We booked a local snorkel trip that left out of Uvita. Our group of 4 were the only group on the boat, so we had two guides and a captain all to ourselves! Their names were Michael, David, & Dario, and they could not have been any better! They started out by giving us a local tour of the shoreline... More

Wife and I did the snorkel tour of Caño Island out of Uvita. The snorkeling was ok. Did two 40 minute swims. First one we saw plenty of fish and a turtle that dug up a sea cucumber and brought it to the surface 3' from us to eat. Very exciting. Second swim was cloudier and was just ok. Snorkeling... More

My husband and I took the Cano Island scuba trip. It's an all day excursion to remote Cano Island where we did two dives. They also take snorkelers. I'm a nervous scuba diver and they helped me greatly with equipment, Yan and his team were very patient and nice. We saw turtles, a couple rays, schools of jacks and Yan... More

Tours to Caño Island are expensive in general, so this is also not not an easily affordable tour. Although totally worth it. Boat in good conditions, perfect gear, brief and debrief perfect, boat crew experienced and amazing guides. Yan and Willy really knew how to explain things and make the best out of our experience. Caño itself is amazing, lots... More

My son just completed his Junior Open Water dive certification with Costa Rica Dive & Surf in Uvita. From the beginning until the end, it was a super experience. The staff was helpful, friendly and professional. We were blessed to get paired with James Horton, one of their dive instructors, who not only took great care of my son in... More

Booked a day of snorkelling including Cano Island. We booked with the location in Uvita in early Dec. 2016 for our trip in Jan. 2017. They e mailed us the day before to show up later then originally planned, now 7:30 for our trip. When we arrived they had clearly dumped us for a dive trip. They could care a... More

We want to become certified divers and selected Costa Rica Dive and Surf in Uvita as our dive school. I highly recommend it. The instructors are kind with incredible patience. We selected Isla Cano for our open water dives. The boat was comfortable, and their gear was in really good condition. As an unexpected bonus, we saw a large pod... More

We were pleased to have both paddle boarded (SUP) and surfed a couple times with Costa Rica Dive and Surf. Robert and Roberto were helpful in getting us set up. They even picked us up after paddle boarding down the local river. We were pleased with their assistance and instruction.

The crew was awesome - My flight was delayed and we missed our original reservation and even thought their policy was to keep my deposit - They were wonderful to allow us to book on another day and enjoy a wonderful scuba dive with Wuan and crew as well as snorkel for my daughter. We were taken care of completely... More
