Costa Rica Divers

Welcome to our diving blog

At Costa Rica Divers, we are divers first and foremost. We do it for the love of the ocean and its inhabitants. We like to share our knowledge on topics that are close to us and in which we have something to say. Because we live in Costa Rica, we know the specifics of diving in the tropics, but that doesn’t mean our experience ends there. Diving in cold waters, in side mount configuration, or cave diving are our passions. We invite you to read our blog and benefit from our experience. We also encourage you to like our profile on Facebook, where often interesting things happen!
