Louis (nono) was an incredible guide. He is a friendly and knowledgeable guide who was more than happy to answer all of our questions. Me and my girlfriend always felt safe and attended to. We dove both Chac Mool and Kulkuklan which are two caverns connected by a system of caves. Both were amazing experiences especially when you penetrate the caverns with only your torch providing you with light to then come upon godly sun beams billowing down into the depths of the caverns. Again, an amazing experience with an amazing guide. Thanks Louis!

I would say one of the nicest things COVID-19 is leaving me is reconnect myself with diving... last minute mini vacation in Mexico (after being sick 4 months prior). I wanted my husband to snorkel in a Cenote... and voila!! El Nono was there... he is not only a good instructor (hey, he takes beefing very seriously ) but he can also talk about several topics eloquently and he went above and beyond with immersions. One more lesson: Don’t let Iguana take your carnitas sandwich... I felt very safe and we laughed a lot... 100% recommended...

I've dove with Luis a number of times now for cenote dives and he's absolutely phenomenal! He knows the cenotes like the back of his hand and I feel safe and completely at ease having him lead me through any of the cenotes, he also is a wonderful person and a pleasure to spend the day with. Luis also did a fantastic job of taking extra precautions with all the COVID protocol that comes with diving these days. I can't recommend Luis enough, he's definitely the only person that I'll use for diving cenotes in the Yucatan.

I've posted 2 reviews for Happy Manta and I have to say, some thing never change ... just like 2017 & 2018, 2019 diving with Luis/Happy Manta was fantastic. If you have not experienced cenote diving in / near Playa Del Carmen - you must. And if you decide to do it, you should book with Luis and Happy Manta. The one on one, personal attention is something I've not received from any other diver operator. It's a far cry from the crowded snorkel/party boats and packed whale shark pangas. Add to that the local breakfast sandwich from a street vendor and the local lunch from the people at the cenote and you have an amazing, authentic and incredible dive. Diving the cenotes feels like you're on another planet, or maybe the moon. And Luis is like the Buzz Aldrin of cenotes ... he's been there, done that and makes it a memorable experience. One other important note, after diving with Luis you sense that you've been talking with more than a dive guide, but also a friend you can reach out to, not just about diving ... but about conditions on the ground in Playa, which is very important in our current climate.
