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

They were very knowledgeable, great guided tour and safety orientated for first time cave and cavern divers. Highly recommend to those who want a great experience. It was my wife and... More

This was by far the best excursion of my holiday. Buceo Xtabay arranged everything very well. And if u go to the state Quintana Roo in Mexico you have to go :)

Amazing experience. Great hosts, one of which is the business owner. Knowledgeable, safe, environmentally conscious, friendly. Good food. Be advised that there is no running water at the put-in/take out site, so no freshwater rinse afterward, and toilets are primitive.

Luzma, Mario and Pnacho took us out for a great day to visit the whalesharks. I was impressed with their technical knowledge about the whales and also with their efforts towards conservation of this beautiful species. They were very cognizant of the rules of snorkeling with the sharks and of course general safety of us tourists. Also, the lunch and... More
