I had a fantastic experience. Samuel, Enzo and Jean were very professional, put me at ease and made my experience unforgettable. I will be back. I think these boys need a pay raise! I will tell everyone and try to send business your way. Excited to get my certification card. Thanks Mike

We had both new and experienced divers in our group and Our dive masters (Cora and Miguel) did an awesome job of making sure all divers got the experience they wanted. The reefs in both Playa and Cozumel were very healthy. It was the best dive we have had in Playa.

I have been to the Sandos Caracol resort 8 times. Each time I have SCUBA dive with Scuba Libre. They are well organized and friendly. The staff stays with them a sign of a good operation. I recommend them to anyone in the Playa del Carmen area.
