We are currently staying at the Grand Luxxe Riviera Maya and were thrilled to find a dive shop right in the beach! The guides are professionals and everyone of the shop is very friendly. Everyone there took the time to watch and teach our beginning divers but still made sure we had great dive sites for others that are more experienced.The equipment and boat are very well-maintained. Highly recommend!

Jorge, Karolina, and Nico took excellent care of us. Jorge is an excellent instructor and got my son certified in two days helping him all the while so I could relax and enjoy my vacation. My only complaint is the prices, 130$ for 2 tank dives, 85$ for 1. That includes all equipment and excellent full service however it’s the most I’ve spent anywhere in the world. In Altamar’s defence it’s not their fault, it’s the price to pay for the convenience of being at the 5* Vidanta. I’m sure however they would have more divers if they brought their prices in-line with global standards of around 90$ 2 tank dives and 60$ 1 tank dives. Muchas Gracias nonetheless.

Ever and Margarito met up with us at La Lancha. It is a beautiful surfing spot with great waves for beginners - 3-5ft waves. If you have never surfed, Ever and Margarito will teach you and bring you to a spot where the waves aren't so high and you aren't so far from the shore. If you are intermediate, they will be out surfing with you and show you where the swells are. I stayed at a Vidanta Resort in Nuevo Vallarta. There was not much surf there so Ever said if we took a taxi to La Lancha, he would meet us there with Margarito and provide us with boards. It was an amazing time and the guys were so great.

My husband took our 6 year old on his maiden snorkeling voyage with the amazing folks at Altamar in Riviera Maya. It seemed ambitious at first but after a couple of minutes, it was probably one of the Top 5 experiences for our little guy and my big guy. The captain and instructor were so enthusiastic and helpful. The equipment was all top notch as well. We will definitely go again next spring!
