Great experience getting to dive in three different locations (Playa Del Carmen, Cozumel and a cenote— Dos Ojos). I wasn’t PADI certified before, but Lahlo was a great instructor and answered any questions I had. I was able to get my certification on the ferry ride back from Cozumel. Lahlo is very patient and easy to talk to. I feel like I not only gained a new hobby, but a friend. He wasn’t able to dive with me on the last day, but let me know that I would be diving with Mel. She was also a great instructor and an incredible story teller.

I would recommend this to anyone who has snorkelled a few times and is considering taking the next step. Lahlo is very patient and experienced. Two minutes into the first dive I was ready to give up because I didn’t think I could do it and he calmed me down and didn’t let me quit so easily. I am very glad I didn’t quit, the whole three days were a blast and I am looking forward to doing more diving in the future because of this experience.
