What an incredible experience and absolute pleasure it was for me to arrive at the Mayan Divers Dive shop at the Mayan Princess Resort on March 27th. I chose to get my PADI open water certification while vacationing for two weeks. I was so impressed with how Kimberlie and Silvia dealt with my questions and request by email ahead of time. Once I arrived I was scheduled for my training, confined dives and open water dives.
WOW - this whole experience exceeded my expectations as not only did I get PADI certified in my first week, but continued to do some incredible dives in my second week, and ended my vacation with a shark dive that literally brought me to tears of emotion due to the awe inspiring, adrenaline and majestic nature of the dive.
Beyond the open water dive certification, the beauty of the reef, marine life and warm tropical water was the fact that I made friends with the staff at Mayan Divers. Ed and Kimberlie with her adorable baby bump are wonderful people who own the shop. Silvia and Mark are Dive Masters/Instructors that are professional and friendly. And then there was Jeannot, my instructor throughout my experience - well, Jeannot was so patient, understanding, professional and friendly and I am forever grateful for his instruction as I gained confidence and experience in the water as a new diver.
I must also mention Tedy and Manuel, the captains of the boats which are an intregral part of the diving experience. They are great men and made the experience fun and they were helpful with good humour. The dive shop also have interns and one of them was my dive buddy, Melvin. I so appreciated his respect, friendliness and he was a great dive buddy for this "older gal" as he is a young man gaining experience and certifications to continue to be a dive master himself. I wish him all the best as he continues his journey.
All in all, I can only say positive things about the Mayan Divers and the whole experience.
I will forever be grateful and I WILL be back to this place for sure!
Hugs to all,
