First, I only socialized here. I did not dive here. I went to chill with friends in their hangout area. It was extremely relaxed. People were friendly and chatty. One time I asked a dive instructor if he could buy me fish when the fisherman came to sell fish because I could not make the time the fisherman came. I... More

I can't recommend Paradise Divers highly enough. Our time at there was excellent! We went for 5 days and stayed for 10. Miki, Jorge, Negro and the crew made our open water experience one to remember. The vibe is very friendly and as a first time diver they helped me to feel confident in the water. The staff are professional... More

Only a week before leaving leaving Guatemala after 6 weeks there my girlfriend, two other friends and I decided we'd go to Utila to do our Open Water diving course rather than go through El Salvador towards Nicaragua. And after ending up at Paradise Divers Utila we're stoked we made the decision. This place and doing this course has surpassed... More

I recently got my Open Water certification and I did my second fun dive with paradise. It had five star on TA but had lower prices than other school, so it looked like a good deal for me. They have a room were you pick up your own gear between the many they have, prepare, take to the boat and... More

My girlfriend and I got our open water cerification here and couldn't have been happier. The place was totally chill, and we had our own instructor, Henrietta.

In March 2015 I wanted to dive with them. The first day I was talking to Pablo, a very friendly and nice Spanish guy about their diving.
