He answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly, went out... More

I can't speak highly enough of Alvaro and his company, Always Diving. He is the best dive master you could hope to dive with in Cancun or the surrounding area. My daughters and I went to Cancun to finish our dive certification by doing the open water dives. We didn't realize how completely unprepared we were for diving (our classroom... More

Before going to Playa del Carmen, I got so many negative reviews about how beginners should not dive the cenotes. I was almost convinced until I saw Alvaro's post somewhere and how he was sooo confident that beginners could do it. I emailed him and decided to go with him. He was amazing! He made our dive fun, easy, learned... More

Alvaro was a great instructor, and made sure we learned the skills needed to dive before we went on our dives. Also, It took my ears a bit longer than the others' to adjust to the pressure going down and back up, and he was very patient, taking me down individually and stopping constantly to make sure my ears were...

Alvaro and Martin are fabulous. Alvaro Gonzalez runs the operation and is a 30+ year veteran of Cancun's dive spots. He is a compassionate, knowledgeable professional. In my 40 years of diving, I can safely say that Alvaro and Martin bring together the perfect portions of diving expertise and the right attitude of having a good time while in the... More

I looked up the best scuba instructors in Cancun on Google and found Alvaro's shop, Always Diving. The prices were fair, and they don't take you with big groups. Fabio, our diving instructor, took my girlfriend and I out for 2 lessons with just us two. They were very thorough yet fun, and we learned how to scuba and got... More

This is my second time to use Always Diving in Cancun. Once again I cannot say enough about Alvaro and his team. They worked diligently with me in scheduling my PADI Recue Diver Course.
