From the start, Camille was very responsive and thorough in her emails answering my slew of questions. I immediately felt comfortable with this company considering I was initially... More

And then, the team of instructors and dive masters is really nice. Marine, Carlos, Nicolai, etc. are polite, funny, great divers, spot fishes as nobody can and... More

Everyone we worked with during the 4 dives we did was absolutely amazing, from the driver who picked us up, the boat captains and... More

I visited Playa Del Coco on my own and was looking to learn to dive. I came across Summer Salt and I'm so happy I did. Celine was an excellent teacher, very patient and thorough and happy to move quicker or slower in accordance with my performance. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Playa del coco is nice though not the best place in Costa Rica as the beach is pretty crowded on weekends and the area around the beach is not as natural and beautiful as it is more on the south of Guanacaste coast. Regarding the diving experience, it has been very good. The staff was very professional but friendly at... More

Friendly and helpful owners and staff. They took some of their precious time to answer the multiple emails/questions we sent before going there. They even managed, after 4h of hard work, to unlock my car (brillant as I was, I decided it was a good idea to forget my keys inside the car). I did some adventure dives with a... More
