I recently dove with Cortez Club in La Paz, Baja, Mexico. I chose the shop entirely because of its PADI 5-star rating. I was extremely disappointed in their safety and communication. They were unsafe. Cortez Club needs to get their act together. I am a...More

IN SHORT: I'd absolutely recommend scuba in La Paz. My experience with this operator gives me significant concerns around safety, honesty, and value. BAD: * Faulty equipment. All of their equipment we saw seems pretty worn down, and it's reflected by 4 of the 5...More
