Top notch business. They respond quickly to email, texts, and phone calls. We went on two dives. Excellent choices of location. Equipment was well maintained. Boat and crew were wonderful. I read that others complained about the boat. It was great. It remained right there with us. Fabio was our guide. He was so patient and informative. I highly recommend... More

Alvaro catered to my extended family of nine (ages 15-50) for a week of incredible dives. He, Gigi, and Fabio were supportive and fun as the nine of us earned our advanced certification, always properly preparing us for what was to come, and planning exciting adventures for us to match our skill level. Cenote diving, wreck diving and visiting reefs... More
