Booked a day of snorkelling including Cano Island. We booked with the location in Uvita in early Dec. 2016 for our trip in Jan. 2017. They e mailed us the day before to show up later then originally planned, now 7:30 for our trip. When we arrived they had clearly dumped us for a dive trip. They could care a... More

We selected Isla Cano for our open water dives. The boat was comfortable, and their gear was in really good condition. As an unexpected bonus, we saw a large pod... More

We were pleased to have both paddle boarded (SUP) and surfed a couple times with Costa Rica Dive and Surf. Robert and Roberto were helpful in getting us set up. They even picked us up after paddle boarding down the local river. We were pleased with their assistance and instruction.

The crew was awesome - My flight was delayed and we missed our original reservation and even thought their policy was to keep my deposit - They were wonderful to allow us to book on another day and enjoy a wonderful scuba dive with Wuan and crew as well as snorkel for my daughter. We were taken care of completely... More

Wonderful staff.They enjoy so much what they do , it's like they are part of the guests:) As for the dive, I have dove all over and unfortunately the actual dive did not have any special events or things to see. The rocks were bare, fish ok the best was the sand sharks. Visibility was not great so for $170.00... More

Awesome trip. I was told by other dive shops the visibility would be poor due to the rainy season, but Costa Rica Dive and Surf assured me it would be fine out near the island. They were absolutely right. Visibility was great. We had 2 great dives by the island, saw lots of cool stuff and had great guides along... More

We drove down form Manuel Antonio to meet with them and were so pleasantly surprised with the shop and it's proximity to the beach. We were greeted by Willie and Ian and both were super efficient making sure we had all of the... More

After reviewing many other snorkel and dive tours, we booked with Costa Rica Dive and Surf in Uvita. Our trip took us to Cano Island for two different snorkel opportunities. The crew was knowledgeable and made us all feel very comfortable. One person in our group just went for the boat ride and island fun and they still made this... More
