I have been certified by Freddy nearly 15 years ago. Since then he has gotten his own business, bought a bigger boat, and always makes the dives personal and professional. There isn't anyone on Cozumel could have a better operation than Freddy. Abraham as a divemaster is excellent and kept a really good eye on our group of 6. I... More

We are a family of four divers who are experienced. From the first hello with Freddy we knew that the diving experience with his company would be excellent. Freddy is probably one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Very genuine, sincere and passionate of his heritage and what the area has to offer. The diving was some of... More

Freddy and Cheri were professional, friendly, and accomodating. I did my open water certification course with Mestizo Divers and I can`t recommend them enough. In Cozumel there are open water courses for less than $300 where you are on a cattle boat with up to 12 other novices and they try and get you through the PADI requirements in 3... More

Freddy and his wife were incredibly gracious. We had great instruction, learned about the local reefs and shared his extensive knowledge with us. We were treated to fresh fruit and water and we able to drift dive some of the most beautiful spots you could imagine. A truly great experience with a good family business.

We dove multiple tanks with Mestizo Divers on each of 5 days in late March, and it was even better than we were hoping--from all the great reviews. This is the exact opposite of a 'cattle boat.' It is a local family run operation with long experience that specializes in small group diving, with a max of 6 divers. Freddy... More

Best dive operation, hands down. A great, comfortable boat but only takes 6 divers for safety and to not be a "cattle boat". The owner is a one man operation who has been diving these reefs for decades. He has a love of diving, Cozumel, and a respect for the reefs and their inhabitants. He expects the same of his... More

If you're tired of diving on a boat with 12+ divers and want a real diving experience I recommend Mestizo Divers (The boat is rated for 12 but they never take more than 6 divers at a time). I invited 3 buddies down for a 4 day diving trip and had an amazing time. The Boat was terrific (clean, fresh... More

We have been diving in Cozumel for several years and have tried many companies. Freddy at Mestizo divers is the very best. We have been looking for a company that pays close attention to details, is safe and goes out early to beat the crowd. Freddy takes great care with his boat and is prepared for everything. He only takes... More

My husband and I have stayed in Cozumel and have tried several different dive operators. Mestizo Divers is truly exceptional!! They have a comfortable boat and they only take a maximum of 6 divers, even though the boat could handle more divers. Freddy makes your safety and comfort his number one priority. He will allow you to dive to your... More

I have been diving with ( Mestizo Divers) Freddy Contreras for several years and in that time I have been with other dive operators. None even come close to Freddy's expertise and knowledge.
