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...

My wife and I arrived in Cancun with a six-month-old son and his grandmother willing to babysit during a day-long excursion. Based on recommendations from a family member, we chose to dive with Alvaro and Always Diving. Alvaro was able to accommodate us on very short notice and was also very patient with us. It had been several years since... More

I found Always Diving via word of mouth. There were so many great reviews posted here as well as other forums, I figured we couldn't go wrong. All of these reviews were SPOT ON. Alvaro was patient and worked with me to upgrade my certification from PADI Scuba Diver to PADI Open Water. As any quality instructor would do, he... More

Alvaro at AlwaysDiving in Cancun provides me with great diving experiences every time (ie. Bull shark dives, cenotes, wrecks). I am an advanced open water diver and have experienced many dive companies in many areas and without a doubt, Alvaro is heads above other dive masters.
