The only PADI dive centre on Lake Atitlan, offering a unique dive experience. No coral reefs or tropical fish, instead see freshwater fish, crabs, plants, volcanic hotspots and rock formations. Fun dives for certified divers, learn to dive with the PADI open water courses or even take the PADI Altitude Specialty. Based at La Iguana Perdida, in front of the dock at Santa Cruz.
