We went to Costa Rica in April 2015 for our honeymoon. We stayed in the Flamingo Beach Resort (where Aquacenter have a rep) but we'd contacted the dive chool before hand to make arrangements and confirm availability.

So this place was just down the hill from where we were staying so went to check it out. Set yp a dive for the next morning. We didn't bring any gear because didn't know if we would dive or not. It was $100 a person but we needed everything. Next morning we had 4 divers and two dive masters.... More

Been to many diving trips but this one was one of the best organized and easy for the divers. Joined the 2 tank dive trip to the Catalina's and it was great. Everything was set so the divers will be most safe and comfortable. Starting with leaving shoes and flip flops on shore, BCs and tanks hooked,and ready to go... More

Aquacenter has great people and equipment to dive with. We had Risky, Agnus and Rafiel on our boat and they are a fun and experienced group. They go to lengths to make sure that you are safe and comfortable. For example Rafiel stays underwater and takes your fins off as you get on the boat. The equipment is great too,... More

The owner Eduardo Munoz was very kind and accommodating to pick us up from the hotel promptly at 7:30 am and to the site. We loved the dive masters Juan and "Nacho" they were very knowledgeable and had a passion for diving,plus they... More

I did the morning two tank dive in the Catalinas. Our diving instructor, Juan was phenomenal. It had been a while since my last dive, but Juan did a great job getting me back out there. Visibility was good, not Cozumel good, but it was a lot better than I anticipated. The currents weren't bad at all, the dive was... More

I hadn't been diving in 10 years and got quite panicked at first entry. The dive master 'Risky' was awesome in calming me down and led two excellent dives. Very easy trip, decent visibility, and plenty of fish to see.

This is a tiny shop running out of two garage bays. No frills here but they get you in the water. I took a few trips with them. The experience will vary by divemaster. Risky was by far the best that I dove with. Visibility was ok and we saw sharks, rays, big morays, occasional spotted eagle rays and tons... More
