We have dove in multiple places and multiple countries, and Juan was by far the best dive master we've had. We had our daughter who is a junior diver with us, and he spent extra time with her. Every dive we went on, he had tips to improve our dive skills no matter our level and hints with dealing with... More

What wonderful reef dive experience we had! I hadn't dived in over twenty years and my wife was nervous. Both of these situations were handled well. We felt safe at all times and were monitored and corrected to improve our experience. We appreciated Juan Carlos being straightforward in helping us develop our skills and address our deficiencies. He did that... More

In Cancun on business, I had only one day for diving and Martin and Juan Carlos ensured that it was one of my best dive days ever! Martin takes diving seriously, but he's also fun to hang out with and eager to introduce visitors to the incredible sea life around Cancun. I really appreciate the thought and planning that Martin...

What an awesome day of diving in Cozumel with Juan Carlos of Cancun Scuba Center! My wife and I went down to Cancun and got married and then went over to Cozumel for our honeymoon. We have dove with Juan Carlos on past trips to Cancun and found his service, gear and expertise to be impeccable. Juan Carlos met us... More

I completed four open water dives with Juan at Scuba Cancun. Juan has been doing this a long time and he knows his stuff. His primary goal is for your safety. After that he really wants you to have a great dive. He is direct and to the point and at first I was a little taken aback. But after... More

We did the Discover Diving tour for beginners with Martin. He was fantastic. We spent about an hour sitting with Martin so he could go over the basics, and then we spent another hour in a pool practicing. The actual dive was a great experience and introduction to diving. We would definitely recommend diving with Cancun Scuba Center.

As a fairly new diver, it can be tough trying to find the right dive company when you get to a new location, especially in the more touristy areas. Juan Carlos runs an extremely professional shop that takes PADI requirements very seriously. He wants you to have a great experience, but safety and learning is foremost. I went out a... More

We went to chac mool cenote where we did two dives. It was a fantastic experience. The equipment was in great condition... More

Where to begin... We weren't sure what dive company to choose and selected CSC from this website. One concern we had is that our resort was new and is quite a distance from Cancun, so we expected that they wouldn't travel to pick us up to do the Cozumel dives. We were staying at Secrets Playa Mujeres which is 25... More

My wife and I are intermediate divers and have been diving with several operators. We used this site to select our dive company in Cancun, and it was a no brainer to choose Cancun Scuba Center with it's extraordinarily high ranking. I was a bit skeptical about how a dive operation can receive such a high ranking, but Juan Carlos... More
