My friends & I didn't want to go out on a big boat with a lot of divers. Riko picked us up at our hotel & brought us back (nominal charge). He took his time orienting us to the dive, then took the 4 of us out by ourselves, with 2 crew members. The crew did all the work of... More

I found Riko at Risas Diving based upon Scubaboard.com recommendations and TripAdvisor reviews. I am an advanced diver, but my fiancé is newly certified with only a few dives. I wanted to avoid the cattle boat operations and work with a shop that would allow us to go at our own pace. Riko put together a great set of dives... More

I contacted Riko based upon some reviews here on TripAdvisor and on scubaboard.com. As advanced divers, we were looking to avoid the resort's cattle car dive operation. Riko put together a great set of dives for us that took us to sites we never would have hit otherwise. His attention to detail and the logistics made it a great trip.

I had the opportunity to go on a bull shark dive as well as a reef dive with Riko at Risas Diving. I am an experienced diver with hundreds of recreational dives as well as a former professional diver. I have to say Riko is one of the best guides I have had the pleasure of diving with. Very knowledgeable... More

I was a bit skeptical at first and was only considering signing up for the SCUBA Discovery Course as my schedule wasn't going to be flexible for the full 2 1/2 - 3 days. Thankfully my itinerary changed and allowed me the opportunity to sign up for the Open Water Certification which I was thrilled to complete. First let me... More

My wife and I were just in Playa del Carmen on vacation and were staying down the beach at the Royal Playa del Carmen. Some friends of my wife suggested Risas Diving as a great dive shop which takes out smaller groups and I was pleasantly surprised. We dealt with Riko before and during and he's a great guy. He...

The instructors at Risas Diving are excellent. They are very well prepared and they explain the theory in a way that is simple and easy to understand but they also make the learning fun. During the practical they are very supportive and patient helping their students to overcome anything they struggle with. I myself was struggling with breathing through the... More

For the first time in many years, we have had two weeks holiday in the same place. It was a fantastic opportunity for me to enjoy some water sports.
