what he does put everyone in great spirits. The groups are always very manageble for Hector, and he isn't willing to too take too... More

Great snorkeling! Hector was very kind, capable, and full of local and historical knowledge. He was also very helpful with my iffy Spanish. He took charge when we didn't know where to start for a half day trip and brought us to some beautiful spots. My daughter and I had a great time!

I am back in Huatulco and again diving with Hector at the Sotavento dive shop. As usual I am having a great time on his tours! It is always one of the high lights of my trips to Huatulco.

I took my first diving course in Huatulco at Buceo Sotavento with Hector. Hector is really experienced and professional diving teacher and I enjoyed the experience from first seconds. Actually I liked it so much that after the course I spent five days exploring the bays of Huatulco with Hector and his crew. Night diving and seeing bioluminescence was incredible... More
