I had a great day of diving with Scuba Cancun! The owner Juan Carlos set me up with gear. My Dive Master was Francisco (Cisco) and the skipper was Antonio. Two important things to keep in mind: 1. This is “Cancun Scuba” not Scuba Cancun. My taxi driver and took me to Scuba Cancun which is about a mile down... More

Chris the Instructor with Scuba Cancun, is the best. He has over 20 years experience in Cave Diving. He picked me up at my resort right on time, and he had all the safety gear, and he took us to the Cenotes. We went to Choc-mool, and Big Brother. He knows every inch of those caves. We saw stalactites, and... More

This was our first diving experience outside of our regular diving club in Canada, and we couldn't have picked a better excursion with a better organisation. The communication prior to our arrival in Mexico, as well as after, was excellent. We were met by Juan Carlos, on time (early) and provided a run down of what to expect on our... More

My wife and I traveled to Cancun last week for a dive trip. The shore port was closed, and so Juan Carlos suggested we make a Cenote' dive instead. We had a great time, they handled transportation and food as well. Juan Carlos was patient, informative and fun. I highly reccomend them.

Booked our first scuba adventure. Was expecting a classroom. We sat outside with Juan Carlos as he explained the equipment. We practiced in the pool for a bit and then went on our adventure. It was just the two of us and was so lovely. Juan took pictures of our experience and sent them to us that day at no... More

Just came back from 2 days scuba diving in the Cozumel reefs! Unbelievable experience, the amount of sea live we saw was breathtaking! Our guide Juan Carlos Garrido was not only extremely knowledgeable and experienced, he went out of his way to make the experience a truly memorable one. I am new to diving (only recently Open Water Certified) and... More

We took a day off on our way to Cozumel to visit the underwater museum and do a reef dive. We ended up with one dive master for just for the two of us. These fun and simple dives were good practice before our more complex Cozumel dives. The Scuba center was professional, helpful, and friendly. They were also good... More

I have been diving for 23 years and have never dove in Cancun. I found Juan Carlos and Cancun Scuba Center on Tripadvisor and gave them a try. I could not have been more pleased. Juan Carlos and his staff were excellent. Before we arrived he told me that he takes only small groups, and when I arrived there were... More

I believe there is only one way of being the best at what you do: by having passion for and fun when doing your job. That's exactly the case of Juan Carlos, our dive master in a 2-day diving experience (1 day in Cancun, 1 day in Cozumel). Since the very first second we met Juan Carlos he made sure... More
