My wife and I were hesitant to go with MAD due to their lack of reviews, but we went for it, and now know that we made the right choice.
The owner Pablo and his staff were amazing. He has an incredible depth of knowledge of scuba, and the waters around Costa Rica. He seemed more like our buddy than a guide (in a good way) and was happy to share all his insights with us.
He's also very patient and calming as a divemaster. My wife had trouble equalizing on the first dive, and returned to the surface ready to call it quits. But Pablo was very reassuring and cooly helped her try a second time, descending with her inch by inch until she made it down and was then able to enjoy a wonderful dive.
We dove Cano Island with him, and it was a great experience. Lots to see, great visibility, a delicious lunch, and a wonderful, attentive crew.
I highly recommend this outfit, and wish them all the success in the world.
One last note, without pressure or sales, Pablo recommended some other places/things for us to try in the area, and all of his suggestions were great!
