My husband and I are new to diving. Our Calypso Dive Master, Nicko, made our experience diving cenotes both comfortable and fascinating. He spent time helping us with buoyancy and breathing. His focus on safety was also reassuring. We weren't sure what dives to do and Calypso staff spent time helping us sort out how to make the most of... More

We had a great time diving with La Calypso. Although it is a small company we had a great experience you would expect from a larger dive company. It was our first time doing any cenote diving and we were blown away by how fun it was. We felt very safe throughout our dives and have no concerns about the... More

We did the Sac Actun and Akumal snorkel. Alex was friendly, very knowledgeable and a perfect guide. I can't really say enough positive things, the entire experience from beginning to end was magical. I'm basically echoing what others have said. It was just the two of us, not sure if that's the norm but we appreciated the one-on-one experience. Next... More

Amazing, Fantastic – The Best! The absolute perfect 10 of our entire Cancun vacation! Made the trip to Tulum and booked the cenote and Akumal snorkeling combination with La Calypso Dive Center. We hit the jackpot and had Alex as our guide for our family of 3. Alex is the epitome of professional, knowledgeable, and fun. His passion and respect... More

We met Alex in the town of Tulum because he was our neighbor and manager of the apartment where we stayed. He told us great places to go and did not pressure us at all to hire him as our guide. But we figured, hey, this guy is easy-going and genuine, we've never been to Tulum, and he seems to... More

Super low key with beautiful cenotes and good conversation. Alex knows his way around and how to keep you away from the crowds. Be good to our new friend!

La Calypso was reccomended to us by a friend and what a reccomendation it was. Alex was an amazing guide, great knowledge of the culture, the environment, the area and spoke fluent English and Spanish (as well as Itailian). The Centoes were magical and swimming with the giant turtles is a must do! Highly reccommended to hook up with these... More

My wife and I visited Tulum this past weekend and spent the afternoon with Daniel from La Calypso. We had a great time. My wife does not dive, but she came along and snorkeled in Grand Cenote. This was my 15th or so dive in the Caribbean area. It was amazing. I have wanted to experience the Halocline ever since... More
