Cortez Club in La Paz was fantastic. The staff was wonderful and so professional. I dove with them for 4 days and would absolutely use them and recommend them easily and with confidence.

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 people in my group having equipment issues. My BCD bottom air dump snapped right off... More

We had inquired for several activities with this operater and made the huge mistake to book one two-tank dive without specifically asking for the price. As a result, we had to cancel every other activity altogether, because they ripped us out of almost 500 USD, and we did not have the money any more for any other activity!!! So basically,... More

We are divers that booked a last minute trip to snorkel with the whale sharks. One of the most amazing experiences! Our guide, Lorenzo, took the time to find the whale sharks. While other boats sat clustered around one whale shark, Lorenzo took us out farther where we were surrounded by 6 at one time and no other boats! Had... More

Our first day diving with Cortez club was fantastic. We rented our BCDs and our gear was well organized on the boat. Our dive master on the first day, Alejandra, was FANTASTIC and our pre-dive brief on point. Our second day was not as great - our dive master was new and not super helpful or knowledgeable, and not decisive... More

My wife and I decided to go scuba diving for the first time. We walked into the cortez club and they were able to get us scheduled for the day we wanted to go. They were very helpful going through the safety check. My wife had never done anything like this before and was very nervous. The staff was very... More

Went during Hammerhead season, but we were a little early. The sea mounts were great. Covered in green moray eels an lots of life. Schools of skip jack, marlin, sea turtle, reef life, and plenty of macro. Definitely go on Nitrox. Dives were 70-100'. Bring your own dive computer or rent one and track your bottom times. Dove a wreck... More

My friends and I spent a week diving with Cortez Club. First, on the reservation process, I had many kinds of personal problems, even having to delay our trip for a whole year, and they were great throughout the whole thing. After arriving La Paz, everything worked perfect, they took great care of us, our equipment, and our dives. After... More

We (my husband and myself) wanted to scuba a coral reef we snorkel at, and been to many times. Wanted to get a bit deeper than we can with just mask and fins as we are not freedivers by any means. This was a great chance to do a beach entry, and practice a few skills, in a place we... More
