Much more than just a dive center, we also offer guided snorkel trips to the fabulous Cayo Levantado (Bacardi Island), Playa Jackson (a sunken island), Playa Ermitanio ( the Ermite beach) and Cabo Cabron National Park.

We went there as complete beginners, no diving experience whatsoever. We did the tandem dive and it was absolutely amazing! That was the highlight of our vacation.
