La Calypso was reccomended to us by a friend and what a reccomendation it was. Alex was an amazing guide, great knowledge of the culture, the environment, the area and spoke fluent English and Spanish (as well as Itailian). The Centoes were magical and swimming with the giant turtles is a must do! Highly reccommended to hook up with these folks, a highlight of our time in Tulum for sure!

Dove with La Calypso and guides Julia and Nicolas several times in Feb, I cannot fault the sevice we recieved one bit. We booked via the internet with Helene who gave us brilliant advice and even sourced a wonderful nanny for our daughter for us so we could dive together. We caught the collectivo to La Calyspo from our resort Dreams Tulum for 30 pesos.
The guides were fun and professional and we felt we truely made friends. Unfortunatly our daughter bcame sick the second week so we did not venture far from the resort that week but I would come back and dive with La Calypso again and again. Thank you.

My wife and I visited Tulum this past weekend and spent the afternoon with Daniel from La Calypso. We had a great time. My wife does not dive, but she came along and snorkeled in Grand Cenote. This was my 15th or so dive in the Caribbean area. It was amazing. I have wanted to experience the Halocline ever since I heard about it 15 years ago, and let me tell you it is surreal. Daniel is an excellent guide, waiting at the gate when we arrived and very professional. Thank you very much for a great experience. Hope to see you next year! Scott and Stephanie.

We returned from Tulum last week, and our trips with the divemasters and staff at La Calypso were some of the highlights of our trip. The owners and staff are all very friendly, and their rates are a great value for the wonderful service, high quality equipment and small groups that you will be diving with.

Our first experience was snorkeling with Alex at Sac-Actun caves, particularly the pet cemetery cave. It was thrillingly beautiful, and Alex was a great guide. He taught us a lot about the history of the caves and the respectful way to swim in them. We also swam with the sea turtles at Akumal with him.

We also completed our open water dives with Nico to become PADI certified. Nico was a great leader, and we really enjoyed our two trips to the reef off of Tulum with him. Nothing but great things to say about all of our experiences with La Calypso. We will definitely be back! Thank you to Nico and Helene, Nico T., and Alex.

Awesome snorkeling trip!!! We did the Akumal sea turtles and Dos Ojos... had such an awesome time. Dos Ojos was one of the coolest places I've ever been. Our guide was really nice and knowledgeable.
