A local person told us about Maria - and boy are we glad we found her. She is a trained biologist and her snorkeling tour is exceptional in the area. We had been with other tour operators in PM who just rush you from one spot to the next acting as though snorkeling is about covering more ground. Maria showed... More

I will vociferously recommend a tour of the Yucatan Cenotes with Buceo Xtabay to anyone who plans to visit the Puerto Morelos area. Yes, we could have driven to the cenotes on our own but we would have missed out entirely on Luz Maria's intelligent, thoughtful and inspiring tour and that would have been a great loss. Yes, we could... More

There are so many things to love about Buceo Xtabay and its owners, Luz Maria and Francisco. All you need to do is look at the reviews and their responses on this page to see how passionate they are about what they do and how much they sincerely care about the environment, their customers, and the service they provide.

We had an awesome time with Luz Maria as our guide snorkeling through Dos Ojos Cenotes. My boyfriend and I had Luz Maria as our own guide. She was able to take us through bat caves and areas only those with guides could experience. Luz Maria is highly knowledgeable and a great chef! We enjoyed snorkeling and the lunch provided... More

What a great, informative outing with Luz Maria!! Picked up right on schedule at our hotel, transfer to the tranquil waters of the reef at Puerto Morales. Supplied everything we needed for the swim. Ended up being the only couple booked for the morning, so got to take advantage of her unbelievable knowledge of the area and ecosystem. She definitely... More

Luz Maria is an excellent Dive master. She picked us up from our lodging and drove us to the harbor. She recognizes the different abilities of the people that are diving and makes sure that people are paired up, adding additional dive guides if necessary to ensure that people are safe. If needed, they help set up your vest/regulator on... More

For any diver, understanding and knowing the dive sites is important. Luz Ma, with an academic background in Marine Biology, is much more than a guide: she's a teacher. I dived with her and felt always comfortable and secure, but more over I learned from Mayan History, biodiversity, the behavioural patterns in local sea fauna. She's truly an expert on... More

I had the pleasure of taking my Open Water certification dives with Luz Maria at the end of November. She gave very detailed pre-dive instructions, and what would be tested. She even taught me a few things that I didn’t learn in the pool classes. She provided personalized and safety oriented service, and took the time to educate me on... More

Can certainly understand the attraction of Cenote Cavern diving. Luzma and Mario picked three of us up at our resort and had all the gear that we did not carry with us on vacation coordinated. They provided an informative and safety conscious briefing. They take small groups which affords a better safety factor - for our dive we had Luzma... More
