I dove with Patojo and Amigos Del Mar. Amigos was absolutely terrible (see review). Patojo was awesome!! He is super laid back but also on top of things. He dives because he loves it. I had a great time diving with him and would do my best to only dive with him on any future trip to San Pedro. Some... More

Patojo is the best. He is a real dive master. His knowledge of the reef and local conditions is unsurpassed. The best part.... it's like it's a secret. 5 two tank dives in 7 days and we were the only ones on the boat. It was June, but still only us on the boat. Patojo never cuts the dives short.... More

I was staying in the resort directly opposite Patojo's and it was recommended to me by the staff. I went because it was convenient, but I went back for more dives because Patojo and his guys (Alex) were brilliant and it was REALLY good value for money. I had not dived in a few years and the smaller groups (only... More

It was AWESOME!! When we got there I was first of all very scared, as it was my first time snorkeling (I am a bit claustrophobic about breathing on a tube) and I was also unsure if my snorkeling kit would work... not to worry.. they have an entire room full of equipment of every size and super clean. I... More

Patojo is a great dive master. Always fun and safe with Patojo. He knows where all the marine life is and enjoys what he does.

The owner's of the vacation rental we stayed at recommended a couple of dive shops. We chose Patojo's as he's a native of the island. The first day we took a snorkel trip to Holchan and Shark Ray Alley. Alex took us. He's a super friendly, younger guy, but surprisely knowledgeable of the fish, plants, coral. He informed us of...

I have been traveling to the little town of San Pedro, on Ambergris Caye, Belize, to dive with Patojo since 2007. He is the most amazing dive master I have ever dove with. I travel all over the world. I have taken many friends to dive with him as well and they are equally amazed. Even this small island knows... More

Elmer "Patojo" and his staff were great. Where else are you going to find someone like Patojo who is a lifelong resident of Ambergris Caye, 20+ years diving experience, owner of his own dive shop(wife and 2 daughters help out), brother of the owner of Amigos Del Mar, who not only still dives with his customers but who took the...

I have been to San Pedro deice and both times I have dove and snorkeled with Patojo's. So many of the other dive shops have huge groups and I love that Patojo's is set to work with smaller groups. This trip I dove with Dive Master Alex and captain Anthony. They were both very professional and did a great job.... More

We are a couple and I always wanted to do an open water divers course but my girlfriend was a little scared. But after she talked to Patojo with his very calm and relaxed attitude, she was more confident - and today finnished her open diver certificate. I am reallx grateful for all the patience he had with us. Patojo... More
