The choice of the cenotes "El Pit" and "Dream Gate" It has been spectacular there are no words and Caesar transmits a much needed security in this type of Diving.
We did two dives in Dos Ojos Cenote and one in Tajma Ha. Both cenotes were beautiful, but we preferred Tajma Ha. Pura Vida was very helpful and made sure that we were prepared for our first cavern div... more »
NOTHING BUT THE BEST! My girlfriend and I found the place while casually walking. We both decided this was the place to do it. Started out by fitting our gear (all gear is great and in perfect condition). Our dive guide, Sergio, was the man!!! We decided to do the dive in Cozumel which was the right decision. I recommend it 100%. We saw turtles, rays, and even a shark! Sergio ensured we were safe and guided us along the dive, ensuring we saw everything!!! Our dive group consisted of only my girlfriend, the guide, and myself! OTHER PLACES HAD GROUPS WITH A 10-1 ratio of people to guide. Always ask how many people per group!!! This shop is great with that. We were able to see everything and were not crowded like other dive shops. Also, on the way to another dive, one of the divers on the back of our boat spotted a DROWNING DIVER. The divers guide did not even realize. He was out of energy and struggling to stay above water! As a previous lifeguard, I immediately recognized the serious danger this individual was in, probably under 30 seconds from going unconscious. Before I could take off any gear and get to the edge to jump in, Sergio dove in, swam to the individual and carried the drowning victim back to his boat. HIS BOAT l, boat crew, AND DIVE GUIDE DID NOT CARE! They did not jump in, did not throw a float, NOTHING!!!! The boat crew all saw and decided to watch and let this poor man drown!!!! For whatever reason he was not able to inflate his bcd! He was no longer able to yell and was barely staying above water when our dive guide got to him USE THIS DIVE SHOP TO DIVE, avoid all others!!! I will only recommend this place!!! Sergio is the best! Try to get him...although I’m sure all of their guide are great! Pros: Group size All costs covered Many different possible dives Dive crew cares and is concerned with your safety along with the safety of others Well priced Great gear Doesn’t let their divers drown First time diver friendly Gets you the most for your money Cons: NONE
Great diving club. We went on a dive with them in the shores of Playa. Sergio was amazing, helped us a lot with the gear and explained everything super clearly we saw tons of fish and found some of the biggest Moray eels I've seen in my life. Highly recommended
