I had an excellent time doing my first and second dives ever. Hector was very good with us and really made us comfortable during our fist dive experiences. I would recommend Buceo Sotavento to anyone who wants to have an excellent experience. Thanks again Hector and we are looking forward to seeing you next year and getting our open water licenses.

Hello everyone,
Diving in Huatulco with Hector Lara from the shop “Buceo Sotavento” for this Christmas morning was an excellent experience, the Pacific´s waters where nice and warm and the sun gave us a great tan. We had 2 immersions that morning where we appreciated a very colorful sea life diversity, we event had the chance to enjoy the company of a Carey Turtle about 3 feet wide. If you are enjoying some free time at Huatulco, try scuba diving with Hector, he is a great guy who will get you to the best places for diving and will give you a history lesson for the same price.

The dives were pretty good, no problem with the equipment. I should mention that after losing two inexperienced divers, the dive master instructed me to sit at the bottom alone around 40 feet, while he surfaced to look for him. Obviously, he never should have left me, but even worse, he never came back at all. I waited maybe 3 minutes before deciding this was stupid and surfaced on my own. He was back at the boat with the other divers and acted as if nothing had happened just saying "Good, you're back."

I made 6 dives in Huatulco: 2 nigth-dives and 4 day-dives with an awesome dive-master
The diving team is really friendly and competent
I discovered how to eat under water, to play with octopus (carefully of course :-) ), to help during obster-hunt... you can learn this only in Huatulco!! try it!
