This was the first dive for my two daughters who are ages 13 and 14 and the second for me. Miguel, the dive master and I were in contact even before we flew out to Mexico. He is very good at keeping in contact and explaining all the details. The day before our dive we practiced at a hotel pool in Ixtapa and the next morning we met at Puerto Mio for the dive. Miguel and his apprentice Kevin are awesome at making sure all safety and comfort levels are met. The boat captain Angel and other dive helper Omar also made sure everyone was assisted with SCUBA gear. Miguel is sooooo patient and is a great teacher. We dived to two different locations in Ixtapa and my favorite was swimming through a school of puffer fish with my daughters....priceless memories. Thanks Ixtapa Aqua Paradise!! We miss you, The Poland Ladies

My son wanted to try out scuba and took the short intro class with Miguel the day before the dive. Miguel is an excellent teacher. Then we went with him for the dove and I snorkeled while the group did the dives. My son enjoyed it so much that he wants to certify. He booked a second dive trip as well. I can’t recommend this business enough. Miguel speaks perfect English and is very knowledgeable. He is careful about safety and explaining everything. We will definitely return and do this again.

These guys were great! We brought our own equipment and usually dive shops make us to do all the prep work ourselves, however these guys provided VIP treatment for us - they did everything! We just had fun :). They are super organized and know their trade well! We were impressed. The dives were great as well, we definitely will be back!

Never having dived before I arranged a "Discover SCUBA" experience with Miguel online from the US. Miguel was great. Questions I emailed were answered almost immediately and communicaitons were clear. We met as arranged, did pool work and the next day did an open water two-tank dive. Miguel was a great teacher. His english is excellent. He is patient and skilled instructor. He was able to take someone with zero experience (me) and have me diving with confidence in a very short time. Throughout the open water dive Miguel was always showing me interesting sea life that I never would have seen without his guidance. It's the best thing I've done in a long time and I can't recommend Aqua Paraiso and Miguel enough!

Miguel and all of the staff of Ixtapa Aqua Paradise were great. I was in Zihuatenejo for a short time and wanted to dive, but I didn't make previous arrangements to do so. I contacted all of the dive shops in Zihuatenejo and nobody responded to me except Ixtapa Aqua Paradise. I was able to get 4 dives in in the two days I was there, and everything turned out great! The diving in Zihuatenejo is awesome and this is the shop to call. They speak fluent English also, which is important if your a beginner diver. I highly recommend Ixtapa Aqua Paradise. I will dive with them again my next trip to Ixtapa/Zihuatenejo. We had a blast!
