I completed my open water and advanced open water courses with Calipso in the beautiful, secluded setting of Tayrona National Park. I cannot recommend their highly professional, yet relaxed, approach to the course enough. Value for money, a high level of service and a friendly atmosphere meant that this experience has been a highlight of my South America adventure.

I took the Fun Dive Safari at "Playa del Amor" for two days and it was an amazing experience. The diving spots are full of live, the beach is lovely and exclusive, the accommodation in a beach with no electricity is an experience by itself, the food is good as well. Totally recommended

I had the best time of my Colombia trip doing the Open Water Diver course in Tayrona national park. The location was our little paradise for those three days with no one else near. The instructors/ staff were really friendly, professional and most of all passionate about their work. Some people of the group had problems with going underwater and... More

I did the safari open water course and really enjoyed it. The setting is stunning, on a beach in Tayrona which is only accessed by Calipso. I felt the course was very well-instructed and we got to do some really great diving. Food prepared by Toto was delicious and plentiful. Would highly recommend this experience!

I went on the 3 day dive safari to Tayrona National Park. Calipso are the only dive shop who offer this inside the park. It was a great few days, well organised, plenty of diving and also plenty of time to chill on the beach which you have all to yourselves. One of my South American highlights!

My girlfriend and I wanted to do our Open Water Course, so we started to do our research of all the diving schools in Taganga. After calling almost every school, we decided to do it with Calipso. We definitely chose the right one. From day one, we immediately felt like home. They (Maribel & Roberto) provided us with a room,... More

We did the one day diving plan at Tayrona. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the lunch provided was excellent (fried fish). The beach where we stayed while we were not diving was awesome. The boat ride from Taganga to Tayrona is really bumpy (the other way around, Tayrona-Taganga is better).

This was the by far the best thing I did on the Carib coast. Going diving ( did the 3 day safari, but dived again & again) with Roberto, Eduardo, Barak, Rachel was like diving with family. I was so relaxed that Ive never used so little air diving. Beautiful coral, fabulous sea life all around. Lobsters, octopuses, tropical fish... More
