Diving the reef at Ambergris Caye, Belize opened our eyes to a world of beauty and excitement we had never experienced before. Our scuba instructor, Patojo Paz, made clear that the goal was to have fun while learning to dive safely and responsibly. Five days later, as newly certified divers, we were eye to eye with nurse sharks, reef sharks,... More

Patojo and Alex are the best dive masters in San Padro. This was our second trip to the Key and this was the first stop we made upon arrival as we wanted to dive with Patojo again. Had a wonderful time again!

Was going to be going on vacation to Belize and getting PADI certified was something I had been putting off, so I decided to do this while in town. I'm so glad I did. Elmer and his crew were very knowledgeable and Elmer was a fantastic instructor going over the basics of the equipment as well along with the underwater... More

We just returned from six days in San Pedro. If you want a great snorkeling adventure, check out Patojo's. Alex took us to Hol Chan and Shrk Ray Alley on Thursday. He is a fantastic guide and very knowledgeable about the area. We wanted to squeeze in one final trip before leaving on a 12:00 flight on Friday so we... More

Patojo's was recommended to us by a father and daughter we met at Caves Branch prior to our visit to San Pedro. Glad they did!!! My husband and I prefer to dive with smaller, independent shops as they always have a small dive group. Alex, the divemaster, led us on a 2-tank dive with two other couples. Highlight was the...

Patojo's was an overall awesome experience. Low key, yet professional in every way. They only take out smaller groups and they will take you where ever you want to go. Patojo greeted us at the shop and gave us a short briefing before going out with Anthony and boat driver Dave. They got everything ready for us, all we had... More

When it comes to diving Ambergris, there are none higher than Patojo! High praise you might ask... well, when we were getting out of our taxi the person sharing the cab saw we were located close and said 'oh, I've been diving w him for 15 yrs.' Uhmm, me & my diving compadre thought. Then we bumped into to some... More

We have been diving with patojo for over 8yrs and 10 trips to San Pedro , they have become family to us. Patojo certified both my kids in open water and now advanced. They have been diving since they were 10 with him so they are very comfortable. The quality of service can not be matched by anyone. Antonio was... More

With little to advertise himself I stumbled upon Patojos while staying at Ocean Tide resort across the road. The entire operation was brilliant. Patojo strikes the delicate balance between first and foremost having a safe dive, yet still allowing enough room to explore and really have a fun dive. Too many other dive masters on the island seem to have... More

Little background on myself as a diver - I've done ~130 dives in Caymans, Bonaire, Indonesia, Costa Rica, Panama, Jamaica, BVIs, Cozumel and now Belize. Did 14 dives there in six days. We used one other dive operator besides Patojo for the Blue Hole (and we liked Patojo way more). On Patojo - His operation is awesome, extremely low key... More
