Javier and the rest of the crew are fantastic. What a great snorkel excursion. The boat was just the right size to get up close and personal. We got to stop on a small island or sandbar with thousands of shells to collect and many hermit crabs. We also stopped at Momo island where Survivor is filmed. The highlight was a nice reef with so many different fish to snorkel. Water and fresh pineapple are available onboard. They don't push souvenirs or anything just good snorkeling and friendly advice.

These guys are great! Can't recommend them highly enough.....we took the snorkeling tour on two separate days. The very reasonable fee includes your snorkeling gear if you need it, 3 hours in their boat including stops at 4 different islands for shelling, snorkeling, or just beaching it. Heavenly!! And yes, we saw dolphins - 4 of them - alongside our boat.

For the last 9 years, I have taken a group of college biology students to Panama. We always do a couple of snorkel trips with Guillermo and Roxanne at Coral Dreams. I can honestly say that in all those years, I can't say anything but great things about them. They have always been professional, accommodating, safe, informative, flexible, and great to get along with. They are super people running a super business.

Ive been to Contadora once a year for th past three years and go diving every time. Although visibility wasn't that great in our last trip we saw some amazing things. My friends were on their first dive after getting certified and Guillermo was very helpful in making them feel comfortable and have a pleasant dive.
Not many people know there is a dive center in Contadora, its a good hidden secret :)

Fabulous is the word that describes Coral Dreams the best! Their service is incredibly good: the staff is very friendly, attentive and knowledgable. The facilities are perfect and the scenery is just: wow! We went diving with Guillermo on a Saturday early morning and, although the group consisted of beginners and more experienced divers, he knew exactly how to satisfy everyone! Both in English and in Spanish, his instructions were very clear. He gave me a lot of confidence before descending and under water his instructions remained straight forward and easy to understand. These dives where excellent! Besides all the schools of beautiful, big fish, we spotted a Goliath Grouper and StingRay! This is definitely one of my favorite dive spots in Panama and I can't wait to come back for more!

Furthermore, Guillermo and Roxane have a room for rent called Blue Dreams. One can find the link to this room on airbnb.com. It's a gorgeous room, well taken care of and super comfortable! Much better than any hotel on the island. Located close to several wonderful beaches, but in a private area, makes Blue Dreams a real pleasure to spend your time at Isla Contadora! We were treated like royalties, everything we needed was available and it gave our weekend a special touch! Hopefully we will be back soon!
