First of all, the dives themselves were awesome. My instructor was good, I was happy about it. I did my open water with Otro Mundo but I think we were diving with someone else in Ayange. Anyway, we didnt get ANY snacks, not even a water bottle during two long days of practise and dives. Also, I dont know whats... More

The dive was not organised properly and they did not give what they prommised. After first dive the Police was on the dive boat because the owner had not payed for the boat to be in the water so the second dive never happend. Also the equipment was old. We did not even get all off our money back. Really... More

We had the most terrible experience at Otro Mundo in our entire diving history. First of all, the equipment is very old - wetsuits had holes, were worn out and no one even asked us which sizes of BCDs we wanted (mine was much oversized...). Secondly, after the first dive (we were supposed to have two) we were stopped by... More

I did my OWC and it was great! Natty was a great instructor and all of the other staff were really cool and friendly! We saw loads of awesome things diving too. Also a tip - negotiate the price you pay.

I went on a school trip with the company Camps International. On the trip we travelled around Ecuador helping out the community and such. For the last week we stayed at a camp adjacent to this centre. Whilst there we built a turtle school as well as 15 octopus houses. We took it in turns to do project work or... More

Although the dive was excellent, the costumer service could be better. The guy at the desk didnt know what he was talking about, the dau of the dive they get there late and were completely disorganized. No car, no plan, nothing was ready and its as if we just showed up out of no where and ask the equipment right... More

Great staff, great diving. I took a school group here from the UK to complete their open water course. We saw whales breaching the water on the first day, swam with turtles and stingrays. Pablo and his team were amazing. They were safe, organised, and excellent fun and pushed us all to get the best experience possible. Cannot thank you... More

I had an awesome day diving, everyone was really helpful and efficient I felt totally safe and went to two dive sights which were full of amazing fish. I became an Advanced diver with them and I am so glad that I did it.
