reputable dive shops

Bring on the recommendations. Of the four of us, I'm the only landlubber. There's one advanced diver, one rescue diver, and one junior open water diver in our family so the possibilities are endless LOL.

1. Re: reputable dive shops

hello there! There are several dive operations on the island and there was some recent discussion on the www.islamujeres.info forum.

This is a quote from that discussion from a local that lives on Isla and used to work at one of the dive businesses: "...Crystal Divers DOES have a PADI Discover Scuba Class...I have referred several friends and clients there with great results. Their Instructor is very good, PADI Certified, and in current teaching status, and speaks completely fluent English...so communication is never a problem.

They are located almost at the intersection of Rueda Medina and Matamoros, before you reach Hotel Vistilmar...the owners name is Emilio....when you arrive, drop by and check them out..."

This is who my spouse used for diving in Jan and had a great time. :)

Gracias coalminer.

Was your wife already certified or did she do the PADI course there?

Spouse did the Padi open water certification at Aqua Adventures . . . but then that dive instructor opened her own business . . . Crystal Diver a year or so later, so kept with the dive instructor. This instructor sadly left Isla a year or so ago, but Emilio took over the shop and is doing very well. Hope that helps. You also might post on the www.islamujeres.info for more information - lots more posting action there than TA. :)

Gracias, again.

You're right -- this site is quite quiet. Thanks for the suggestion regarding the other site.
