Was recommended Alvaro from some of our friends and he didn't disappoint. Our kids wanted to get their Junior Open Water certs (aged 13 & 11) and Alvaro was outstanding. He was so patient -- even with a young teenager! I can tell you that my instructor when I received my OW wasn't anywhere close to Alvaro's level. He even... More

Always Diving truly does make friends, not customers. Alvaro has to be one of the most friendly and knowledgeable instructors we have ever met. He has been in Cancun for 32 years so he knows his way around and has awesome resources for all dive sites. NO LIMITATIONS, BEST BOATS, OVERALL BEST SERVICE AND COMPLETELY FLEXIBLE WITH YOUR SCHEDULE. He... More

Diving with Alvaro was a great experience. It was like diving with an experienced friend. Small group and Alvaro seems to really enjoy taking divers out. I used the rental gear and it was worn but functional. He took some great video and took the time to drop the DVD off at the hotel. We did a shark dive off... More

I want to thank Alvaro and Martin for an excellent series of dives during the week of April 27, 2014. On the day of our scheduled dive, he rode his motorcycle to our hotel to inform us the harbor was closed due to rough seas and that we would have to reschedule our dive for later in the week; although...

Despite the positive reviews, compared to other operations these guys were below average. Some of the events were out of their control but some of the others didn't lead to a good experience.

I would like to thank Alvaro for an excellent experience diving in Cancun. His customer service was fantastic and always replied to emails or phone calls very quickly to organise my dives. The diving was great and both himself and Martin should be commended. Thanks Alvaro and Always Diving!

In 2012 I first found Alvaro and Always Diving through Trip Advisor reviews. After narrowing down a list of potential dive operators, and speaking directly with at least four operators, I opted to work with Alvaro. In July 2012 my then 7-year old son, husband, and I swam with whalesharks, and my husband returned on additional days to scuba dive... More

When my son and I planned on scheduling dives on our family trip to Cancun this year, I was automatically directed to a number of sites and outfitters that our resort had "affiliated themselves with" - upon review from customers, these were typically larger boats, larger crowds, and overdove locations, etc. When I read the consistently excellent personal reviews on...
