Our guide, Lazarro, was knowledgable and made a fun day for us. He and our driver met us right on time outside of our Air Bnb and we took a lovely drive from Havana to Verdero. We snorkeled n beautiful waters and swam in a freshwater cave, never far from the best pina colada I've had. He even accommodated our dietary needs by stopping at a lovely roadside restaurant. Would highly recommend!

What an incredible experience of a lifetime. Our ship was delayed getting into port and our guide was still willing to take us even though it meant he would get home much later than anticipated. Lazaro Gonzalez was our guide for the day and we had a wonderful time. He is very knowledgeable and explained everything we were going to do for the day. We rode in a Bel-Air down to the beautiful Bay of Pigs to snorkel. Lazaro made sure that we knew how to snorkel and stayed with us during the entire experience. He pointed out different fish and coral and made the snorkel experience both fun and educational. Lazaro took us to a great place for lunch and the food was amazing. We have snorkeled all over the Caribbean and this was by far the best and we cannot wait to go again.

This company delivered what it promised . The guide was extremely polite and knowledgeable . He knew his stuff , which I am thankful for as I think we circumvented a lot of basic safety rules we would have in Canada . We went from a 1954 Chevy to 10 meters underwater in about an hour . Lots of fun . I felt safe the whole time but I don’t think you could get this experience in the developed world .

My daughter and I did 2 day trips with Ricardo and had an amazing time! The first trip we did the private Snorkel at Coral Beach and Cave swim from Varadero (approximately 40 minutes from Sol Palmeras). We were never rushed and were the ones who decided how long we wanted to stay at each location. Lots of fish to see. The second trip was a scuba initiation for my daughter and a refresher for myself (A little over an hour from our Hotel Sol Palmeras). The gear provided was top notch, wetsuits were included. After a theory session on the beach, we had a short dive where Ricardo evaluated my daughter's comprehension followed by a longer dive of approximately an hour. Both dives were walk in from the beach in an area where we were the only divers. Both times we were picked up from our hotel on time and in a classic car. TIP: There are quite a few convertibles don't forget to sunscreen properly before leaving on the excursion. The older cars also do not have seatbelts if this is an issue for you say so ahead of time. Ricardo is a wonderful person to spend time with, very patient and calm. His English is excellent although we spoke in Spanish a good part of the time so that we could practice. Gracias por todo Ricki Ricardo! Eres el mejor!

My husband and I booked a private day-long tour with Ricardo as our host and guide. We had an amazing day, saw some beautiful coral formations and fish. We had a stop on the way for coffee/restrooms, and a delicious lunch after of local Cuban food. Portions were generous with great choices of the protein (chicken, pork, alligator, lobster, shrimp, deer, etc.) as well as soup, salad, and rice & beans. I hope we can spend more time with Ricardo on our next visit!
