Mauricio sold me on the diving over any other shop because he was honest that the visibility was gonna suck, and that Rays were not in season, so just promised us fish. Fernando was our dive master and Alejandro was the tail end. They were both nice, and it was just our party of 3 on the trip. I'm usually... More

The shop was in a fairly convenient location next to the beach. We got onto the boat using a skiff. The group had 8 divers and about as many snorkelers. The day was windy and rough, and the dive locations were chosen so the boat could stay close to the snorkelers. The dive locations weren't great. There wasn't much to... More

I'd like to separate my review on two points: - impression from the center: nothing special - well-well-worn wet suit with limited option for 3 mm long, BCDs and regs functional (not new, but not bad), dive masters (Nacho and Brian) were attentive and providing a good briefing, no line with buoy during dives to keep divers in place before...

My friend is a master diver and I am a rescue diver. We spent the week diving with Aquacenter. We encountered over 10 Manta Rays and over 8 white tipped sharks. This dive operation is very safe, friendly and professional. Each day we were picked up from the Flamingo Villas and everything was easy. Also, snacks, water and juice is... More

Please take note: dive shop in down by the marina behind the Mariner Inn. We initially thought the shop was in town beside one of their signs. This sign is only for advertisement. Arrive on time! Because of us going to the sign first instead of the dive shop, we were 15 minutes late to the shop and the boat... More

We had an excellent two days worth of diving with Aqua Center. Five dives over two days with safe, friendly and attentive dive masters. The trip was very well organized and the rental equipment was in sound shape. The crew was friendly and adept at finding great wildlife--half a dozen sharks, lots of rays and impressive schools of fish. We... More

Highlight of the trip for sure! Only place that all the staff was constantly smiling and very friendly and helpful. Our dive master (John Alty) did an extent debrief of the area. Beautiful clear waters, massive schools of fish, all types of rays including some huge Manta Rays. A few white tip sharks. They offered some nice refreshments between dives.... More

My daughter and I took a 4 hour snorkeling trip with Aquacenter. The crew was awesome and super helpful. Tour price was very reasonable. They came to pick us up at our hotel in Brasilito, provided water and snacks during the trip. Sent us out with a guide to point things out and guide us around out in the water.... More
