We planned on staying at Paradise for 5 days, however ended up here for 2 weeks!!! Our open water course was great. Really small class (3) so felt very comfortable and safe. The dive instructors and masters were so accommodating and helped make every dive unforgettable. The other staff members were also super nice. Very welcoming, inviting us to dinner... More

After bad experience with other cheap dive centers, that was a recovery. Flexible Dive Masters, good briefings, requests will be considered, proffesional, and good price. No 5Stars Padi Centre, but cool and customer oriented. Go there, and do not look at the nice location of another one who just wants to make money.

Thank you to everyone at Paradise Dive! I had an incredible time getting my open water and advanced certification. Pisa was a great teacher and I feel so comfortable in the water now. The environment at the dive center was like a family, inviting and a fun place to hang out.

Learning to dive at Paradise was one of the best experiences of my 10 month trip around central south america and I recommended the dive school to others on my way down who then also had a fantastic time. I felt safe and looked after throughout and also had a lot of fun with the Paradise family!
