Our experience during our Spring Break vacation with Banderas Scuba Republic deserves a superior review. We booked three days of diving prior to travelling to Puerto Vallarta but were unfortunately only able to complete two due to bad weather. Cesar took into account where we were staying and gave us a good rate to offset the 40 minute cab ride... More

My 12 year old daughter took a Discover Scuba program with Cesar (for the pool session) and Anibal ( 2 ocean dives) just over a week ago. From the first contact by email, Cesar was very professional and quick to answer questions. When we arrived at his shop, we were fitted out in dive gear that was in great condition... More

Cesar did a great job taking care of everyone. The dive conditions this particular day were not very good, but Banderas Dive Republic took great care of us.

Being new to diving, 12th dive was with BSR, it was great to have feedback on skills and safety from a very knowledgeable, seasoned diver. Cesar briefed us on entering/exiting the water, gear, and safety reminders. He humbly admits his eyes are old when he went over how to indicate to him the remaining air in our tanks while underwater,... More

Cesar led us on a great two tank dive last week. His knowledge of the dive sites allowed the small group of us to have the best experience possible.

I went on a two tank boat dive with Cesar last week and was very impressed with the experience. I arranged the dive via emails and he answered quickly and gave all the information I needed. The deposit is paid via PayPal and then the rest when you get to the dive shop. The hired equipement was in good condition... More

We have a place in Nuevo Vallarta and have been visiting for about the last 12 years and have previously dove with another dive centre. My son (18) was recently certified and had only about 10 dives. I decided to try Banderas Scuba Republic and was very glad we did. Cesar's all about safety and knows his way around the... More

Bandera’s Scuba Republic is an overall First Class experience. César is all over it. He responded very fast and thoroughly. The shop is in a great location close to the pier, César is very easy going, knowledgeable and safety orientated. He made the entire experience very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend and use them again on my next visit to... More

My husband and I dove 2/21. Cesar and our awesome captain made sure to show us lots of wildlife on this trip to Los Arcos; baby humpback whale and mom, blue footed boobies, pelicans, tons of fish, eels, and Hawksbill Sea Turtles! Delicious sandwiches and sodas post-dives. Felt super safe and had a great time! Cesar made sure we spent... More

I did my open water dives for certification with Cesar and Anibal and they did a great job. We spent two days diving at Los Arcos and these guys were pros. The gear was in very good condition, my questions were always answered and I was able to enjoy the dives along with getting my certification. Cesar did a great... More
