Miguel and all of the staff of Ixtapa Aqua Paradise were great. I was in Zihuatenejo for a short time and wanted to dive, but I didn't make previous arrangements to do so. I contacted all of the dive shops in Zihuatenejo and nobody responded to me except Ixtapa Aqua Paradise. I was able to get 4 dives in in... More

My husband, daughter and me have dove for 5 years with Miguel at Ixtapa Aqua Paradise. Everytime we dive with them it is like diving with family. Experienced, and know all the good places to go.,

The team replied immediately to my email and were accommodating given short notice. I was given 1 hour training and next day went for diving to 2 different locations. Both Roel and Miguel are very friendly and made me feel comfortable as I'm a beginner. Overall amazing experience.

miguel replied to my email almost immediately. I had my training, two hours long then the next morning i went out. We went to two locations with his helper Royal. This guy was awesome especially since im a beginner. Saw so many types of fish. They def need more recognition than they get. 5/5 . Def coming bk here again.

I emailed from the "contact us" portion of their website and was surprised to have a response back from Miguel within minutes. I was booked in for all four of my open water dives (finishing PADI cert) over the following two days within minutes and was left with a feeling of "well, that was easy". Miguel is a great teacher,... More

Excellent experience. I was in Ixtapa and found Aqua Paradise through my hotel travel agent. Spoke in the phone quite few times with Miguel, who was very patient. I dove with them twice (two dives in each day) and everything was very simple but quite professional and with safety coming in first place. My dive partner - Roel, who works... More

Martha, the office manager at their Bertoli hotel, who I contacted before we came is charming, helpful, and exceptionally efficient. She and Miguel even picked up our equipment from our hotel and delivered it back after our last trip washed and cleaned. Taxi to... More
