Quepos / Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

Learn to dive (4 days / 3 nights. Incl. 4 dives)

The diving
The PADI Open Water Diver is the most recognized diver certification in the dive industry and will allow you to dive anywhere in the world, independent of professional supervision, to a maximum depth of 18m.
Choosing the right place for your initial diving course is vital. The professionalism of the dive center and the instructor is just as important as the diving itself. Pair up incredible jungle on land with amazing diving in the ocean and a top class dive center in Quepos for your Open Water Course and you will have an experience for life.

The diving in Manuel Antonio is different. The beauty of the reef here is not the corals growing in it, but the topography of the old lava flows. Big boulders, underwater mazes and dramatic walls are what you will be surrounded by. Take these incredible formations and add a healthy marine life to it such as most common reef fish, some funky octopus and a good variety of eels and crustaceans. For the larger pelagic, you might get lucky with anything from reef sharks, rays, sea turtles, dolphins and in season the majestic humpback whales and manta rays (Dec - April).

Together with your instructor you will have a fun, safe and different first experience in diving.


Surrounded by rainforest filled with monkeys and exotic birds, Puerto Quepos drapes itself across a tropical inlet surrounded by rainforest. The village center is a colorful six-block square of restaurants, bars, hotels, bakeries, and art galleries all fronted by the main beach and harbour.
The high season runs through the drier months of December to April and explodes during Semana Santa or Easter. Quepos fills to the brim with families, surfers, backpackers, ecotourists and gay jet-setters, all as colorful and intriguing as the flora and fauna surrounding the village. All year round, world travelers are discovering the area.
