Visiting Akumal for the second time last week, I (recently "Open Water" qualified) wanted to go diving with my son (a returning "Open Water"qualified diver) and my brother (an experienced diver). The staff, under Alvaro's leadership, simply worked around colds, inconvenient arrivals and departures and a little more wind than usual to make us more confident together and create memorabl;e family diving experiences, including a superb shark dive. The humour and banter is constant but never compromises their vigilance. They simply deliver maximum enjoyment in complete safety. Talking to other people with whom we dived, who had travelled from other parts of the Riviera Maya, it was clear that whether instructors or newbies they felt the same. I will be diving (and laughing) with them again next year.
