My husband and I had the pleasure of diving with Rich Coast on 4 days for a total of 8 dives. We had the pleasure of diving with Floor, Carlos, Francisco and Steve. All were absolutely fun and amazing divers. Carlos spent extra time with my husband and gave him pointers and helped him have an awesome experience. This dive... More

Rich Coast Diving and their dive instructors are the most accommodating people we've met in the dive business! We have four great dives on two separate mornings! Rich coast diving works efficiently while also being flexible for their customers.

Went snorkeling with these guys the day after hurricane Otto. Visibility in the water was bad due to the hurricane. The outfit was professional and I had a guide to look over and make sure I did not drown and showing me where to swim to find stuff. Got sea sick slightly due to my own fault as I did... More

I did my open water certificate with Rich Coast Instructor, Floor and her assistant Ed. They are both amazing! Always very calm and patient. I felt like everything was always under control. They have given me the confidence to dive! And inspired me to continue dive training. I HIGHLY recommend Rich Coast Dive and I HIGHLY recommend Floor as an... More

Me and my husband visited Costa Rica in February and we were looking for place where to do our Adventure Open Water course. Rich Coast Diving was a great choice. Not only that it was the best value for money (they offered 1 fun dive on top of the 5 dives during the course) but they were very helpful and... More

Great people and they keep a low ratio of dive masters to divers which is super important. Good equipment, nice boat and great location for a quick ride out to many diving sites just off Playa Coco

We had an excellent experience through all three days of training, from our introductory pool dives through all of our open water dives. Sergio was an incredible teacher and was both friendly and patient as we were both completely new to diving. By the end of the trip we felt very comfortable in the water and can't wait to dive...

We went out snorkelling yesterday! The people are very professional and kind. I loved the prices cuz everyone else was double. They were located a few blocks from the beach. The staff took the time to get to know us as we were heading out to our location. And they didn't push for a tip! No pressure! Definitely recommend this... More
