Had a single dive one afternoon, and the experience was great. The center suggested that we did the dive in the reef, and not at the museum. The dive-boat circled around the museum on the way to the reef, and we jumped into the water and had a look at it from above (with masks). The reef was beatiful, average... More

On our recent trip to Cancun, we booked the cenote snorkeling excursion with Cancun Scuba Center. Lucky for us, it was slow day and our group of three was picked up promptly at our hotel by Juan Carlos. He was very friendly and speaks English very well. During our drive to the Cenote, Juan Carlos talked about the excursion and... More

Juan Carlos and his team made for a great dive experience. He was very careful about diving safety, and as a result we had four great dives with him. I would most definitely recommend CSC, and we will dive with them again the next time we are in Cancun.

Both me and my husband were very happy with the services provided by Juan Carlos and his team. We dived with them several times when we were on our vacation in Cancun and we were able to arrange everything quickly with Patricia on our first day of holidays. The most amazing experience was the Cenotes cavern diving and diving in... More

My daughter and I dove with Cancun Scuba Center in August, and had a great experience. Juan Carlos helped us out by picking us up from our resort, which was about 20 minutes from the hotel zone. His dive team, especially Roberto ("Zorro") who took us diving, did a great job. Roberto paid close attention to my daughter's safety underwater,... More

I want to recommend to cancun scuba center , the experience was awesome, I went with my girlfriend who hasn't experience at all and we both felt secure, they are very friendly and helpful, Juan Carlos is a great person. Martin is a great guide and teacher, highly recommended for people with no-experience.

My boyfriend and I had always wanted to Scuba Dive. We found Cancun Scuba Center on Tripavisor and contacted Juan Carlos to arrange lessons and a dive. We took an hour class with Juan Carlos and spent a half hour in the pool with Martin learning the ropes. I felt like our safety was their number one concern. Martin took... More

I was certified but hadn't dived in over 20 years. My wife was getting her open water "referral dive" for certification. We were both [very] high maintenance (no doubt about that). Juan Carlos takes his responsibility with regards to certification (and my inexperience although anciently certified) very seriously and I totally respect that about him. We both learned more on...

Newly certified open water divers did a one day two tank reef dive while vacationing in Cancun. Juan Carlos promptly responded to our inquiries before and up to the day of our dives. What I truly appreciated was that Juan Carlos did not push us to go on a specific day, but rather kept us apprised of weather conditions and... More

I and my wife had four-day divings with Cancun Scuba Center. Every diving with Juan Carlos and his team was the best I've ever experienced. They selected the best day for diving, hence we could enjoy nice divings in MUSA, Cancun, Cenote, and Cozumel. Juan Carlos, Martin, and Ramond showed the best professionalism and did their best for only two... More
