My boyfriend and I were travelling to Nuevo Vallarta Dec.7-14, 2014 and happened to have the grandparents travel with us...so we had a babysitter for a few days to get some diving in! We each have under 10 dives each, just got our PADI open water certs a few years ago. I emailed Banderas after reading a LOT of reviews... More

Another holiday with 8 wonderful dives with Banderas Scuba --- this time we completed our rescue diver certification during the first dives with a great instructor Annibal Robin... Once again Cesar has provided a great diving experience for people who like to dive vs drinking in party boats. If you want an supportive safe diving experience with other people who... More

Traveling to PV, thoughts of diving were at the forefront of my mind. While an advanced open water diver, I had not dove in quite a while and had some apprehension about doing so again. That all changed once I was in contact with BSR. Although I contacted basically all of the recognized PADI/NAUI dive operations in PV as I... More

Arriving in Puerto Vallarta, my husband and I (mostly I) were apprehensive about diving since, although being advanced open water certified, we had been diving in 5 years (last dive at Anthony's Key in Roatan for those who know the place - serious diving). That said, having never dove in Mexico we did not want to miss the opportunity to... More

My third trip diving with Banderas Scuba Republic - it just keeps getting better and better! I first dove with Banderas Scuba when doing my PADI Advanced about 5 years ago - now I'm a PADI Instructor with a lot more dive experience, and can really appreciate the quality of this operation! Although this trip was not at the best... More

My Fiance and I did two dives with Cesar at Los Arcos. Fantastic dive and saw an Eagle Ray, water snake, eels, schools of fish. Cesar was very nice and organized. I also arranged a snorkeling expedition for 16 people with him to Marietas Islands (Hidden Beach). This was the way to do it. Vallarta Adventures has a double decker... More

When I first contacted Cesar to express interest in doing my open water cert with his shop, he was incredibly responsive. My questions were answered within an hour of me emailing him. That was very much appreciated as I was planning the trip. Payment was simple and easy and I was on my way. Upon arriving in PV, I met... More

The diving was exceptional and the service was great again with BSR. This is the 4th year that I have used Cesar owner of Banderas Scuba Republic as my diving company with the same results every time, FANTASTIC. I went out with another company on a day that BSR was not available and it was a disaster. The boat broke... More

After doing my research and reading reviews of all of the dive shops in PV, I decided to use Banderas Scuba Republic to do our first dives with after being certified in the states. They are very punctual in replying to emails and give you all the details of the dives before even getting there. I informed them that it... More

We did two days of diving with Cesar and enjoyed both days. It was very easy to get in contact with him and schedule/pay for the dives (his pricing is very competitive). He clearly explained each dive on the drive to the beach and then he even worked with me on my breathing as I am a new diver and... More
