What our customers are saying:

Had a great trip to Cano Island Reserve with Costa Rica Divers. Two dives and a visit to the island allowed me to see first hand the beauty of our oceans.

Great dive center! Peter is a really good instructor, our group completed the dives for our certificates with him. I had 8 dives with Peter and his crew at Caño Island. Highly recommended!

We completed our open water certification with Piotr and it was such a great experience! He’s very knowledgeable and made the course fun. We will definitely come back!

Where is our dive center located?

Our home is the small town of Uvita on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. It is located just a few hours’ drive from the country’s capital, San José. Uvita is also home to the first marine national park in Central America – Marino Ballena National Park. From Uvita it is not far to the magical island of Isla del Cano and the wildest of the national parks – Corcovado. Our dive center has a permit to conduct activities and tours in all these wonderful places. 

What is a PADI Dive Center?

We are proud to say that we are a PADI Accredited Diving Center. This means not only high quality services and training, but also adequate technical and logistical preparation. In order to obtain the status of a PADI Dive Center, it is necessary to meet a number of strict conditions and at all times provide services at the required level. If you are thinking about choosing the right place for a diving course, PADI Dive Centers will be your best choice.

How can I check the status of a dive center?

The PADI Accredited Dive Center is a guarantee of a high level of service and adequate technical support. Obtaining the status is a multi-step process that requires proof of high quality service. However, PADI Dive Center status is only granted for one year and we must renew our license every year. This is to keep a solid level of service and show customers that they have made the right choice. On the official PADI website you can check whether the dive school of your choice has active dive center status.

How do I check my dive instructor license?

Another important consideration when choosing a dive center is the instructor’s license. Any instructor who wants to teach diving courses must have a valid instructor’s license, which must be renewed annually. This ensures not only quality training, but also that we are up to date with industry standards. As with the dive center license, instructors also have different levels of certification to teach different levels of courses. At Costa Rica Divers, we train at all levels, from basic courses through specialized courses such as night diving, to professional licenses. If you want to learn more about the dive instructor license here is a detailed guide on the subject: how to check a dive instructor’s credentials?

About me

Ever since I discovered climbing and diving for myself, I knew it would be a never-ending adventure. That since there are so many interesting places above and below the water in the world, why not make it possible for everyone to see them. I have been a mountain climber and cave explorer most of my life and have had the honor of participating in many amazing exploration expeditions. I have been professionally involved in scuba diving and dive training for more than a dozen years now.

At Costa Rica Divers, I am the manager and chief instructor. We take great care of the quality of training, so I personally teach or supervise all dive courses. Dive and snorkel tours led by our guides and Divemasters are also directly coordinated by me. You are in good hands!
