My wife and I spent the first week of our honeymoon in Cancun, QROO and were excited about becoming open water certified divers together. We were lucky enough to have Javier Munoz as our instructor. Not only did he exhibit patience and expertise through his phenomenal instruction, but he made our week even more rewarding and memorable with the incredible... More

Couldn't be in better hands! Fabulous experience with extremely friendly and talented guys. My sister and I were inexperienced at snorkeling and Raoul was very patient and endlessly supportive and helpful. We felt very safe and had a blast!

This was our first time scuba diving and Francois was so patient. He never made us feel rushed or nervous. If anything, he babied me lol. Literally holding my hand, which was totally cool because I was freaking out on the inside. He takes his time, and makes sure you feel safe and still get to see the marine life.... More

Our group of 5 dived with Tony. He was very friendly and knew what he was doing. We booked the 2 tank dive with Royal Sands($125 each+$3 national park fee). For some reason something messed up and we ended up waiting for an hour at the hotel without anyone showing up. When we arrived at Solo Buceo, we waited for... More

The location is excellent. Solo Buceo offers the shortest boat ride to the dive sites off of Cancun. The staff is helpful, fun, knowledgeable and safety conscious. Dives are never too crowded. Staff speaks excellent English. Equipment is first rate. I have dived with this shop for many years and have always had a great time.

My daughter has never gone scuba diving before, and the Solo Buceo company made this an unforgettable experience for her. Francois was her instructor and he was very patient with her and made it an enjoyable experience. All of the dive instructors were very personable and patient. I was unable to dive, but the boat captain made sure that it... More

My son and I have never scuba'd before and Francois took any doubt away. He is professional at an extremely enjoyable level and I would not hesitate to dive with him again. My son and I can hardly wait to dive again.

Went on a dive to both these awesome places in Cancun. Being a person who doesn't know swimming and has never snorkeled or scuba dived before, I was nervous. But thanks to my awesome instructor Jean Francois, it was an amazing experience! He was very patient, very organized , taught be well and managed my dive even when I was... More

We did a 2 tank dive with Francois and it was great! He was an awesome guide and we felt like we were diving in an aquarium (aka national park) with lots of variety. We stayed at the Royal Islander and the shop was right next door, so very convenient. They arranged transportation to and from the dive boat and... More

My girlfriend and I knew we wanted to test our lungs underwater. We both have gone independently but needed a refresher course. Through the Royal Caribbean we were able to sign up for a 2 hour pool session followed by an hour long (53 minutes to be exact) dive. Our instructor, Francois, was simply a delight. He was clear, patient,... More
