Ramon is a great diver and a nice guy, but a very irresponsible teacher. My boyfriend was uncertified, and Ramon took him on a 70 foot dive for his very first ever dive. My boyfriend ran out of air during the dive and had to buddy breathe. We signed up for 2 morning dives- we were out from 10am to... More

I wasn’t planning on diving during my visit to Chankanaab, however after talking to the guides at Ramon Zapata’s I changed my mind. I was traveling with a non-diver, so I elected to go on a shore dive. The water was very clear and the max depth was around 25-30 feet. The dive was a lot of fun and included... More

The cost for 1 tank is $90usd. It was a very expensive dive, but I do have to say I was pleased overall. The reason why I was satisfied was because of the dive master (I think I had ramon). He was very fun to dive with and friendly. He is very helpful and pointed out a lot of stuff... More

Used them for a shore dive while in Chankanaab. Originally had talked to them about myself and son doing a dive. My son ended up not feeling well and they said "no problem" to a dive with just me and a guide. Price was $21.00 as I have all my own equipment. Everyone at their desk was friendly and helpful,...

The only diving agency I found on any beach resort on Cozumel, Ramon Zapata at Mr Sanchos is one of two sites for RZ. It is located in the corner of the resort, a small hut that also takes deposits on snorkel equipment for Mr Sanchos. After multiple failed attempts to reach RZ via phone, I finally was able to...

It is not only the amazing beauty that the reefs around Cozumel have to offer generously, but scuba diving with Ramon Zapata Divers was the most fascinating experience I have ever had! I am not a professional diver at all, but the information and equipment provided before diving was substantially enough to make me do whatever I wanted to do... More

I have been diving for the past 23 years all over the world. Island of Cozumel is one of the best! Ramon Zapata is an excellent dive master, he knows exactly where to go and what to show. Equipment was in best shape and staff was terrific, water and anti-fog was available on board and at the shop. We had... More

My friend and I sailed into Cozumel on the Carnival Dream. We had decided to spend the day at Mr. Sancho's which is next door to Ramon Zapata's Divers. One of his people was walking on the beach advertising the reef diving experience. Since I had never dove outside the United States before I decided to take him up on... More

After reading all of the reviews on tripadvisor we decided that Ramon Zapata would be the best dive shop for our recent visit to Chankanaab and we weren't disappointed. Manuel Jesus was the dive master and did an excellent job of leading the dive and helping everyone to have a safe and enjoyable dive. We had emailed ahead of time... More

My son and future daughter in law dove with Ramon on Thursday august 7 and they were so excited about their dive with Ramon. This is their 2nd dive with him and they can't wait to get back and dive again
