It is worth noting that we do not charge any hidden fees and our prices are always final and include everything you need.

Where should I stay in Costa Rica for scuba diving?

There are many interesting places to visit in Costa Rica. Despite its small size, the country has a lot to offer, and diving and snorkeling is no exception. You will find many dive sites and schools that offer PADI courses. The most popular sites are on the Pacific side, where the Isla del Cano Nature Reserve takes the lead. It is definitely worth a visit to see the wildlife of Costa Rica for yourself. The best place to start your excursions is the town of Uvita.

Does Costa Rica have good snorkeling?

Water sports in Costa Rica are not only diving or scuba diving courses, but also snorkeling. This is great fun for the whole family, and it is definitely worth going snorkeling to see the beauty of the underwater world first hand. You can even try snorkeling on the beach, you just need a mask and snorkel. However, the best snorkeling spots are often the same as the best scuba diving spots in Costa Rica. These are places where you can encounter interesting animals and you don’t have to dive deep. All you have to do is dip your face in a mask and snorkel. This is why snorkeling is a great way to spend time with your family.

Is it safe to snorkel in Costa Rica?

As with any sport, snorkeling should be done with basic safety precautions. Do not enter the water alone, and it is best to wear a life jacket when snorkeling. All of our snorkeling trips are supervised by an experienced dive instructor and lifeguard to ensure maximum safety. Although risks are minimal, a full first aid kit is always on board and the boat is in constant contact with the coast. All of the water activities and services we provide at our dive center in Costa Rica are always organized with our clients and their safety in mind. At the end of the day, it’s all about having fun and taking away only good memories. You can read more about safe snorkeling here: snorkeling in Costa Rica.
