We booked last minute, Cesar was very accommodating and knowledgable. He is very safety conscious. The best part was that he is located in Old Town, so was a block away from our hotel, and a very short walk to the beach. We will book with him again and have recommended him to our friends who will be down in... More

I had an amazing dive at Los Arcos with Cesar. It was my friend and I's first dive after certification and we had an amazing time. Cesar was great and pointed out so many great things to see. We saw turtles, eels, rays and so many fish. I have nothing but good things to say about the trip, we were... More

Ceasar was awesome. I scheduled at the last minute and he still took just me out. He is very knowledgeable and uses good equipment. Had a nice 2 tank dive at Los Arcos and Devil's drop. If you are looking for a fun dive experience, look up Banderas Scuba.

What a great trip. Cesar has everything covered from equipment, safety and enjoyment of a relaxing scuba trip. If you're in Puerto Vallarta and want a fun adventure, contact Banderas Scuba Republic.

What a great trip!!! I'm a newbie diver but BF is an expert diver...Cesar was so great about accommodating us both and making sure everyone felt safe and had fun. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to dive in PV. Thanks so much for an amazing day!!! Hope to dive with you again. :)

Thank you Cesar for an awesome 2 tank dive in Los Arcos! Highly recommended shop to divers of all levels. My husband and I have been certified 1 year and we were joined by another with hundreds of dives and it was a great experience for all. We picked up a business card while the shop was closed and called... More

I signed up for a dive on Saturday. It ended up being just me and Cesar, the owner. Instead of calling the dive or making me feel like I was wasting his time, he spent more time with me and made sure I had a good time. I had such an amazing pair of dives that I signed up for... More

I did a 2 tank dive to Los Arcos (closest dive spot, 30 min away) with Cesar. Even though I got first certified in 1977 and recertified in 2008 I am not very experienced. Cesar was very patient and took care of all the little details that I couldn't remember. I was impressed with his pre-dive briefing where he went... More

We had a great dive in Puerto Vallarta a few weeks ago! Cesar was great and very patient and helpful. I had a minor panic attack on our 2nd dive since I am a newly certified diver and he was great in calming me down in the water and taking me up to the top slowly watching our parameters. We... More

Cesar runs a first class dive operation! I showed up expecting warm water, so Cesar squared me away with a nice 7mm wetsuit to replace the 3mm I brought. I also used a BC and regs from them, which were high quality and in perfect operating condition. No leaky tanks either, which is something you can run into with other... More
