Poto took good care of us during our early afternoon snorkeling trip. I love the coast line of Zihuat, this adventure was a nice break from the beach.

I came to Mexico for 3 months especially to do a diving course. Thanks to Poto I have achieved a Dive Master certificate. I have enjoyed learning various skills, working with clients from around the world. And most of all I have gained a new great friend. Poto is a fantastic diving mentor and I will definately be back soon!... More

Poto and Fred were great. Snorkeling was good and the Panga boat was all you needed. We (9) had the boat to ourselves brought lunch and drinks. Fantastic.

The whole experience (we went twice) was top notch from start to finish. And I think the best part is that they seem to have as much fun as their clients! Thanks so... More

Poto is a fantastic instructor! His calmness and chilled out vibe helps to calm down your nerves before unknown and first dive in a Pacific Ocean! Great professional and fun team! Really friendly! I will be back for sure! :) I definitely recommend Zihuatanejo Dive Center!
