Best place to dive in the Caribbean. Friendliest dive shop with a terrific scuba experience. Plenty of marine life both large and small. —
Mi recomendación al llegar a la isla es olvidarse de horarios y de la rigidez de la vida, la cultura e idiosincrasia de sus habitantes no les va a permitir casi que planear nada, son personas muy flexibles así que solo planeé hacer lo que pueda y aproveche cada momento....
Muchas gracias, —

Tuve la oportunidad de bucear hace un par de meses con Felipe y en verdad fue una experiencia increíble, los cursos son prácticos y divertidos, la biodiversidad bajo el agua es fantástica. Vale la pena conocer y bucear en Providencia, la calidez humana, los paisajes, comida, etc., permiten a cualquier persona tener unas excelentes vacaciones. —
Muchas gracias por ayudarme a sobreponer el miedo al agua. Sin duda no lo habría logrado sin la ayuda de Fepo y Pichi. Ambos son grandes personas, excelentes buzos. Muchas gracias por su paciencia, un abrazo a Jim. Iré muy pronto a visitarlos. —
