Cesar is a patient, safe and incredibly service-minded divemaster and operator. Every detail from the check-in meeting before our dive to the dives themselves were thoughtful and well done. Even the post-dive sandwiches were delicious. A+++ experience and highly recommended!

Cesar did a very good job pointing out the wildlife and keeping me safe. I was the only diver on my dive. He handled all of the equipment and all I had to do was roll into the water. On one dive I saw at least 8 sea turtles and one of them was only about 1 meter away. We... More

I had a great time (as a single female diver) diving with Cesar and Banderas Scuba Republic at a lovely dive site south of Puerto Vallarta called El Chimo. Cesar was professional, very easy to communicate with via email, and knowledgable about the area. The boat trip was fun and relaxing, and the dives were great -- overall, a wonderful... More

My two teenage sons and I got certified last year, but this was our first time to dive since then. Cesar was very professional, safety conscious and clear in his instruction and guidance. Made this father feel confident that my boys were in good hands and we had a lot of fun as well.

We went with Cesar on a scuba and snorkel trip, since only I was certified out of our group and the other girls wanted to come along for snorkeling on our girls' weekend out. Unfortunately, two of the girls got pretty sea sick (one of my friends got REALLY sick), and Cesar and his boat captain could not have been... More

Definitely one of the best experiences I have had diving in Vallarta. Cesar is excellent in his knowledge of the area and dive locations. As well, it was a very personalized experience, not a number in a group of people. Small tours and personal experience. Was well worth it!

Banderas Scuba Republic provided me with two great dives and one on one attention. The dive briefing was throrough and they are careful to assess your level of expertise to give you the best and safest experience. Because the number of divers is kept minimal, they are able to take you to the reef that suits your desire and experience... More

Ok I haven't reached the three digits in number of dives. I have dove in 4 different countries and multiple locations in the US. However, I can say with a lot of confidence that this center provided me the best diving experience so far. Cesar was great and expert in reading the weather (very cautious). He is a great guide...
