What makes this Costa Rican dive trip unique?

Las Catalinas offer some of the best coastal diving in Costa Rica. With more than 12 great dive sites, if you are planning to dive during your visit to Costa Rica, Las Catalinas has to be on your list of places to dive. The islands are famous for the giant Pacific manta ray sightings which are typically seen over the winter months of December to May.

The dive center features an onsite swimming pool, full bar and restaurant, restrooms, a shower, and changing facilities, making your day as comfortable as possible. This boutique dive operator takes a maximum of only 8 divers per boat, meaning small group sizes of 4 to 5 divers per dive guide.

... Immediate attention getting back to me via email. I hate it when a dive operator has an email & website but ignore me. That was fantastic organising a trip with no hassles and immediate attention. Thank you for the fantastic advice, guidance and the booking that made my trip go without a hitch! ... -- , Canada.  [More customer reviews]
