Communication from Alvaro leading up to the visit was excellent, and Alvaro put together an exciting varied schedule. The diving with alwaysdiving once we got to Cancun was... More

This is our second time diving with Alvaro, and he has been more like a reliable friend in Cancun, than just a dive shop. When reading this review, some will say that this may only be for some, but Alvaro clearly treats everyone with friendship and respect. In more detail, my husband and sons dove with Alvaro in Cancun, in... More

We went out diving with Alvaro and Fabio with my two teenage boys. We had a wonderful wreck dive and 3 reef dives. Would definitely go again.

Alvaro and his crew at Always Diving managed a family of 6 with diverse experience and varying levels of "I don't know if I can do this" and "I can't clear my ears" and made divers out of everyone. One of my daughters had previously tried and given up. Alvaro is the most patient, calm and concise instructor I have... More

Alvaro catered to my extended family of nine (ages 15-50) for a week of incredible dives. He, Gigi, and Fabio were supportive and fun as the nine of us earned our advanced certification, always properly preparing us for what was to come, and planning exciting adventures for us to match our skill level.
