I have been Certified since 1970 and been out with hundreds of operators - call Banderas Scuba, they are the best choice in PV. Smaller shop, so you'll get a small dive group, faster boat, personalized attention and the best knowledge of the local sites. I checked several shops and read good reviews in the diving forums about the owner,... More

Cesar was very communicative, prepared, flexible, and accommodating for our dive. We came to the area for a family vacation and three of us had a little diving experience. We loved our day of dives and found all these positive reviews to be true. Thanks!

First, I suck at doing reviews. Second, I have dove with Cesar and Banderas Scuba Republic many times. Third, I have 200+ dives under my belt. Fourth, I like small, competent, professional, nice. Cesar and Banderas are all that and more. While some dives are okay, and others are amazing (2 seahorses and 1 frog fish on one dive!); the... More

I first discovered Banderas Scuba Republic last year after reading the reviews on this site. I was sick of Vallarta Adventures Scuba trips and their unskilled dive masters. Cesar took me on some great dives last November and provided good feedback to improve my diving. I booked 2 dive trips during my most recent trip to PV (I love PV... More

I undertook my advanced dive course with Anibal as my instructor. Initially I was hesitant to go to Los Arcos again (a relaxed spot good for practising skills), only as I had already dived there and didn't see very much - but I'm super glad that I went! I was showed so much beautiful wildlife (morays, surgeonfish, a spotted eagle... More

There is a lot of luck involved in seeing a 10-12 ft manta ray.... It may have been Cesar's manta ray dance or it was truly his keen eye spotting it and then leading us all to it. Seeing this manta ray for about 40 minutes was the pinnacle of our vacation in PV but diving with Cesar during the... More

One of the best diving vacation I've ever experienced. Caesar is a true professional and a fun dive master. His work etiquette is indicative of his passion for the sport and his love for sea life. My husband and I have not only gained an experience of a lifetime, but we have also gained a lasting friendship with Caesar and... More
