My famly and I wanted to get scuba certified during our holiday to Zihuatanejo. On the first day Pako put everyone at ease with his professional demeanour, thorough instruction and informative briefing. We were a mixed bag of experience and comfort in the water. Our first dive was in the sheltered water off Los Gates. Although some of our group... More

My fiancee and I drove to Zihuatanejo explicitely for getting PADI-certified. We weren't disappointed at all! Pako is a very friendly, flexible, and helpful instructor, who turned our training into an exciting one. The conditions underwater in Zihuatanejo are probably not the most wonderful ones for diving; however, those conditions are even better for getting certified (for example lower visibility... More

My family and I recently returned from a vacation to Mexico. My 10 year old son completed his open water PADI certification with Pako. Pako was very easy to work with and very accommodating. Although my son had some reservations about diving, Pako provided him with a great experience and help make him comfortable in the water as he started... More

I recently went diving with Pako and Poto to complete my basic Scuba training. On day one, we did all the preliminary exercises and practices in a pool, then day two we did open dives off of a boat. Pako was absolutely the best dive instructor! He was patient, considerate, funny and just kind in general. Poto helped on the... More

The dive my friends and I did with Pako, in Zihua was extremely fun. Pako and his captain Antonio,were very professional and helpful when it came to anything we needed. Pako's demeanor and thorough knowledge on all the dive spots can make even the lesser experienced diver very comfortable. I look forward to diving with him again when I return... More

My wife and I have done 12 dives with Paco and enjoyed all of them. Paco is very friendly, timely and accommodating. Looking forward to the next time we are down to dive again.

I did 12 dives, and the open water course with Pako while in zihua from December 5th to the 12th. the course was excellent, and so was the diving. Pako made it fun and incorporated the course into the dives so it didn't feel like a waste of a dive due to the course. Pako was very professional and knew... More

I found Pako through his website and got in touch to schedule a couple of dives here in Zihautanejo. I hadn't heard much about diving here, but figured I would give it a try. Pako was really helpful in letting me know about the dive spots and conditions of the Pacific ocean. I didn't have any of my gear on... More

Scuba diving with Pako is the best. He knows where to find all the sea creatures! He is always checking to make sure that you are okay and we always had a very small group which was great! He sets up all the equipment for you and helps you put it on which I appreciate so very very much. It... More

I was traveling with my family but took a couple days away to do my scuba certification with Paco. Paco was so kind and accommodating of my scheduling needs. Paco's english is really good so communication was easy. He even went out of his way to make changes to the equipment I was using so that it was more comfortable... More
