I did a Cenote dive and a reef dive. Sonny was a fantastic guide through the Cenote dives and made me feel... More

Klaus runs a great PADI-certified dive shop here. We had a 3-day package, escorted by Peter for Playa and Cozumel, and Sonny for the Cenotes. Klaus knows his trade, and takes great care to ensure his customers are happy. Peter, EXCELLENT! We were new divers, still wet behind our ears. He was a patient guide, knowledgeable in his field and... More
