Hi Natalia, My friend and his wife recommended your dive shop. They have used you 3-4 times over the last several years and couldn't say enough about how wonderful you were to them. I arrive this Friday, August 19th (staying for 6 days) and staying at Sandos de Playacar. Although I am certified I haven't dived in years and before that very little. I would love to dive when we are there. I arrive with my 2 adult children. I would want them to snorkel and I would love to dive but would need an experienced diver with me. I actually have to search for my PADI certification. One time they couldn't find it when I was in Florida so I my friend and I couldn't dive. :-( Hoping this will won't be the case. Do you pick up at this resort? About how much would does it cost me, renting all equipment? Dee
