This experience was above and beyond, they keep the groups small so it’s a very personal experience. We booked theough Hugo, and our divers were Elenarah, Alba and Samual. I recommend this fully if you are thinking about trying scuba diving.

All dive crew were helpful and friendly and instructor was great and made my 10 year old son feel relaxed and safe over his 2 tank dive. Recommend a visit if staying at the Sandos resort. Pedro & Edwardo. 👍
